  • Summary: WHEN SPEED IS NOT ENOUGH, THE CITY IS YOUR WEAPON

    Inspired by the critically acclaimed video game from Disney Interactive Studios, and developed in conjunction with Black Rock Studios — Split/Second delivers action arcade racing on an epic scale.

    Set in a TV city that is rigged to
    blow, you’ll trigger Power Plays to wreck opponents, open short cuts, and win the race.

    Features
    • Includes three locations and nine tracks from the console game: Airport, Downtown, Port
    • Choose from three gameplay modes: Season Mode, Quick Play, or Multiplayer
    • Race in 15 incredibly specialized cars, each with different attributes.
    • Blast your friends in four person multiplayer — connect Online, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth

    To win, you’ll need both speed and strategy because everything can change in a Split/Second!

    Stay connected and check for updates coming soon. Split/Second will be periodically updated with new locations, vehicles and even more special features.

    There are plenty of other serious racers available on the App Store, but Split/Second will feed your inner tweenager's destructive lust with its explosive action like no other racer.

    Split/Second isn't a must have but may appeal to those looking for a different and far more arcade-y racing experience.

    Wholly playable online multiplayer over Wi-Fi. Excellent track design with lots of stuff that goes boom. An all-new location exclusive to the iPhone version. And it's pretty smooth, too, considering how fast it is. (I played it on a 3GS, by the way.) But it just never gels.

    Split/Second is certainly a nice change from the more pure sim style racers out there, but it's defining feature lacks legs for long-term enjoyment.

    A poorly tuned, unpolished wreck of a racer, Split/Second ruins a great idea with substandard execution.

    More frustrating than anything, Split/Second will leave you wishing for the game it could have been.

    Forget Split/Second for the iPhone. It's not worth the time or effort, especially at $6.99. Save up for the big boy version instead. You'll feel better.
