Go Ballistic

Demo version of ludicrously fast racing game released

Swedish developers Grin have released a demo version of Ballistics, which we described as "the fastest racing game on the planet .. a game that makes Wipeout look like Driving Miss Daisy". Reaching speeds of upwards of 1000 mph as you streak through a magnetic tube on your futuristic hoverbike, it's certainly not for the faint hearted and should be steered well clear of by anyone with epilepsy. The rest of you can now head over to Grin's website and download the 107Mb demo, which features the opening SkyTown track and allows you to indulge in the appropriately named Speed Trials, playable on all three difficulty levels (Rookie, Pro and Ballistics). Grin recommend that you have at least a 400MHz CPU, 128Mb of RAM and a GeForce, Radeon or Voodoo 4 class card to get the most out of the game, and if like me you have a motherboard which uses a VIA chipset, make sure to install the latest 4-in-1 driver before playing the game to cure any possible AGP problems.
