    Tried the demo, i am disappointed. 1st persom is always preferred over 3rd person perspect any time. Not worth what 10 bucks. 42 meg program, wow, no wonder its made by pixeljunk !! is this a joke or a rip off. So glad i tried the demo first. Most games fails miserably. Just my opinion...thank you

    This game is a lot of fun and feels very different to more traditional racing games. The difficulty is a bit high in single player and requires very sharp reflexes to do well, but play it for a while and you'll understand what it's all about. The game supports up to 7 players in multiplayer, which is where the game really comes alive.

Fireball racer with 3 or 4 other players is an experience not to be missed - it's just a shame that with the simple controls there is no option to have two players on one pad like Micro Machines for the Megadrive. PS3 controllers are expensive! A nice little game that fans of high speed twitch action should enjoy. Due to the low price point and uniqueness of the gameplay I highly recommend it. Expand

    An intrinsically bland concept keeps this game from becoming a truly enjoyable hit, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's terrible. We had a few good times with PixelJunk Racers (especially the confusion of trying to figure out seven different people playing seven different colors), but you may be better off passing on this one.

    Multiplayer is certainly better than single-player (the more people, the better), but it suffers from the same pileups and limited variety. Considering how impractical it is to set up a full multiplayer game offline, it's ridiculous that the game's only online feature is comparing scores and leaderboards.
  3. Before too long though, it's a bit too easy to find yourself growing tired of the sheer volume of other cars to bash into and the constant eyeball-gymnastics required to track your lanes. There's a surprising amount of skill involved with doing well in many of these events, so the faint-hearted will grow weary too soon.
