Right from the start, I know what you’re thinking: PlayStation Home is cool and all, and so are it's inner games. However, I want a full blown gaming experience in my free time. Well, what if I told you Sodium 2: Project Velocity does just that? I had my doubts, but as soon as I started playing it I felt like I was playing an expensive, high quality PSN game.
Project Velocity, a tank battle game, has some huge features, including: Single Player, Real Time Multiplayer, Leaderboards, Challenges, Customization, Leveling System, and even a Class System. These are all features you would only find in serious games, and I implore you to try them out first-hand.
With the Single Player mode, you can currently only do Quick Races. However, coming soon is the Arcade mode. Within the Quick Race mode are two playable maps and another is coming soon. In these maps, you will be traveling at very high speeds around the tracks. You will be using turbo boosts to avoid the sides of the track. Such impacts will lower your speed greatly, increasing your final time. This is never good news while in a race.
As for the Multiplayer, it's the life of Project Velocity. You can race up to two other players per game. After the fun and friendly competition, you will earn experience, allowing you to rank up, and there are unlockables that can be found at the garage on the mode selection. It really is amazing that such a great multiplayer experience is available to all PSN users for free.
Once again, do not be fooled by the fact that this is a free game for PlayStation Home. This is something I recommend everyone to try out for themselves. You will enjoy it, and if you get tired of a huge multiplayer games like Killzone 3, you can always come to PS Home to slow things down and relax. But don't get careless, these races aren't simple to win depending on your opponents!
