    ONRUSH is nothing short of remarkable. Its fast-paced and innovative functionality never buckles under the pressure of its constant action-packed personality. This is unlike any other racer available and manages to effortlessly stand out as a result. Its gameplay systems feed into one another exceptionally well, ultimately producing a robust and distinct experience that comes jam-packed with heaps of replay value.

    There may constantly be talk about redefining the racer for a new generation of gamer, but that chatter can now stop as Codemasters have done just that with brilliant effect in ONRUSH. And all by just removing that finish line.

    ONRUSH is a great arcade racing game that scratches so many itches. I wish the single player was a little more drawing and diverse. I also wish some of the modes were a little more exciting, but as a new take on the genre, it feels fantastic. Don’t skip this one, it is a must-play for anyone that enjoys arcade racing.

    The high-octane action is constantly intense. It looks and sounds stunning, especially on the Xbox One X, and it's easy to pick up and play initially but has an added layer of depth thanks to its class-based gameplay that will make it hard to truly master. If you're looking for a standard arcade racer to play alone, it's probably not for you, but if you're looking for something different and have a few friends willing to team up, ONRUSH feels wholly new and chaotically fun.

    A stupidly fun arcade racer that confounded our expectations, Onrush is the perfect game for those seeking something immediate, accessible and effortlessly entertaining.

    ONRUSH is a unique take on a racing game. The game has an easy-to-play, difficult-to-master gameplay that is fun for everyone. It’s a shame that ONRUSH suffers from a lack of game modes and maps, which unfortunately makes it feel repetitive after a while.

    Onrush looks like a racing game, plays almost like a racing game and feels like a racing game. But it’s not a racing game. It’s more of a MOBA game, and this is a cool concept, but it simply doesn’t really work.

It's intense fun. However, it is slightly frustrating. The networking, particularly on the ranking tournaments, keeps cutting out. The networking is not stable enough for competition mode, IMO.
    Other than that, there is a learning curve to understand the abilities of the car. But if you want fast action, great soundtrack and stunning gameplay, then this is it. The ranking mode and the multiplayer online is brill but expect some problems with the network connection, not as stable as it could be.

    Onrush
    No rush
    Onrush is an arcade racer that’s less about racing and more about car combat.
    This isn’t every racer for themselves, this game is all about team work.
    In onrush you can choose your own character, all with different skins and you race through an 8 hour long campaign with your 8 different vehicles all of which have their own skins as well, really making your arsenal of vehicles feel yours.
    There is no customizing or tuning outside of this.. as again this isn’t about racing this is about combat in team based modes.. this game features 12 different tracks that can be played at different times of the day and at different seasons, all of which are decently designed.. nothing really memorable here though
    but you go through a 6 v 6 match out of 4 possible match types,
    Theres overdrive , which is a score chasing mode, you get points by doing tricks, driving fast, and taking enemies down, and youre able to drive fast with the boost you collect by hitting jumps, doing tricks, take downs and pick ups.. theres countdown mode where your teams are driving through checkpoints trying to keep the timer going, lockdown where you’re trying to stay in a zone with the most amount of team members for 5 seconds to win a round, and my least favorite of the modes switch, where everyone has 4 lives.. but for some reason they decided to let your team stay in after all lives are lost really dragging this match type out longer than it needs to be…
    to spice the gameplay up there are again 8 different vehicles all with their own unique balance of offense and defense, some will drop boost for teammates to pick up, others can offer a shield, some will drain boost.. leave a smoke cloud behind while on rush is activated, which Is done by filling a meter by boosting…
    thanks to this mix of abilities by the different vehicles types this offers different strategy for different match types…
    And you can play these matches in campaign as well as online which match and ranked…
    as you play youll earn xp to level up which will give you a box of cosmetic items with different rarities each time… cosmetics can also be earned with cash earned from completing matches and challenges..
    all of this looks and sounds great..
    But onrush just wasn’t fun to me…
    I got no thrill out of just being a cog in the machine team, no matter what mode it was I felt like I was just going through the motions of fill up my boost, get some take downs, while occasionally having to drive through some gates, the strategy is offered but completely unnecessary…
    one bad person cant ruin a team which is good.. but one good person cant make a team either..
    which makes this competitive play just feel pointless…
    Onrush is a great looking game with a great soundtrack
    but the experience is so numbing…
    I stopped having fun once the tutorial was over and I got to experience the actual game.
    crashing is ridiculously easy, respawns take forever.
    its just not fun.
    I give Onrush
    a 5.5/10

    Красивая, быстрая, но бестолковая игра:(
    Цель игры - набирать очки, выполняя задания и челленджи, что порой делать интересно и весело, но чаще игра раздражает и хочется удалить… что я и сделал, пройдя 70% и с каждым разом играл всё меньше и меньше времени.
    Первая проблема - это отсутствие необходимости всех обогнать, как часто бывает в гонках или всех разрушить, как в Twisted Metal и Destruction Derby. Здесь нужно набрать очки для команды, выполняя определённое задание в зависимости от класса транспортного средства.
    Вторая - отвратительная реализация механики столкновений, когда непонятно вынесешь противника или нет… чаще нет, даже на самой тяжёлой тачке можно огрести от мотоцикла, когда несёшься на него, а он просто немного двигается в тебя и это просто бред!
    Реализация механики взаимодействия команды отсутствует почти целиком и все хаотично бесятся на экране пока не надоест и победу одерживаешь чисто случайно. И ладно бы физика повреждений была бы крутая, как в Burnout или Motorstorm, но она тут рахитная и не зрелищная:(
    Интерес играть в такое отпадает через пару часов, о чём гласят большинство обзоров, благодаря которым игра провалилась и через полгода уже попала в PS Plus и чуть позже в Game Pass, где я её и оценил.
    Посредственность в чистом виде, не советую тратить время на эту поделку.

    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.
