    Trailblazers, in a formula that blends F-Zero with Splatoon, becomes an excellent game and one of the best of its kind. Extremely fun in solo mode and a marvelous experience when played with friends, we recommend it as a great representative of driving games.

    Trailblazers is an amazing driving game that uses colors to bring something different to the driving genre. It's a pity that the multiplayer of this mix of Splatoon and F-Zero only allows 4 simultaneous players.

    With its innovative color boost mechanism Trailblazers provides a tactically inspired racing pleasure, especially for team players.

    Trailblazers is a fun arcade racing game – from its varied modes to the solid presentation and unique gameplay, the formula for success is definitely there. However, a relatively high price, inconsistent AI and barren multiplayer prevent this title from reaching the podium.

    An stunning F-Zero/Splatoon crossover, Trailblazers is tailored for players eager to feel again the speed of an futuristic arcade racing game. But its lack of content soon buries any kind of interest you might have first.

    Trailblazers shows not only a lot of potential, but also its share of unnerving flaws.While this could have been the ‘Splatoon of fun racers’ in the end you’ll remember it mostly for technical shortcomings, harsh AI and bugs.

    Trailblazers is a great concept that can be fun and very enjoyable, but the lack of complexity and depth ends up having a negative impact in the experience.

    This game features 8 characters with their own unique stats and 10 tracks that can be raced forwards and backwards
    This is a racing game all about team work and making your own boost pads.
    Think wipeout meets Splatoon. and I even got bits of an ssx vibe from playing this game…
    The great soundtrack was the first thing I noticed. the game sounds like it was plucked right from the ps2 giving me those nostalgic racing feels.
    There are 3 different modes here,
    Story Mode Custom Race and online race. unfortunately, this game suffers the same fate all competitive modes do in indie games. in that it’s a ghost town, which is a shame because there is potential here with this games mechanics to make this a really fun co op game.
    Playing solo in story mode is almost as fun as this games potential though.
    Here you’re introduced to all 8 of this games characters and you’re given 3 tasks in each race as these characters and to progress the story you must complete one of these 3 tasks. so, this isn’t a straight up racing game all of the time which I appreciate…
    this is about strategy. every race has to be tackled in a different way to accomplish your goal.
    every character has their own colors. though through most of the campaign you’ll have a team mate..
    your job is to use your stored paint and paint the track your teems color, this will give you speed boost..
    its painting your own boost pads on the track..
    again playing with real people this offers ton of strategy potential..
    every track has multiple branching paths…
    you and your partner could take the road less travel and dump your paint making what seems like the long way a now shortcut..
    you can also use your paint to attack and spin out opponents by shooting the paint ahead of you and you can cover their paints stopping their boost for the next lap.
    and the paint Is on a cool down so that it actually means something.
    the racing is so fast and fun, I loved the tracks despite them not really feeling memorable to me..
    I don’t feel like a ton of effort went into creating the world around the tracks..
    the tracks themselves are fine..
    but none of them are brought to life..
    My biggest issue with this game though is how aggressive partner ai is..
    and no I don’t mean against the other team..
    your team mate is aggressive towards you as well..
    I was blocked and slowed down by my own ai partner numerous times throughout my journey of this games campaign..
    the nuisance is mild.. but its still there..
    The ai definitely doesn’t understand team work.
    Overall Trailblazers is a worthy pick up for those missing the ps2 era arcade racers..
    the game is a bit frustrating at times due to the poor team work from ai, but is still challenging in all of the right ways, and fun,
    I give Trailblazers
    a 6.5/10
