I preorderd this game when it was 60 bucks but now that it is 18 bucks....best car game ur gonna get for that price.
probably the best racing game ever with none stop explosions (power plays) they have to make a second one.
Good game but....
Ok I know Split Second has been out awhile but I just wanted to add this review. I do like Split Second. It's a great game with good graphics, good courses and great gameplay ,and here comes the "but", but I just don't get a good sense of speed in this game. It feels sluggish. I should be flying around corners and tearing down straights but I don't get that feeling playing this game. It is a great game but Blur gives me more of that sense of speed. I know maybe I'm strange saying I like a racing game but it's feels sluggish. This one should be about the speed and tearing up the track while driving your opponent into the wall. I do like the concept, the gameplay, the graphics, the destruction but I just don't feel the need for speed in this game.
I would buy it again in a Split Second!!
As corny as it sounds, it's truth. This game definitely has replay-ability. Me & my friends play this hours on end, and this is not even an exaggeration. Of course, you can play a game for hours with a friend but even by yourself it can be fun. This is coming from a person who is not even into racing games. After playing the demo and seeing how innovative and refreshing it was, I had to purchase it and I never regretted it. I recommend this to people because it's people friendly yet strategic on how to demolish others. They have several modes so even if you don't like certain things, they have multiple modes you can try. It still, obviously, revolves around racing or beating a time however. If you ever had any doubts about purchasing this game, I assure you, you will have fun.
Great Racing Game. Will be keeping for awhile!
This is an awesome racing game. The Xbox Live is great and many people still play it. I can find a race almost anytime of the day or night. The season in this game is fun but could get annoying or boring. Detonators are extremely difficult and annoying. Since there are 12 "episodes" it'll keep you busy for awhile.
Boring... Drab... MEH...
Despite talks of "explosive" gameplay, this game is actually pretty boring. The thing about most racing games is that while in a race, there are "OMAHGOD OMAHGOD IMMA CRASH OMG I MADE IT WOO! OMG GOTTA TURN QUICK! NOOOOO MISSED THE SHORTCUT, OH CUT THROUGH HERE YES YES I MADE IT OMG A WALL DONT CRASH OMG" moments throughout the game. Awesome graphics and sound of explosions can't replicate that feel, and that is why is boring. Also take note that the multiplayer is basically the same as the single player mode, but with voice chat. Oh and that the single player mode gets way to hard for the cars you unlock. Not a good game, but you know if you want to waste your money, I mean thats ok. If you want a good racing game, chec k the reccomended section of this reveiw.
Best Intense Fantasy Racing!!!
Explosions everywhere, falling buildings, and cars zooming through all of that. This is the kind of racing I've been dreaming off. I don't why some people hate disney games so bad. Not all of them are. The best 2 games from disney I like the most is this game, and Kingdom hearts. Other than that, people should give Disney some credit. If a movie was made out of this I'll watch it over and over again. It's awesome!!
Under rated and Overlooked
This game always gets passed up because it's made by Disney. I took a risk on it and I don't regret it.
Pros- The graphics are great and the gameplay is great. I compare it to Mario Kart, but with real cars and instead of power ups, you gain powers by drafting and drifting to destroy the environment and create new routes.
Cons- The cars available for you to choose have made-up names but are clearly based on real cars, It would be cooler if you could actually use real-life cars. I find the whole "TV Show" campaign a little cheesy since it's completely unrealistic, but it is very unique. Once you beat the campaign, the only thing left to play is online which can be very laggy.
You'll need to make Split Second choices.
When I first got Split Second, only one thing could go through my mind: It's made by Disney. I was pretty impressed by Pure, the ATV racing game developed by Disney Interactive. I didn't really enjoy this game until I got further into the episodes within the game. Gameplay follows a consistent story line of a show, featuring episodes that the player decides to take on. Graphics were over the top, making this racing game more than just driving. This game didn't last me long as I personally do not enjoy racing games, but this one caught my attention. 72 events within 12 episodes of pure racing demolition and fun, this game may last the average racing fanatic more than myself. There are other types of games that I enjoyed more rather than the story, such as Survival and Air Revenge. Entertaining to say the least, but overall I gave this game a 8 because of it's amazing graphics and interesting gameplay, but lacked the overall lasting appeal to my taste.
This is one of the best games to play! I recommend this game for people who like explosions,racing,and action.This game is for ages 1 through 999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999. I hope you enjoy this game and write an excellent review!!!!
