    Any interest in this?. I'm cautiously optimistic after watching Higton's video a couple of months ago. Open beta goes live for everyone tomorrow.

    Tried it out during EGX Rezzed. It's fun but it's probably going to be a rental for me or buying this and trading it at CeX the next day.

    If it reviews well I'll pick it up straight away. Even if it's so-so I'll get it at some point, this gen is starved of arcade racers.

    I hope I'm wrong but I get the feeling that even if it reviews well it's still going to be another arcade racer flop.

    I'm particularly a fan of being able to choose between 30 with nicer graphics or 60 fps. More games should have that. Though with all that's going on i'm a little surprised they managed it.

    Looking forward to the beta opening up today so i can have a look. Couldn't see the client on the xbox store earlier when i looked.


    Got it now and played it a little, I'm not sure this is going to be worth full price as its a bit samey and you get taken out sometimes and have no idea why until the crash cam.

    Is the beta open or just for pre-orderers?

    It looks like it could be a blast.

    Not had a fun driving game in ages and was too late to the Rocket League party to get in on the learning curve

    Not impressed, not sure what point there is to a racing game without any racing in it.

    initial impressions are its cool and there’s lot to like but feels very limited and a bit chaotic. I like how they’ve tried something so different. But not sure it quite works.

    Yeah, 30 minutes and I’m pretty bored. Feels very random. Not a great sense of teamwork or ability to have a meaningful impact on the race. Also lacks a bit of heft and physicality which I thought would be a strength when I first started. Uninstalled. Shame.

    I was hoping there might be a bit more strategy and teamwork to it but that doesn't really work with the chaos. I've had a couple of hours with it and it's not really doing it for me.a

    By design everyone is racing close together in a pack but I felt the downside of that is everyone is driving flat out at a similar speed which makes it difficult to close down people ahead and actually get enough momentum for a takedown.

    It's not a bad game but I wouldn't be surprised to see it in the bargain bin a couple of months after launch.

    Yeah, I agree with all your comments above. Only had a quick go between downloading it and having to stop for the night, but it didn't leave a great first impression. Chaotic but without a sense of personal impact. I'd rather have a good old fashioned race.

    I'll see what reviews say though as the game could have more variety with objective types and the single player campaign.

    To be honest it left me wanting a new Motorstorm instead. :(

    I'm with the above. Had a bit of a play before bed and unless I'm missing something or players haven't learnt to game the mechanics well enough yet or whatever it feels pretty throwaway.

    I think maybe I was expecting something more like Wipeout on dirt roads from the trailers.

    None of it was engrossing to me, just didn't feel worth my time. The graphics were pretty poor too I thought. I didn't see anything of depth on offer, press x to go fast and then......very occasionally press triangle to go a bit faster and look a bit prettier, no thanks.

    I'm a bit torn - I agree mostly with the write up on the front page. Given the dearth of decent arcade racers I'll probably still pick it up and see how it goes - the progression will keep me going for a few hours at least anyway. Main issue was that it did all feel a bit random. I realised the bike is brilliant for the time based one, but other than that the combat is a bit all over the shop, it needs a sideswipe for starters. All you're doing is driving around and hoping you bump into more cars than the other team are bumping into.

    There’s a demo! So give it a go.

    Spoiler - based on the demo, it’s a bit shit

    Hold down R2 and just move left and right. Takedowns feel disconnected and random at best. Being tapped in the arse can seemingly destroy you.

    Good luck with this one Codies.

    Though if the beta was any indication, that will be worse than the 1st one.

    Arcade racers really are a dying breed. Wheres Sega when you need them?

    Forza horizon seems to be doing a good enough job of it.

    I love the Horizon series and look forward to 4 but its not quite the full arcade experience i mean.

    More Outrun/Daytona/Sega Rally, etc.

    Blue sky, cheesy music, big drifts...

    This just came out https://store.steampowered.com/app/633110/FAST_BEAT_LOOP_RACER_GT__GT/

    and i like the look of Racing Apex, kind of a virtua racing feel to it.

    Sadly, Onrush is a very frustating game. The game designers choice not to include weapons greatly reduces the real impact you have on each run.

    You don't have any course or trace, no weapon, no aerial figure, just the onrush track that requires a lot of luck.

    Futhermore, i prefere the southern rock and the outlaws culture to the bermuda party and flashy atmosphere.

    Actualy i supsect evolution never understood what had worked with the first Motorstorm.
