TTAC Needs Car Video Game Reviews

True dat. We’re looking for one of our Best and Brightest to write 800-word automotive videogame reviews for TTAC. We’ll pay $100 per published piece plus free videogames (disclaimed at the bottom of the review, of course). Send your magnum opus (within the body of an email) to robert.farago@thetruthaboutcars.com with SAMPLE REVIEW in the subject bar. Rate the game from one to five stars and include a one sentence summation. Again, the review must be exactly 800 words (not including title, star ratings and summation sentence). Remember: ‘tude counts. Oh, and Midnight Club: Los Angeles is out today. Here’s a review style you shouldn’t copy, from Streetfire: “I have to say that from what I’ve seen so far in the last 11 hours it is pretty impressive. It came as no surprise that the party was held in the heart of Hollywood at the Virgin Megastore and featured a performance by the Eagles of Death Metal. I’m personally a big fan of the fact that the game has a 97 song track list with music of all types, and a large number from the SoCal area. Being from Los Angeles, it’s pretty cool to be playing a badass car game that let’s me drive through the streets of Hollywood doing all of the things I WISH I could get away.” With. Although that’s one way to avoid ending a sentence with a preposition…

    Dear RF: I've always fancied myself a wordsmith, and my ticker's all atwitter at the thought of writing under the TTAC masthead instead of sniping from the curmudgeon gallery, a la Statler and Waldorf from "The Muppet Show." Here's my review: Game Title: Toyota Yaris Platform: Xbox 360 Released: October 2007 Rating: 0 out of 5 Summary: What a piece of $#!+. Review text: This game sucks. Bad. (Note to editor: 'copy' the previous line and 'paste' it 199 times in a row. This will save me some time, and will perfectly fill the 800 word limit. Thanks!) Wow, that was easy. Wait, you mean I don't get my hundred dollars?

    Any other Macintosh users on TTAC that play Redline? I'd love to meetup online for some races on the weekends. --chuck

    Howdy Robert, I sent you a sample review - I am wondering if you'd gotten it as I haven't heard back from you. Thanks!
