Summary

Very little has actually changed here from the original Music Racer is a game. this is a game that plays like a runner game. You drive between lanes and collect coins and avoid obstacles. Sounds good but the controls and movement feel really loose, you get no real punishment for hitting obstacles or generally messing up. Coins take so long to build up and get new cars and locations. Even then the cars all handle and play the same so they land up being just a cosmetic thing. Levels feel lifeless and flat with you only getting a nice backdrop when unlocking tracks. It doesn’t really serve a purpose at the end of the day, it’s just a big long grind with some alright music going. Music Racer is a flat experience with nice cars but it will take you months to get! Overall only grab the ultimate version if you are after another set of easy achievements or if you never got the first game.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
