RECOMMENDED BUT WITH AN CAUTION
i do like this game and all but this game has no players. if you have friend that also own this game then you both can have some fun. but if you don't and you want to play with strangers then you're going to have hard time finding server because finding at least one server with human player(s) is REALLY RARE. i and my friend created server and after like hour it was full of players but this was pure luck beacuse i wasn't really expecting players to join. so yea. i recommend buying this game for you and your friend or just for you if your friend already has it. oh wait. i forget about one thing. this game is pretty much abandoned by developers and that the controls are pretty laggy in multiplayer. i know that this can be annoying but you have to get used to it :/.

It's a cute and simple game that can be stupidly amusing with the right friends. Sadly not much content and very much so forgotten.

positives: i actualy find this a fun game. fun to race around tracks, and other different style of minigames. i enjoyed speeding around the track in my custom car and character.

negatives: the main problem i had was not having people to play it with. sadly its hard to get an online game. i really wish this game had more people playing still. playing against bots is fun but the thrill of beating bots wears off after awhile.

I recommend this game, but there are a few bad things to mention:
1.) There's rarely any servers.
2.) If you play with friends, and host your own server, there might be major server lag.
3.) I think it's been abandoned by the devs, so basically your going to get what you get, and you can't throw a fit.

Some upsides:
1.) There is currently a dedicated server set up by someone that runs continuously and has almost no server lag.
2.) It's extremely fun if you can get a bunch of friends together to play. Imagine Mario Karts, but on PC and focused around online multiplayer.

It's probably best to only get it if you have friends you can play with. I think this game is definitely worth the $5.

This is a first impressions after 1 hour of gameplay

Zero Gear is a Kart Racer that just reeks of mediocrity. The physics are completely off, making steering your Kart extremely difficult. The weapons are worthless and often help your opponents more than they harm them (like boosting them straight forward). The tracks range from boring to dreadful, and some of them are so long and tedious that I felt like hitting my head against the keyboard. The game promises 15 maps but fails to tell you that about 6 of them are ♥♥♥♥ty mini games that are amusing for about 2 minutes each. What made games like Mario Kart 64 great was that the levels were well designed and infinitely replayable, Zero Gear just doesn't have that. The community is as good as dead, and last time I checked there were about 3 games up, the fullest of which had 4 players on it. The AI is so unbelievably stupid that they're not even worth playing against.

The game is not all terrible however, the graphics are nice and colourful, the music is alright and there's some neat customization options for your character and kart, but when the game is so fundamentally broken, none of these things matter

Most of the positive reviews for this game seem to be from people who either got it for free or paid 99 cents for it during the Summer sale of 2014. A bad game is a bad game regardless of how much you paid for it, and Zero Gear is undoubtedly a bad game.

I first played this game back in 2010 free weekend offer.... I enjoyed it a lot, I saw this on steam Summer Sale for 99c bought and soon realized that this game has been abandoned. It's very difficult to find a server but for 99c it’s worth it. What I'd recommend is pick this game up on sale with your mates you'll enjoy it DO NOT pay full price for this as i mentioned it is abandoned by the community and the developer. I discovered there were only 15 maps. Considering all the mini games (which do get somewhat repetitive) are included in this list of 15, that leaves less than 10 maps to actually race on, but you can't go wrong with 99cent for this....

It's a fun game.

+ There's a few customization options for your character and your vehicle, but having the freedom to color them makes it look like a new item.

+ The soundtrack has some little cool tunes.

+ There's four different gamemodes to play.

+ The bots are a bit dumb, but nothing absurd.

+ Silly power-ups such as a robot that follows you, then hugs you and explodes your car leaving a trail of hearts, or a GIANT boxing glove to punch someone in the face (even allies!), a tornado, and more.

- The community is COMPLETELY dead.

It's cool if you like cart racing stuff or have played Hot wheels, it's fun to play, though not many people play it so you might have to play with bots most of the timesl.

This game is very worth the cost, its like mario kart but mario kart doesn't hold up to the beautiful standards of Zero Gear, if this game is ever 100% off you should consider buying it

This is a real eye-opener game. Unique design concept deep heart and it made ​​a very good detail. Plot is entirely inferior to Hollywood blockbusters. Role model is very fine, making good interface. So what? You worth trying to play!

花錢買這個,你不如去玩跑跑卡丁車.
