Manufacturer's Description

It's hard to make racing games seem fresh or original nowadays, but not if you put a bit of thought into it - or even better some high explosives. Split/Second is a street racer, not the illegal kind but one that's show on reality TV all across the country.

Everything looks normal until someone triggers a bomb
Takedown your opponents with massive explosions
The race course can turn into a scrapyard at any moment
Only skilful driving gives you the chance to trigger an event

Knocking your opponents into the odd brick wall is a traditional part of any racing game, but here you also race to be the first to trigger huge explosions rigged all along the track. Time it right and you can not only flatten rivals with a ton of falling concrete but you can drastically alter the course of the track to your advantage.

You've got to be a skilled racer as well as a demolitions expert though, with your access to the explosions dependent on how well you're driving and what moves you can pull off. Get it right and you'll not only beat the pack, you'll flatten it.

Key Features
  • Arcade racer : The most original racer for years mixes high speed street racing with action game explosions and deadly courses that literally explode around you.
  • Big brother : Race through 24 episodes of Split/Second's own in-game reality show, each with three events per show and many different race modes.
  • Careful drivers : From helicopters dropping bombs, to exploding oil tankers and collapsing buildings, this is the most dangerous racer ever made.
  • Racing pyrotechnics : Incredible graphics bring the dangers alive with enormous explosions that rock the whole course and change the shape of the track.
  • Multiple explosions : Amazing offline and online multiplayer modes let you test yourself against real human players using race types inspired by the single player.
About the Developer: Black Rock Studio
One of the top racing developers in the word, this long-established UK studio was acquired by Climax in 1999 to work on the MotoGP and ATV Offroad Fury series. In 2006 the company was sold to Disney, where it has created quad-bike racer Pure and new street racer Split/Second: Velocity.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Split/Second .... Heart/Pounding 27 May 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When you think of Disney .... sleeping beauty .... jungle book .... 101 dalmations comes to mind and then you see Disney Interactive and you think .... Ha Ha!! but look at their lastest game Pure (PS3). What a hit that was but it did have a few annoyances here and there but the graphics were awesome, gameplay was good and it had good replay value too for their first proper game that is not for kids.

Their second "proper" game is Split/Second .... downloaded the demo thought it was awesome and had to buy it!

Starting the game up, installing the game took quite awhile but it was worth the wait when you are taken straight into a tutorial on how to play the game on a test track, taking you through from how to break and accelerate to the feature of the game which makes it "split/Second", the power plays. These power plays range from simple blowing up cars, to the catastrophic explosions such as towers and plane crashes but be careful that you don't take your self out! these are gained by drifting, drafting ect

Structured like a television show, Split/Second's singleplayer mode plays out over a 12 episode "season". There are 4 races immediately available in each unlocked episode, and winning or placing in races rewards players with credits, which unlock additional cars and grant access to each episode's Elite race. The variety of different types of races make sure you're never spending much time on race modes that don't catch your fancy.

The controls in Split/Second are somewhere between Burnout and Project Gotham, with a heavy emphasis on drifting and drafting which is simple to do. Its a fun and easy game to play but if you slip up for even a fraction of a second they are back on your tail!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously Addictive 22 May 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this and modnations at the same time and after having plenty of online probs on the first day with my initial "i must have" modnations, stuck this in... and didn't get back the MNR the rest of the day!

Split/Second is set in a rigged to blow tv studio world which 8 drivers race round for the win. By drafting, drifing, passing and jumping you can fill up a power gauge under your car that once filled to at least one of three segments, can be used to tactically blow up parts of the track or set off set piece events that can then take out your opponents. Some of the set pieces literally made my jaw drop, as it all kicks off in such a big way and the graphics never slow down, not even online.

However once the initial thrills of the explosions and wrecking half the field subside a bit, it then becomes much more tacticul - especially racing online as everyone knows where half the stuff explodes, and its more about trying to wrong foot drivers and then catch them off guard or if someone moves to avoid say a blown up building, you blow up the bus next to them instead which takes them out, or drop a pile of metal girders on them instead!

I have to say its been one of the best and most instantly gratifying experiences that then stays with you and lasts I've had with a game probably on the PS3. Love it and recommend it to everyone who likes their racers.

4.0 out of 5 stars EVERYTHING WE'D HOPED FOR? 23 May 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Split second is a funny old concept: blow stuff up to try and blast your opponents off the track or crush them under the rubble of something monumental. It's a popcorn, Hollywood, nonsense of a concept that would be great fun to watch drunk with your friends if it where a film (I'm seeing Jason Statham as lead here), but is it fun as a game? Well you'll just have to snack on this handy list of good and bad points using your eyes and brain to assimilate and digest the information!

- Graphically it's a definite winner. Not only are all the reflections and other staples of the genre firmly in place but on top of all that, and a silky smooth frame rate to boot, you've got planes crashing inches from you, towers crushing cars in an array of fire and dust, helicopters firing rockets and the game just pulls it off with great panache.
- There is a good selection of cars to burn it up in - some great, some a little naff.
- Once you get used to the effects of each explosion and how they can be used to destroy things it all becomes a much more cohesive and enjoyable experience as you begin to time your destruction like a pure super villain. Of course this means that you have to play the tracks a good few times, and this can feel a bit trial and error, but if the game grips you with its unique hook then this shouldn't be too much of a problem.
- The levels where you have to dodge helicopter rockets and successive dodges = big point combos is a stroke of evil genius, it's both addictive and annoying as hell but it'll be sure to keep you glued till you snatch first place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Split Second 4 July 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Split/Second is a racing game with a slight difference, the races are part of a tv show which incorporates a death race style , full of explosions , missiles and destruction. So not only are you racing to win, your racing to survive.

Everything about this game is aiming at being larger than life, this is no Gran turismo and definatley aims at the Need for Speed crowd. Right from the off we know it's a little unrealistic as the announcer tells us we are racing and that billions will be watching........right.

The explosions and attacks are part of the games innovative "powerplay" system, basically the more flair and outlandish moves you pull off on the track, the more the power meter fills, This includes jumps, drifting or staying close to the back of your opponents car.
Being in 3 segments you can choose to save them up for one big explosion or use them as soon as you get it to gain a quick advantage, but that might not last as long, so a little bit of tactics is thrown in. The meter is a bright neon blue and trails behind the car, its not intrusive and doesn't take your eyes away from the car or the track, I would rather it be there than somewere else on the screen as it lets you keep your eyes on the action.

The explosions mean the race has an ever changing dynamic track, they can cause obstacles, shortcuts or even a whole new section of the track altogether. This means that everytime you race something slightly different will happen and you will have to expect the unexpected if your going to finish first.

Using your powerplays is a simple press of the button, when your able to use it on a car or area , a blue sqaure will appear over the object letting you know you can use it here.
