I just bought it and played the tutorial and an online match.

Let me tell you, this game is rough around the edges.

Tutorial is full of invisible walls. There's no way to reverse, so if you run into something can get stuck, you have to restart.

The multiplayer rough. When you attempt to join a game, it will put you in this weird, empty lobby level. But it will never tell you what's going on. There's no indication that it's looking for a game or where you are. Just, eventually you'll be teleported again to the real level. I almost quit because I didn't see anything happening and then I got put at a starting line.

The game mechanics are rough. The turning is really easy. You don't have any sorting of handbrake mechanic, it's just "turn harder" and it's momentum based, so turn early to make the turns.
The abilities have no feedback other than the audio that plays for you. If you get hit by something, you'll have no idea what it is, but your vehicle will say engine damage. So that's neat.

And the "race" is not really a race? The game is based around fighting this stupid monster that runs in circles for no real reason. You use the same mechanics that you fight the other players with to kill it. If you were in first place all match and did 99% of the damage, when the last hit kills it, whatever place you're in is what place you get.
So it's not... really a race?

I don't know... I feel like this game is full of "wouldn't it be cool if" ideas but they fell short of finding the fun or taking the time to polish the moment-to-moment.
I put the $1 I saved not buying this towards Episode 1 Racer.
$0 would beat it.

Here's the trailer. Looks to be at least a decent Wipeout style racing game

Watched a review for the PC version. It's basically a racing game where you chase a monster. Whoever is in first place when the monster falls, wins. Pretty bare bones from what I saw in terms of features. I think for $1 it's worth the gamble.

Very insightful. Thanks for taking the bullet for the rest of us.
