  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Grab a custom hover-board and lay trail across the urban sprawl, racing through abandoned streets and battling in war-torn arenas. It is an adrenaline pumping action game that combines both arena combat and racing. Meet the cast of rebel Tracers and trick-out your board and weapon through cash and pickup tournaments. Then race, shoot, and grind your way to victory, taking on the circuit champions in single player mode or compete in split screen multiplayer with friends [up to 4 players]. Take it to the next level and go live, competing against 7 fellow Tracers from around the world. Gain ranking supremacy across a range of over 40 leader boards. [Gaia Industries] Expand

  1. From its mind-bending control scheme to its smorgasbord of play types, Street Trace's learning curve hews closer to "Catan" than "Hexic". [Aug 2007, p.81]
  2. Unfortunately for Street Trace there are just far too many better games coming down the road for it to be able to maintain the multiplayer community it will need to succeed.
  3. Street Trace: NYC provides a few moments of multiplayer amusement, but it doesn't have enough going for it to be compelling for long.
  4. It's a shame, as what initially looked promising all those months ago when we first saw it, is in fact one of the worst games on Live Arcade. Avoid.
  5. There is a place for more substantial 3D games like this on the platform but Street Trace: NYC provides nothing to recommend itself over the slew of more tightly focussed and expressed rivals on the platform.
  6. It’s a sound idea that’s torpedoed by poor design and bad play mechanics.
  7. A piece of crap. [Issue 26, p.118]
