Suprisingly good

Era | June 18, 2011 | Review of Death Track: Resurrection DNS

Firstly, I hadn't heard of this game before GreenManGaming, but I traded in some games and bought it, and can say it was well worth it!

The first thing I found great was the CGI cutscenes. The game takes place in a futuristic city where the Death Track sport is the most important thing to many people living in this future.

The gameplay is a basic racing kart game with weapons, the controls are essentially perfect and there are multiple unique courses from Moscow to London. It's a varied game, and one which you will hop on for a few races at a time. Word of warning though: some of the races are extremely difficult. But the story and CGI may make you want to keep coming back!

The loading screens can be quite long, and the overall presentation is not good, but not abyssmal. The car models are really detailed, but the tracks have a post-apocalyptic feeling/lighting/color pallete. I don't understand this, because in the cutscenes it's almost like a Fifth Element type word. I was running this on a HD4850 and could max it out at a sold 60FPS, definitely a well-optimized game. The "wow" moment when it comes to graphics are the special weapons effects.
Overall, it's hard not to recommend, especially at this price. It's one of the better arcade racing games. It controls perfectly with a keyboard and mouse (for shooting) and if you want an arcade racer, get this.
