  1. Minus the crazy physics, Fatal Inertia really doesn’t advance the genre in any meaningful ways. I like the game, but moreso because it reminds me of other games I enjoy than because I love it in its own right.
  2. Fatal Inertia isn’t a bad first foray into the racing genre for Koei. It’s got a good look, decent personalization and a unique arsenal that should keep players somewhat entertained.

    Fatal Inertia is a decent Wipeout-style racer.

    The gameplay is decent.The crafts do feel a bit sticky at times,but don't handle terribly.Now,the collision detection is atrocious and some of the tracks are terribly designed.The combat is balanced and competent.The craft customisation is great.The game feels unfair at points though.

    The graphics are pretty good,with lush environments and good craft detail.The framerate stutters at times,but isn't detrimental to gameplay.

    The sound design is poor,but the good soundtrack makes up for it.

    Overall,Fatal Inertia is a decent Wipeout-style racer that is worth getting on the cheap.

    Futuristic racing games are not easy to come by nowadays. Why play a futuristic racing game? It's faster! It's more open to possibilities! YouFuturistic racing games are not easy to come by nowadays. Why play a futuristic racing game? It's faster! It's more open to possibilities! You can do things like shoot magnet balls and weigh down your opponents until they crash into the ground and explode! You can't get that kind of excitement from racing simulator. This game took some getting used to but you certainly can get used to the unique experience of piloting a hovercraft. I picked this game up just for the lols because it was $16. I was more than surprised that it has become one of my favorites. The only problem you might find with this game is that you smoke your friends too badly at it unless they own it too. I enjoyed upgrading my racers and had days of entertainment from this diamond in the rough. Full Review »
