Decent futuristic arcade racer
POD somewhat takes a page out of Rollcage’s book in terms of its futuristic designs and fast-paced power-up-fueled gameplay, though obviously without adopting that game’s defining physics (and without the same level of polish, too). Playing POD online is certainly a smooth experience, but the design of the game itself can lead to some frustration – particularly some of the very poor track layouts. Decent arcade fun in short bursts, but Racing Simulation 2 is the superior online racing experience.
Fantastic and funny racing game with some elements of Vigilante 8, Twisted Metal and Crash n Burn! Try it out!
