Although they are the lowest of the low and the weakest of the weak in the Demon World, with 1000 of these little penguins at your disposal, you can do anything. These unlikely hero could fly, shoot canons do all sorts of destructions, pit them against the big demon bosses.

Drive the high power cars through tracks in all sorts of exotic places. In MotoGP 09/10, you get all cars, all riders and all sorts of goodies. To enhance replay value, downloadable content will be available for free, so be sure to check them out. Perform tricks, the riskier they are, the more points, but failing them also costs more.

With mystery, action and puzzles, Burst Error is immensely popular when it came out on the PC.
