Summary: I had Jak X: Combat Racing for the PS2 and was looking for something similar on PS3 (beside Twisted Metal). Split/Second is a fun racing game that uses powerups to trigger explosions or other events that can slow down or remove your opponents. As far as I can tell, though, there are only two ways to obtain the powerups - drifting through curves or drafting (tailgating). Like somebody else said here, drifting slows you down, so the better strategy seems to be drafting.
Summary: The game is released somewhere between 2010 and 2011 and it's still going quite strong with good graphics, smooth gameplay, and alive servers (in 2013). Pros: 1) Vertical or horizontal split screen offline mode is available, but you'll need a big screen (at least 58 inches) to enjoy the experience; and of course, another player. 2) The sense of speed and crashes with even the low budget cars is satisfying. This ain't formula one, and I am glad it's not.
Summary: Like the title says, fun and fast paced. This game takes a lot of concentration to see what's going on in front of you. Pay attention, or you'll crash yourself. Good entertaining game for all ages.
Summary: I just got to the half way point in the game and I am flabbergasted! This is what I was expecting when I bought Burnout Paradise.... Pros 1. Great Handle 2. Great Graphics 3. Challenging but impossible Cons 1. Redundant levels - This is the only bad thing I can say about this game... I'm halfway through the game and it seems like you just play the same level over and over again. It does have different shortcuts, and blow ups. 2. only 2 player spit screen...
Summary: This game would be an instant classic, because the concept of auto demolition had a good potential. However, Disney concentrated on commercializing it and ended up denying fans of the "hardcore"-ness of the game. In other words, it was dumbed down so Disney could reach a bigger audience pool. Pros: - Good concept, had potential. - Crisp graphics - Audio effects had no flaws. - Had some action but not enough. Cons: - Loss of concept after lack of expression.
Summary: i started off as a FPS guy [resistance, killzone2, COD, BFBC2, etc] and gradually moved to games like uncharted 2, assassin's creed, and red dead redemption. i don't generally do RPGs [FF, dragon age, fallout 3= 'cos i find them to be a bit tedious. so now you know what i like and play and if you like and play those kinds of games, hopefully this review will be helpful to you. the premise is pretty straightforward - you're a contestant on a reality TV game show.
Summary: I received the PC Version of Split Second for Christmas. While it wasn't the game I most wanted (wanted Need for Speed Hot Pursuit) it turns out to be an excellent and exciting arcade racer. The only problem I have with the game is that at certain points of the maps the game stutters and it even pauses which sometimes leads to an untimely crash. I feel like this game was coded for the XBOX 360 and as such probably needs at least a three core CPU to be totally happy.
