Split/Second: "Eww Eww That Smell"
Posted: Monday May 24th, 2010 by

Split/Second is a new new racing/action game from Black Rock Studios and Disney Interactive for the PC, PS3, 360, and iPhone. The concept goes like this: you are part of a racing reality show trying desperately to survive to the final show an be crowned the season champion. The areas you race in are rigged to explode. The other drivers and yourself can all trigger explosive events in order to improve your/their odds of winning. But just in case you start to get bored there are also heavy-lift helicopters that try to drop trucks on you, helicopters that shoot missiles at you, cranes and wrecking balls swinging about to clean you off the track, etc.

As you drift, jump, and deftly avoid obstructions, explosions, and the like, you fill up your "power play" meter. The more "power play" you have the more catastrophic the event you can trigger. Using a full meter worth of power play can even change how you move through the set as buildings, bridges, smoke stacks, etc. fall all around you.

The reviews I've read leads me to believe that if you've got the controller in your hands, you're pretty much going to be on the edge of your seat trying desperately to use full body motion to influence your movements. That's my kind of racing game.

Multiplayer options include 8 player online and 2 player, split screen offline modes. So feel free to encourage your friends to accidentally poop themselves as well.
