About This Game

A.I.M. Racing welcomes you to the planet Polygon-4, where deadly vehicles of the distant future compete, swishing planet’s dusty atmosphere at a tremendous pace. Years ago humans along with the Arlings used Polygon-4 for a number of military experiments, but later left the test complex. However, the intelligent machines, AIMs, continue to fulfill objectives they are programmed for: further evolution and self-perfection.

Horrible mess of a game with cheating AI, clanky controls and bad graphics straight out of 1999, hell, but Wipeout 3 had better visuals than this. This game is not fun, not fun at all. I have more fun doing an epilation on my ♥♥♥, than playing it.

Pros and cons of different gliders are only applicable to you, that means that, if you are controlling a big ♥♥♥ glider with minimum speed, the AI who controls the same glider will somehow have way more speed.

Power up pickups are only placed on the side of the tracks which means that when you pick them up, you unavoidably lose speed. Mario Kart and Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing are the greatest examples of how power ups should be placed in an arcade racing game.

This game is not challenging or hardcore, it's just unfair. To win the championship, you gotta have 50% skill and 50% luck. You gotta race on the same track at least 30 times with 30 different gliders to finally understand how to win.

If you are into this kind of racing games and you like futuristic glider space style stuff, buy a PS3 and play Wipeout HD instead, it worth it. Buying A.I.M. Racing even on sale and torturing yourself playing it, doesn't.

I REALLY like this one. Its more than a hover space craft race thing. Which of course it is. But the added weapon elements, and extras make it quite intense if you really want to go full on. Race, crash into, blow up and destroy etc opponents and aim to win as well. Great! The graphics are pretty good, should get good results even with a low end graphics card.

This game really has the feel of star wars pod racing. You can pick up power-ups that can affect the gameplay of the match. It can get a little frustrating in the begging to drive each vehicle. The graphics are alright and fun to look at. The opponents can be very stupid at times and run into the walls. The game is a good arcade racer with potential to be alot of fun. I would recommend this game to any racer that likes having power-ups to blow the competition away. Its a good game but can be improved.

The 1C Racing collection obviously didn’t impress others either as 'Streets of Moscow' has now been dropped from steam making the collection unavailable! But as part of my ongoing torture of playing through these games ‘A.I.M. Racing’ is really not much better… Although it’s one of the strongest racing games 1C has published, unfortunately the game really isn’t very enjoyable! I was actually quite invested in the idea of racing these futuristic aerodynamic vehicles with “unique glider dynamics”… But it appears that this description was code for handles like any other average car racing game (if not slightly worse)! To be honest part of me expected to be able to control the height of the vehicle even if only to a slight degree... The game for the most part feels quite lifeless and bland and honestly I think you can find substantially better kart-esque racing games on Steam, if that’s what you’re looking for!
