Was cleaning out my installs and remembered this bad boy. It's terrible, period. It's not even funny in a "haha this is so terrible" kind of way. No, it's horrendous. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Thought it would be something silly as wacky racers, but nope it's just a bad Flash game. The game has blur all the time, it's very simplistic. Not worth the price at all.

Only good thing I can say is that the music made me laugh, but even that is not implemented properly.
Avoid this one.

Bought this game for 2 USD for sherry and giggles, not expecting anything. But somehow, i was still disapointed by it

If this game was a "early access" games, i would probably forgive it for its multitude of sins. But apparently THIS IS THE FULL GAME. The full game has only a campaign mode that plays kind of like the game "Simpsons Hit and Run" if you took out EVERYTHING that made that game charming. All it is, is a "do various flavors of a driving mission, dont collect X, collect Y" and attempt to keep the brain damage at bay.

After beating a mission you are rewarded with a handfull of currency, in which you can buy all of 2 or 3 things TOTAL. You can upgrade your (stat-less) tractor with "quicker engine" and "better brakes" OR you can drop ungodly large amounts of moeny and get a new (still stat-less) tractor.

The power-ups are mostly "power downs" as you can get spun out (oil can), reverse your steering controls (whiskey/moonshine bottle) OR can speed you up with what is probably supposed to feel like turbo (a barrel).

Also, the "hillbilly rock" soundtrack gets very old, VERY quick

Once you grow sick of the campaign (which will happen VERY quickly) you are left with nothing else to do except exit the game and try to come to terms with wasting 2 bucks on such a game that would only be suitable as a FLASH game.


TL:DR
Do you like racing games? If so, dont buy this game as you can go to a flash game site and get much more enjoyment out of a free game.

If not, really really do not buy this game

I knew I'd be disappointed but I wasn't ready for the amount of disappointment. This game blew me away with how bad it is, from the "gameplay" to the absolutely horrible howling dog banjo music. You'd wish you have died not experiencing this, I know I do.

No combination of changing the settings in the launcher could get the game to actually show up, it just becomes an unusable item on my taskbar marked "RedRev (Not Responding)" every time until I force-kill the process.

This is still less painful than I expected the game to be, so may as well make it a 2/5 review.

This game shouldn't exist. It really shouldn't. It should at least be renamed Big Rigs 2.

It's like trying to Jerk off a Castrated Dog.
He won't thank you for it, and all you'll get is wrist exercise.

I am fairly certain this is the worst game I have ever played. Often even bad games may be worth a low price, but this game is not worth a single penny or moment of your time. It fails on every level, from technical issues to braindead gameplay. Avoid at all costs.

Let's start at the beginning, the launcher. The highest the resolution can go is 720p. This can be forgiven if the game is good enough or it's heavily dependent on 2D art (such as visual novels), but no such excuses exist for this game. And as far as I can tell no option for a windowed mode either, so I hope you like stretching. And even with all the options maxed out here the screenshots do not begin to describe how terrible this game looks in motion.

Moving on to the game itself, the UI is hideous and clunky. Once you've managed to get past that, you are stuck with the longest loading screen I can recall in anything short of a Source game in many years (and the art you're stuck looking at doesn't help pass the time). Then you are in the "game." Unlike virtually every other single racing game from a behind-the-car perspective, you control both movement and acceleration with the left stick of your controller. I suspect this was done to lazily match the keyboard control scheme, rather than taking consideration for what plays well (a concern you will see equally ignored throughout the rest of the game). The driving itself is incredibly lifeless, from the physics to the track design. Other tractors will come towards you and slow you down if you hit them. You get points for doing so, but it doesn't seem worth it considering how much they get in your way. If only you could plow through them and watch tractor and driver alike careen through the air, perhaps that would have been one sole redeeming factor for this game. There are also anti-power-ups (why would you do this?) in abundance in this game. That floating thing in the middle of the road that looks like it'll be fun? It apparently makes you so drunk your controls lock up for around 15 seconds, leaving you with nothing to do as you stare at a wall. Between the time it took to figure out the travesty of the controls and discovering which of the power-ups actually help you (only one), I failed the mission. Blissfully though, the game gives you the option to quit to desktop right then and there. That is the best design choice the developers made in this whole trainwreck of a game.

In short, do not buy this game. Do not even redeem the key if you buy it from a bundle, like I did, hoping for a quick joyride. Do not let this game anywhere near your computer. It is, frankly, less playable than Bad Rats. If you do end up with a key, give it to someone you don't like or something. Maybe prank a friend with it. Do not play it.

Becomes an unusabe (not responding) taskbar item on load.
No amount of altering settings can change this.

This game is so much better than any other "video game" that I refuse to identify other games as video games.

God bless America, and God bless Redneck Racers.

Some of the others said the experience would be dreadful. I bought it anyway - and guess what! I disagree.
Mainly because I failed to get the game running at all I suppose. It'd attempt to create a game window and immidiately exit with error code 53. No logs, no nothing. Just bye.

Don't buy this. Buy another team fortress hat or something if you want to waste your money, but don't buy the game.

This is a game I didn't know I needed until I got it. My life would have been emptier without hillbilly rock punctuated by chicken squawks and that can-o-beans powerup which does exactly what you think it does. The tractor and driver selection screen is just where the awesomeness starts.

Let's be honest here, "Dukes of Hazzard" had better racing, and that was on the original Playstation, but Redneck Racing with its alcohol-fueled psychedelic vibe is a different can of beans altogether (see what I did there?).

But the music, ah -- you get a folder full of .ogg files, over 50 minutes by Rattlesnake Deer, Sickboys and Lowmen, The Jimmy Hofer Band, and Someleft -- this cowpunk music is already worth the 1.99 I spent. The psychedelic redneck tractor racing is just a bonus at this point.

The title on the trailer is Think I'll get Drunk by Rattlesnake Deer, not necessarily the best piece of the bunch, but the one that sounds most redneck - the other bands tend to more electric guitars and faster rhythms.
