Summary: I looked forward to playing this racing game on three screens with a steering wheel. Sadly this racing game doesn't support either. The lack of three screen support would be acceptable(lets face it not all games support this) but the lack of steering wheel support for racing game isn't acceptable. If you enjoy driving games using the keyboard or some type of xbox style controller knock your self out.
Summary: I'm not calling the game garbage because of the graphics or anything like that but I can't give it any rating higher than 1 and wish I could rate it lower than that. I'm calling it garbage because of the fact that you can't change the keyboard controls. All of my racing games allow you to change your keyboard settings and I like to have the UP,DOWN,LEFT & RIGHT keys for driving, the B key for looking behind,the SPACEBAR for games that have Nitro or Boost and the C key...
Summary: I posted my original review at the bottom, so you can still see how much I enjoyed this. This is now a 1 star game because activision took down the servers. The online community was small, but people still raced online. Racing online was by far my favorite part of the game, and it has been taken away. My original review: Everyone calls this game "mario kart on steroids." They're kind of right.
Summary: First off, I'm a big fan of Split Second. Secondly, I got this on PC through steam, which apparently was a huge mistake. As it is, I cannot authenticate and create a user because of some server issue. So, I am only playing the solo campaign, which is unacceptable. But let me tell you why this game really stinks. Computer opponents are a joke, tracks are dull/monotonous, the power-ups get old fast and this game can't compete as a straight on racer.
Summary: Normally, I don't write a review, but I really hope to save other people the $35. There is a lot of potential in this game, but unfortunately the problems on the PC version of the game are crippling. From what many other people have been saying (here and elsewhere), you're probably best off with an XBOX version of this game. I got the game shortly after it was released in May. Here we are two months later and no substantial patches to the PC version.
Summary: the following review is for the pc: so i was looking forward to this game since a couple of months ago and what a disappointment. my friend tried it out and warned me it's terrible before i tried it. i was hoping it can be that bad, and boy was he right. so here goes the pros/cons pros: 1. nice mix of tracks with multiple paths. 2. 20 cars per match 3. good amount of weapons 4. licensed cars looks good cons: 1. where's the chaos?
Summary: My son has been anticipating this game since its initial release date of Nov.3 was announced. We received it, finally, today, after two reschedules. His excitement at this was very short, though. This site says only that we need Windows XP or Vista. Okay, so far. The package says Intel Pentium Dual Core. Still okay. But 3.4 GHz? And it needs a seperate video card. Amazon, could you at least have mentioned those details in the specs?
