Pocketbike Racer

Now here's an interesting idea. Burger King has announced that it has partnered with Blitz Games to offer three Xbox 360/Xbox compatible games this holiday season. Beginning November 19th and running through December 24th, three separate titles will be available for $3.99 each with the purchase of a BK Value Meal.

What's more, these titles don't appear to be the crappy games you can usually expect from promotions such as these. Two titles will offer online play via Xbox Live, and the one that doesn't allows the King to serve up meals Sam Fisher style. And can you really put a price on that? They even look good too; click each game's title below to see screenshots of it in action.

From the fact sheet, here's a description of each title:

“Pocketbike Racer” (Racing) ­­ –– Welcome to the wild world of Pocketbike racing where players race the King and his miniature motorbike crew through five fun, yet challenging speedways. Each track varies in level of difficulty and players navigate long straights, tight bends and sharp turns at high speeds while attempting to earn enhancements and tools that they can use to gain an advantage over opponents. Featuring HAVE IT YOUR WAY® customization options, players select a bike and a driver and then hit the track of their choice ­-- a BURGER KING® restaurant parking lot, a construction site, a backyard, the King’s garden or the fabled Fantasy Ranch set. In addition to individual play, four players can race against each other in classic split-screen set-up or eight players can battle it out online using XBOX Live.

“Big Bumpin’” (Action) –– Big Bumpin’ looks like a traditional carnival bumper car ride and features familiar BURGER KING® icons, including the Subservient Chicken and Brooke Burke. But, there’s a catch – Big Bumpin’ arenas come with some big hazards, like surprise saws, bottomless pits and “power up” items that let gamers dole out thundering bumps. With several different types of game play, gamers have a chance to hone their bumper car skills in a variety of challenging scenarios. The game features theme parks, including the “Ice Box,” “Broiler,” “King’s Court,” “The Deep” and “Monsoon of Doom,” and three modes of play for each – intense four-player and XBOX Live-supported. Easy to learn. Fun to play. Difficult to avoid a major crash.

“Sneak King” (Adventure) –– Only the King can turn an everyday act into an art form and now players can step into the King’s royal shoes and use cunning stealth to sneak up behind unsuspecting people and bestow them with a delicious meal. The goal of Sneak King is to surprise hungry citizens with BURGER KING® sandwiches and other menu items throughout the day before they pass out from hunger. Whether in a logging yard, construction site, suburban neighborhood or downtown urban scene -- each rich with detail and hidden pathways -- players can hide out and earn points based on how elaborate the delivery is executed.

We hope to have reviews of each title around November 19th.
