Frustrating with hints of fun

The bleep construction zone! Am I right? Anyone who's tried to complete this game know what I'm talking about. Overall this game is fun, and if you were playing with all humans it would be even more fun. But playing against the AI is frustrating because the AI doesn't get stuck in the geometry or along a wall. These problems get worse as you go up to 150cc because the faster you go the less time you have to correct, and with how squirrelly some of these bikes are it's easy to get off course. The worst place was easily going up one or two tubes at the construction zone. If you didn't hit that perfect, you were in for a hurtful delay.

As other reviewers have said, this game is only $2 at Gamestop. Hell it was only $5 to begin with so you should have never expected much. You'll get what you pay for, and if you are motivated this is the easiest of the three Burger King games to earn you a badge here at GTN.

  • I have to admit, I only played this game because I knew it was quick points. That means I had no expectations going in, so they were neither met nor was I disappointed (I mean I went in for the point, I got the points). That said, the game was not good, and I would not play this late at night if you are sleepy. The entire game consists of you...

  • I actually really liked this game. Not enough to rate it higher than it should be, but I enjoyed the art style and traversal. In a way it reminded me of like old Castlevania 2D games minus the action bits. I was keeping a map of the game in my head, remembering how to get from area to area, and there were only a few spots where I was completely lost and didn't know...

  • I usually rant about these 'artsy' experiences, however, this game actually delivers a unique experience. It is a really short game, but I honestly can't think of another game with similar mechanics. You play a young blind girl and the world around you is drawn in based on sound alone. So as you navigate around the world (the story is you chasing down a stray cat you...

  • You know what I hate? Crap games we all are supposed to pretend we like because they are artsy and has a deep message. I watched an interview with one of the developers talking about the control scheme and how it's "..like tying your shoes, both hands work in concert without you having to concentrate on it. That's the feeling we were trying to create." No. No. No. The...

  • I know this game is very very highly rated, and even I'm giving it a four outta of five stars. It's very well made, and has some great touches like replaying levels in collectible mode that others in the genre should copy. However, this was not for me, and I'm going to tell you why, but there will be spoilers so if you don't want to risk it, move on. ...
