Excellent single player mode, poor split screen mode
24 December 2012
Summary: The single player mode has excellent graphics and comparing it to Blur, another combat racing game of the same generation, this is ways ahead. However, the split screen mode on the Xbox 360 version down scales the resolution to such an extent that it looks like a PS2 era game.
Summary: I enjoyed this game, it was worth the money I spent on it... but I'd have no problem returning it as it's not something that needs to stay in my collection after I've gotten my jollies out of it. The racing is fun, but the Cars are a bit too similar, and the game isn't too terribly deep...
Summary: the game was good it jst was easy to beat and only took me like 3 days with bout 3 hours per day so ya cars are not very creative or fancy didnt like that but the tracks and power plays are pretty awesome
Summary: The ecstasy and the agony. Split/Second start out with a bang. Giant set pieces exploding all around you and races that literally come down to a split second. The first few hours are blissfully spent racing, setting off explosions, and gaping. The game looks like a perfect 10.
Summary: This game provides a jarring racing experience, unfortunately with boring arcade physics. Everything is on autopilot and the game is very easy. I was able to win without paying attention to the game. The explosions became irritating so I turned the sound off.
What should have been an outrageously fun racer turns out to be flawed and frustrating.

Summary: Split Second has all the ingredients to be a wonderfully fun and over-the-top arcade racer, but half-baked design decisions hamper it in almost every way. The premise is simple: Race around a city on a "reality" TV show, blowing up everything around you to wreck and hamper your opponents!
Blackrock continue to make the best racing games you'll play for a week
27 May 2010
Summary: No one was looking forward to Split/Second more than I. No one. After the disappointment that was Burnout Paradise (that game was a lot of things, it certainly wasn't an arcade racer), Blackrock was finally going to step in and fill the void.
Summary: ok its an arcade game like burnout except as well as the crashes being so over the top and lovly you get to perform powerplays which blow the scenery up and in most cases destroy your opponents untill they respawn.Powerplays can be had by generating energy by drifting around corners, jumping over...
