The player, that is, you, plays the role of a new member of the Company, a gang whose history in the Battle Wheels universe is legendary. (Itís interesting how the Atari Lynxí classic comes back in the form of posters and asides in Redline Ė but after all, Beyond Games did make it, so itís little wonder) The gang went through some hard times, and is experiencing difficulties with rival gangs. Fresh blood is needed, which is where you come in Ė and youíre their best hope.
The game isnít hard to pick up at all. The controls arenít complex, and whatís relatively neat is that the game introduces diving, which you can only perform when outside the car. Basically, itís like strafing, but for a longer distance (the screen doesnít rotate, though). I hope weíll see more and more of this, because thatís something that should be taken for granted Ė after all, there isnít only strafing in the world. There arenít two pages of buttons, either Ė movement, fire, aiming and thatís about all. Surprising is the fact that crouch is missing, though. Also, while the normal controls are pretty responsive, I believe strafing needs a slight improvement in sensitivity, as the way it is right now itís pretty useless because itís so slow.
