High-Def Digest
23 September 2011
  • Summary: There are two distinctly different types of racing games on the market these days: Realistic simulations like the Forza Motorsport series, and arcade racers like the Burnout franchise. Both have their devoted following of fans, who run to the local video game store every time a quality title is released. Split/Second, from Black Rock Studios, falls into the latter camp.

  • Excerpt: When you look at a box for a racing game and you see the name Disney on the cover, you might not think about a hardcore arcade racer. You would probably expect to see a kid oriented kart racer.

ActionTrip

  • Conclusion: Apart from a few minor AI issues Split/Second is actually an enjoyable game. The hectic gameplay mechanics lead to some pretty engaging racing moments and things get even more exciting when you jump into online multiplayer in modes such as Elimination and Survival. Sometimes you may escape total wreckage by an inch, whether by skillful driving or out of sheer luck. Either way it can be an immensely fun ride.
  • Pros: A decent arcade racer with flashy cars and high-speed chases through crumbling hazardous environments, cool atmosphere, a rather unique recipe resulting in some really exciting moments, especially in multiplayer;
  • Cons: The formula of Split/Second gets repetitive relatively quickly, so you may not want to stick around for long, minor AI issues.

Split/Second (X360) - Review

VGChartz
6 June 2010
  • Excerpt: With the two releasing so closely together and sharing so many similarities, comparisons between Split/Second and Blur are inevitable. Both are pure arcade racers that borrow the vehicle combat elements most often associated with kart racers, but Split/Second’s method of delivering that combat is what sets it apart from both Blur and the kart racing sub-genre as a whole.

  • Excerpt: is a pretty straightforward example of modern arcade racing. However, what separates it is the mighty good trick it has up its sleeve.
  • Pros: Creative track design, Destructible Environments, Good graphics and effects
  • Cons: Pretty severe rubber-band AI issues., Lack of car variety., Air strike, Air Revenge, and Survival are not very enjoyable.
