Split/Second: Velocity is an intense arcade racing game that drops reality for a crazy fantasy TV game show of explosions, destruction, and then more explosions.
This one-race demo is pretty hefty at just over a gigabyte, but for that you get a really impressive, high octane experience. Split/Second: Velocity has a story, that you are a contestant in an insane reality TV show, where you race around courses that are loaded with destructive events that can change the track as well as wreck vehicles.
In this Split/Second: Velocity demo the race is around an airport, with falling towers, bridges and even a plane crash to liven up the action. The speed is incredible in this game, and the cars and scenery look great as you career around the course. There are excellent camera effects that really increase the intensity of Split/Second: Velocity , like blurring, vibrating and some great slow motion crashes!
There are no setup options, so if your PC struggles with frame rates, there's nothing you can do unfortunately. With lots of cars and events on screen, it can get a bit hectic. Split/Second: Velocity brings back the quick thrill of arcade games from the past, which is a great prospect. If you enjoy the detailed realism of simulators, this over-the-top racer won't appeal to you.
Split/Second: Velocity is a racing game that puts high octane action centre stage, while throwing the real world out of the window. It's fantastic!
