I don't know if anyone remembers it but Kinetica was SCE Santa Monica Studios' first video game, released a year into the PS2's lifecycle.
Admittedly, I never played the full game. Only the demo. I don't know how many copies it sold (doesn't look it was a success) but it got generally favorable reviews and averaged a 77/100 on Metacritic.
Anyways, I got to thinking how badass the game would be if the God of War development studio were to work on a sequel/reboot. I think they're much more experienced and it wouldn't hurt Sony to market another racing title, whether it be for the PS3, Vita or PS4. What do you think?

God of War is great and all but would you purchase a Kinetica sequel/reboot?
Something like that for the Vita would be fantastic.
I love those style of games and the Vita needs more original titles. They shouldn't be afraid to take a risk
So it doesn't even have to be a sequel/reboot to Kinetica but they wouldn't be new to the racing genre if they considered making a racing game.

Yeah I completely agree with you Blacksite. I'm in the same boat as you on this one. I never played the full game of Kinetica but I must have played the demo seriously 100 times. Too young and too broke to buy it. I personally want Santa Monica to step away from GOW for a little while. Not saying completely do away with it but I think the current era of Kratos honestly is over and stale in my eyes. I think it would be nice for them to step away and work on something fresh and outside the hack and slash genre. Yes Kinetica would be a great game to do that with.

Kinetica is one of my favorite PS2 games. In fact, I might play it right now.
It got old after awhile, as most racers do, but it always kept me coming back after a long time of not playing it. It's just a really cool, unique, stylish racer that still isn't like any other racers I've played. The design was also innovative in that the people are the cars and the tracks changed orientations several times in the middle of a race. It's just a really fun pick-up-and-play sort of game. It's great on console, but for that reason, it would also be perfect for Vita.
I would definitely purchase a Kinetica sequel or reboot. I'd be more interested in a sequel since some elements had room for improvement. And an improved Kinetica would be amazing.
