REKT! High Octane Stunts On Its Way To Steam

After conquering the hearts of over 160 000 players on the Nintendo Switch, REKT! High Octane Stunts is now on its way to Steam as well. For those not familiar with the game, it’s an action-packed driving game that draws inspiration from classics such as Rush and the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series. It challenges players to master challenging tricks, such as backflips, drifts, and spins to become an ultimate stunter. All of this is wrapped up in beautiful retro neon graphics

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is a more pure arcade experience compared to some of the story-heavy entries in the series. Being able to pick which side of the law you want to play for each race also adds some longevity to the game. Thanks to the involvement of Criterion it feels closer to Burnout than Need for Speed at times, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. With a larger roster of exotic cars and some scenic locations to put them through their paces, there’s plenty of fun to be had with Hot Pursuit.

Gameplay: Pure petal to the metal racing in exotic cars.

Graphics: Still looks good, especially at higher resolutions.

Sound: Features a nice licensed soundtrack and good sound effects

WRC 9 FIA World Rally Championship

WRC 9 FIA World Rally Championship

WRC 9 retains everything that made WRC 8 such a joy to play but also tightens a few things under the hood. It comes with the welcome inclusion of three new countries as well as new features, such as the Clubs mode to extend the longevity of the game. Throw in a great selection of cars and the promise of some great post-launch content and you are looking at a game that should not be missed if you are a rally fan.

Gameplay: Tough to master, but addictive to play.

Graphics: The cars and roads look incredible.

Sound: Very authentic sounding engine noises and effects

FAST & FURIOUS CROSSROADS

FAST & FURIOUS CROSSROADS

Fast & Furious Crossroads had plenty of potential but somehow manages to squander all of it. Despite some over the top scenarios the game offers very little challenge and the whole thing can be completed in one session. The multiplayer also appears to be dead on arrival, which means there is nothing to return to after completing the short campaign. Considering the success and popularity of the movie franchise it’s baffling to see how poorly the license was handled for this game.

Gameplay: Short, easy, and full of baffling design choices.

Graphics: The cars look fine, but everything else has a very low budget look and feel.

Sound: Considering the involvement of some of the big names from the movies we expected a lot better

WRC 9 Will Feature Rally Japan

WRC 9 Will Feature Rally Japan

The launch of WRC 9 is looming large on the horizon, which means plenty of new and exciting reveals about what fans can expect. The latest gameplay trailer released by NACON introduced Rally Japan, which is a brand new rally that will feature in the game. With narrow asphalt roads and aggressive corners, it is going to require some serious driving skills to overcome

Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages

Although the key to success in Rock of Ages is often speed instead of strategy, it is still an interesting mix of genres that is a lot of fun to play. The campaign mode is very funny, but also very short and easy, so you’ll want to play with friends to get the most out of this game. The tower defense elements are a bit underutilized using a giant boulder to crush everything in your path is so much fun that it doesn’t really matter.

Gameplay: Very entertaining, but not as much strategic depth as you might think.

Graphics: The art style is very unique and funny.

Sound: Very juvenile, but once again it’s hard not to smile while playing
