Upcoming Wii games to use Havok Engine

Published On June 27, 2008 | By Jeremy White | News

2K games has announced that for some of their upcoming Wii titles they will be using the Havok Physics engine. The first game you can expect to see the engine on for 2K is Carnival Games: Mini-Golf. The managine director of Havok, David O’Meara, explains:

“Havok physics engines allow game developers to realistically depict motion and the effects the game character has on their environment. Havok technology communicates with physical elements in the game and loads them with intelligence, allowing them to react to the players’ actions in a realistic way. Of course, anyone who has used the Wii will recognise how important accurate movement is for the players’ enjoyment of the game. Fans of Carnival Games: Mini- Golf won’t be disappointed with the final results!”

This could be either really interesting, or not so much. What do you guys think about a leading physics engines being used by 2K for Wii games?
