Fast & Furious Showdown does exactly what the title says; it makes one quickly furious.

Showdown is a terrible game with PS2-like visual quality and the gameplay itself is even worse.
The game consists of 10 chapters; each chapter has at least 1 event, but the later ones might have 4 or 5.

F&F Showdown isn't all about racing, though. Well, technically, it is, but isn't just not about finishing laps. There's some variety in it (killing enemies and carjacking, for example), which fit the movies if you think about it but the execution is terrible and is exactly what you would expect from a mobile game just a few years ago. It's very unpolished.

The AI is either incredibly stupid or 'smart'. There's no inbetween. Checkpoints are very rare and if you do have to restart there's no way to skip the ridiculous intros.

The voice acting is pretty good and the character models do look like the characters from the movies (in a way) but it's not enough to make this a good game.

I was glad I finished it in just a couple of hours. Any longer and I would've thrown my controller into the screen. Avoid.

I've found no reason to give this game a positive. This is just another cash-in!
Bad graphics, bad controlls, bad mechanics... Stay away from this title!

2/10

One of the worst games I have had the misfortune of playing. You can't even drive properly without crashing in to a something and remaining stuck on it until the car decides to reset.
With bad mobile kind of graphics, from undynamic enviorments, to terrible controls, to an unusually low draw distance, and a uninspired story. This is a movie tie-in game that fails specatcularly to generate the same spectacle or action from the film itself.

On a scale of 1-10 I'll probably give this one a -356

Fast and furious showdown is based on the blockbuster movie series of the same name. But just like the awesome movies will you want to play the game ? In Fast And Furious Showdown you play as many charecters that appeared in the previous movies like Brian, Tej, Han etc. So how is the game ? The game is absolute garbage and the its one of the worst games i have played period. But first for the story. This takes place over the course of 5 and 6 with a bunch scenes explaing what happend in those movies, but the story is so confusing you will walk away more confused that anything. So how is the gameplay ? Its so horrible its not funny. The cars handle like complete ♥♥♥♥ and its hard to win a race when the car barely goes where you want to. The game is riddled with bugs. In Chapter 4 the game crashed constantly and i had to use a diffrent computer to get past the level. The game also looks like complete garbage. It looks like a very early PS2 game. Overall Fast And Furious Showdown is a mess of a game and im dissapointed that i bought it and i could have saved my money. I give Fast and Furious Showdown a 2/10

It´s like Star Wars Episode 1: A big disapointment.

You´d think that making a Videogame to the Fast & Furious Franchise would be simple: Take some cars, write a dumb Story, have some races and car modification and call it a day, but no, they decided to add Turret-Style Shooting Sections, brain dead AI and probably the worts driving physics since the invention of the wheel itself into the mix. Not even worth it if you get it for free.
