  1. A great game. It's simple gameplay will take you back to the old school days of pure gaming goodness.
  2. A highly playable and very fast arcade racer.
  3. Perhaps the most impressive visual aspect to Downforce is the games split-screen multiplayer mode which stays extremely quick, with no loss in quality, framerate or objects on-screen.
  4. They’ve ditched realistic racing for a straight-forward adrenaline rush where amazing vehicular explosions are your reward spectacularly bad driving.
  5. A wonderful ode to the old school racing games of yesteryear and fans of the racing genre will be quite pleased and entertained by its intensity.
  6. As for the actual game playing, this game keeps a F1 games physics, and gives you a sometimes unforgiving difficulty.

There is some good crash simulations though and some fast-paced fun. Full Review »
