Pretty fun racing gamelok0812 | Nov. 22, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »
This game is similar to any other racing game out there except it is taking place in an moderate size open world similar to Burnout Paradise. THe game features racing mode to pit the player against AI drivers, challenge mode to challenge player in time for completion, as well as a free roam mode to allow player to just simply drive around the world and explore. While there isn't anything innovating about this racing title the game itself is acceptable for racing fans but just don't expect NFS expectation with many customizations and multiplayer play.
Huge World, Fun Racing but Slow-Paced for a Racing Gamethegaminglyfe | June 17, 2013 | See all thegaminglyfe's reviews »
Ocean City Racing has a huge map with lots of different vehicles to experiment with. Each with it's own unique attributes. The game is a bit slow-paced, there aren't many cars on the street and the city feels dead. I believe that to feel fast-paced, you should be shooting past cars. The races are fast but still don't add to the feeling of being fast-paced because you all seem to be going the same speed. If you are on a budget and want an open world racer for only $5, get this game. But if not, go with something else.
Not Bad!Plasros | June 14, 2013 | See all Plasros's reviews »
I wouldn't so much call it a "racing game" to tell you the truth. Racing is usually fast, hectic, adrenaline pumping. Instead of tearing a path to the finish line by battling other racers, you're taking it slow and steady at grandma's pace just to keep it on the road. With unrealistic collision physics (accidental wall driving in the tunnel) and inaccurate drifting (you spin all over the road, reverse does nothing, and hand brake is too powerful), you'll fight not to win a race, but to continue without wrecking.
While the game does have pretty good (if not particularly realistic) graphics for an indie racer, it has an uninspired soundtrack. You would think that the developer would counteract the slow and steady nature of driving with an upbeat soundtrack. Sadly however, our ears are given the treat of listening to someone play a guitar and sing slow songs that sound like every other band from the mid-nineties.
All in all, I'm impressed with the implementation for an indie GAME. However being in the racing category, it falls short in several key areas. I'll beat the racing mode because I'm a completionist, but free roam is pointless giving this game zero replayability. I wish I would have saved my $4.99 and bought a piece of DLC for NFS: Most Wanted instead.
Awesome racing game!Koomazaz | May 22, 2013 | See all Koomazaz's reviews »
This game is HUGE! This game is easily one of the best values in a racing game. For only $5, you can enjoy this awesome open-world city. The free mode is reminiscent of GTA but without the violence. On top of the free mode, OCR offers a pretty realistic race mode. The graphics aren't so great, but the huge open world makes it well worth it. Try this game, and you won't regret it!
A nice title, but that's allCavalieroscuro | May 21, 2013 | See all Cavalieroscuro's reviews »
Ocean City Racing has various modes, in which you can simply driving by the city or compete with other AI enemies in a racing. There are a lot of vehicles and this is good, the graphic is nice thanks to the Unreal Engine, but the game will bore you woon. It isn't strictly a racing game, because the "core" is around the free roaming experience, so simply search for a better experience then this, like Burnout Paradise for example.
