"The Straight Truth; From a Game Veteran"

March 25, 2014  |  By 1fastZL1

 |  Version: Extreme Velocity 3D The Drag Strip 2.0

Pros

N/A...
The only pro I can think of is that there is a functioning timing system. However, the rollout on the starting line is way off. You can't even bottom bulb a Top Fuel Dragster.... Does something sounds wrong there?

Cons

-The cars all sounds the same.
-The cars are fairly ugly and unrealistic.
-Lack of ability to customize cars.
-The game laggs a TON
-Lack of support from game moderators.
-You can't chat with other races while racing. The owner took it away and won't bring it back.
-There are only a few people online at a current time. Which makes it hard to race.
-You must pay $200 for a car to be added to the game. The game owner discards the opinions of the game players.
-If you say something the game owner doesn't like, you will be BANNED. He takes pride in that.
-Lack of updates.
-Slow response time from Moderators.
...... I could go all day.

Summary

I've been with the game for 6 years... I'll tell you what. The game used to be the best thing around. It was a ton of fun. About a year ago, things started to change. To be honest, the game owner got money hungry and figured out if he started making new cars, people would buy them. But quality went way down, and now he's hurting because nobody plays anymore. He pushed all the steady players away. The owner, Kris Bloom, is a CORRUPT MAN. He'll ban a player a day after they buy a membership, and unbann them if they buy a car, or some game points from him. It's very sad to watch this game go down the drain, but it's happening fast.

They act like the Facebook page is on lock down. A post must be approved by an admin, and it normally takes 3 days for them to approve it. If you make ONE comment that is against anything KRIS BLOOM believes in, he will block you. OH, and it takes a good week to get him to reply to an email.

Brent Senile, Kris's best buddy treats everyone like peasants as well. They banned all of the good moderators and their primary goal is to suck money out of everyone they can. They all lack knowledge of drag racing. Kris Bloom told us that a Delay Box is a cheating device, and is only for people who can't drive.

I'm just warning you. That's all I'm trying to do here. Hopefully one day the game will be in the hands of someone else.


***It may sound like I'm some old man complain because I got banned. BUT, I'm not banned. 've just lost many friends on there because they have been banned.***

Updated on Mar 25, 2014

I just wanted to add that all of this I wrote above is all just my opinions. There are some people that may argue with me, but that's just how I see it. This is just what I've experienced over the past 6 years and figured it was time to share.

"Don't listen to other reviews"

March 19, 2014  |  By mustangfan_87

 |  Version: Extreme Velocity 3D The Drag Strip 2.0

Pros

lots of cars
cars added often
lots of racing
good community
custom paint
laid back staff

Cons

some bugs
most users based in US time zones
TOO ADDICTING

Summary

I was hesitant based on other reviews until I realized most reviews were the same person just making new names. How childish. They must be about 12 and only pretending to be adults online. Maybe they had some bad mods in the past but those mods are long gone and only a few mods remand and they're all courteous and easy to work with. Sounds like these little kids broke some rules and need to move on and grow up.

Best advice for new players is to be patient and spend time at the race track earning points. Very few people will give you points if you don't try so just don't waste your time asking. Google evratios to find good setups for the cars. People here whined about it being so wrong but mod only said that making my own ratios would be better because i'll learn and did not say it was against the rules to use the site. Sounds like young kids being banned and telling lies to me. I'm more inclined to listen to the people in charge not some young kids who got banned for something else and have no lives.

OH YA DON'T LISTEN TO THESE KIDS. GOOD GAME. GOOD FUN. MUST PLAY!

"Really A Drag Racing Game???"

May 23, 2013  |  By manonamission1

 |  Version: Extreme Velocity 3D The Drag Strip 2.0

Pros

Selection of cars
Good community of players

Cons

Not really free, 2 car garage is useless

Have to pay for new cars, can't buy with points

Bugs and glitches that are hardly ever fixed

Horrible tech support, game administrator will not answer emails

Game moderators are arrogant and have a horrible attitude with the players

Summary

You can call this a drag racing game if you like. It's a game of pin the tail on the donkey. As a long time member this used to be a really good game before the owner fired and banned all of his good staff members. Not much good to say about the game anymore. Owner is too busy with other things in his life and has let a good game go 10 feet under. Very shocking to see someone conduct a game and business in this manner. Wake up Mr. Bloom before your money cow runs dry of her milk. First of all you hire the worst staff of moderators that have smart azz attitudes with the players and think they know it all. You get players that are winning and then have your staff hit ban button and give a bogus reason for a ban. Oh he's cheating, I think John Force is running from his account. Mr. mod please please hit the ban button, dispose of him and take his money. The box pops up you have been BANNED from the game. No Mr. Bloom you don't have to use caps on banned and scream at us. All the long time members know what kind of bogus operation you run and try to scam people out of money. You're so dirty and low you let your best loved moderator run a ratio site that is 100% against the rules but you want to ban the players. It's http://www.evratios.********/ the best ratio sharing site on the planet for those of you who don't know about it. TRSblader a moderator on the game happens to just run that site and use it as ban trap. Mr. Bloom I'm so shocked you let your staff be outlaws and run your game for you that way. Are you that hungry for money? I thought you were one of those whiz kids that was too smart for their own good and used to work with Microsoft. Really it doesn't show the way you conduct your game and business. You need to respond to emails to your paying member and fix the bugs on the game before you sell new cars for money. Are you that broke you have to sell the new cars before you can fix the game? So long ev and to a good community of players not the owner and staff.

"Review From a long time member"

May 03, 2013  |  By thehonestman936

 |  Version: Extreme Velocity 3D The Drag Strip 2.0

Pros

Well the game has always had a nice selection of cars.

Cons

Owner is a money hungry power tripping tyrant
Staff is horrible with the exception of a few.
Spend lots of real $ to play the game and nothing is fixed
Owner is To busy to email back to his loyal paying customers
New cars are added and people buy with real $ yet there are no classes to race them in.
All the old time members have left as they are tired of the crap

Summary

Wow where to start on this one. Well I have been around the game for a long time and to see what it has evolved to is very sad. With the exception of a few the staff is extremely horrible and useless. All the good staff members have left. Who came blame them when working( for free) for a person who is rude and does not blink a eye to them as he feels he is better than them. Mr Bloom is a extremely money hungry person with absolutely no customer service skills. People have spent thousands of dollars of this game and Mr Bloom refuses to fix any problems with the game to keep them around,The attitude is other customers will come along and spend instead. The game has very strict rules as the Owner Claims to be a church going man. Maybe the owner needs to remember Matthew 7:12 Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets. All in all I wish Mr Bloom the best but I as well as many others have long left the game and refuse to loose money to a person who does not appreciate his customers nor his staff. Not trying to tear apart the game but just sad it has gone down the drain with no hope of recovery.

Updated on May 8, 2014

A Banned member? LMAO are you kidding me. I will gladly log on and post a screen shot of me on the game with the date and time. Stop trying to cover your rear end and take care of business Kris. Treat your customers and MODS with respect. They are the only reason you still have enough money in to keep the servers going.

"Potential to be a good game with fixes and new staff"

April 20, 2013  |  By pcgamer2013

 |  Version: Extreme Velocity 3D The Drag Strip 2.0

Pros

About the only true realistic drag racing PC game with bracket racing and heads up racing.

Overall a good community of players.

Cons

Games tends to lag bad at times (Game relies on very good strong internet connection not dial up connection).

Game bugs and glitches that haven't been fixed in ages.

Game isn't really free unless you want a 2 car garage.

New cars can't be bought with points only with cash.

Game owner want respond to emails unless you address the subject with $$$ offering to buy the game or pay him $200 for the choice of car you want on the game.

Nearly every car has square wheels.

Some of the staff members are totally OBNOXIOUS (No I want include you niteprowler, I think you're one of the few that do their job in an appropriate manner and even care) TRSblader you totally suck and make your own rules not what's posted with in the game rules.

Some of the staff likes to ban who ever they please.

Get banned easily from the EV group Facebook page and then usually from the game rather it's legit or not.

Owner doesn't treat his staff members fairly exception of TRSblader who is his little jockey.

Summary

Game is fun for a little while but gets old very fast with all the bugs that don't get fixed and having to put with some of the staffs drama. Don't waste money on a membership for this game because when they ban you it's gone. Game could be great with a owner that cares, supports his paying members, and a big change of heart in staff members. Makes a lot of sense sell you new cars for $$$ on the game before the game bugs gets fixed. Well not for the owner just more $$$ in his pocket. No phone # either to contact KABloom Interactive, that # has been disconnected for a while now. So long EV waste of $$$, time, and I am done along with other good paying members. See you again EV in time when the game is ran legit with a new owner and a change of heart in the staff members.

"good if you dont expect too much."

April 17, 2013  |  By evracerquick

 |  Version: Extreme Velocity 3D The Drag Strip 2.0

Pros

great cars, team racing and tuning

Cons

rude moderator (same as everyone else has mentioned)
new cars instead of fixing existing problems
do not honor gaurantees

Summary

there is a note before putting in a ticket that says two free months membership if the ticket is not answered within 24 hours. I was contacted by none other than nightprowler who explained he didnt get the ticket until hours before even though the ticket was time stamped atleast 30 hours earlier. I don't care when he got the ticket i know when i entered it and the time stamp proves it. gaurantee was not honored i was told to pack sand and contact kris the owner if i had a problem with it. aparently there is not a gaurantee on if he will get back with you I was ignored.

"Good except for a mod and few players"

March 28, 2013  |  By v8ftw

 |  Version: Extreme Velocity 3D The Drag Strip 2.0

Pros

Bunch of cars to choose from and different types of racing. Game runs very well for me when there are people to race. I like being able to choose what parts I put on to race in different classes and indexes.

Cons

The other posts are correct niteprowler is an issue and is keeping the game from moving forward. He is hellbent on banning everyone and not helping them and is driving all the customers away. If you ask around just about everyone will say this. Until he is gone this game will never be as good as it can be and is only a 2 star game but I gave it 2.5 to be nice.

Other issue is actually getting people to race. There's some people like nitro_joe that just sit in the selling chatroom and harass new players, talk down to new players and act like they're better than everyone, and whine about anything and everything. They just sell cars all day and won't even race for 100 points because they don't have any guts and can't race. I don't know why some of them are on a racing game if they won't actually race and they're just ruining the game. They need to get a life and go outside every once in a while.

Would give 4.5 stars instantly if these problems were addressed.

Summary

Game could be a lot better but niteprowler holds it back by being such a power abusing mod. There's also players too scared to race on a racing game so they just talk down to other players and sell cars all day long. Get a life and go outside every once in a while.

If you want evidence of the tricks he plays to ban people, here is a screen shot just replace the (dot) with a period mark.

"Best racing game but still needs work"

March 13, 2013  |  By evracer

 |  Version: Extreme Velocity 3D The Drag Strip 2.0

Pros

By far the best racing game for pc and it's simple and easy to get started. Lots of cars to choose from and difference types of racing. The live racing is really fun. If you google evratios you can find a website to give you free ratios for the cars. They aren't perfect but they're pretty good and really easy to modify to make better. Game play is really good and whoever fish is makes some good paints for the cars.

Cons

Avoid niteprowler. If you have an issue all he'll tell you is that it's a problem with your internet provider and to go call them and make them fix it. He gets pissy and starts ignoring you if you keep asking questions. He also only talks in chat to yell at someone or offer 1 point because he thinks he's funny. Ask him a question in public and he'll run away without saying a word and wait for you to leave. If you need help just avoid niteprowler and IM another mod. Theres a couple platinum members that sit in chat and rip new players off all day on car prices too so stay away from chat too. Gameplay itself is really good.

Summary

Still the best racing game for pc but the niteprowler guy needs to go because he just gives you a run around and has a pissy attitude all the time. He just wants to find the smallest thing to ban people for and be power hungry. Google evratios and you'll be much happier when playing the game.

"Extreme Velocity 3D"

December 30, 2012  |  By kckiler98

 |  Version: Extreme Velocity 3D The Drag Strip 2.0

Pros

New cars
Coupons
Only one with everything pretty much correct
Unlimited garage for plat members

Cons

Same car audio
Cant stand up for ourself
Not much racing
Pay for paints
Most cars are for real money
Have to pay to have more than 2 cars
buggy
Cant stear

Summary

Overall, EV has been a ehh, jumping experience for me. I have talked to the owner and he does get back to me quick, just some of the mods arent really fair..... not naming anyone, just some. Others get back quick and even do me favors. The game could be improved but whenever someone has an idea, most likely it wont be used or it will be, just in the late future. The game crashes alot which should be fixed instead of adding more cars. Over all, it is better than nitto 1320, and about the same as haulin azz with a few different features

On the other hand, EV is a fun game to play when looking for something to do. Firendly people, just dont break rules and your fine.
