From the people that did pure, split second is great.

if you liked pure, i'm sure you will like this. Is arcade style,but that is what you want with this type of game. A lot of action, and great gameplay.

  Based on demo on PSN

I just wanted to add to the opinions below. I played the demo today and I'm not sure about it at the minute. The demo felt a little slow, a little bit sluggish, even though the car in demo looks to be some sort of chevrolet-type sports car. I was hoping for Race Driver Grid handling, arcadey but reasonably realistic, but it felt more like driving a truck to me. Anyway, my point is, try before you buy. Some seem to love it from the demo (see other reviews), I'm not so convinced yet.
That said, graphically awesome - more-so in-game than FMVs, and cool 'weapons' as it were.

I have been playing the ps3 demo for days now and have been having a best time challenge with an online friend,we have been shaving seconds off the times bit by bit and i now have a best time set at 3.37.46 which i got by opening up all 3 route changers and used the shortcuts,which takes some doing but is so rewarding when you achieve it.

Purely based on the demo i have to say i have never played a racing game that is as much fun or intense as this gets,the whole power play thing is best used as a tactical weapon rather than a quickly mash the buttons approach,opening up the different routes is tremendous fun and really is the only way you will get great time trial times in this game.

It is a spectacular looking game with super car models and the car physics are spot on for arcade racing they feel like they have some weight to them which really helps with the absolute spot on handling,couple the looks,sounds,handling and intense game play split second deserves to be in every serious gamers console as it is a blast pure and simple,i for one cannot wait to get my hands on this and go online and dish out some punishment as this game will be as hectic as it is fun and surely thats what games should be about,fun,fun,fun and to be honest nothing does it quite like split second. without doubt the best demo i have ever played so roll on the 21st of may and let the carnage begin.

  Split Second Demo

| | See all Pendergast's reviews (5)

Having just played the split second demo numerous times I can say that fans of the Burnout style racers will love this game. The racing is Burnout style with the aded bonus of being able to blow up the scenery to take out the other racers and create shortcuts. When I say blow up I mean destroy because if you charge up you meter enough by drifting and jumping you can drop airliners onto tthe track and completley change the layour of the race. Overall this game is fun, loud & entertaining, I can't wait for the full game to come out
