Flat Out 2 Review (ps2, xbox)

Xbox: Scoring a remarkable 73% from 24 reviews on Metacritic.com
Ps2: equally well with 73% from 28 reviews on Metacritic.com

Xbox Reviews Summary
An outrageous orgy of twisted metal and flying debris
One hell of a fun racing game, a tad generic
Better than it's predecessor, an adequate execution of a silly idea
Racing not quite up to scratch, but stunts are binary crack
2 has been reshaped into a competent arcade racer
Difficult controls give way to an awesome racer

Ps2 Reviews Summary
Solid racer with awesome destruction and online play
It'll drive you bonkers if you have no patience
Not a radical departure from the original game
Totally astounding achievement in terms of the physics
Single player won't take long, hugely entertaining multiplayer
Gimmicks lose their appeal, your left with a sub standard burnout

Do you write all of these story related games yourself or are you just a hub for everything and anything that's videogame related.
I only ask because since I have ghetto-net, it takes a long time to load pages. Just curious about your blog in general.

Greetings thetimerunner, all of the posts are entered by two fingers, I don't use feed sources to generate the content. When i get lucky a developer has posted a decent press blurb, I just leave out the astonishing, breathtaking, dynamic bits.

By the way Castlevania is a treasure.
