Synetic Gmb H - Games


  • Have a N.I.C.E. day (1997), an arcade racer focusing on stunts such as long jumps and loopingswas Synetic's first release. The game was unusual for a racing game in that it offered only three basic car models that could be tuned and modified by the player to suit a wide variety of different driving styles. According to statements made by Synetic employees on their website's forum, the term "N.I.C.E.", which also appeared in Synetic's follow-up title, was initially an abbreviation for some concept in the game, but apparently none of the team members remembers what it stood for.
  • N.I.C.E. 2 (1998), released as Breakneck on the international market, featured three distinct classes of cars (classics, contemporary high-performance cars and micro-size cars like the Fiat 500), along with some special classes like Formula One cars and karts. The game's complicated career mode which had to be played to unlock cars and tracks, as well as the shootout mode in which players could arm their cars with machine guns and rocket launchers, were met with rather mixed reactions by players. An add-on, N.I.C.E. 2 Tune-Up, attempts to address these problems by providing a simple, streamlined interface for selecting races and by removing the shootout mode. Due to Synetic's limited funding at the time the game was developed, and due to the fact that many car manufacturers refused to be associated with a shooting game, the cars in the game were not licensed by car manufacturers. Although instantly recognizable as their real-world counterparts, the 3D car models were changed slightly, and cars were given imaginary names.
  • Mercedes-Benz Truck Racing (2000) was Synetic's first licensed game, featuring Mercedes-Benz racing trucks that could be driven on a variety of real-world race tracks.
  • Mercedes-Benz World Racing, Using their contacts with Mercedes, Synetic was able to release this title in 2003. The game, roughly similar to Electronic Arts's Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed, featured a broad selection of Mercedes cars ranging from classic Silberpfeil racing cars to contemporary high-performance cars. It was Synetic's first game that did away with fixed racing tracks, instead offering large, open environments with multiple streets that could be explored by the player. The game also offered several new racing modes, like cross-country checkpoint races.
  • World Racing 2 (Oct 2005) Released for PC and Xbox. Features a variety of licensed car models, ranging from classic sports cars to prototypes and SUVs. The game also features the open environments and broad selection of racing modes found in its predecessor. New features included a detailed damagemodel, traffic and the use of headlights and turnsignals. The player could customize vehicles by choosing various paintjobs, vinyls and rims.
  • Alarm for Cobra 11 - Nitro (Nov 2006) based on the German TV series of the same name. Features 27 missions and 3 sceneries (Autobahn, City, Countryside) and uses an enhanced version of the graphics engine used in the World Racing series.
  • Alarm for Cobra 11 - Crash Time (Nov 2007) Features up to 50 non-linear missions in different sceneries and uses an enhanced version of the same graphics engine used in the World Racing series.
  • Alarm for Cobra 11 - Burning Wheels (Dec 2008) Another title following AFC11 line. The game uses an even more enhanced version of World Racing graphics engine. Additional info and screenshots may be found on Synetic official site and forum.

Famous quotes containing the word games:

    At the age of twelve I was finding the world too small: it appeared to me like a dull, trim back garden, in which only trivial games could be played.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    Criticism occupies the lowest place in the literary hierarchy: as regards form, almost always; and as regards moral value, incontestably. It comes after rhyming games and acrostics, which at least require a certain inventiveness.
    Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)

    The rules of drinking games are taken more serious than the rules of war.
    Chinese proverb.
