Getting Some Bang For Your Buck

Gameplay - 8/10
Storyline - 5/10
Graphics - 7/10
Game Score : 20/30

I don't really find myself enjoying a lot of racing games outside of the Need For Speed franchise but somehow this one got added to the short list of awesomeness. Now only if they had incorporated a story-line; even if it was a shitty one I would have been grateful. Today we look at Bang Bang Racing; yup I laughed at the title too. All in all a seemingly simple to pick up and play type of game which can be fun for one or all.

Bang Bang Racing is a racing video game co-developed by Playbox and Digital Reality and published by Digital Reality. It was first released as Bang Bang Racing THD for Android-based devices on May 13, 2011. It was released in June 2012 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 via the PlayStation Network and Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade. Bang Bang Racing is a racing video game played from a top-down perspective. The game's sole objective is to finish before all other racers.  In addition to single player races four player splitscreen gameplay is offered and scores can be tracked via online leaderboards. Courses, cars and liveries are unlocked in the single player portion of the game, and these unlocks carry over to the local multi-player.

The game features four different race car classes, each with unique attributes: N-Dura, Evo GT, Protech and Apex. Within each class five different cars are offered for a total of 20 cars. Each class of car is further broken down into other categories based on what attribute is their best such as handling, NOS, etc. Each car also features eight different paint liveries. Nine courses are available, and each can be played in a reverse layout. Additionally each course has multiple shortcut layouts, resulting in a total of 54 unique configurations.

All in all even though the game is a bit lacking in content there is much fun to be had with multiple people while playing this game. Its one of those games that you experience best with other people to add to the excitement. By yourself not so much as the game only comes with 3 main modes: Career, Championship, and Free Play. Most of your time will initially be spent in Career mode so as to unlock the various cars and tracks that are in the game for use in the other game modes. Once that's done get 3 other friends and let the mayhem begin; if you happen to be forever alone and not have any friends to play with then you can always try to take on the top positions on the Leaderboards.

So feel free to check out Bang Bang Racing on Android-based devices, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 via the PlayStation Network or Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade.
