The %26ldquo;loose lips sinks ships%26rdquo; philosophy of many publishers tends to mean that many games are locked up tighter than a Quaker%26rsquo;s teenage daughter, developed almost in isolation from their fanbase. Which is why it%26rsquo;s refreshing when we see mighty teams such as Liverpool-based Bizarre Creations toil away so freely with their most loyal fans on their website, bizarreonline.net. It%26rsquo;s the sign of a truly passionate games development team who fervently believe in what they%26rsquo;re creating, and not only do they solicit suggestions from their fans; they tend to go out of their way to actively act upon them.
Number one on their fan%26rsquo;s agenda: a more varied vehicular line-up. Don%26rsquo;t get us wrong, we loved being able to get behind the wheel of the supercars from straight out of the box in Project Gotham Racing 3, but when there%26rsquo;s always biscuits in the tin, where%26rsquo;s the fun in biscuits? Around halfway through the grueling single-player system, all those red shiny cars seemed to merge into one, and it was only through sheer force of will that we managed to fill up our virtual garage.
