Arcade racer featuring the vehicles of the future!
I don't know how much you sank into that 90s esthetic that made use of lots and lots of panels of info, the kind of deal that made you believe you were a hacker or something! Well, this game makes use of that in its menus which are super crowded with more or less important information! But, actually it's got some purpose if you really want to pick a car that fits your driving style, though, in truth the game has about 3 types of vehicles: understeering, oversteering and an American muscle car type, which goes fast but it's pretty hard to control in turns. At any rate, XCar: Experimental Racing offers you plenty of diversity as it packs a whole deal of tracks and the behavior of the cars, under the three types I mentioned, is pure arcade, easy to control and rarely prone to lose control of. As such, XCar: Experimental Racing is a great time waster type deal, great mainly for single races here and there, but it doesn't really get under your skin so much so that you'd want to keep on playing for extended play sessions. At least graphically it is alright, in the ballpark of the racers released in 97, which is more than enough, really. Give it a go and see for yourself, or go for another casual driving game of steampunk/hacker esthetics, CyberSpeed which is much more original in terms of its track designs.
