It's okayyy... closest thing to Mario Kart on PS3
on 20 July 2015
I was looking for a Mario Kart-esq game for my Playstation. I wanted a similar, split-screen game that I could enjoy with friends.
The idea behind the game is solid. I like that the track will change as you race (think Motorstorm Apocalypse) and your vehicle adjusts accordingly (just like Mario Kart 8). The combination can make for some pretty cool and thrilling moments. Unfortunately the overall game didn't really live up to my expectations. It just feels like a worse version of Mario Kart in basically every way.
To be fair, the game was fun at first as I was just getting into it with friends. Split-screen is the definitely strongest element of this game. However, playing alone wasn't as much fun. The single player made is really difficult! The bots were so good that I often struggled to finish 2nd or 3rd let alone 1st! Eventually I just got a little bored and just stopped playing.
Overall it's decent, but nothing to get too excited about.
