English Review
This Demo game ThunderWheels is nothing much. Graphics weak car look weak, almost not even see them on the screen and even the view from the mountain. I want to change the car or connect to the server, so it is not. Handling of the car is completely zero and racing is boring. Only what I like is that there a wide selection of tracks.
My rating 1/10.

Slovak Review
Táto Demo hra ThunderWheels je nič moc. Grafika slabá, vzhľad áut slabé, takmer ich ani nevidím na obrazovke a ešte pohĺad z hora. Chcem si zmeniť auto alebo pripojiť sa na server, tak to nejde. Ovládateľnosť áut je úplne nulová a pretekanie je nudné. Jedine čo sa mi páči je, že tam široký výber z tratí.
Moje hodnotenie 1/10.

I realize it's just a demo but not fun. Even though the game has an arcade presentation the driving is extremely unforgiving, made worse by the lack of controller support. The top down view has the look and clunkiness of a flash game. On my 8-core CPU it was choking when I hit ESC to get the menu.

All the issues:
1) Requires running as administrator (User Account Control window will pop up upon launching).
2) No customizable controls. No gamepad support. Actually, they are customizable. You must EDIT your player from the race drivers list at the Configure Drivers screen.
3) The driver editing screen is buggy, and I can't save any changes, and it gets confused with what input device is selected (gamepad or keyboard). It is a mess.
4) In windowed mode, mouse is locked inside the game.
5) Before-racing menus are controlled using the mouse (actually, controlling the menus with the keyboard is possible, but very difficult), while the in-racing menu is controlled using the keyboard only.
6) The main menu music is an 8-second loop.
7) Camera is reset to bird-eye's view on each race.
8) The car can get out of the view in the bird-eye camera.
9) The car is hardly controllable. It just slips all the time. It is a mess.
10) The 3rd track is way more enjoyable and easier to race than the first two. Well, the easier tracks should come earlier, shouldn't they?
11) The game freezes for 3 seconds whenever I press Esc to open the in-racing menu.
12) In-racing text is low quality and pixelated.
13) Although a track editor is advertised, I couldn't find it in game.

Good effort, lacks a huge amount of polish. If you are a gamer wondering if you should spend your time downloading and playing this: just don't.

I think it will be a good game when the actual game is released(If it ever does) but right now, it is ok but not the greatest. I rate this game about 6/10. So as it is a free demo, you can try it out for free. Also it runs so well.

I understand that this is a Demo of a game that I guess is still in a very early stage of development, but, if it doesn't change a lot until it is finished, then this game is not worth whatever it's price is going to be.
