Do you have what it takes to Survive?
Death Track: Resurrection is a racing/action title that takes players into a post-apocalyptic, not-too-distant future where traditional sports have been replaced by far more violent entertainment. The main event, The Survival Race, is a deadly combat racing tournament that draws the world's best drivers to compete in spectacular road battles with powerful, weapons-laden hot rods. Gamers will drive, battle and try to survive in races that take place in twisted future versions of the planet's biggest cities.
Features:
  • Combat racing across post apocalyptic versions of 10 major cities: Bangkok, Vatican City, London, Moscow, New York, Paris, Prague, San Diego, Istanbul and Tokyo.

Fun if it wasn't so Frustrating
*
CONS
  1. 1st track is too long
    (the first race shouldn't take 12 minutes to complete)
  2. rear camera wouldn't work for me**
  3. all tracks except ONE are locked until you complete the 1st tournament race
  4. IF you pass an opponent, then they can shoot you up all day and there's not much you can do about it
    (except for brake, die, use your nitro, or lay mines & the last 2 only save you in limited situations)
  5. difficulty isn't balanced
    (there is a difference between hard AI and lazy programming. I can barely tell a difference betwen Normal and Easy. The highest I can get ON THE FIRST RACE easy is 8th place out of 10; it's like they didn't playtest the game at all)
  6. enemies have unlimited respawn
    (so even if you destroy them, they just come back. WHY!?)
  7. Ammo capacity is too low IMO
    (5 mines, 8 missles, and 80 machine gun)

    PROS
    1. explosions
    2. funny voice overs -other drivers' faces pop up on the HUD (CarmaGeddon style) when you do certain things & sometimes they make you laugh (in a 'WTF?' kind of way)
    3. aim with your mouse & shoot -I found the 'skill-shot' aiming to be more fun & engaging than a fixed target in the middle of the screen (using keyboard & mouse, that is)

    I'll just leave it at that. Hopefully you'll find this one of the more informational 'reviews' of this game.

    TL;DR= The truth is: the game has/had a lot of potential, but unfortunately the game seems to fight you every step of the way, keeping you from having fun for too long. In fact it's making me quit before I even beat the first level.
    For $0.99 it MAY be worth it to you if you really like (unfairly) challenging racers, but IMO it's not worth your time.


    -------------------
    * NOTE: this entire review is based off my experience playing the game in 'modern mode.' There is also a 'classic mode' which features 1 life per vehicle (instead of infinite) and has 2 laps (instead of 3).
    **If someone else tells me otherwise, I'll change that part of the review.

Death Track may be one of the best racing games that 1C has published, but unfortunately it’s still a fairly poor game... For initially being released in Russia in 2008 (and a year later in Europe and America) it’s safe to say the game’s textures and overall appearance looks much more fitted to 2004… So it really doesn’t look that great… As for the driving elements I have seen worse, but the handling of vehicles is very average and the weapons are not that satisfying to use… One problem I do have is when you re-spawn mid race they make it so you can’t use your weapons for a short while, but when everyone behind you is blasting the holy cheese out of you or crashing into you before you have even fully respawned it seems a little unfair to say the least! Overall though, you can safely pass on this game!

I must have gotten this game in a bundle at some point in the past because I do not know where it came from. That thought alone makes me feel better about owning it. This game is crap. No, it's CRAAAAAAAAAP. It started showing that trait as soon as it started. It seemed to be obsessed with the "B" button on my XBOX controller. It is used to confirm an action rather than cancel it. Okay. Anyway, the game itself is just ugly. BROWN and ugly. You are racing. I guess. And shooting at the other drivers. I guess. Navigating the brown roads that are silhouetted by brown buildings and brown sky is a bit tricky and since you are given no hints as to what the controls are, you will have to look them up. Awesome. An announcer seems to be shouting out nonsensical remarks about whatever it is you are doing. "Yeah!" "Way to go!" "Snatch!" WTH? I was seriously about to quit when the race finished. I did it so you won't have to. Steer clear of this. Get it? Steer? Oh well...

It's pretty bad when the default xbox 360 controller controls are up + down = left and right and left + right on the other stick is accelerate and brake. Although it was funny playing the game with the controller turned 90 degrees.

EDIT: Typo and "helpful review. for anyone wondering, you CAN REBIND the buttons. See thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/7840/discussions/0/846959179179239666/" Thank you Mr. Red. For me it was just easier to play something else :P

The game has too many technical issues and not enough real challenge or polish. As someone who loves combat racing games, I wish I could say otherwise.
