Race around multiple tracks trying to murder your opponents & win the race!
Collect weapon parts during races then attach them to your vehicle, upgrade them by completing races & earning cash rewards. Also collect car parts to gain access to new vehicles & upgrade the speed, handling & armour by winning more races. The stats vary slightly for each car, weapons can be selected before the start of each race, for me I found the gatling gun the easiest to use as I was playing on a KB. Gamepad would be much easier though. Other guns include, shotgun, sniper, missiles, rockets & a flame thrower, but only one can be used at a time. Bumpers, mines & a laser sight can also be fixed to each vehicle & if you select to race a different vehicle, the attachments remain from the previous vehicle. None of the cars can be customized unfortunately, no colour paint jobs or tinted windows, decals, different wheels or tyres.
As you race round the tracks killing off all your opponents there are nitrous boosts to collect, cash, repair kits & ammo boxes. The main guns which do all the damage have limited ammo. The tracks are fun & simple with some detail, ranging from snow, sand, dirt/mud or tarmac, but none of the vehicles including your own can be knocked off the track. So unlike Micro Machines V3 for example, it's more like Rock 'n' Roll racing without the rock. Controls are simple but sometimes become unresponsive, but this is usually to give the main 'boss' of the map an unfair advantage. Many times I noticed that the 'boss' will be able to remain in front of you whilst using no boost even if your vehicle is using boost. Many things in the game seem to 'magically' increase the bosses speed, like, turning a corner, hitting you or another object, taking damage or the last 1/4 of the final lap 'magically' makes the bosses vehicle faster!
Most races are 3 laps so to win you either continously shoot the opponent vehicles until they explode (even at minimum HP the cars seem to gain a 'magical' armour bonus & refuse to explode for a while) or lay mines or try to ram them off the track & crash into the side. There are also exploding fire barrels which will most likely kill you more than the opponents. Some races might have 5 laps, others just 1 lap, all the way up to 42 laps. I completed 2 of these & they are way too long & boring, no guns, no items, nothing, just 42 laps around the track behind a boss which will always win.
Not much of a story, but you basically unlock vehicles & weapons until you are able to take on the final challenge of racing some guy who's a cross between the stig/Racer X. The ending seems to suggest a 'part 2' is possible.
There are a lot of achievements to unlock, fun, simple & addictive, challenging at times due to mildly irritating lack of response to controls &/or opponents with 'magical' powers.
