Action-packed game, but virtually no storyline to it
19 February 2013
Summary: Split / Second is a great game. It's got lots of action in it, and explosions do take place when you're racing. It's like the movie Death Race, made into a game. I haven't beat this game -- I've been sporadically playing because it's gotten a little boring, truthfully. Reason why / Disappointments: It has virtually no storyline / plot to it; you just race to unlock other boards and cars.
Summary: Yes this game has cars and you compete against rivals. But NO it is not a racing game. Let me explain: 1. The AI is just too stupid. If you use a slow car... all other cars drive slowly. If you use a fast car... all other cars drive fast. 2. The car specs mean very little. You could win almost any race with any car. 3. The cars are not real. Made up car names and manufacturers just dont do it for me. 4. As you go up the episodes, the AI becomes unforgiving.
Summary: this game fun in the beginning because everybody likes blowing up things, but it gets boring. disney got creative with roadside bombs like in iraq but thats about all that is actually realistic i wouldnt buy it for the money paid for dont pay more than $15-$20
Summary: Look, I like it but its not great. I just wish Burnout could get back to when they were the best. I got this Split Second game because my people said it was almost like the Burnout of old not that Burnout Paradise crap. Well its not.
Summary: Nothing to crazy, it really annoys me that they didn't use real cars, that could have given this game an additional star. Overall a fun enough racing / action type game that is interesting in it's concept. Overall a worthy rental or picked up at a value price.
Summary: My biggest gripe about this game is that the cars drive like semi-trucks on ice skates. What I mean is these cars absolutely do not turn yet the slightest nearby explosion or even a standard curve in the road is enough to send these cars sliding back and forth. Then you have the rest of the cars in your garage that slide upon any attempt at steering.
Summary: Figured I'd give this one a try from Gamefly, and I actually had fun with it. Reminds me a lot of the Burnout series but slightly different. The story mode if you wanna call it that was set up in 12 episodes like a reality TV show which you can either take as pretty lame or cool but it doesn't make an impact on the game so it didn't matter to me.
Summary: Split/Second is an average game at best, and throw in the fact that it uses Securom for online activation makes it very frustrating. Before you can even launch the title, you must activate online, but you must de-activate it online when you uninstall it, or else you will lose an activation. You are given 5 activation limits with the key. You lose one when you do not de-activate.
Summary: I played this game last night and I hate to say it, but it's kind of boring. I was soooo hoping to enjoy this game, but I just can't get into it. It's like Burnout with explosions basically. Burnout, to me, was even more fun than this one. I have recently been playing Shift and Blur. Both of those games are great fun that I really recommend. Well those few hours I put in last night on Split/Second feel wasted.
