I just hope they tweaked and improve the formula to address the issues I raised earlier because even with those small bumps in the road, Split/Second is still a worthy heir to Burnout's throne. If they can smooth out the ride, it will definitely deserve to wear the crown.
Absolutely stunning and fun game. It is such an unique racing game. The only one where you can destroy the scenary onto your oponents and totally modify the track routes for every racer in each lap. When that happens, it never feels like you're on the same track. Love this game. Waiting anxiously until it goes backward compatible on Xbox One.
I truly liked this racing game a lot and I am not a fan of racing games at all. Split second is a lot like Burnout revenge with a unique twist... I let a friend play it who was a big fan of racing games and he loved it in all honesty!!! You can get the game for a decent price and has a decent online multiplier community, so I say its worth every bit of 15 to 20 bucks and you will get more than you paid for :) This game is a must have!!!!
The definite arcade nature of play sets this up to be experienced with friends or online. Everything is so simple – the screen is uncluttered with trivialities like a speedometer or map, and the controls are limited to just a few buttons. It really should do well as a casual title to play with mates. Restarting a level takes only moments, allowing players to retry levels in a snap, and the awesomeness starts right from the minute the level loads. As a single player experience it may not have the longest lifespan, but it could become the most popular arcade racer out there.
Split/Second Velocity is a great arcade racing game, with fresh and unique ideas that gives new life to the genre. Spectacular and fast as there is no other, unfortunately its gameplay mechanics are so restricted that players can't really improve their skills, and that is not as fun as it should have been. With a deeper array of game modes and gameplay mechanics, this would have been an amazing game.
This is a great racing game and I am not big into racing games... Just play it and find out for yourself. For starters this game will kinda remind you of racing games like Burnout Revenge except with a pin and you will dig all the shortcut routes you can take in the game also. Even if you do not like racing games I would at least give this game a chance, it is worth your time.
Combat racer that's different in that instead of shooting down competitors yourself, you instead trigger roadside booby traps to slow down the enemy cars. Reasonably entertaining in short bursts, but the handling is sluggish and it never feels particularly fast. Occasionally spectacular but the novelty wears off after a while and it's a little too similar to Burnout Revenge, which is a much better game.
This games pretty amazing, great graphics explosions,mingames, races, etc. But it doesn't really change the racing genre, due to the fact that:
It's very simple, and it feels like it's for people who aren't fimilar with racing games, or children
It's lacks crash physics ( You can go at 5 miles per hour and hit a side real, and car will be totaled)
Cars can't be rammed off the road.
There's no free roam.
This is a great game however it can't go toe to toe with NFS, Midnight Club, Morta Foraza, or Burn out for that matter.
Beau et spectaculaire à souhait (c'est peu de le dire), très rapide (trop rapide ?) et rigolo les premiers temps... Très aléatoire aussi : la victoire y est davantage une loterie qu'une affaire de compétence. On a beaucoup moins d'influence sur l'environnement qu'on ne veut nous le faire croire, contrairement à un Wipeout par exemple. Ici on est surtout dans la confusion et la poudre aux yeux.
Le comportement pataud des bolides, pourquoi pas, mais l'IA qui triche en permanence est inacceptable : ils vous envoient valdinguer lors des collisions mais eux sont insensibles à toute tentative de votre part, leurs bagnoles ne bougeant pas d'un poil de cul (un effet également et tristement appelé "Wagon Turismo 5/6"). Ils ne font aucune erreur, sont à fond partout et vous **** toujours juste avant la ligne... Quant aux épreuves avec les roquettes de l'hélico ou les barils des camions, c'est vraiment n'importe quoi. Un très beau plumage ce Split Second mais un ramage très (trop) perfectible.
SummarySplit/Second, an intense action racing game set within the world of a hyper-competitive reality television show. Competitors vie to be the first across the finish line in a made-for-TV city built for destruction, with the ultimate goal of becoming the season champion. Competitors in Split/Second don't just collide with other vehicles to ...
