I’ve played a decent amount now and I am quite fond of it. I think like content wise it probably should be a $30 game or whatever, but honestly if you want this type of game just fuck it and spend the $40 and have some silly fun.
I haven’t moved on to more difficult races yet;, still checking out all the courses and leveling up some stuff, but it seems to be more about just making it through the crazy levels as fast as possible than really competing with the other racers, so the rubber band ai which is definitely present doesn’t bother me as much. These are also one lap deforming courses, so yeah just go as fast as you can, take out anyone in your way, and find the best shortcuts etc.
The courses are just insane lol, the yeti one really gets me the most so far, but they all are full of crazy shit happening and things falling apart and huge drops etc. It’s just fucking fun. There’s things like three keys to find in each level to unlock cars and collecting money and upgrading the vehicles to give you stuff to do besides just winning races as well. I mean, it’ll take time just to find the best shortcuts and all as well which I’m sure will be needed in the higher tiers, there’s a lot of alternate routes here.
I think it’s one of the nicer looking games on the switch i’ve seen recently as well. Only played in handheld but it’s a solid 720/60 and has a lot going on during the races but doesn’t seem to have any issues. The sound is..ok I guess? Idk its low cuz i’m usually watching tv at the same time.
But yeah there is also no online multiplayer, there’s 30 courses which is great but they are all one lap 2min and under courses, no mission mode or anything like that. Just arcade, single race, time trial, local mp, and the tour mode which is the main complete in cups of four races and win tournament mode.
You have unlocks and keys to find and stuff but that’s essentially it. It’s not a lot for a $40 game imo, should have been priced at $30 would be fair. However it’s just really fucking fun so if you are in the mood for this kinda thing I’d say just bite the bullet.
