Summary

Street Racing is a pretty good arcade game, it has a very deep customisation and upgrades ethos. Earn cash from races and driving recklessly (read Burnout style) and spend money on the many many options. There are no branded cars but they do look like branded cars but do feature branded parts and tires. Handling has a small learning curve as it feels loos especially when cornering, aside from that it’s all business as usual. The damage model is good albeit a bit over the top for hard knocks you take but it does look good. Different race types like elimination, racing or fun destruction based one where you earn points for blowing stuff up! Multiplayer is fine and just straight races with split-screen so nothing special. Overall Street racer is a fine arcade game that is fun for a while but won’t have long term legs.

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!
