☺ Easy to play.
☺ Lovely visuals.
☺ Brilliantly realised Portal and Team Fortress 2 maps.

☹ Unchallenging.
☹ Wonky physics.
☹ Drunk AI Drivers.

(Note: This game was played with a controller).

Mini Motor Racing EVO is a casual top down racer suitable for most ages, with easy to grasp controls and an aesthetic that greatly reminds me of playing with toy cars as a youngster.

While there is a decent selection of maps (and most notably the Portal and Team Fortress 2 maps are brilliantly realised), they quickly become repetitive as you play them again and again through the championships - in forward, reverse and with the camera on a slightly different angle (which is a surprisingly clever way of making the same track play a little differently). There is also an ingame editor linked to the Steam Workshop to create, share and download other tracks which is very simple to do.

While enjoyable to zip around the tracks and drift around corners, the AI opposition rarely put up any challenge at all (the exception being a couple of maps where you could do with a speed upgrade, that is easily passed the moment you have acquired it or a higher top speed vehicle). It also appears the AI Drivers have been drinking...while it's nice that they don't always perform the perfect lap, they will frequently slam into corners or boost directly into a wall.

The physics in the game can cause frustration, as you slap to a halt after performing a jump or snag on a slightly uphill piece of track. There is also an oddity that before a race gets underway you get a glimpse of the tablet UI for the game, but that doesn't impact the experience in any meaningful way.

At the time of writing, there were no active multiplayer servers.

It's very hard to recommend Mini Motor Racing EVO except for the extremely casual gamer who's unfamiliar with racing titles and just wants a little fun zipping around a track.

Mini Moto Racing EVO is a game that ought to be more fun than it is. A isometric arcade racer in the vein of Rock ‘n’ Roll Racing and Micro Machines, from the outside looking in it would appear the stars had aligned for a brilliant modern take on the genre. The art style is adorable and bursting with charm and personality, it features an absurd amount of content, and the online multiplayer and track editor are just the icing on the cake to ensure you never run out of stuff to do. What’s so terribly unfortunate though, is all these good feelings evaporate once you get behind the wheel.

Mini Moto is designed to be extremely accessible, from the light as air physics to the quick and simple to navigate courses, which makes for an enjoyable first hour or so as you get your feet wet and start blowing through courses. After that point, the experience begins to sour. Races grow repetitive, often simply reversing the track or changing the lighting and camera angle slightly, and end in an extremely unsatisfying manner. Simply continuing on with them quickly becomes a grind, as you’re given such little reason to do so and the racing itself is far too shallow to sustain the game on its own.

Expounding the grind is the leveling system, which I would go so far as to say fundamentally breaks the game. Every car you drive can be upgraded with cash earned from races, but instead of scaling to your car’s specs your competitors just continue to upgrade their own vehicles the more races you partake in, presumably with the expectation you’d have similar upgrades of your own. What this means is that you are either stuck putting all your cash into one car for the duration of the championship mode, removing much of the fun out of having such a variety of vehicles to choose from, or forced to grind through the same races in order to have enough to upgrade another car to switch to without having to start again at square one. It’s supremely monotonous and a poor design decision for the sort of game the developers created.

Without a doubt my biggest grievance with Mini Moto though, is the astonishingly bad AI of the computer racers. They crash into each other even to their own detriment, fire nitros at the worst possible time, and in general act like an idiotic band of monkeys that somehow got ahold of dozens of vehicles. The lack of any decent reward for winning races is bad enough, but when you do so against some of the worst AI racers I’ve ever seen in a game it just becomes a chore to do so. The online MP could fix this in theory, but unless you have several friends to play with you’ll be entirely out of luck as nobody else is playing the online mode anymore.

It’s really a huge shame that so many elements of EVO are a product of poor design decisions, because there are a lot of genuinely fantastic parts to it that deserve a better racing experience. The art style for the cars and tracks is fantastic, with tons of color and some great off-brand recreations of classic and novelty vehicles. The track editor is surprisingly expansive and easy to use, which could have allowed for some great user generated content if people cared enough to put the time into making something original.

But regardless of its presentation or feature list, a racing game with poor racing is impossible to recommend. I put a lot of time into Mini Moto Racing EVO, more than I should have, but regardless of how long I played or what races I chose I wasn’t having fun with any of it. There’s something mind numbingly addictive about the way EVO is structured, pushing me through race after race no matter how little I got out of it, or how much I wanted to just call it quits because it was sucking me dry. I don’t want to say I hate the game, but it’s one I’m forcing myself to uninstall.

It’s like a bad relationship, giving me nothing but keeping me trapped until I finally come to my senses and realize I need to get out.

The game is a very quirky and cute RC car racer. The AI isn't as bad as everyone seems to be saying it is. Playing on anything higher than easy greatly improves the AI experience, and makes the game a real challenge. The bumper car-style gameplay goes away once you ramp up the difficulty.

The graphics are that of a very high end mobile game, and it shows that it is actually a mobile game. The controls are actually a very good port of touch based controls, from the mobile game. It includes all the DLC mobile maps that you originally had to shell out money for, and does so in style. It's a true proper mobile to PC port, removing all the bad bits of mobile ports and keeping the good. The good being very fun 15 minutes at a time game sessions.

Racing wise, the handling can get a little sloppy on a few maps. There are some bumps that just shouldn't exist, and can cause you to fly off the map. However some might say those are simply skill challenges and you need to slow down. Outside of getting air handling is very tight and well done. You don't drive on ice like in GTA, instead you drive tight turns when you mean to, and wide turns when you mean to. It's very easy to control, probably due to it's extremely sloppy control background on mobile games. Seriously, touch racing is impossible.

There is a variety of maps, and quite a lot of cars. A truly endless amount if you include the workshop. There is also a map editor for you to make maps for your friends, or to upload to the workshop.

Which leads to the next thing... Multiplayer. It's very well implemented and not at all laggy. It's very fun to race and bash you're buddies, just like in any other game.


I picked the game up on a whim of liking cute RC racers, and I don't regret it one bit. If you're the same, go ahead and grab it. If you're looking for a captivating, serious racer, look elsewhere.

This is a cute little racer, reminiscent of the Amiga racer All Terrain Racing, that will hit both your pleasure and frustration buttons. The two major frustrating elements are the collisions that almost always favour the AI racers, and also the lack of progress syncing in between races. You'd better quit and restart on your own every few races to save your races and your money, because a game or a system crash will obliterate any progress from that session.

As for the game itself, it is a satisfying combination of good driving, tactics, and upgrades that will see you to the finish line. You'll need more than just a couple of afternoons to make it to the end, and every time you make it past that one difficult course, it feels just great. A worthwhile purchase if you like small, classic racers.

A nice Funracer with workshop support and "online" multiplayer.
But only a few players online. Most of the times the servers a empty.
But shortwhile a good singleplay Game.
Large number of vehicles with multiple tuning options.
Few basic routes in single player mode.
Routes are mirrored or the camera angle changes to the feeling to convey it would be other routes.
Through the editor it is possible to create your own routes and upload them to the workshop.

The best way to hit in Deal. Then it offers good value for money.

If you can ignore the ease in which your little mini motor racing car can be spun out by competitors (and the massive clusters that this causes), and if you can get over the questional physics in a(n admittedly) minority of maps, then this game is a fantastic racer.

If you grab it while it's on sale for about $2.50, then the game is a fantastic addition to a gaming library.
