Ever since Black Rock studios was dismantled and the future of the Split/Second franchise has been put in jeopardy, I have been on the hunt for anything remotely as good as that game to latch onto (if you recognize my name on this review than chances are you've seen me the past 2 years dusting you online on S/S as it's similar to my tag ;) ).
The description of this gam makes it sound similar and it kind of is I guess. While the graphics, sound and handling as well as car design and drifting fall short of S/S, it does have a destructable environment you can gain power through drifting and destroy and seems to have a healthy amount of cars to unlock.
I realize my review is tainted as I am comparing it to S/S but that is the Platinum standard for me, so I can't help but measure games against it.
The game is fun and I will play it for a bit, but after an hour or so it just makes me want to pop in S/S and dominate for a while.
