Split/Second (Xbox 360)

 

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...

Having spent their entire lifespan as developers of racing games, Black Rock Studio knows a thing or two about speed. They are the brains behind such games as Pure and MotoGP '06 and '07. Split/Second, their newest creation is a showcase of all their...

Another issue I have with the game is the whole Decal situation. When you unlock achievements in Split/Second you also unlock decals for your car. Sounds pretty nifty right? Go online and show some bozo that you got the “Frequent Flier” decal (by...

From the developers of Pure, one of this gen's best racing games, comes Split/Second. This new endeavor is easily the most intense racing game out there, and one of the most unique, but falls somewhat short of being the best. S/S's premise is that...

Aside from some AI and multi-player issues, Split/Second should please any racing fan, but will definitely find a home with Burnout fans as this game has that series' sense of complete anarchy, but with a twist that hasn't been done before in the form...

If Michael Bay made Burnout. In the realm of racing games it takes quite a bit to stand out. The Burnout series took things to new heights with each release...

Power plays change the game ; Awesome explosions ; Solid controls ; Lush visuals

Track repetition ; Forgettable soundtrack ; Frustrating rubber-band AI

Disney Interactive and Black Rock Studio eagerly push forward with their new racing franchise, Split/Second. Gamers who expect traditional racing events, with typical challenges and circuits might be in for a bit of a surprise. The game adds a very...

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

The formula of Split/Second gets repetitive relatively quickly, so you may not want to stick around for long, minor AI issues

Whoever thought that there might be a decline in the number of racing games, May 2010 has showed us that is far from reality. May among being one of

Split/Second is one of those games that has a really solid concept and runs with it from start to finish. What ends up happening with this game though is that it looses that initial flare and ends up fizzling into a pretty standard arcade racing title....

Split/Second roared out of the gate and into stores a few weeks ago. Find out why you want to go along for the ride in this review.

Split/Second follows its “reality TV show” theme very closely in that I feel like it’s the greatest arcade racer to come out in a long time, but not everyone has caught on just yet. With tracks ravaged and different for every lap and timed explosives...

As I have mentioned before, I am not a huge racing game fan. While there have been some games that have really caught my attention, I do not tend to anticipate them or even consider buying them on their release date. I did not even buy Burnout Paradise...

Redefining Â"explosive actionÂ"

Superb track design facilitates its neat car combat hook perfectly; destroying opponents and changing the track are exciting additions to excellent arcade racing; freaking gorgeous

Cheap A.I. sometimes defeats the purpose of power play attacks

I thought the most fun youÂ'd ever have playing Split Second is during your first race, and yet driving beneath a crumbling freeway or evading a crashing plane never wanes in excitement. I expected the thrill of racing through exploding environments...

At what point does a racing game not belong in the “racing” genre? It's a question I asked myself constantly as I dodged missiles, explosions and debris in my play through of Split/Second. S/S is the successor to 2008's Pure out of Black Rock Studios....

There is plenty of variation between cars, with fictional manufacturers created for the game. Another cool visual piece is the evolving designs on your racer. As you win more races, your number and various other logos will change as your work your way...
