Initial D: Extreme Stage (PS3) First Impressions

Initial D: Extreme Stage for the PS3 is one weird racing game. While it looks like its shiny, pretty arcade counterpart, it also features one heck of a rubberband AI implementation which reminded me of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde.

Case in point, I was racing an AI opponent, and after having built a very healthy lead and not easing up, the AI opponent caught up towards the end of the race and overtook me :(. Another race saw an AI opponent building a healthy lead, before easing up for me to catch up with him (actually them, I was racing the girls driving the Sileighty) half way through the race!

Hmm.. more observations coming soon when I’ve got the time to play the game.
