    This game is appealing for the first 3-4 hours, because of it's great visuals, nice music and all the action, but that is all there is to it. There are no tactics in this game, it's oversimplified and boring. The PC version is simply bad. The multiplayer is unbalanced, there are no car classes, so everyone uses the fastest cars. There are no Free DLC cars for the PC. Very high graphicsThis game is appealing for the first 3-4 hours, because of it's great visuals, nice music and all the action, but that is all there is to it.

  1. This shallow but rambunctious arcade racer may have only one trick up its sleeve, but it's a really good trick.
  2. Split/Second may not revolutionize the genre, but its screenfilling explosions and stunning looks are making it a title, that may not only be interesting for racing-fans, but also for everyone, who simply likes to blow stuff up - Hollywood-Style!
  3. Black Rock has proved the concept, shown what kind of polish they can muster, and given arcade racing fans a reason to get back in the game. The explosions and thrills will certainly last until the inevitable "Split/Second 2" throws a couple of different buildings at us.
