Nail the perfect line in the future’s most challenging stunt sport! Grab your bike and hit the rails in this stylish stunt-racer all about tricks, skill, and speed. Chain together huge combos on tracks made of floating rails, but watch out: touch the rail of the wrong color and you’ll explode! welcome to FutureGrind!

Summary

Everybody loves to grind, Grinding in games from Tony Hawks to FutureGrind to grinding inanimate objects like trees or bus shelters. Grinding is back and it is bringing the neon! FutureGrind is one of those games that test just how good your reflexes are, For FutureGrind sounds and looks simple enough, Match wheels and get a fat combo. Thing is this is all done at an insane pace, The slightest touch of the stick and it moves you full circle, Its said to not scare you but prepare you. Never before have I gone so long playing a game without blinking. I love the soundtrack and the whole atmosphere…I just absolute suck at the game. Assist mode or not I need stabilizers and the ability to slow down time. For everyone else, you get a satisfying score chaser.

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!
