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....

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.

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.

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 :/.

You can make a PANDA in a PINK TANK here. Nuff said. 20/10

And seriously. This is kind of game that can be really fun if you've got friends to play it with. Good time killer. Good for having silly fun.

It has some disatvantages of course. Some may complain about physics and some other stuff. No game is prefect. And this one really isn't expensive.

Remember; You can make any game fun with right attitude! .... And friends if possible,

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.

Zero Gear is one of the best options of games to play casually with lots of friends. You can't exactly say it's a racing game because it is a lot more, you can race, play soccer, play tag, play pachinko, play basketball, hockey, a weird game where you punch other players in a precipice. Yeah, the usual stuff. Oh, and you can do all that with a completely customized car, in fact, you can customize it the way you want, no need to pucharse anything.
The game is really awesome to play with friends, don't even consider playing alone, bots suck and online community is dead, only buy this if you have friends. Zero Gear is full of OMG moments, it is simply incredible to play and provides lots of fun. The game don't try to be realistic, it takes a Mario Kart style aproach with items and stuff. I like the game a lot, my friends also do. Recomended.
