    Table Top Racing is a worthy competitor in the miniaturized car racing scene. For the most part, the issues I had with the game are small and didn’t significantly impede my enjoyment of the game. It offers a nice variety of tracks, including multiple variations of those tracks, and a nice selection of cars with fictitious names but recognizable features. Its campaign is a decent length, certainly into the double figures for a number of hours to completion, without being all too repetitive, on top of which it offers standalone ‘special’ championship races and online racing. In all, for some combat racing on Xbox One, this is worth a look.

    Table Top Racing World Tour is already a hell of an addictive little racer, but its long term charm completely relies on the online community – something that past history proves is a tricky proposition. It’s currently got just enough variety and draw to keep you going back for more, but it won’t be long before you find yourself exhausting everything the single player brings and that is when you’ll start looking for something extra. Should the online side really take off though, then, well, this could be a table top racer to challenge the very best.

    Table Top Racing: World Tour dares to be familiar, which could've been a deathwish. Instead, competitive gameplay, fun cars, adjustable tracks, and an enticing unlock system make the total package something greater than the sum of its common parts. Speeding around colorful tracks launching missiles, dodging oil slicks, and earning coins is something we've seen countless times in the past, but TTR gets most of it right so it still feels like a race worth winning.

    From time to time Table Top Racing: World Tour can feel a bit mundane; like it’s missing a certain je ne sais quoi. It’s a game I keep coming back to though, playing the odd hour here and there between other titles, and with this approach I greatly appreciate its charm.

    In the end, Table Top Racing: World Tour is fine. The physics can be wonky at times, and the upgrade system is laughable given the large coin payout per race, but the racing itself is solid enough that a few people will be able to overlook those flaws. It's a solid single-player experience due to the game's overall length, but with inactive multiplayer community, it becomes a tough sell. It's cheap enough that people who don't normally play multiplayer in their racing games won't mind anyway, but for those looking for a more complete arcade-style racing experience on the Xbox One, World Tour falls squarely in the middle of the pack.

    If the idea of racing pint-sized cars around on gigantic-looking tabletop tracks sounds like a good time, you'll probably get more than your money's worth from Table Top Racing. With a launch price of $14.99, it packs plenty of bang for the buck.

    Petit jeu d'arcade à la mariole carte mais joliment réalisé et bien fluide : on déplore juste l'aliasing assez prononcé, trop prononcé même.Petit jeu d'arcade à la mariole carte mais joliment réalisé et bien fluide : on déplore juste l'aliasing assez prononcé, trop prononcé même. Les effets sonores sont réussis ; la musique est désagréable (une sorte de house-rap qui pue du bec) mais on peut heureusement la désactiver.

    Les premières impressions sont cependant étranges et concernent la conduite bien entendu très arcade mais surtout extrêmement simpliste : les voitures ne tournent simplement pas, ne gèrent pas le moindre sous-virage et réfusent simplement de tourner ; en outre, elles ne freinent pas non plus lors des rares cas où l'on doit freiner (mais ça peut arriver).

    On peut optimiser les véhicules et en choisir d'autres, plus sujets aux dérapages mais cela change si peu (même avec des pneus "drift" !) qu'on se rend bien compte qu'il s'agit d'une cause perdue : Table taupe racingue n'a pas de moteur physique. Ou il est tellement moisi que c'est comme s'il n'était pas là. Et les collisions lamentables se hâtent de confirmer ce sombre état de fait, hélas.

    La difficulté est très mal gérée elle aussi et tout le jeu est une usine à grind afin de débloquer les championnats suivants à l'aide d'étoiles. Certaines épreuves sont littéralement impossibles comme celles consistant à rattraper en temps limité un bâtard qui file comme le vent (comme s'il venait d'arracher un sac à main) et à le tamponner. C'est juste n'importe quoi. Et imposé, car tout le reste... reste bloqué sinon.

    Quant au grindage, il s'agit bien sûr d'obtenir 3 étoiles le plus souvent possible, car finir avec le bronze ne suffit clairement pas pour débloquer toutes les merdes alentour. Enfin, les environnements ne sont pas très variés et bien des épreuves se ressemblent trop à tourner sans cesse sur les mêmes circuits. En conclusion, pas grand-chose à sauver dans ce jeu de petites autos sauf si on aime recommencer jusqu'à l'infini les mêmes conneries.
