Gameplay and Features
Now days, Volvo is a leading brand which offers the highest security combined with great looks. The game is as dynamic as the cars are. There are various small features which really contribute to the whole feeling – turning on the window cleaners, lights, manual and automatic transmission. You can also take control of various statistics on your screen, maps and others.
There are numerous cars to pick from including the new S60, all Volvo's, but even the vintage models look very sharp in full racing trim. There are only two tracks, but one stands out - The Gothenburg Eco Arena, which hosts an STCC event yearly in real life.
Of course as in any other game there are lots of cons – you can't damage your car for example. Would be nice if they added some nice breaking the car feature (complete with airbags to show you how safe the Volvo is -Ed.). The loading time before the missions is too long. We have to remember that this is a free game with advertising purpose, not a racing game you dropped cash on.
Volvo has three modes of play - Quck Race, Competition and Time Attack. The names explain themself perfectly, however, Quick Race is about casual racing or a fast sneak peak of the game. Competition is the real game mode, call it a career if you want. Time Attack is for the players who seek the challenge in the game - setting records and chasing time.
