    Onrush is a racing game that strips away the commonly understood mechanics of the genre to deliver something that is both fresh and classic at the same time. And a vivacious multiplayer experience that rivals some of the big contemporary shooters of the day.

    OnRush is an exhilarating, old-school arcade racer... with both its feet firmly planted in the new "online multiplayer" millennium. It needs more depth in its class system and more modes, but it's fun as hell.

    An innovative arcade racer that is highly entertaining, both offline and online. The singleplayer will entertain you for a long time to come and the online component is an adrenaline-fueled funfest. Codemasters delivers a fresh arcade experience that dares to be different and that in itself is remarkable. Even though there are some minor gripes Onrush remains a very capable, fun and innovative racer at its core. Recommended.

    Codemasters signs an innovative driving game with good manners. A worthy successor to MotorStorm with competitive additions but lack of game modes.

    Onrush is an authentic madness, which is fun and vibrant. Although it seems that this is a long-term proposal that will depend on the support of the community.

    A bright, invigorating spin on the arcade racer with a few foundational issues it never quite manages to overcome, Onrush's fizzy free-for-alls are best enjoyed in small doses. [Issue#151, p.91]

    Onrush takes the most interesting elements of its older brothers but at the same time it tries to be its own game. However, the game can´t decide what it wants to be and the result corresponds with it. [Issue#287]

I've been playing this all night, can't get enough of it. Looks amazing especially at 60Hz and in HDR too. Can't wait to get a proper team together and start using those abilities as a group. I can see this being a very deep game tactically. Expand

    Onrush is a blast once you accept that it has its own unique spin on arcade racing, played the beta and bought the game a 9 out of 10 for me

It'sOnrush is fast, fun, and intense--for the first hour or two...then the monotony and shallow racing mechanics kill the initial excitement. It's a solidly executed, yet highly derivative take on team-based arcade racing that is unlikely to hold the attention of anyone for very long. This Motorstorm/Blur hybrid is clearly built for quick sessions of nonsensical mayhem, but the ridiculous presentation reminds me of any one of the dozens of vapid MOBA AKA "Battle Royale" titles that seem to have spread like a plague. Your money and time are better spent elsewhere. Expand

We got you covered, this game stuffed with flashy things and wave things"
    Gameplay idea of linear derby, when you smashing each other not on the arena, but on the racing tracks is quite good. However, sometimes you will ragequit because you just don't understand how you got rekt, mechanics are really shady sometimes.
    At least music not bad

    Senseless "racing", no Motorstrom, you just hold "accelerate" and "boost" all the time. No "goal" other then mindless crashing of AISenseless "racing", no Motorstrom, you just hold "accelerate" and "boost" all the time. No "goal" other then mindless crashing of AI controlled "bots" that are only there to regenerate your boost, then followed by an opposing team that you need to "takedown". You drive on some sort of race track wih jumps and some "shortcuts" that are useless due to there being no goal in racing, there is no winner or number of tracks, all there is is the stupid "takedown the other team"... that's all there is - but not the fun part with weapons etc. ... just bumping and more or less useless special "attacks" after you used your boost long enough to fill it up.
    Character and vehicle customization is just one weird costume and all others are just reskins of the original if you do not want to go to the real money shop...

    Probably the worst "racing game" of the last 5-10 years.

    1st - Style: The style of the game is very hard to bear for people over 14 years.
    Probably the worst "racing game" of the last 5-10 years.

    1st - Style: The style of the game is very hard to bear for people over 14 years. These embarrassing figures, the horrible music, these stupid dances, you could think that this is satire.
    2nd - Pacing: Pacing in the game is horrible. The makers absolutely didn't understand why the Crashcam was cool in Burnout. Here I have to watch forever how I crash due to a small stone in 4/5 cases due to mediocre physics. After that I can watch another timer ticking down and hope that I don't get placed unfavourably in a curve during respawn and crash instantly. But the worst thing is this completely irrelevant statistics presentation at the end of a race. For minutes I see idiotic AI riders who have done something supposedly great and therefore present their stupid dance. Click away? No way, go to the toilet, or make a coffee, or make a Power Nap.
    3rd - Game Design: A racing game without real races and then there are "races" you don't even have to win. If the task is to make 3 barrel rolls, then it doesn't matter at all whether I or my team pursue the racing goal at all.
    4th - AI: Sometimes okay, sometimes the worst racing games have ever seen.
    5th - Balancing: Completely broken. Some tasks are impossible to accomplish in a race/tournament, which is why some of these extremely boring races have to be driven several times.
    6th - WTF moments: I was just back in a race where you didn't give a damn about the mode/goal. Since I had fulfilled the task, I simply placed the controller next to me to wait until the AI won the race. Good idea? Not really. I was kicked because of inactivity...from a single player match? What were the developers thinking? Of course I was allowed to fulfill all the tasks again, after all I was kicked out of my own game and didn't finish it.

    Blind fanboys might say "ItS nOt A rAcInG gAmE". Yeah it might be a racing car combat whatsoever. But the "combat" aspect is even worse than the racing part. This game is neither worse your money nor your time. Even if you got it for free, DON'T waste your time with this digital rubbish.
