Excerpt: It’s not enough anymore to just be a racing game. You need a hook. Mod Nation Racers has its customization, and games like Gran Turismo and Forza have their incredible realism. Split/Second’s appeal? You get to blow stuff up -- a lot.
Conclusion: The single-player campaign is structured as a reality television show on which you are contestant. Split/Second doesn't do a whole lot with the premise (you won't meet any slimy TV producers or peek in on any bloodthirsty viewers), but each episode's introduction and credit sequence is produced so...
Pros: Power plays lead to some fiery thrills, Slick racing model with a good sense of speed, Survival and Airstrike modes are neat twists.
Cons: Thin package that relies too much on a single mechanic, Scant online options, Lacks proper controller prompts.
Excerpt: Boasting a high-octane over-the-top style with explosive amounts of substance to match, Black Rock Studios' Split/Second is a sleek, addictive, and rewarding console racer made even better by its ingenious Power Play mechanic.
Pros: Power play gimmick is ingenious and unique; superb track designs; imparts a tangible sense of speed.
Conclusion: Ez a kis csalás nyilván arra kellett, hogy folyamatos legyen az izgalom, bár én ezt azért más módon oldottam volna meg a fejlesztők helyében. Szerencsére viszont hiába is keresnénk, egyszerűen nem találnánk más hibát a Split/Second-ban.
