There's nothing unusual about vehicles in first-person shooters – Rage has its Jetter and Cuprino, Battlefield 3 has two entire classes of wheeled vehicles – but there's usually still a person involved. But what about when your vehicle is your shooter? Then you have the PS3 game Wheels of Destruction World Tour, which is essentially Death Race 2 without the felons and bad acting.

There are three classes in the arcade-style game: Scout, Heavy and Assassin. Your job is to pilot one of them in "death matches, free-for-alls, and capture-the-flag frenzies." The goal seems simple: "battle to crush opponents, slaying everything in your path of relentless devastation, both online and off."

And don't forget high scores. There are a couple of gameplay and instructional vids after the jump.

      So it's basically like Twisted Metal or Vigilante 8 with a futuristic twist.

      The article writer must be either under 20 or over 60 to think this is something new. Twisted Metal, Vigilante 8...or hell even Carmageddon could qualify. Not to mention numerous more recent examples such as Full auto..

        Where does it say anything about anyone thinking thinking this is new?

        Vigilante 8, thank you. I've been trying to remember the name of that game for the longest time. Man did I love that game. Each vehicle had it's own special weapon. I remember the garbage truck would pick up it's opponent and "compact" them. Half of the fun in that game was not only battling the other vehicles but destroying the scenario you were in. Knocking down the screen at the drive in, blowing up the train coming through the tunnel, etc.

      So twisted metal pretty much, it looks like they're using Warthogs with more weapons.

      *Chuckle* I'm glad I'm not the only person who saw "Twisted Metal" when I saw this. I'd always thought something combined Twisted Metal and multi-player capture the flag (like in the original Quake online game) would be awesome, and it only took.... 15 years to do it.

        Actually the new Twisted Metal for PS3 has online multiplayer and there is a mode setup similar to CTF.

      I like Full Auto better than arena-type driver/shooters. That was a fun game to run through.
