About This Game

Enter the world of night racing and lowrider competitions. Buy your ride and keep it in a good condition to compete with other pretenders. Earn respect to race with better drivers and advance in the underground community to ultimately become the next racing king of the neighborhood.

I had some hopes when trying this game out, I shouldn't have.
I don't know what is worst about the game, but I'll just point out some facts:
- Specs are pretty high, had to turn some graphic options down on my notebook (i5 with Nvidia 3100 1 Gb and 8 Gb DDR3) to run 100% smooth. I expected good graphics when I saw that, I was wrong
- Graphics look like a 90's game, some light effects and shadows that seem to be more modern, but it still sucks.
- Gameplay seemed promising from the description but it's just awefull. Racing sucks, car control is bad, turning just makes you lose speed, which is low anyways, you can't hit or do anything to your opponent, you will always race in straight lines, car upgrades have sick prices and you get close to no upgrade. you have to bet your money on races on straight lines and you will lose to opponents with weaker cars if you don't upgrade enough. There is no fun in the gameplay, that's the worst part. Play it only if you want to see some low riders cars and if yo uare bored to look at google images (which have a lot better graphics btw).

One of the worst games I ever played

This game is abseloutely dreadful, uninspired and most importantly boring. Your low riding career starts you off drag racing before you even get anywhere near the horrible steering controls, and as many will say, "Don't get mad, get good." it's probably easier just to get a better game. If you're looking for games which let you customise and race your cars in a more fun enviroment there's about a bazillion other games out there.

It is hard to recommend this game someone, only if they are die-hard Low rider or car buff. You get what you pay for though and it does have room for improvement, like having a cruise mode, burnout competition, customization(pin striping, custom trim, murals, custom paint jobs like lace and panel, custom interior, custom character), car shows, car clubs, create events, change keys for controls etc. . . I have to say this is a challenging game, you have to know what you're doing in order to win and trust me you will lose and even when you have no more money the game gives you $250. In the beginning you really have to choose if you want your car to be a "Racer" or a "Hopper" for you can not have both. If you choose to go with a Racer, modify engine, gearbox(A.K.A. Transmission), fuel, tires, suspension and differential, Bet wisely. As for a Hopper buy the best or second best hydro kit and practice like crazy. Also another important thing is to NEVER SELL YOUR CAR, you get jipped and end up with not enough for another one, if so delete your game profile and start over. Trust me you are gonna have to work really hard to get anything out of this game.

On the other hand if you want a game based strictly on lowriders, I would recommend "TheLowriderGame" IT'S FREE ---->www.thelowridergame.com/index.php

in ride em down under u play as mr t and u have to ride as many cars as fast as you can and do tricks from tony hawk snowboarding to rack up enough points before time go away

the game is fun as i like fast cards and i like tony hawks and i like mr te which makes this game very funn for me

the graphics are good and is very well optimise game as it runs well on my dell which is very old??

the only thing i do not like is that sometimes the cars jump which doesnt make sense as cars only turn and go fast not jump??? the developers made big mistake here and for that i detuct 1 point. cars have wheals not legs they CANOT JUMP!

in conclution this game is be very good and look very nice and if u are fan of mr t then u will have many fun but i was hoping for a realism game that DIDNT have silly jumping cars?

8.45/10

D O N O T B U Y T H I S ! ! !

This is an absolutely terrible game. Clearly the makers of it just ripped off GTA, and then bailed on the project, leaving an unifinished game while still trying to sell it as complete. This game is remarkable bad, do not give them money you will only regret it. Words cannot describe how bad this is.

~Sound track is terrible, and is edited incorrectly. It's off time
~Controlls are terrible
~Loading time for something as simple as racing a different person is pathetically long
~The description or "title" of diferent buttons doesn't change when they are supposed to. I.E "Go to Dealership" to go to dealership, and then you click "Go to Dealership" to buy the car. High school level stuff
~"Career" Is a joke. It's a bunch of "quick races." Seriously there is no difference.

This is a HORRIBLE GAME. D O N O T B U Y T H I S

This game is constructed very poorly. While there are some cool customization features, it seems as if that was the only aspect of the game that was devoloped completely. this game kinda blows.

Update- Played more of the game and still say its not worth the money.
Pros: Customizing the cars and racing
Cons
Bad Controls.
Very repetitve
Only career and single player with random cars.
Video quality tends to be average but sometimes the frame rate drops. It could be the computer
Recommendation- Get it if its on a bundle or very cheap like less than 2 dollars.
Early review : It gets repetitive real fast and as well as pretty buggy on video quality. . Will play more to see if i change my mind of the game.

If you like good racing games then do not buy this, seriously. I did and still sometimes race a bit, but this game is just ridiculous. I was thought it would be fun though but it is a poorly developed game. I can´t stand the racing, it is so badly made and the graphics aren´t that great either.. feels like going back in time.

So read more about it/check out movies and screenshots and maybe get it when you want it if it is really really really really cheap. I bought it but am not pleased with this game so I am after writing this going to remove it from my library.

There are a few things to take into account when buying this game,
1: This isn't an indepth racer or car modification game
2: The purchase price reflects what sort of game to expect, (although I was actually pleasantly surprised)
3: If you remember playing Street Rod 1 & 2 for DOS this game is kind of a modern evolution on it but with more hydraulics, bling and much less frustation (remember Mulholland drive races?)

I enjoyed it.

I'm just gonna make a list of the good things and the bad things in the game;

Good things
- Customization

Bad things
- Horrible handling on all cars
- Repetitive races (Drag races most of the times, or just some small track)
- Sometimes impossible opponents (They just have a faster car than you)
- No controller support
- Graphics are not that great
- Only a few car models
- Steam overlay doesn't work ingame
- The songs

Overall, I would recommend this game, if you like to customize old cars into lowriders.
But if you want to buy a game which has good car customization and decent races, you shouldn't buy this game.

The game is 5,99€ at the moment in Steam, personally I think that is a bit too much for this game.
If you get it for like an euro or two, then you should think about getting it.

This game is amazing, but in order to enjoy it you have to know what you're doing. Cause this game is REALLY DETAILED. It involves a lot of modifying to your car. I love the hydraulic competitions and the racing. Im walking out of them with a ton of money to add more to my cars. Yea, a lot of nice cars; they give them different names though. Like the Impala is called a Gazelle and the El Camino is called a Walker. Fun and addicting game overall, get it!

This game is not very good don't buy it. You can't use a controller and you can't redefine the keys. Everything feels cheap and unfinished and nasty. You can see 2 mouse pointers on the screen all the time. For some people the game crashes before they can even get in.

This game is a waste of money, I thought it would have a free-roam feature. Not only that, but gameplay, AND graphics are HORRIBLE. This game was probably made in 2 weeks by 2 coders. Just like E.T.

This game is kind of endearingly awful. It looks like something that came out ten years ago, the UI is terrible, it's full of typos, and it doesn't have much to pass for gameplay. You get to pimp out non-trademark-infringing knock-offs of classic cars (Gazelles and Walkers instead of old school Impalas and El Caminos) and then race them or show off how ridiculous your hydraulics are, except both types of events have very little depth and kind of iffy controls. If you don't win, you will have absolutely no idea why you didn't win or what you should've done differently. The rate you do get money from winning is quite low and makes it feel like it's meant to have microtransactions so you can actually afford to upgrade your car in less than six months of playing. It's also very easy to completely run out of money if you buy the wrong stuff and then lose a couple races, and the amount they give you to get going again if that happens is so low that you might as well just start over.

That said, the keyboard controls for driving are still somehow better than the keyboard vehicle controls for a lot of mainstream games, especially console ports, even though they're kind of meh, which should make a lot of major publishers/developers ashamed of themselves. And I still can't entirely dislike this game, because it has that kind of charm to it that only comes from people trying really hard to make something and completely and utterly failing to succeed.
