Split second handles and moves like any other racing game. The differance? Explosions occur upon every turn. Trains de-rail, planes crash, gas stations explode, and i can't even count how many times a bus has tried to roll on top of me! In split second, you drift, jump, and draft to gain points, enough points allows you to cause road blocks, sometimes unavoidable by the opponent(s), and will get you in the lead. While doing that, you too are avoiding road blocks and explosions from the players behind YOU! Collect enough points, and your granted a special power play, that has the capacity to get you from last place to first, in sometimes less than 10 seconds. In other words, it is a good game. Music keeps your adreniline rushing, graphics keep yours eyes on screen, Car response makes turns and driving mostly esay, and if your playing a friend, thier shouts of distress from bieng blown off a cliff will keep a smile on your face the rest of the day. This game only needed more variations between power plays. It began having repitious courses and explosions, and sometimes caused irritaion. But the fun of the race makes up for that. Split second is a must have for all, and the next will hopefully come out just as strong, with bigger explosions, more tracks, and a new challenge for all us gamers. Look out, racing games, competition just exploded in, and is moving fast. Thank you for reading.
