  • Excerpt: Split/Second is what I would call a beautiful tragedy. It starts out memorable, and initially blew me away as I imagine it did with so many others. With its tight controls, a wide array of vehicles and expansive, twisting tracks, it has a lot of things hard-core racing fans seek.

Split/Second

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: There's no doubt about it, Split/Second is a finely balanced, visually stunning racer that loves the brown stuff hitting the fan. It's impossible to play the game without feeling cool when you evade the lure of an explosion, or wreck five opponents by dumping a boulder in their way.

  • Excerpt: Simulation racers and I don’t generally get along. I appreciate their attention to detail, and how accurately the digital cars recreate the experience of driving the real thing, but it’s all a bit boring.

  • Conclusion: Though the online multiplayer is not as engaging as other racing titles, Split/Second still provides an immersive experience full of close calls, last minute deal breakers and destruction not seen in any other racing game to date.

PS3 Review – Split/Second

PlayStation LifeStyle
26 May 2010
  • Summary: Split/Second puts players right in that sweet spot between a kart racer and a racing game. Instead of shooting red shells at other drivers to knock them off their game, you will draft behind them and wait for the perfect chance to drop a building on them.

  • Excerpt: Off-road racing fans fondly remember the release of Black Rock Studio�s Pure a couple years ago. Since then, the developers have been working on a street racing title that ditched the simulation style of game for an arcade racer.

Danger Lurks Around Every Corner

  • Conclusion: Concept: Trigger explosive set pieces to throw fellow racers off course as you gun for the finish line Graphics: It feels very fast, and the color palette and lighting make the environments stand out.

This shallow but rambunctious arcade racer may have only one trick up its sleeve, but it's a really good trick.

  • Summary: Speeding down an airport runway in a shiny red sports car is cool; speeding down an airport runway with an out-of-control aircraft thundering toward you is insane. That's the idea behind Split/Second, an arcade racer in which you wreck your opponents by triggering destructive hot spots scattered all...
  • 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
