STAFF REVIEW of Smashing Drive (Xbox)

Smashing Drive Box art Smashing Drive is a simple game, which is its saving grace and at the same time its downfall. It's perhaps the most simplistic racer in years, so it's very easy to pick up and play. But, at the same time it is a very empty and shallow experience. You can easily put this one down and not think about it for a long time (which is what I did).


As I said, it's terribly simplistic. Basically you accelerate and steer and race the CPU cab to the finish line. And this simplicity can make it fun to pick up and play a few times. But, with so many good racers on the Xbox, this one is not even worth it's bargain basement price.


Graphics are not on the high end. I can't off the top of my head think of a racer on the Xbox that has worse graphics than this one. It's not that they are terrible, they just look slightly dated and there isn't much to look at.


What?!? No custom soundtracks. This is inexcusable for a racer on the Xbox to not have this feature. So, you'd think without custom soundtracks that it would have a good soundtrack of it's own, right? Wrong. Instead the game has very lame music.


Suggestions:
Custom soundtracks, more vehicles, game varieties, better graphics.


Overall: 5.0 / 10
Gameplay: 5.0 / 10
Visuals: 5.0 / 10
Sound: 2.0 / 10
