Gaming On Xbox One (Cont.)
We may not have been allowed to reveal any new details regarding Forza Motorsport 5 or Ryse: Son of Rome, but as we’ve mentioned, we also got our hands on Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Zoo Tycoon, LocoCycle, and Powerstar Golf.
LocoCycle is exactly like its name suggests. You drive a funky motorcycle that acts a little crazy. In the very beginning of the game, you’re actually being dragged by the cycle, and have to steer your way though some wild obstacles, while mowing down others for bonus points. While the game was fun in short spurts, we didn’t feel like LocoCycle really showcased the Xbox One’s capabilities.
We felt Zoo Tycoon and Powerstar Golf fell into a similar category. Both games ran and played perfectly well, but the graphics and mechanics in both games weren’t indicative of what the Xbox One can really showcase in our opinion. With that said, if you’re a fan of golf games, Powerstar Golf will likely rank high on your list. The controls in the game are easy to get a hang of, the graphics are decent, and the game is challenging, without being overly difficult. Much of the same can be said about Zoo Tycoon. If you like the Tycoon titles, Zoo Tycoon may be up your alley. It’s just not a title you’d use to show off your Xbox One.
