    Wow, definitely looks nice in that movie... might have to give this one a go.

    If I was VW though, I would put in some other cars as well. After all, I might want to 'compare' with some other models like the Golf/Jetta/New Beetle/Phaeton.

    Looks like a better attempt (than Audi) to use iphod as a marketing tool. Obviously VW group has learned from their first attempt. A version for Lamborghini, Bugatti and Bentley would be nice! :D.

    Car seems to have better driving dynamics than a lot of current games (lift off over bumps, a shame touching the curb doesn't send you flying!).

    Looks like it'll do a good job convincing people that the Polo will go around country lanes and streets at 90+ mph.

    It looks great and for free it'll be awesome. The graphics actually look like some of the best in a racing game so far. Only problem that I have is that at the end of the video it says:

    Get your free Version of the Volkswagen Polo Challenge 3D at the App Store in mid-March 2009.

    Which seems to be implying that there will be a paid version as well.

    Not neccesarily. It could just be a poorly worded phrase for a free game. I hope it is a free full game. It looks pretty nice

    With an early wide knowledge of marketing, I have always thought that such free games are SUPERB marketing techniques. The game oughta be good, because VW will surely not lose its brand image through a stupid game. Eagerly awaiting it!

    Visually it looks real nice but I hope it's more then just easy steering around corners, needs a little challenge or another car to race against.

    They could be in the final build, who knows.

    I agree. i think it will be free, but don't expect tons of gameplay... No challenge mode with ducklings and grannies to hit for powerups. Think auto-acceleration and more crucially auto-decelleration in 30mph zones and points off for not signalling before turning...

    It's out in the app store. It has 8 tracks, but you drive the same red polo in all of them. The graphics are quite nice. It handles much nicer than burning tires. So far the best ad-game I've seen in the app store. All you do is drive around and you're supposed to beat a given time.

    What do you mean "against you"? You have a choice; download or don't. And, god forbid, they convince you to buy a nice car!

    The only "advertising" is a presskit and more info option buried in the game menu. They are as unobtrusive as can be.
     
  20. After seeing that promo and hearing the magical word FREE.99, I had to get this. Downloading right now :cool:
