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.

    Pero yo que he jugado el forza o el GT que son juegos maravillosos, Ami me consiguió agachar el juego al punto de terminarlo pero aún así no me arrepiento de haberlo jugado

    Such an inspired masterpiece cannot be given such a low score! Definitely one of my all time favorite games! To put it simply, this game is amazing.

I have played some fun free games in the The only reason not to give this game a zero is because it's free and you can easily delete it. I have played some fun free games in the past, but this game is just irritating. The soundtrack is bad, the controls are bad, the gameplay is bad, and pretty much everything else in this game is BAD. The only reason I tried this game out is because of the few achievement points you can pick up in the game, but that still doesn't even justify anyone downloading this. Expand

Quite possibly the worst piece of advertising ever, as well as the worst XBLA game thus far. Expand

    You might think that it is a good thing when they release games like this for free. WRONG!
