This game is kind of fun with many different game modes (some are very boring, others not so much.) The thing is, you can't play in single player if you aren't connected to the internet which means you have to be connected to the internet at all times in order to play. honestly, that is the main reason I dislike this game. the graphics are OK, however, the colors on some maps are way too bright; I had to adjust the color settings on my monitor (I would go blind otherwise). I'm definitely not playing this game again.

One of the most fun games I have in my collection!

For those that want to buy this game, I can't totally recommend it, because there is pretty much no one playing it, but it's not because the game sucks. If you have a friend or two you can have a lot of fun together.



P.S. Add me if you want to play. :)

Racing game that doesn't look impressive at all, maybe like some really cheap Mario Kart clone. But, there is something more in Zero Gear. After playing it I'm sure Rocket League was inspired by this game - 5 years earlied it had soccer, basketball and few more interesting sports that we will probably see as big updates for Rocket League in future. There isn't many active players, so most of time you will spend playing alone with bots. There are problems with controlls, sometimes game feel really stiff. Still, Zero Gear doesn't disappoint when it comes to having fun. With so many different maps/levels/modes, or whatever you can call them, you will have fun for really long time. Too bad it never become more popular game, since it had really good potential for that. It's still worth buying but only on sale, out of curiosity, to see that there are some indie racing games with neat ideas.

EDIT:
Or maybe Rocket League wasn't really and "upgraded" idea of soccer racing game in Zero Gear. Just found out that there is a game called Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars and it looks like Rocket League is sequel of that game. My bad.

Think the alternate version of Mario Kart for PC. This is a fast paced, balanced game which has alot of different game modes (stunts, traditional racing, sports, arcade). You can fully customize your kart and player sometimes resulting in hilarious and ridiculous creations. It is definetly meant to be played with friends as it is way better (AI can be as smart as a banana) and there are no active servers. Hours of pure and legit fun.

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....

A fun low-budget multi-player arcade racing game similar to Mario Kart.

Surprisingly, it features many game modes, which not always involve racing per se. The controls are arcade-ish and the power-ups are always fun to use against your peers: "EAT DA LOVE BOTS FOOLS!! MWAHAHA<3" (there's an achievement for this). Customizing your vehicle and avatar is enjoyable as well - just take a look at what people posted on the steam hub!

Unfortunately, they never added new content and the game is no longer supported by the developers. Although the game is moddable, it never really got any attention from the modscene.

Buy the 4-pack (during winter/summer sale, it usually goes for US$4) to play with your friends since most public servers are deserted nowadays.
