Review: Nippon Marathon (PS4 PSN)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nipp-On Track To Greatness?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under racing on  900x

Developed by Onion Soup Interactive and published by PQube, Nippon marathon is a sort of marathon racing game that takes place in a semi-fictitious version of Japan where you and several other contenders race through lengthy courses filled with hazards such as watermelon canons, open sewage manholes, and pitfalls among other things as well as obstacle courses. If this concept sounds fun you'll probably want to continue reading our review to find out what we think of the game!

Topics tagged under racing on  900x

The gameplay in Nippon Marathon is reasonably enjoyable with a fun concept and refreshingly unique gameplay mechanics, you'd think it'd be a home-run, but some shortcomings really hold the game back. Firstly the positives are that Nippon Marathon has a large assortment of courses, fun hazards that aren't unfair in nature, and excellent multiplayer modes including four-player multiplayer races, a unique bowling style mini-game, and an obstacle course competition for up to eight players for crazy multiplayer fun!

The negatives are the really unresponsive and hard to master controls which can be flat-out frustrating at times and the ridiculously dumb A.I. which is so easy to beat that it essentially makes the single player story absolutely pointless and boring. This of course seriously hurts the game's overall score.

The audio-visual presentation of Nippon Marathon is meh, it certainly gets the job down and isn't terrible, but overall is quite forgettable. The graphics are 3D, look passable, while the music is there and doesn't sound bad, it's just kind of there which isn't good for the game if the audio-visual presentation feels this bland. Overall this hurts the overall score of the game.

Topics tagged under racing on  900x

Bottom-Line: With unique and often enjoyable gameplay, at least in multiplayer and a decent amount of content, Nippon Marathon could have been absolutely amazing, however atrocious controls, a lacklustre single player story mode, and a forgettable audio-visual presentation really hold the game back. We give Nippon Marathon for the PS4 a decent level of recommendation.

Review: Super Pixel Racers (PS4 PSN)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Grand"-Prix Racing!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under racing on  SuperPixelRacers_20181018215503-1024x576

Developed by H2 Interactive and published by PQube in North America, Super Pixel Racers is a 16-bit isometric racing game like no other! It's uniqueness is by far it's greatest strength, but does the game have any major drawbacks or flaws? Continue reading our review to find out the answers to these questions and more!

Topics tagged under racing on  SuperPixelRacers_20181024164337-1024x576

The gameplay in Super Pixel Racers is actually quite deep, with refreshingly varied missions and tight controls that are extremely intuitive and easy to learn. We were expecting a top-down arcade-racer, but were surprised to see that the game is actually a mission-based racer with progressively more challenging missions that actually get quite difficult later on.

The story? There's not much of a story to talk about and the game is quite short. You could easily finish the game in an afternoon binge, but what's here is a superbly crafted masterpiece worthy of praise!

Topics tagged under racing on  SuperPixelRacers_20181023225406-1024x576

The audio-visual presentation in Super Pixel Racers is superb. The graphics are done in an isometric 16-bit style and are fairly detailed and the game's animation is quite fluid which is always a plus. The music and sound effects are decidedly retro and fit the game well!

Topics tagged under racing on  SuperPixelRacers_20181020205647-1024x576

Bottom-Line: With great gameplay, excellent controls, and a superb audio-visual presentation, Super Pixel Racers is an a fantastic mission-based racer that we highly recommend! We give the game a good level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 8/10

Review: Horizon Chase: Turbo (PS4 PSN)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pole Position!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under racing on  Backup-1-1600x900

Developed and published by Aquiris, Horizon Chase: Turbo is a wonderfully trippy old-school racer that the developers obviously poured their hearts and souls into crafting! We knew Horizon Chase: Turbo was going to be good, but even we were floored by the game's quality! Continue reading our review to learn why:

Topics tagged under racing on  Location-1600x900

Right off the bat you can tell that alot of love went into the development of this love letter to the arcade racers of the 90's! The gameplay is similar to titles such as Super Hang On and other old-school racers, but you'll immediately notice that the gameplay is drastically better than the retro games this title tries to emulate.

The controls are intuitive and exceptionally responsive, the game is also quite challenging which is a delightful surprise in today's time as most modern arcade racers lack much challenge. Horizon Chase: Turbo also possesses a ton of content spanning hundreds of tracks across many different regions which will provide players with dozens of hours of gameplay to enjoy.

Topics tagged under racing on  HorizonChaseTurboReview_Pic03

The game has gorgeous old-school polygonal graphics which look really striking and detailed while the soundtrack and sound effects are great and fit the game well! The game also possesses split-screen multiplayer for up to four players which is great, but sadly online multiplayer is not an option.

Topics tagged under racing on  HorizonChaseTurboReview_Pic05

Bottom-Line

With awesome gameplay, flawless controls, and a superb audio-visual presentation, Horizon Chase: Turbo for the PS4 is one game no PS4 racing fan should pass up! As such we give the game a perfect level of recommendation!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10

Review: Flight of Light (PS4 PSN)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rhythm Making A Splash!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under racing on  Flightoflight02

Developed and published by Crystalline Green LLC, Flight of Light is an ambitious foray into the world of rhythm games and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with the game, but what makes the game worth getting when there are plenty of other rhythm-based games out there? Continue reading our review to find out!

Topics tagged under racing on  Flightoflight01

The gameplay in Flight of Light is relatively straightforward, yet unique with six-axis controls and what is essentially a combination of elements from the runner, racing, and rhythm genres you won't find another game like it period. The motion controls are fantastic, switching between the different lanes on each of the games tracks feels fresh and new, the visuals are also quite nice.

Topics tagged under racing on  Flightoflight03

The game is not without faults however, as there are only twelve relatively quick tracks in the game and what's worse is more than half of the tracks feature rather lackluster music which is not good in a game like this. Regardless we think the game has enough positive aspects to give the game a decent level of recommendation, just know that the game may have very limited appeal.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★¾☆☆☆ 6.75/10

Review: Aqua Moto Racing Utopia (Wii U eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thrilling Ride, But Rough Seas!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under racing on  Wiiu_s19

Aqua Moto Racing Utopia is the Wii U's only Wave Race inspired indie released on the console, so of course many people might jump at the chance to hit the waves on their U, but is this game worth it's $10 asking price? We think so, but only if you're a big fan of the sub-genre and here's why:

Topics tagged under racing on  Wiiu_s20

The gameplay is pretty good with a wide variety of environments and courses, decent water physics, and excellent controls. You'd think the game would be a fantastic title right? This is not necessarily the case as some of the visuals look like they were ripped straight from an N64 game, especially the characters and obstacles, however the background scenery and water looks nice.

Another negative is that the avatar customization is extremely shallow, and the rubberband A.I. is a nightmare to deal with. You can literally play a perfect game and still lose at the last few seconds of the race. Thankfully this only happens once in a while, but it's still a bit annoying.

Topics tagged under racing on  Wiiu_s21

The soundtrack and announcers are pretty good, but the game's biggest flaw is that there is no audio during off-TV play which is a dealbreaker for many people ourselves included. That said the game can be fun at times so if you like the genre you might enjoy Aqua Moto Racing Utopia, but just know that it has its share of flaws.

Topics tagged under racing on  Wiiu_s22

Bottom-Line:

With good gameplay, a sizeable amount of content, excellent controls, and a decent audio presentation, Aqua Moto Racing Utopia had potential to be a fantastic game, but mediocre visuals and terribly cheap A.I. severely hampered the game's overall polish as did the lack of audio during off-TV play and as such we give this game only a decent level of recommendation.

Score: ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ 6/10

Breaking News: Nintendo of Europe tweet teases at Mario Kart 8 DLC


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

More Kart racing content on the way?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nintendo of Europe recently posted a tweet on their Twitter account that has caused speculation of the continuation of Mario Kart 8 DLC, as seen below




Mario Kart 8 is a fantastic game, as mentioned in my review here and the DLC we have so far is very well made and at a good price, which I gave a detailed look at DLC here

Considering it's been a while since Mario Kart 8 has gotten DLC, Nintendo may have another batch up their sleeves as the Wii U is slowly going to fade as the NX approaches release next year. Although Nintendo is focusing on the new home console Zelda at E3 this year, here's hoping we'll get a direct around the same time.
