Split/Second gets review blow-out, EG lands it with 8

Tuesday, 18th May 2010 17:38 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Split/Second’s balls-to-the-walls, mentally insane. At least that’s the impression from the reviews going out on the Black Rock/Disney racer. Get rounded-up after the break, and find out if this one’s for you.

Eurogamer’s gone live with an eight, with everyone else also following with pretty similar scores.

Full list is below.

If you have any links to add, do so below.

Split/Second releases today in the US, and on Friday in the UK for 360, PC and PS3 – with a 3Gb HDD install, not 7Gb .

A demo’s now available on Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network.

    Can’t wait for the Digital Foundry face-off.
    Wasn’t sure about this game, but the speed seems to be much faster than in the demo and that was my major concern

    EDGE 8/10 by the way…

    EuroGamer Germany and Gamespot absolutely right: another mediocre racing game nothing more

    @Erthazus, Agreed. I’m consistently amazed when people consider 8 a “low score”.

    Really looking forward to this game.

    I’ve play the game yesterday. Definately not that nice. I’ll rate it the most 7/10 and it is expensive :(

    Good to see it doing well, it seems pretty solid. Not sure whether I’ll buy it, though – racing games generally aren’t my thing unless they’re Burnout.

    @Blerk – I agree, but having played the ps3 demo constantly for the last week (at the expense of all the other games I was supposed to be finishing before this came out) I’d say it’s Burnout good. It reminds me of Burnout/Burnout 2 a lot…

  25. Blerk

    My main concern is that they’re saying it’s quite short. Burnout games tend to keep me going for months, dipping in and out whenever I fancy a quick blast. Only having 12 tracks and a couple of extra modes doesn’t sound like it warrants full price.

    I love this from the kotaku review :

    “A copy of the game was given to us by the publisher for reviewing purposes. Played through nine episodes and multiple multiplayer matches on Xbox 360.”

    And no score :) *All* reviews should do this.

    @Blerk wait til it’s 20 quid for you then I guess…

    #27 5 years ago
  28. Blerk

    Yeah, I could well be tempted into a bargain bin purchase – especially seeing as there’s no new Burnout on the horizon.

    @28 I guess it depends what Criterion’s NFS turns out like. I see one of their registered domain names was NFS – Takedown (as previously discussed).

    We’ll find out at E3…

    I just watched GT review and the game looks sweet.
