The most realistic simulation racing experience of our time. You can tell just by watching the video how perfect it is.
PROS:
~Some people are ghosts and your car goes right through them, other times you hit someone and they are so tough it stops your car.
~Every time two cars collide, at least one of them flips around in the air a few times. They both are drivable afterwards.
~There are no objectives or things to unlock in this game except to be in first place.
CONS:
~NONE
Only people full of win can enjoy this game. Are you a winner?

Can i just say that this game is a shell of something that could be much bigger and better. The graphics are good, the control is decent, the races are fun, the free roam is fun. You can get out of your car and walk around for god sake, how many racing games can you do that!.
I think some people complaining need to put it in perspective when it comes to the price.

I noticed the reviews and was a bit hesitant to get the game, but I was quickly reassured. It's a very simplistic arcade racer/driving game and I can slosely relate it to Midtown Madness, in that there is a free roam mode with a variety of vehicles. The race modes are easy, a bit to easy, almost as if the AI gives up after about 10 seconds. But if you are like me, and just want a game to drive around like an idiot in, just get it, it's only $2.99. The only thing is that I wish the developer would be more frequent in updating and adding content to the game.

Bad, avoid, worth about 5 mins gameplay.

Terrilbe graphical glitching all over the screen of what should be shadows makes this unplayable for me (win7 GTX970), ocean GFX also not working.
No control customization, no audio options, no video options.

Many vehicles not enterable - only a handful of sports cars work, not the bike, moped, police car or truck, people walk straight through you, you drive through them. Cars don't stop or change course when you walk on road. People look bad, the intermittently gliding dog looks bad. People walk then vanish.

If you walk up the ramp, it says 'hang time' or something like that.

The driving feels horrible.

2/10

Product received for free
Alright, so after playing this game for about an hour I have managed to pretty much unlock the full potential of the game, therefore enough to write a review. This game has hilarious physics with the quirky arcadey feel element which is already an awesome combination, and it has has pretty decent graphics. This game has alot of easter eggs for you to find to keep you playing. This is obviously not like GTA 6 style its a small project game. I say for a small project game it is pretty awesome. The cons would be, after you complete the game it will get repetitive really easily, but it will manage to keep you entertained for quite a bit. (this isnt a con but whatever) This game also runs on Unreal engine 3 which is pretty advanced for a game like this.

In conclusion, i would recommend you buy this game and try it out if you are into any of the things listed above.

Biggest waste of 3.4 gig I understand the price is cheap but the game is just well very unfinished and amateur like

No real options no sound sliders no graphics options

Open world is small most section are blocked off

Game looks very basic

Sounds are poor quality

physics are horrible

predestines look horrible AI very clunky

Sunlight would kill all the worlds vampires with no issues

Only thing right with this game is the price only buy it if your a game collector

Was looking forward to this game, especially after the size of the download and that it needs a fairly high spec PC to run it, as it stutters on my laptop and has a patch for lower end PCs at their website (or it's just bad programming as it doesn't look any better than most cheap games out there). Anyway played it on my main gaming PC.
Not many graphics options to tweak in the menu so onto the game.
The open world part is poor, nothing to do except walk around getting into different cars.
Anyway I gave it another chance and decided to try the racing competition mode. 4 cars racing around a city track following the arrows to help guide your way..or so I thought. The arrows was sending me round in a circle, one minute I was in first place well clear of the other cars the next minute I was in last place half of a lap behind! The problem was the course used the same parts of the track twice so the arrows was sending me in the wrong direction. Resetting the car didnt help, all this seems to do is position you next to the nearest arrow which can be from an earlier part of the track. and don't get me onto the handling of the cars or the collision mechanics of this game..awful. Also it seems the devs have mostly left this game unfinished. Just avoid it

Pros:
- Music is good.
Cons:
- Everything else.

I really liked the idea this game was going for. What I found was probably one of the most credible successors for Big Rigs. There is no car damage, you can pop off some lamp posts and that's it. Only things happening when you crash are either flying around, spinning or knocking back like crazy with no real penalty. Calling controls arcade-like would be extremely generous, but they are just stiff and cars don't really turn around like you want to. Music is kinda good but most of the time its so upbeat it only adds to comedy value of the game.

There are three main modes to speak of. Time trial is what it is, if you are masochistic enough to master controls of this game. Race mode has some CPU opponents you can push around like they have zero weight. There is no multiplayer. Lastly there is free roam where you can explore the map which takes 10 minutes tops, run through pedestrians and use handful cars available to you. There's many kinds of cars parked but you can't use most of them. You also have a jump that doesn't seem to have any purpose other than fooling you to think you can get over some fences and stuff. Nope. Most fun thing I found was driving on the ocean floor. Yeah.

It is sad to see some effort definitely went into this. All in vain. Also worth mentioning is that the engine is very heavy considering what the game looks like. You can tweak it up a little since its straight up Unreal 3. Or should I say you can try. I even ran out of video memory which is legendary. I didn't find a way to rebind controls. I tried because I didn't like the preset.

To sum it all up: don't buy this game if you want a good racing game. If you want to cry or laugh, I think you should actually buy this! It is very cheap and can make you laugh if you are one of those into bad games. Definitely has also educational value for game developers everywhere.

OCEAN CITY RACING REVIEW

First of all
I'd like to start off by saying that this game is very unpolished, and unfinished. Throughout the HOUR of gameplay I put into this game, I fell through the map a total of 6 times. I dont know if this game is abandon-ware left by the developer, or whether it's being worked on for it's faults.

Pro's: The game has a vast majority of cars for you too use in the game.
The driveable car's physics are decent at most.

ANNNNDD NOW THE CON'S there's a lot of them

Con's: The graphics for this game are awful, really poor and shameful to look at.

This game feels like a really crappy mobile port too pc, since there are no graphical options whatsoever. {except for resolution etc.}

The physics for the NON DRIVEABLE CARS are laughable, absolutely terrible.

There is this motion blur that is really annoying that you can't turn off, and even if you move in the slightest, it'll show up and be annoying.

The car's are basically all the same, they just have different looks, but they all accelerate the same, go the same speeds, and some even have the same present sounds for their engine.

The A.I. for the races are absolutely terrible, they drive into walls, and can't steer straight through the track.

Character Modeling for this game is almost Nonexistent because of the same NPC's that walk the street. there are a total of like, 4-5 different NPC's. who are very low res, who for some reason stand at 7 feet tall, (taller than your character, when you leave the car)

THE GAME IS VERY UNPOLISHED. In free-roam, you can drive around in an open world, the map is very small, and kind of linear when you think about it. there are invisible walls, almost everywhere, and sometimes even floors that you can fall through the world with. I've actually fell off the side of the map, Literally walked too the end, and jumped off.

The Free-Roam map is also unfinished, with a bridge that has a construction site on it, too even parts of the map that you can see in the distance with no ground. this map is full of surprises.

Would I recommend this game? NO. It is an Unpolished, Unfinished product of an open world racing game for lowend pc's that doesn't even run well. if you want a good open world racing game, your best bets are Need For Speed, or even Forza Horizon.

3/10 Because I slightly enjoyed uninstalling it.

For the asking price, this game is fun. It's got a great soundtrack, and is a good way of killing half an hour.
An indie team on a shoestring budget have made a fun game. Don't expect anything to rival TDU2 or Forza Horizon.

Do you know Ocean City? Are you down with Ocean City? Are you for real? Really real? Really really...really....really real REAL? Then maybe you should play this game.

It's illegal street racing at its finest as you get behind the wheel of the sexiest imports. We're talking borsches, hamborghinis, ataris, and go-karts. Each of the 10 races features chills, spills, and speeds that'll leave you wearing adult diapers.

You wanna know how extreme it can get? Some of these courses are designed so that racers will get in head-on collisions! Can you believe that? I certainly can't, and I just experienced it firsthand. The races are twisted because everyone, is you, and you, are everybody. Is that deep or what? It's like you've just had this psychotic breakdown and now you're racing cars with your selves. Even if you can't grasp the handling, don't worry, because your competitors are worse drivers than you are.

Ocean City is bad news. I mean yeah it looks alright, but the people are just...wow. I mean I'm just a generic guy with a goatee and cold dead eyes, but at least I don't look like Odo from Deep Space 9. It's like whoever modeled this game thought "we don't need pedestrians that resemble humans, but we have to make sure they're wearing meme t-shirts. That is the most important thing." Either that, or everyone was too focusing on delivering the ultimate racing experience. I'm guessing it was the latter.

....
....Alright I've had enough fun.

Truth is, this isn't a good racing game. It's definitely incomplete, should probably spend several months in the oven, and level 3 needs far more than just its graphics tightened up. I had fun with it though, more fun than I've had with numerous polished videogames. I'm a big fan of open-world driving games like Burnout Paradise, Test Drive Unlimited, and the Crash Time games. Simply being able to goof off and get stupid with expensive-looking automobiles is perpetual entertainment to me.

I'm actually worried that eventually the developers of this game will fix it. It'll be complete, well-designed, and yet, something will be lost. I like making all the weird discoveries, such as finding the burger king ads, pedestrians more disturbing and with creepier animations than the last, and new ways to flip my car. Eventually all that might get taken away, and I'll be sad.

Not a good game, but it's fun, and that's all that matters?
