A fun game, my not look like it at first, but when you figure it out, it is kinda fun. It is a racing game set in a post apocalyptic time. All of the landscapes look nice, cars are also fine. Sometimes, I get bothered by a little bit unfair AI, but I got used to it soon and learnt some tricks to manipulate with bots. You have a nice choice of different cars and maps, so you can't easily get bored. Also (this is very important for some people), this game has trading cards and achievements.

I don't remember when was the last time I played simply racing game - where you just pick one of the cars, pick the map and just race, trying to be first or trying to make your enemies fail. It's that kind of game. Every vehicle have it's own special attacks that you can use on others. There are few maps that are different themed. There is a nice, snow one, that greatly fits on christmas! There is also multiplayer mode, so there is 6 times more fun - you can play up to 6 players in total. The only thing I think this game is missing is local coop (split screen). It could be a nice things, old racing simply for fun games had this options. Graphics and music from this one aren't anything special but well, those aren't the most fun things in game like that. If you are looking for something simply, even to play few minutes a day, this game is for you.

When you see the 44 metascore you might think this game is broken, but if you actually read the reviews you'll find out that the reviewers always complain about the same 3 issues: 1st, they were too dumb to notice that this game is NOT a simulator, it's a mayhem arcade. So, complains about the "unrealistic physics" are just stupidity. It's like complaining that Mario Kart is not realistic! 2nd, the game is too short. Now, it is true that there are too few tracks and too few cars, but the game actually runs very well with no bugs at all and it is actually fun for some fast destruction racing with friends. And 3rd, the graphics are not top quality. But in my opinion, they are good enough. (Actually, I just can't understand why people give so much importance to graphics on games. Fabulous graphics may impress you at first, but after some minutes you get used to it and your entertainment will actually rely much more on other aspects, not on the graphics, unless it's so bad that it hampers gameplay, which is rare and definitely not the case here) Though there are better titles out there, it's 44 metascore is simply absurd. This is not the first time I see a totally misleading metascore. I can't trust it anymore after this one.

When I got this game I thought it would be bad, because of how it looked, but I actually played it one day and the game is actually really good, I may have lost a time or two, but the game is really fun once you get the hang of it.

As far as racing games go this is a pretty basic game… That being said, it is surprisingly fun to play! The vehicle choices are all well planned out, each having its own stats and weapon variety, so the diversity in the vehicles is there… The tracks are where things fall a little flat, because I think there is around 4 tracks and 1 festive track which is simply a re-textured version of one of the other tracks, so I feel there could have been more content in this regard. The handling of the cars does vary between the vehicles and at times it can feel quite flighty, believe me you will have a favorite car.
Overall it’s a fun game if you’re looking for a simple kart-esque racing experience! Unfortunately, the multiplayer does seem to be dead most of the time, so that is worth keeping in mind!
