It pains me to say this but I'm not going to recommend Mini Motor Racing EVO basically down to the game having really bad physics. Most of my play time was spent racing with a friend in 1v1 races which were generally decided by how the physics treated the player. In some occasions a vehicle could get flipped on its side seemingly randomly and on a lot of occasions an agressive side-swipe at my opponent would leave me in a worse off situation than him! There seemed to be no realism or accuracy in the physics therefore removing any type of skill factor in the driving and racing.

Now the game looks really nice and fun. It almost seems criminal to me to make a top-down racing game appear so nice and colorful to look at but then get let down by such a major game-breaking factor!

There's a large array of cars to choose from and an even more impressive track selection with day and night variants. I learned today that the game also has Steam Workshop for creating and sharing your own track designs!!

You have an option of two different systems to control your vehicle. The first type is the more conventional method of rotate/steer the car clockwise/anti-clockwise and the second type is to push in the direction you want to travel. Now the second method of pusing in the desired direction of travel sounds awful to me but I actually found it a more efficient way to play this game. You still have to accelerate and brake the same with both methods. It's worth testing them both out with an open mind and seeing which works best for you.

There is no local co-op feature but the online multiplayer works fine. I'm not sure about the playerbase but I managed to find my steam friend to play with without any problems and our games ran smoothly.

So many positive points about this game let down by a lack of fine-tuning in the physics. The game boasts "cross-platform multiplayer" so possibly the physics were acceptable on a mobile platform. I think on the PC platform we expect a bit more from our game.

If you can put up with the clunky physics and have a friend or three to play with then you could have some fun for sure. For me though, it removed almost all competiveness and thus removed the fun and motivation to race further.

This game feels a lot like RC Pro-AM from the NES only with nowadays visual and the same retro gameplay as the 80s. The game is very charming aesthetically and it gives it a style on it's own. The tracks, cars and music are varied.
I definitely recommend Mini Motor Racing EVO if you're searching for that retro nostalgia.
Solid arcade game.

Verdict: 8.5/10

I really like this game, it's a very interesting take on the mini car racer, it's fun to play for a few hours straight and it has quite the skill ceiling to master.

- Mouse controls work incredibly
- It has a really wide variety of maps and cars
- It has nice music
- It has nice graphics

- Keyboard controls are bad
- Some maps have clipping issues
- AI performance is all over the place, there's maps where you'll have another car on your tail the whole race and others you'll lap the second place.
- Multiplayer is dead
- Each race has a fixed camera angle, it'll play a great deal on how well you can see the map's complicated part of the track.
- Power ups are random, they can appear anywhere on the map and their timeout is not tied to the race start
- When going uphill the mouse arrow will clip into the ground

It has more cons and pros, but it's worth it.
