"Burnout was good...Split second is what burnout wanted to be."
5 stars"

Ok lets make this review easy.

Pretend your in a movie studio. Almost everything you see, WILL blow up. Now, hop in a sports car. You drive, You set explosions, You try to win.

Split second is mindblowing. Nothing beats changing the track by dropping some huge skyscraper onto the other drivers, while you casually sneak off to the left to grab first place.

there are 12 huge campaign modes, so single player is a drivers dream come true. Im totally loving playing this game every second. It feels good triggering an explosion and watching 4 drivers go down from a sliding boat, dropping bridge, exploding rock face etc etc etc.

best arcade racer of this year- 5 stars

"A hell of a lot of fun"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

While it's certainly not a perfect experience, it's certainly a fun one. Power-plays are a fun and inventive spin on the arcade racing genre and drifting is definitely a huge aspect of the skill and enjoyment of the game.

My gripes are few – namely you can't crash your opponents apart from taking them out with the power-plays which is frustrating and the AI can be annoying as they always seem to mystically catch up to you at the last second.

BUT the graphics are great, soundtrack is solid and suitably epic, controls are tight and the levels (although few in number) are inventive and certainly a lot of fun in single or multiplayer. With those few flaws in mind, I heartily recommend Split/Second for fans of racing games such as Burnout, Flat-out or Need for Speed

"Best arcade racer since Burnout"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Split/Second is a high-speed, adrenaline-packed arcade racer, probably the best of its kind since the last Burnout game.

The highlight here is the ability to use powerplays to take out your opponents – which can be anything from collapsing an overbridge in front of them, to collapsing an entire building and re-routing the track.

The game creates a fantastic feeling of speed, even more so when you're in first place and attempting to dodge everything your opponents can throw at you.

My only criticism would be the AI, which can at times be pretty unforgiving, although nevertheless still beatable with the right tactics and sometimes a bit of luck.

In addition the tracks do repeat a little bit, and a few extra tracks would have been nice. Having said that, learning the tracks (and the powerplays) is a big advantage.

The online multiplayer is also solid and seems to run smoothly even when connecting to games from down here in NZ.

Most definitely worth a look for anyone looking for a decent arcade-style racer.

Description

You have made the cut to join a group of elite drivers chosen to participate in the global broadcast event known as Split/Second. Racing through a city created specifically for destruction, your goal is to become the season champ where fame, fortune and glory await. But first, you must survive a grueling 24-episode season of races in a variety of explosive locations to crush the competition and become the champion. When speed is not enough, the city is your weapon.

Split/Second is an intense action-racing game set within a global reality television show. Competitors vie to be the first to the finish line in a made-for-TV city set rigged to blow with the ultimate goal of becoming the season champion. Players in Split/Second don’t just collide with other vehicles to knock them from the track, but can also trigger devastating events and epic Hollywood-style explosions to take out your opponents and drastically alter the dynamics of the race. Being fast is not enough as players must use strategy and pinpoint timing to obliterate huge structures and towering TV set pieces to tactically alter the track or create entirely new routes.

Features:
  • The City Is Your Weapon - Trigger explosive, devastating events lined throughout the track to take out your opponents and drastically alter the dynamics of the race.
  • Every Lap Is Different - Use pinpoint timing to obliterate huge structures and towering TV set pieces to tactically alter the track or create entirely new routes.
  • Unique, Diverse Environments - Race through an explosive city featuring a multitude of locations, each with a unique set of Power Plays.
  • Intense Multiplayer - Compete in a variety of game modes in 2-player split screen or take the action online in races for up to 8 players.
