    Showdown may have slick cars, death-defying moments, and corny dialogue like the films, but it lacks the punch and precision that’s made the top Fast & Furious films so darn fun.

    Fast & Furious: Showdown is a nice example of how NOT to make a game.

    Fast & Furious: Showdown is one of the worst games we've seen so far this year. It’s technically poor, boring and doesn’t have that Fast & Furious flavor you could be looking for. And it doesn’t come at a budget price either.

    Those with even a shred of self-respect should head to a seedy truck stop, bowling alley or other similar establishment and use the forty dollars this retails for to instead play the vastly superior The Fast and the Furious arcade game.

    One of the worst games we'ever played, from every side you watch it. There's really nothing to save here.

    One of the worst videogames in recent years. Bad as a driving game, worse as a shooter. A short game, boring and awful OST.

    Cynically awful movie tie-in that is not just a terrible racing game but squanders the potential of it source material in almost criminal fashion.

    Speechless. Better than the film, better than gta 5, no lie. blows you away like a fan. The gameplay simulates real life better than likings og gran turismo and forza. See you on the streets Expand

    This game is the height of Movie Game Cash-In Trash, and is nothing but it. It has no entertainment value, insulting graphics, lack of a physics engine, poor controls, awful AI, and a complete lack of respect to the franchise and it's audience, whats more is that the game barely functions as a serviceable racing game, thus making it a non-playable game to begin with. This is not only among the worst racing games, worst movie games, or worst games this year, this game should go down as one of the worst this generation, if not all time. Bury this trash along side E.T. in the Desert and erase it from your mind, and your hard drive. Expand

    Seriously just stay away from this game. Horrible graphics, constant bugs and frame rate issues, missions get ridiculously repetitive, and the game is just in general horribly broken. Expand

    Game is terrible. Nothing else really needs to be said about it. Buggy missions, buggy animations, horrible cut scenes in an effort to tie-in to a fairly decent movie franchise. Expand

    Another one of Activision's "Great" contributions to video gaming, Avoid buying Activision movie licensed games AT ALL COSTS. This piece of junk isn't even worthy of being in a junk collection. Expand
