Take a look at what's in store for summertime.

JEEP THRILLS for the PS2 and Wii

Here's the synopsis, taken from the website:

"Off-road enthusiasts can get some Jeep Thrills in Destination Software's tribute to jeeps and Jeep culture. The game lets players race in 20 different jeeps, from the original WWII style know as the Willys MB, to more pavement-oriented jeeps like the Wrangler and the Compass, to sportier concept vehicles. Two players can race head-to-head on more than 30 different courses, including mountainous jungle rally races, and high-intensity, low-temperature sprints through the Arctic."

The Wrangler, a pavement-oriented Jeep? Who's doing their copywriting?

And Amazon's description is even funnier:

"JEEP the undisputed King of Off Road Adventure invites you to climb into the driver's seat and experience racing like never before! From the jungles of Central America to the frozen Alaskan tundra this is adventure racing like it ought to be! Jeep Thrills! And Everyone else? Gets left behind." Features:18 Customizable Jeep vehicles - including futuristic concept cars!35 intense tracks - with one main objective: Conquering the terrain and the elements and owning the planet!  Format: PS2 Genre"

I've never known any Jeep to leave other cars behind in racing. In fact, one of the funniest stickers I've ever seen said something like "Jeep - conquering the world 2 mile an hour at a time." Yup, that's about our speed out there in the woods.

It looks like a PS2 version will be released June 9th with a Wii version to follow. Definitely going to talk to the manufacturer to see if we can carry it here. Looks like a good time on a rainy day.
