First off: gameplay. The game itself is good, but nothing special. The same old story, about cars with weapons, shooting each other while racing. Looks like fun doesn’t it? It does and it should be that way, but yeah as always there is another side of the coin. In my opinion, the creators shouldn’t have take time to create a story for a game like this: post-apocalyptic universe race to the death, or to arrive at the finish line. If this time would’ve been spent on anything else, this game could finally achieve what others tried before too…The graphics are quite nice, but nothing, that would change the world. And here we are, the physics: the game is slooow… you die you really need some time to get a speed, at which you could call the game racing. (and let me take this note: don’t ever land on your side) I’d say the game is worth a try, but don’t expect too much.

Death Track: Resurrection is not a bad game, but the hard controls and gameplay make it difficulty and you probably will quit and never play it again

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.

This is one of the best racing games I have played. Your objective is to: a) Come first and b) Destroy your opponents cars, a bit like Blur or Split Second. There are loads of awesome maps that you can race on, and the graphics are crystal clear. You play a rookie driver who has to get to the top by beating people in races; cliched racing game scenario. You pick up powerups on the way to hurl at other cars, as well as speed boosts and various other things. Definitely reccomended.
