A blazing head-to-head motorcycle-racing simulator, Maximum Torque uses the latest in web-based technology to create a rich 3-D racing environment with immersive sound. The game pits one of four user selected motorcycle racers, including a must-see-to-believe jet powered ride, against a computer controlled racer. The two engage in an all out chase through desert, palm, and city scenes that mirror film locations. Moveable cameras allow several views of the action in the lushly rendered racing environments and the 3-D sound pulls the player even deeper into the racing experience along with the energy-infused soundtrack created just for this game. Power ups ranging from gas refills to nitro boosts help the racer along the way while oncoming traffic, blocked roads, and the computer opponent all risk sending the racer over the handle bars in a fiery wipeout. Players will be able to select from multiple outfits to give their character a custom look.
