TrackMania, Need for Speed World, and HoopWorld

Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! Kidzworld has all the latest games to keep watch for. This week, we preview TrackMania, Need for Speed World, and HoopWorld!

TrackMania

Already a hit on the PC, the do-it-yourself racing game TrackMania is finally coming to the Wii this week. TrackMania lets you create the arcade racing action by creating and customizing several totally different kinds of car, and creating your own tracks with a ridiculously in-depth track builder. Roads can loop or twist or ramp up into monster jumps, and you've gotta keep your car on it as best you can. In fact, the road can be so hard to keep on that this game has "platformer" levels, in which you just have to stay on-course to win (easier said than done on these devilish course designs). Make what you race!


Need for Speed World

The Need for Speed series is going massively multiplayer on your PC this week! The series' traditional street racing/police chase gameplay is getting knocked up a notch with RPG-style stats and progression and new power-ups. You race in an open world environment made up of the worlds from Need for Speed Most Wanted and Carbon smashed together into one giant world. Challenge your friends and family online, or whoever else is playing at any time. You can get a free download to start off your online racing career at the Need for Speed website.

HoopWorld

If you thought basketball needed more Kung Fu moves (who hasn't?) then HoopWorld may be the Wiiware title for you. For 1000 Wii Points ($10) you and a friend can really "basketbrawl" on outdoor courts with seven different funky teams. I mean, pirates versus robots in basketball? Awesome. It has to be better than that one time they made a Kung Fu game with a little bit of basketball strewn in. Yes, Shaq Fu is a real game!

Can't wait for the game, anyone else think it may be better than CoD and Battlefield? I was gonna give a PC Gamer link on the new "Operator System," it also gives links to the gameplay trailer and a really cool hands on, but then KW bot informed me that i can't (which is completely ridiculous and incredibly annoying).  If you wanna check it out go to the PC Gamer site, I think its still on their homepage.

I think they should be able to because everybody has there own style for example i like to play action games like Tanki & Call Of Duty and Call Of Duty Ghost they are not that into action but you know what i mean. This kid in my class in 3rd grade said games and and xbox are for only boys. i play tanki, sims 3,and expantion packs with the sims 3, Call Of Duty(Ghost), Minecraft and all sorts of diffeent games so post now on you opinion!
