9This is a really fun racer. Yes it takes time to get used to the rather loose tilt controls, but once you master it you will enjoy this racer just as much as say Mario Kart. Yes, it's that good if you are willing to invest the time. You should start on easy to get the hang of things and soon you will enjoy driving around these retro courses, and drifting around sharp corners wiil become second nature and is tremendous fun and intuitive and one of the key elements in the game and bouncing into other cars is another fun aspect in the game, forcing you sooner or later to go to the pit, putting a little strategy into the game. This is a fantastic game and the bad reviews on the left must be made of people who sadly didn't have the patience and time to get into the swing of thing. They are going to miss out on a really great and fun racing game.… Expand
3D Pixel Racing is a racing retro game, a drive simulator with the face of a funny kart game.
The tilting of wiimote is perfect and reply to user instantaneously.
You can select between Cars of famous vintage games (Outrun, Sega Rally, Chase HQ, Pole Position, etc)and any car has own characteristics:
the Arrow(celica,sega rally) and Shadow(delta, sega rally) are 4x4 cars
Outrun's Ferrari, Turbo Outrun's F40, Lambo(Crazy cars?), Vette(Test Drive XXX???) are sport cars, rear drive.
Daytona Hornet and F1 Pole Position are racing cars "ever straight".
Chaser and Chaser S (From Chase HQ and S.C.I) are turbo sport cars.
You can play this game like you want: Like Sega Rally, Like Outrun, Like Daytona.... !!!
The Multiplayer mode is simply funny and amazing.
The best thing is the drifting technique and the tilting of Wiimote. (someone don't like it, but if you are
GT racers, you will love it!!) Very nice weather cycles (The world become white when it's snowing!)
Hot pursuit can be played in cooperative: 1 on 1, 2 on 2, 3 on 3, 4 on 4!!!!! (4 cops, 4 thieves!!!) mixing human/AI players.
Very interesting original game modes (specially in multiplayer (I SUGGEST 4)) Time trial and Take the flag.
In championship and single race, the Pit Stops are very technical, and you must save your tyres and fuel.
Totally a game very complete, a gem!… Expand
It's like Minecraft meets Sega Racers meets Mario Kart. And if you are astute, you'll notice some actual Sega racers here. There's the Ferrari Testarossa from OutRun, the Hornet from Daytona USA. the Lancia from Sega Rally, Formula 1 cars (Virtua Racing perhaps?). Also there's what looks like the Porsche from Chase HQ. Also Lamborghinis and Corvettes...
Take a look at their website. You can see what looks like the Ferrari Testarossa & F40, the Hornet, & the Lancia and Celica. I find that fascinating. Also, the Chase HQ car is coincidentally named "Chaser," HA!
As for the game itself, it looks very charming. Not brutal and absurd like Burnout or Split/Second. It has pit stops and "cop chases." The way the cars "shake" and slide back and forth when they drive is very Sega-esque. THESE GUYS must be Sega racing fans, I know it!!! GIVE THEM PROPS, PEOPLE!!!
The only bad news: it's only for the Nintendo Wii. I would get this in a heartbeat but I only have the Xbox 360. Also, I don't know how much customization there is...looks like you can design your own cars and tracks although I doubt you can do the former and the latter is questionable...
Download it from the Wii Store. DO IT FOR GREAT JUSTICE. AT THIS POINT IN TIME, WE MUST STICK UP FOR ANYONE REPRESENTING SEGA'S GLORY DAYS!!!… Expand
This was a hard game to rate. While the amount of content you get for 500 wii points is to be appluaded, the game itself is a mess. The handling is poor, the pixels make the car slow and choppy and it is next to impossible to catch up. Playing in multi-player is a little better, due to you both having the same problems. This is a missed opportunity. I was expecting so much more.… Expand
