Action-packed death racing, this is what Speed Kills is about!
Traditional, isometric, powered by Unreal Engine. Players compete in various championships, ranging from bootleg rallies on the outskirts of the galaxy to big-league circuits set against the goliath skylines of metropolis cityscapes. You can purchase offensive and defensive vehicle upgrades, buy new cars, collect power-ups and earn bonuses.
Classic gameplay, inspired by the 16-bit isometric racing games
5 planets/championships to compete
Over 50 unique tracks
8 fully customizable and upgradable vehicles, ranging from beefed-up pickup trucks to futuristic hovercars
Speed Kills as the title suggest is a racing game but sadly it suffers some problems that make the gameplay not pleasant. The game is way too hard to be considered as pleasant. Apart from that there as some technical issues as well, sometimes you get reset into a checkpoint during the race not to mention the achievements are buggy too. I don't like it.
Speed Kills is a love letter to a genre that has not been explored in years, or rather, a point of view that has not been used in a long time: That is, an isometric perspective in racing games. It is a great experience that, while it does not have a lot of replayability, it might be worth going back to from time to time. Visually speaking the game is not impressive, but the graphics do fit the setting and the gameplay. The only complaint about them I can think of is that sometimes mines are difficult to see. Gameplay-wise, Speed Kills feels like a true successor to Rock and Roll Racing. There are many vehicles you can buy, each having different weapons and being upgradeable in multiple ways. The game has no plot to speak of, and the objective of each planet is accumulating a certain amount of points and being amongst the top three racers of the division to move to the following planet. Finishing races gives you money that you use to upgrade your car, buy ammunition for your weapons or a new car. The game's soundtrack is not particularly great but it is fitting. Should you buy Speed Kills? I would say it is worth getting at full price if you are a fan of arcade racing games with an isometric point of view. It is completely skippable or at least worth getting on a sale otherwise.
Racing, the sport of kings... or is it? With this game any on can become the "king". Why? This game has great game play, nice graphics and most importantly, is refined, so that there are minimal glitches and bugs in the game. The Game play itself is very strong and beyond that the selection of customization is just completely of the top, combined with many great tracks to race on. This game is a great racing game all round, with minimal faults, such as rare random crashes and the fact that there could be many more cars. This game could be more refined, but in my eyes, it is quite good.
