I am not a motor head, nor do I normally play racing games of any sort, but I had a really good time when playing Little Racers. A top down view gives you a good over view of the course a head of you, allowing you time to plan out your corners.

Single player mode consists of a career mode, where you start out with a very basic car, and you work your way up the ranks while earning enough money to buy yourself one of the super cars. You can also spend the money you earn from winning races to upgrade your car with all the normal stuff such as better grip or a bigger nitros tank.

This is a very watered down version of a racing game, but I still enjoyed it very much. One that you could probably enjoy playing alot while sitting on the couch in the front room as it works very well with the controller.

This is worth your time even if you aren't a fan of racing games like me.

This is a Racing Game Top-Down Style.

This games also brings me back to the '90 era.
Codemasters released another Micromachines game and this really looks a lot of
the way it plays and looks.
Only big difference is that the game takes place at some street racing
underground.
More than 55 cars to drive with in 6 difference tears.

The controls a really need to get used to.
Because of the feeling how the cars steers en how the point of view is.
There are some difference between cars only you will not notice it a lot.

The game offers you have different game possibilities.
You have Single Race, Career, Time Trail, Free Roaming and Multiplayer.
Career mode is really the most fun to play and race over 190 events on 60
different tracks.
You think you are fast you must try the Time Trail Mode.
Free Reaming is very special for a game like this and it's a really fun and good
addon to this games and 2 Huge cities to drive on
Multiplayer can be used offline and online to play with friends experience for up to 12 players.

Graphically the game looks pretty good.
And even weather conditions to participate in this game.
This gives the game new difficulty rating.
Game has some also have some good background music.

In short it's a very solid game that can be a little addictive to play.
I really enjoy this game... and only for 5.99 retail ?
So it's possible to buy fun and good game only if you ask me they are very rare.

It's a good game is you like top-down racing games.
I will give it a 7/10.

I play this game pretty much everyday. I can not reccomend this game enough if you are a racing fan. They have time trials for every track. Which gives you something to shoot for after have all of the regular game play done. I call it regular game play where you have to race each class to earn money to buy new cars and buy upgrades.

Its a really nice game of cars, in the line of Micromachines or similar games. The graphics, while not really complex, have some interesting details like wather effects or reflections. The gameplay is adictive a lot. Sumarizing, it's really funny and well done :)

It's not a bad game for what it is, gameplay is simple and addictive, and the visuals are.... Nice? Still, there are some flaws that I will proceed to list:

- Sometimes, the HUD actually gets in the way, your car loves hiding behind it in some parts of certain tracks, which can be pretty damn annoying.

- The music is not really that bad, but it's pretty bland, hit or miss. I personally use my own playlist.

- The game is randomized when it comes to tracks and even racers you will be going against. It's not that bad, but sometimes, the races are way too easy when you have 3 other cars in a long, long race. That's not too bad, but then....

- ....Sometimes, it's totally the opposite, and that's when it gets annoying. You are racing against 9 or so other cars in a small ♥♥♥ circuit, which gets you screaming "GET THE ♥♥♥♥ OUT OF MY WAY" more often than you would like to. It's like a ♥♥♥♥ing nascar race.

- The game's got some kind of weird rubber banding. You can actually leave the other racers way behind, they won't catch up with you in 2 seconds most of the time. But each time you cross the finish line, each lap, the AI gets stronger, better, faster, but not harder. If you are struggling to keep up with the other racers BEFORE the second to last lap, you are ♥♥♥♥ed, my friend.

- This is actually pretty rad. Sometimes, the enemy racers get stuck in certain corners of the track, and they will stay there, motionless, until you, or somebody else, is gentle enough to nudge it out of the twilight zone....

-...Of course, this can happen to you, also. You won't get stuck there for a whole lap, but your top speed will get screwed up when you hit A SINGLE PIXEL IN THE WAY! COME ON!

- 10-16 lap races. Just....Avoid these. With the rubber banding AI that gets stronger each lap, you won't finish in first, second, third, or even fourth place unless you are really, really skilled, and also, lucky. It's just a waste of time. Avoid.

- If you are like me, an average driver, you will have lots of trouble staying away from the walls. Which means you will have to pay for repairs. How much? Just like 80% of your race money. Dear god, another grindfest.

All in all, this game isn't terribly bad, but it's not....That good neither. It's just one of those games you play now and then, or in worst case scenario, play once and never touch it again. Judge for yourself, if you dare.

I usually ragequit from driving/racing games. I often do that fast. This game didn't make me quit. I found it fair (unless you change to unfair mode :P) - and that's why I liked it. There are 5 difficulty levels and you can always choose the one that suits you best.

LR Street doesn't stand out from the crowd, but it's solid in every regard. Graphics and music are simple, but they don't deter. Menus are simple, and even though they are simple and easy to navigate and read I didn't like them. I had impression that this part of the game was just rush and never finished, but that's my only complain. There is a basic selection of sound and graphical options, but you don't need more. Keys customization as well as joypad support are good. Game controls nice with both peripherals.

Driving mechanics... well, it's present and I just learned it to beat AI in career. Just learn and you should not have problems winning the races. Speaking of modes there are a few of them: career, time trial/lap record , daily challenge, multiplayer and freeroam. Nice, that's quite rich. AI/Bots - their difficulty ramps up as you change car classes - they are easiest in E class and of course much more difficult in A class. Car customization is present and is decent. You can improve your car's performance (better nitro, brakes, control etc etc), you can choose patterns and paint too. You don't have freedom in this regard, but what game offers is enough. As you change classes you can buy better cars. Every class has a few specific cars you can buy/improve and use for races. Track selection is decent - you won't be owerwhelmed, but you won't have to drive 5 same tracks till you throw up. There are 5 types of camera setting in this game. It's great, as you can choose the best or simply the one you like most.
AI/Bots are good. It is possible to change their number between 1 and 11. They can annoy you at times, but this was the first game I didn't want to bash developer for unfair AI opponents. They get better and they will win, but I never found them unfair. It was always my fault (bad turn, too much speed, bad control over the car). They may block and ram you at time, but again - it was never aggravating as it is other games of this genre.
I was happy with a Ghost Car feature. You can set a certain number of those to use in time trial/lap record races. They will not collide with you, but they will pose a challenge and help you beat records.

You are probably wondering "So much text, so little substance? Why are you recommending this game?". Yeah, it's my fault that I can't pass my enjoyment with this game on you. I would like to, but it's also partially game's fault - it's solid. Nothing less, nothing more. As I said it doesn't stand out, but what it does, it does fun enough for me (a driving games hater) to tell you that I had a blast. I even did 100% achievos and in-game challenges. It was that fun.
Buy it. It's a solid indie racing game.

Little Racers is a great little racer that manages to capture the spirit of those early isometric arcade games. It has plenty of cars and tracks and will keep you going for a long time. Plus it has a good multiplayer mode and lots of daily challenges to complete.

If there is one fault it is that progress can be slow, but having said that the championship mode has a collection of it's own challenges such as winning so many times in a certain car or a certain class. Completing these can make life so much easier :)

You should only play this game if you have friends and good internet. Its a fun racer that I would enjoy but my internet when playing this game is meh. Its pretty much a top down racer like some old arcade games, But over all would play Mario kart over it. 6/10

Addictive, challenging game. Becareful how much you upgrade your car, you can make the mistake i did at first, and class up your car before you are ready. Luckily there is a downgrade feature which i think is very nice, you can downgrade the car to keep it within a certain class or to change how the car is set up.

The graphics are nice, handling physics is a bit odd but fun once you get used to it. I'd say it is both a mix of sim, and arcade. You have to figure out a good rhythm for the corners. How you boost on the straights matters can mean loosing or winning a race. There is no penalty for restarting a race in Career mode that I've noticed which is nice until you learn a track. Some tracks have jumps, and blind corners.

There is a difficulty setting which affects how much credits you win from a race. It is set to default on Intermediate, but even Easiest can be tricky depending on the track and car that you have. What is tricky about Easiest is that you lap slower cpu, and they can get in your way when taking some corners or on tight track sections. This is annoying if you are trying to do a perfect race without any damage.

Controls, and rumble feature are very nicely set up, you can change them if the default setting isn't what you want. I play using a 360 Afterglow controller.

Overall, first impressions say a lot. This is nicely done. I will update this review as i play it more and get indepth into other modes, and multiplayer.

At first when I saw this game I was reminded Super Off Road or RC Pro Am (on NES) and was hoping for something similar. I got it, and I got a little more.

Definitely what is shown on the trailer is the basis of what this game is. It's a top down sort of racer with dynamic camera angles that definitely make up the game. The first camera angle reminds me somewhat of Super Off Road,RC Pro Am, or Sim City 3 when you take control of vehicles. Not a bad angle, and a good one for nostalgic feel. However, some problems persist with views as you'll see buildings get in your way. None the less an outline of your car is shown but sometimes it is difficult to see. Which brings me to the next camera angle which is dynamic and shows you more of the track ahead of you. The variety of camera angles adds depth to the game. One would think of course seeing your player would be of utmost importance. It is but it adds to the game play. The driving itself is relatively simple and reminds me of literally having a toy car between my fingers (which is not a bad thing). For a grown man I like the game for the grown-up feel it gives but I like it at the same time sort of bringing me back in time when games were simpler (such as Pro Am or Off Road). The driving handles great and the ability to see if you beat your best track time is made even easier. Nitro is also a big factor within the game and when to use it. I find even playing at medium difficulty you may come in first a lot, but there will be some races where it will feel sort of inconsistent and you'll find yourself having a hard time catching up to first. Damage is sort of negligible but I'm only on class D and as the cars get faster more damage may occur. Damage of course has to be paid after each race. After completing races there are achievements such as completing every course on a certain racing level. There are credits rewarded in career mode after racing which enables cars to be upgraded or new ones to be bought. There is even a free roam mode to choose from! That's pretty sweet!

The visuals are suitable to this game, and maybe in a few places could have been better. I like the fact that toy cars were used. Cars have a custom paint option. It's almost like having my micro machine toy car the color I've always wanted it. It's not need for speed detail but it's enough detail to keep the game cool.

The sounds are decent, nothing too amazing but nothing short of good. When the guy says final lap or new best time it sort of sounds off. Either than that no complaints.

I like this game and would like to see a DLC or something added. Maybe add weapons in the game and make it like mario kart? Why not a demolition mode? I'd suggest more things but I'm not getting paid here for them. (Cop chases anyone)?

This is a good game... I like this game so obviously it will get a good rating. I bought it on sale and if it suits you I'd recommend buying it. Sucks that it isn't local co-op but I can see why (would be hard seeing each car). Food for thought though! There is a bit of a grind with career mode when it comes to getting new cars but the races are short and enjoyable enough that you won't notice, until you start getting to later classes where prices are high. The bonus of it is that some races have a pretty big pay-out. If you don't care for some achievement or potential card opportunity then just keep on going to the horse races.

Indie Rating : 7.6/10. Could have been easily an 8 if more game modes were added.

Also the multiplayer seems to be somewhat alive at certain times. Either than that it can be pretty quiet. Buy a four pack?

With Death Rally (the original developed by Remedy I mean, not the remake you can get on Steam) being free and working on any modern Windows version, you would think that making a game like this would be as easy as downloading it, and then playing it a whole lot until you get what is that made this genre great.

What you get instead is games like Little Racers Street, where I can't help but feel like the dev team said, OK we're going to make the game we want eventually, but in the meanwhile we need some cash: so they watched youtube videos of classics while thinking about what they're going to have for dinner that day, and after some time lo and behold they've cobbled together a Cargo science version of the classics.

Superficially, they LOOK more or less the part, but play like crap. Little Racers STREET has a sloppy presentation, it almost looks like it could be a freeware game from a few years ago and to say the music is place-holder is to be generous. But the handling? the handling, I hear you ask? It's vacuous at best, and the career progression is grindy. The only good thing I can say about it is that the AI is not as murderous as Mini Motor Racing EVO (that would be, throw your controller at the screen degree of vicious). And that's about it.

Save yourself a few cents and play Death Rally (the free one by Remedy if you don't mind my repeating). Or Slicks'n'slide. Or ATARI's Super Sprint or Ironman Super Offroad: I can guarantee those are good games and if you don't like them, well it means the genre isn't for you. This? This is just going for the nostalgia angle.

Excellent time filler - becomes repetitive after a while however. Do NOT buy this game if you want a storyline experience, this is purely a race engine and most comparable to Micro Machines - 7/10

Great game if you have 5-10 minutes time and want to have a quick race!

Daily challenges motivate to start at least once - sadly multiplayer is not very crowded :-(

RECOMMENDATION!

A cute little gamepad + sofa game that is easy to pick up when relaxing at the end of the day. Might not last for tens of hours, but I've already got my money's worth.

What can i say, crap graphics, the route was poor. Not impressed, did not get to pick car, I feel that the car colour is very important in gaming, Very boring, unoriginal, music sucked. Bad presentation, starting position of cars inadequate.

Xbox Live Indie Game fans may remember Little Racers STREET from a year or two ago. The popular XBLIG title has now made its way to Steam with a few additions along the way. Little Racers STREET is a top down view arcade style racing game with a single player career mode and online multiplayer for up to twelve players.

The racing action takes place over two ‘cities’ in which the tracks are created by blocking off road junctions to create a route. Think of it like the routes in games such as Need for Speed. This allows around 60 different tracks to race on, double that if you mirror them. The tracks range from short loop style routes to long ‘tour of half the map’ races. The cities are an urban area with scenery such as buildings and train tracks and the second a more open area with mountains and canyons providing the backdrop. To add some variety there are night and dusk lighting as well as rain and snow weather conditions which affect the vehicles handling. The two cities combined with the number of route permutations (around 200) means you won’t get bored of the tracks too soon.

There are 41 vehicles to choose from, split into classes from E, the slowest, to A being the fastest. The classes are decided by four attributes; Power, Turning, Grip and Nitro. These can be upgraded in the garage, and if you upgrade enough you can even have the vehicle go up a class. The range of vehicles is good, from nimble mini’s and cumbersome buses up to super charged beasts, all of which can be painted and decaled. Depending on the type of race, speed is not always the best, as tracks can be very twisty so choosing a vehicle with lower speed and higher grip can make a massive difference.

The career mode starts you with a small amount of money to buy a low class vehicle and get straight into the race. Depending on the race, you can be up against three to eleven other drivers. Credits are earned depending on the outcome and if you find your opponents too easy you can increase the difficulty to earn a larger reward. The AI is very competitive on the harder difficulties and one or two minor mistakes on the track will punish you. As you complete races your leaderboard ranking changes accordingly, it can be a bit of a grind working your way up the leaderboard and vehicle classes, but there is plenty to do.

The multiplayer mode allows you to host, join or search for a race. A number of options are available if you are hosting a game including a choice of public or private games, number of vehicles and the race length. If you wish to, you can host a game and fill it with AI racers and play until some humans join the start of the next race. Surprisingly, you are unable to choose which track or conditions to race on. I haven’t spent any time playing multiplayer against other humans on the PC as the game had not yet been released on Steam, but I spent a lot of hours playing on the XBLIG version and I can assure you it is immense fun.

The career mode will keep you busy for several hours as you progress through the classes. The multiplayer mode is where the lifespan is, get a few friends involved you can easily spend an evening racing against each other and inventing game modes such as ‘cops and robbers’ with differently painted vehicles and decals. If you enjoy racing games and simply want that arcade fun experience then this is a must buy.

Gameplay: 8.5
A lengthy career mode with challenging AI if you increase the difficulty. Vehicle handling is spot on. The multiplayer mode provides many hours of enjoyment.

Graphics: 8.5
Smooth 60FPS graphics which look nice, but often missed as you are tearing around the track.

Sound: 7
A mix of music tracks which sound decent. Sound effects are sparse as expected in a racing game but they do the job.

Final Score: 8.5
