Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

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.

First off, I am by no means a racing game enthusiast, actually it's the complete opposite. Honestly the only racing game I've played and truly enjoyed as of late has been Mario Kart Wii, which is a blast by the way. I've purchased Split/Second after hearing the premise of the game, I thought it sounded really interesting and very unique. Looking back I'm very happy I took a chance on this title, I wasn't let down at all and have been really enjoying it.

Once you play this game and understand what it's trying to do you will come to the conclusion as I have that the "cons" are what makes this game different than most other racing game out there. "Rubber banding" is necessary to play the game as it was intended to be played. Consider this, if you were able to break out in first place and never have to look back it takes away from some of the main points of this game which is to cause destruction and to trigger traps on your opponets. Besides, if you can't pass the car in front of you do the next best thing, which is to drop a plane on him! Also, a lot of people complain about "drifting", which I must agree there is a lot of, however there are many other ways to fill up your power meter like "drafting" which in my opinion is the easier way to play. My final point is in regard to the lack of customization as far as the cars are concerned, again this is not what this game is about so if that is what you're looking for invest in a different title. This game is not about the cars (as strange as that is to say) it's about the havoc you can cause and to what extent you can cause it.

I hope my review has been helpful to you and thanks for reading, sorry for being long winded LOL. If you like to play games for fun, and not take things too seriously look me up, my Xbox gamer tag is MikeJMele.

First I will say that I am a big fan of arcade style racing games in which you can cause mayhem and destruction. In my opinion Burnout Revenge is the best game in that genre for the X-Box 360 but Split/Second is a split second behind.

Split/Second is set in a reality show where you must earn credits in races, elimination races or time trials, in order gain access to new cars, open up new events and advance to future episodes. Each episode is broken up into events and these tracks are rigged with booby traps that you can set off on your opponents, yourself if you aren't careful, or others can spring them on you. These traps are called power plays and you earn the ability to trigger them by filling up your power meter by drifting, drafting, jumping or nearly avoiding a trap sprung on you. When you do trigger them they make beautiful explosions, hurl obstacles onto the track or even bring buildings down. Also you can activate a route changer which changes the track and opens up a new path. If you time these triggers right you can take out multiple opponents or even yourself if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time. Spring them at the wrong time and they will miss taking anyone out and the power is wasted. If you finish the race with a top ranking you earn credits which go towards new cars or unlocking events, which are all automatic so you don't have to worry about managing them. You can always go back and retry an event again if you fail or want to better your ranking and try for first place, in order to max out your credits.

Overall this game is a blast, literally. It's really easy to just pick up and play and has a nice tutorial race to teach you about how the power plays and route changes work. The graphics are great.

This game is a blast-mostly the usual racing game, nice graphics, but a variety of games and boobytraps and shortcuts to trigger.

There are various race types including a normal race mode (with booby traps you can trigger once you build up enough "turbo", even SUPER traps-like an earthquake tearing up the course, etc), secret shortcuts, even changes to the track. But, beware because other racers can do the same to you AND it's not that uncommon to get hit with your own booby trap.

There is a "career mode", but we have mainly played in multi-player mode, only using career mode to unlock new cars/races/courses.

There's an Elimination mode-same as a normal race except that the last car on each lap is eliminated.

A mode where you race against the clock and all of the booby traps automatically trigger as you near them (as in the course itself is out to get you).

A race mode on an oval track where you and a number of drone cars follow semi's dropping explosive barrels out of the back of the truck. Last one standing with the most points wins.

An air assault mode where you race for time while numerous helicopters throughout the track launch rockets at you.

There is a decent number of courses (We've only unlocked 6 so far), cars and race modes to unlock, and get increasingly challenging.

What I most like about this is the co-op play capability. You and someone else in your house (as in me and my son) can play via split screen rather than requiring seperate Xbox's and Xbox Live accounts to play.

I really wish more parents with kids playing with their friends via Xbox Live realize that there are more games besides Minecraft and Black Ops to play together if they have the same games.
