Product Description

Platform: PC

Split/Second is an intense action racing game set within a reality television show. Competitors will 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 that drastically alter the dynamics of the race. Players must use pinpoint timing to obliterate huge structures and towering TV set pieces to tactically alter the track or create entirely new routes.

A combination made in heaven. This was like when I watched the movie SNAKES ON A PLANE, my reaction was: of course, why did no one ever think of this before?!

There is a great number of driving and racing games, some better than others. There is even a number of shooting&driving games. However, SPLIT/SECOND is a breed on its own.
When was the last time you had to race a collapsing overpass, dodge the load of an out-of-control crane or a wrecking ball, drive under a crash-landing cargo plane, survive a missile-firing helicopter attack, drift in an exploding airport hangar, or survive a Terminator-2 canal race?

Drifting (no wall-slamming penalty!), drafting, sling-shooting, close-calling crashes and General-Leeing your car will fill your Power Bar. Once it is full you can unleash PowerPlay attacks onto your AI opponents. And, trust me, you will hate them! From start to finish they will be scrapping your tailpipe - and you only need to slip for a split second to total your car. You can leave paint all over the walls but the moment your grill touches that central pillar or dumpster you are totaled. The good news is that respawning only takes a second - no time for the adrenaline to subside.

Choose the best car for the track and handling it will be no problem. Nevertheless, this is not an easy game - and, frankly, I missed those. Nowadays everything seems designed to be breezed through and quickly move on to the next game. Not this baby. Random events (not to mention unexplored shortcuts) make racing the same track feel like a new experience so memorizing the tracks will not be of much help. You will have to really hone your skills in order to advance. Quick advice: remap the PowerPlay buttons to something convenient as timing your attacks is essential.

This game, as a previous reviewer had stated, is simulator quality with the playability of an arcade hit. The fact that you can manipulate track layout with the "Power Play" system adds a whole new dimension. There are a multitude of track variants with some being quite nerve wracking with planes crashing and towers falling down throwing your car all over the track. Some areas appear to have compound mutations where you could use power plays to manipulate a track section more than once re-recreating an environment broadening the scope of the game tremendously.

Lighting, environmental elements, and particle systems come together with a solid focus producing a professionally polished platform title that can be quite expansive; coupled with the fact that the game can be played over a network connection says allot but also, throw in the fact that there are already un-lockable vehicles of varying types being released by various retailers. This all screams depth of play. You're able to enjoy some quality "me time" doing the "Tour de Excessive Force" then go online to show off your newly unlocked or easter egg ride with a lesson in how to manage "Public Relations" via an accurately delivered pyro-technique air parcel -- you get to have your cake and eat it too or, help someone else eat it.

This is an excellent example where a perfect balance between complexity and mechanics was struck with a focus applied by a planning and management team delivering a game that provides for its audience and not a marketer's box card. The developers are quite well known for their previous works in the "racing" genre and backed by Disney they had allot by way of creative influences and freedom as well as fat funding for their little, big budget opus.

This game is very fun to play. You may forget to blink at times with all the action surrounding you. I am a big fan or Mario Kart style racing and this just takes it to the next level where a whole course is rigged to blow. When I first heard of this posed as a "Reality TV show" it was a turn off because I do not usually like those, but really that just seems to be a marketing choice they made to sell the game. They really don't dwell on the "reality tv concept" and get you right into the action. The fact is it is a great arcade racer and more fun than many others I have played. I even proved that with 2 XBOX 360 controllers you can have 2 players play split screen. My other brand of controller was not detected during 2player split screen mode, it seems like pc games cater to the XBOX 360 controllers for maximum compatability. It's just a ganer preference, but I like arcade style racers like this vs. those that are to complicated to drive. The cars are generic and the music is nothing exceptional, but that didn't really bother me. Usually during racing games I play my own music from my mp3 player anyway due to differing tastes.

Let me just start off by saying this is my favorite racing game of all time. That being said, this is an over-the-top action racing game. Expect action movie-esque chase scenes and explosions rather than a realistic racing simulator and you will not be disappointed. It feels very much like a mature mario kart. Instead of firing shells and bananas at the other racers, you instead charge up your energy bars by drifting around corners, or drafting behind other racers, and then you use that energy to make deadly events occur on the track ahead of you, in an attempt to obliterate the racers ahead of you.

The graphics have aged well, the controls are tight (especially with a gamepad), and multiplayer runs flawlessly whether on local splitscreen or LAN. Unfortunately, Disney has since let go the studio that created this game, and also shut down the online servers, so online multiplayer is unavailable. The soundtrack and sound effects really draw you into the intensity of the races. The menus could use some adjustment. From adjusting settings, to changing controls, to backing out of the game itself, there is a lot of room for improvement in the interface.

I can't stress how much better this game is with an Xbox 360 controller.

- Great graphics
- Great sense of speed/intensity.
- Great soundtrack.
- Split/Screen and LAN modes are a blast.
- Easy to pick up (simple to learn difficult to master).

- Plays better with an Xbox 360 gamepad (not a con if you own one).
- Menus are poorly designed.
- Would benefit from more tracks.
- Online play has been disabled (Disney shut off the servers).
- Some single-player races are insanely difficult in comparison to others (I'm looking at you, Destruction).
