Racing Game Reviewsfhouse writes "Another vehicle combat game with shitty graphics and boring tracks, but with better multiplayer.

Ok well everyone compares this game to Split/Second. I'll tell you it's fun with more variety and tactics in gameplay but it's shit compared to SS in terms of production value.


Graphics

Well the game lives up to it's title because the graphics are blurry as hell.
The game tries to aim for this neon glow art style which looks ok in the menus but fails in the game.
The effects are overused especially the bloom effect.
There are low-res textures used everywhere and the cars don't look very special either.
I understand that displaying up to 20 vehicles on track takes a lot of processing power but still, this is not an excuse for the awful track design.


Sound, music

Boring! The music is mostly drum & bass, which creates an annoying, chaotic mass of NOISE along with the shitty engine and powerup sounds.
Music: OFF


Gameplay

You take your licensed awfully understeering vehicles and pick up powerups placed around on tracks to shoot the crap out of other racers.
These powerups are really boring and standard: Mine, Shield, Shunt (homing missile), Shock, Nitro, Barge (shockwave), Repair. But at least you can play tactically and fire some of them forwards and backwards as well. Later on you'll be able to mod some of your powerups and add some extra gameplay mods to the races.
The single player campaign has only 3-4 types of races, but the multiplayer part can become quite addictive, as there is a level up system used.

Get prepared for the PC port issues: You cannot customize your keyboard mapping, you'll have to choose from 2 layouts. Brilliant, so you might want to use your trusty gamepad instead. Fuck these lazy developers and their console ports.

By the way, I hate when I can't see my X360 controller's mappings in the menus, even when it's connected you still see the keyboard icons displayed. (Note: This issue is also present in SS.)


Summary

Audiovisual crap that can be fun with friends. (If you have any)

I can't tell from the review if the music is just bad or you just don't like drum & bass, but in any case, if you don't like drum & bass, you're a fucking pussy

Hello all, to answer the questions:
I like d'n'b, it's a very good music to listen and dance to, I just found it's annoying together with all the sounds you hear in this game. I hope it's clear now.

And they are licensed tracks, for example:

I would like to reconsider my review. This game is so awesome.
I can't put it down, multiplayer is so addictive.

Now I kinda like the graphics as well. There are some cool technical shit programmed in it. the motion blur has some cool noise effect on it so it's not jut a blurry crap.

The photo mode is also awesome.

Things start to get a lot more specific from there, which explains why Complex dubbed the list the "weirdest" places celebrities have had sex instead of just plain ol' places. Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton did it coach factory [www.coachoutletsonlinestore-usa.us] "in a truck deep in the woods." Watch out for tetanus, you two.
While there are countless reasons we think fall in New York nike air max 2015 [www.nikeairmaxfreedom.com] City is the best, we've narrowed it down to the seven that really make a difference. Nobody does this season quite like we do nike air max 90 [www.nikeairmaxfreedom.com] here's why.
Though the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star tweeted to fans that his favorite dance was the jive, he'll never be able air max shoes [www.nikeairmaxfreedom.com] to shake off the crowd-pleaser that is the Carlton. Before we had Elaine Benes and her T-Rex flailing, we had Master Carlton's arms swinging nike air max griffey [www.nikeairmaxfreedom.com] merrily to the beat of Tom Jones' "It's Not Unusual." It was louis vuitton outlet online [www.officiallouisvuittononlinestore.cc] just a matter of time before the DWTS dancing gods got their fix.
With the show's fourth season upon us, we got a little curious about just what the CIA expects of is agents. Sure, Claire Danes' Carrie can tear down a terrorist cell, nike air max 1 [www.nikeairmaxfreedom.com] get game-changing intel, and act on hunches nobody else has, but is she a good employee? Let's investigate, shall we?
Phillippe and Witherspoon louis vuitton outlet stores [www.officiallouisvuittononlinestore.cc] first met at the actress' 21st birthday party, way back in 1997. The following year, they teamed up for Cruel Intentions, which, according to air max [www.nikeairmaxfreedom.com] Phillippe, his kids can barely fathom. "[Reese] was just in New York doing press for Gone Girl and Wild and we got to meet air max 90 infrared [www.nikeairmaxfreedom.com] up as a family and took a walk through Central Park with the kids, and it was funny," Ryan said of his family time. air max ltd [www.nikeairmaxfreedom.com] "We were reminiscing then, because we shot a lot of Cruel Intentions [around the park], so there we were, with Ava and Deacon, talking, nike air max 95 [www.nikeairmaxfreedom.com] and they were tripping out on the fact that we [had been] there, shooting a movie, before they were even a thought in our coach outlet online store [www.coachoutletsonlinestore-usa.us] minds."
