Wow. That's all I can muster. After a measly 30 minutes or so, I was done. Thanks Dorito's, for aiding me in my Gamer Score Quest. I would have felt guilty paying for this game. Gamer score should not be that easy to earn. I though Avatar taught us that lesson. Anyways...
Dash of Destruction, a free XBLA game sponsored by Dorito's chips, released yesterday to millions of X-box gamers out there. And of those millions, millions were sadly disappointed. The game is weak. In one of (omg!) 2 modes, you are a Dorito's delivery truck driver. I don't know about you, but I thought it was Domino's that delivered... but since Dorito's is jumping on the band-wagon, I'll take some. However silly that alone is, you are also being chased by a T-Rex. Who eats you. If you get eaten, there are several chances to finish the level. Instead of the normal 3 lives that has been the standard since Mario, you get more then 6 on average. As you progress through the truck campaign, you will encounter 6 different locales that have you delivering the goods. Also, you get vehicle upgrades and eventually more t-rex's start chasing you. Just when you start to think it's about to get hard, it's over.
Then you get to play as the T-Rex, and eat the trucks. I found this the more entertaining part of the game. Again, as you progress through the same 6 locales, and getting more upgrades, and having to compete against another AI t-rex, you think, oh this is starting to get challenging. And then it's over.
And then there is multiplayer. It's almost as if they added it just because they didn't want to be the only game that sucked that didn't have multiplayer. The single MP achievement can be done by yourself with 2 controllers.
All in all, the cheezy graphics, the annoying music and sound effects, the horrible controls, and the 10-30 minute (including download) investment for 200 gamer score urges me to tell you to avoid it. However, since it is such an easy increase for your gamer score, might as well get it over with.
