This is how Need for Spirit Drink & Drive Simulator begins:
Yeah, Instamarketing and Game think they’re being cute. They are not being cute. They are Deceptive. This is how it probably went down:
Dev 1: We have a really, really bad driving game with horrible controls and levels that make absolutely no sense. What do we do?
Dev 2: Call it Need for Spirit Drink & Drive Simulator and pretend the horrendous controls are because you are drunk!
Dev 1: Brilliant! Let me get on that right now.
I guarantee that’s how the meeting went down because there is no drinking involved beyond the barrels(kegs) on your vehicle. Anyways, the game is a timed sprint between point A and point B in 10 minutes. You’ll need it because the game controls are so bad, you’ll slide into everything, even getting yourself stuck with no way out and requiring a restart. There may be more than one level, but I sure as hell was not going to find out. Here is a video to drive home how bad Need for Spirit actually is:
Seen it? Good. Now imagine that for 10 minutes. That is Need for Spirit in a nutshell. Just plain horrible. The developers claim:
Need for Spirit” delivers a humorous take on a serious subject, making it clear that the game does not endorse or encourage drunk driving in real life. Enjoy the absurdity while staying safe.
Need for Spirit doesn’t deliver a take on any subject. You aren’t drinking and driving. There is no increasingly blurry vision. There’s nothing to indicate in game that this has anything to do with alcohol. I think the developers were creating one game, and realizing it couldn’t sell, adopted a conceit to make it “unique.” This is a scam, pure and simple. You buy a game expecting to drink and drive, but realize its just a horrible sprint game. As least it is playable, unlike The Love, a scam game I played yesterday.
Overall: Need for Spirit was original one horrible game, then they made it about drinking to sell it.
