Split/Second (PSP)

 

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...

On the console Split/Second is full of edge-of-your-seat moments that will make even the most hardened arcade racing fan sit up and take notice. This was the game that allowed you to literally drop an entire building on your opponents, all while you...

Split/Second doesn't suffer from a lack of great ideas and explosive action. Between cars blowing up and bridges falling down, there's something exciting happening around every turn. Unfortunately the whole thing is spoiled by crummy handling and an...

There are better racing games available on the platform, but that doesn't mean you should ignore Split/Second--just be prepared to exercise a little patience amidst the debris and detonations.

Sumo Digital's port does add a new track and entertaining challenges, such as driving in a semi truck in a Survival mode variation, plus another that's very similar to Burnout's Road Rage mode. But otherwise, this is a significantly compromised version...
