Traffic Racer: Fast And Reckless Review
Traffic Racer is a game for speed lovers. It nails down the feeling of reckless speeding through the traffic maze by merging an endless runner game with a traditional racing.
Plus, there are no traffic lights, no turns to the highway, while the random collision won’t cost you much. Atmospheric and engrossing, this game will make you feel like a crazed Hollywood hotshot screeching tires as you maneuver among the cars.
Traffic Racer has 3D graphics and visually attractive design. However, it isn’t overly impressive comparing to major racing games like Asphalt 8: Airborne or Real Racing 3.
The graphics include shadows and reflections pretty well, this added with the symmetrical scenery on both sides of the road results in a pretty cool atmosphere while you ride down the freeway, you feel a bit gangsta!
The music changes as to whether you’re in the garage, picking a car or if you’re on the freeway. Both songs fit completely with a sort of upbeat rhythm to them, lifting your mood as you play.
The sound score gets a bit repetitive, and you might find yourself muting it after some time. It would be nice to have a choice of soundtracks, or the possibility to play your own music while playing.
You start the game with a car and limited selection of colors. And it’s up to you how to play from this point. You can either start buying the best cars right away with in-game purchases, or proceed with the default car, earning cash for upgrades and new cars.
Its spread of game modes is sparse. You can either get as far as you can without crashing in Endless mode, along a one-way or two-way street, see how many points you can accrue in 100 seconds in Time Trial, or just drive for the sake of it in Free Drive mode.
Along with that, you can choose a location — desert, suburb, snowy, or night city.
The gameplay is simple and yet, it brings you an exciting sense of unlimited speed and traffic king title. To gain points, speed up and drive at above 60mph to overtake each car on your way. It also requires a lot of grinding just to unlock better cars and new tracks.
Then, all points you got during the race translate into in-game cash, which can buy you new cars, more color options, more tires, or upgrades to your favorite car. And it’s it. The main point of the game — race and improve your cars.
The car view is from behind, while on your rights you see gas and brake pedals and on your left — the turns and claxon controls.
To steer, tilt your phone to the point that you'll be threading in between traffic like a stunt driver.
You can enhance the car’s responsiveness as you accumulate more points, yet, the cars maneuver well by default. They swish like a lightning in between traffic, getting you the most joy out of it.
Replay Value 7/10
Traffic Racer is a score based game so longevity wise it never ends, after you either crash or the time runs out you get in-game money which you can either spend on new cars, new wheels or new levels. This allows you as the player to decide either to save up for a Bugatti or to spend your well earned in-game wealth on new wheels or upgrades for your new bright red or green breezer.
The depth of the game goes as much as you want to unlock more cars in your garage. But what might keep you coming back is the racing action. When you simply want to relax and enjoy the ride, it’s a must-have game, no matter how many cars you unlocked.
You can unlock the cars and tracks with in-game cash if you don’t want to drive one or two simple cars to accumulate enough points. Without having unlimited hours it can be difficult, therefore you can purchase them anytime.
You can get 40.000 in-game cash for $2.99, which will unlock Mitsubishi Evo, or at least that’s what the car looks like. Likewise, you can cash out as much as $29.99 and unlock the most expensive cars.
The two tracks locked in the beginning, the snowy road and night city, you can unlock with 15.000 and 30.000 in-game cash respectively.
And there is also a police car you can buy which is insanely expensive, and it unlocks a mode named “Police chase,” this enigmatic feature certainly seems promising however it does take a lot of saving up to unlock, costing a whopping 450,000 coins.
The game looks attractive enough, and it smartly offers unrestricted speeding, nicely drawn 3D highways and customization option, which will keep you hooked.
Even though there isn’t a large number of ways you can customize your cars, and unlocking without in-app purchases is not a simple task, the gameplay is thoroughly enjoyable and has the potential to get you addicted for a long time.Collapse
