I have played all of the Super Toy Cars franchise and it’s been a long rocky road of good and bad experiences. Going Offroad and overhauling so much I went in hoping for a new fresh take on it all. I can report back that it’s still a mixed bag. They have indeed improved the handling and introduced a sometimes cool sometimes can be an absolute dick drift system, the atmosphere is better and in general, all the cars/vehicles look cool. I like how they have gone for a crazy amount of cups and events that is almost a celebration of all things Super Toy Cars to date. I am still miffed however that they have left I. The over the top hit collision crap, just tapping a wall or obstacle can seriously destroy any race it was a bitch in the last game, and it’s an even bigger bitch here. As a casual racer, Super Toy Cars is a lot better and I would add it’s the best of the franchise but it still needs a bit more tinkering because a game that has off-road in the title, it sure does penalize you hard for going off-road! I played more of this than any other of the games so it does have something but I also rage quit a lot so it’s definitely a marmite situation. For me, Super Toy Cars Offroad is a good addition and the better offering of the series.
