Calling All Cars! review

Run over convicts, bash your friends and race for points in this simple cartoon crook chase

Tackling Calling All Cars! by yourself isn't the point, though, and you haven't really played the game until you've done so with a full roster of humans. The online four-player is badass, with support for USB headsets and a split-screen option to enable two players to go online using the same PS3. But Calling All Cars! really shines as a party game, and if you can get four friends in the same room all screaming and cursing each other out, then that's worth the price of the download right there. However you decide to play it, it's guaranteed to deliver at least a few hours of entertainment - not bad for what's essentially a slick-looking minigame.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
