splitsecond

Immediate joy. Hit the link to see video of two laps from Black Rock crash-racer Split/Second, filmed off-screen at today’s EG Expo in Leeds.

Surprise of the show. It’s the most instant fun we’ve had with a car and a games console for a long time.

The game’s out for PC, PS3 and 360 early next year.

    Honestly and truly, this is fucking great. I’m going to play it again.

    Bloody hell.

    Looks sweet. Need to play a demo though, just to get a feel for it.

    Told you so. This ought to shit on Blur from a very great height indeed.

    I’m not all that excited by the video to be honest. Will wait and see what the demo offers.

    It’ll take quite a lot to shake Burnout Paradise’s grip in terms of action packed racing.

    shit on Blur

    I love split/second, but Blur is fantastic in it’s own right.

    Maybe so, but IMHO Blur is an Audi R8 to Split/Second’s Bugatti Veyron. It’s just not in the same league, despite appearing to share similarities at first glance.

    This will be the hardcore racing game to buy.

    Looks great…And I have only just realised we have the fall rush still to come… Early next year.

    When all these new IPs come along to die.

    further proof of how blur is just twisted metal/mario kart/diddy kong racing style pick-up-items+hit-enemies+win-race with another look and slight changes, how NFS:Shift/Forza3/GT5 r all real-as-possible-since-u-can’t-drive-yet games imitating life, and how this game stands out from both subgenres of racing games.

    btw, this game reminds me of Death Race a lot. still though, original as a game nontheless.

    Likewise. I have no idea why people r getting so excited over this video. Except for the very end which looked cool but other than that it was just a normal racer.
    I probably need to play the demo before actually judging it officially though.
