The relentlessly twisted courses in Yaris might have loops or even be tube-shaped, but the Yaris never has to worry about sliding off track, as it defies gravity by scaling side-walls and going all topsy-turvy. Equip your Yaris with an arsenal of weapons to take out your adversaries, but be careful to avoid enemy fire, because once your shields are depleted, so is the game. Customizable cars: Drive either a Yaris Sedan, Sports Sedan, or the Liftback. Collect coins on the track and outfit your Yaris with weapons, shields, and tire configurations. Game modes: Race and take out your enemies in either single player or player vs. player game mode. Wild tracks: Drive on eight different tracks of progressive difficulty. FREE download: Yaris is a free Xbox Live Arcade game. Play it today. Gallery feature: Browse through the game's cast of characters, including all the Yaris cars. Twelve new achievements and new Leaderboard: Twelve new achievements to unlock, and a new Xbox LIVE Arcade leaderboard for you to dominate. [Microsoft] Expand

  1. As the title is completely free, you should ask yourself different questions related to value. For instance, "Is the title worth the 17.5 seconds it will take to download it?" That's a tough one. You could take out the trash in that amount of time, a much more rewarding task than playing Yaris.
  2. Avoid this at all costs. Simply put, it's just a hair shy of being completely broken. Yaris may be free but somehow, I still feel ripped off.
  3. Yaris might be free, but not even that can justify the space required to download the game. After all, what's your time worth?

    Last time we checked, a Toyota doesn't come with a ruddy big gun. False, and very bad, advertising if you ask us. Still, it's free. [Christmas 2007, p.98]
  5. I'm actually very fond of irreverent humor, when it's done right, but this, this is just awful.

    A festering turd. [Issue#29, p.118]
  7. Yes, Yaris is a free game. But that shouldn't be an excuse to put almost zero effort into the whole thing. Unfortunately, there are actually no redeeming qualities to Yaris.

    Quick - fun - engaging. As an Arcade title, this thing does the job.

    Free. It better be free. This game is garbage. If I don't get dropped off of EVERY single multiplayer match I have ever had before the Free. It better be free. This game is garbage. If I don't get dropped off of EVERY single multiplayer match I have ever had before the race has even started then I'm trying the poor single player. I know it's free, but if someone was giving you free puke would you want it? Barely warrants a download, out of curiosity or 200 painfully boring achievement points. Expand

The front end takes an age to register any button presses, the game itself is like a broken megadrive game with controls designed by someone who's never played a game. Quite possibly the worst piece of advertising ever, as well as the worst XBLA game thus far. Expand

I don't know how they could create such an abomination on humanity like this game. It creates chaos in our brains, burns our hearts and rips us apart. I'd rather rip my eyes out with a fork, chop off my hands, burn off my legs and barf out my intestines and eat them all instead of playing this monster. Life is at risk with this here, and everyone should stay away, and if you see an ad, shoot your TV and pray that this beast will not kill you. Expand
