To sum things up, it may become apparent that Black Rock actually lost to their previous game and released something a bit more unpolished and boring. That, however, is not how I see things. Pure became something people weren’t expecting it to become,...

In the end though, Split/Second has so much going for it that it's easy to recommend for kart and arcade racing fans alike. The visuals are great, the sound impresses, and there's enough game between the singleplayer season mode and fun multiplayer to...

International Review By Daily Rush on 70

S/S er en underholdende arcade-ræser, der sagtens kan levere en solid portion højoktan underholdning. Spillets unikke Power Plays er mere end blot en eksplosiv gimmick. Tidligt i spillet er de imponerende spektakler, men de udvikler sig senere til...
