Horizon Chase Turbo Review
Posted: 20 months ago, last updated 3 days ago.
Four players can race each other on one system as they battle to learn each track’s twists and turns, to manage turbo and collect fuel. The single-player, 100-tracks campaign mode is excellent, with the added challenge of finding every blue token and perfectly managing your fuel.
The blistering pace, simple steering and rudimentary collision detection are part of the fun and level the playing field for all ages more than the nuanced controls of games like Mario Kart. This is a great place to start your video game racing journey.
For younger players in the family there is the free downloadable ‘Rookie Series’ that tailors the game for beginners: twenty-four selected races with easier, computer-controlled cars and without the need to collect fuel. This also enables you to unlock each track just by finishing. It’s a great way to extend the game to including everyone on the sofa.
Players: You can play with 4 players in the same room and up to 4 players online. Along with racing four players at a time, it’s also a fun game for competing for time trials and circuit scores. Who can get the fastest lap time, finish time, collect the most tokens and have the most fuel left? You can extend this competition to friends and family outside the home with the online ‘Ghost Mode’ where you see opponents as a ghost car that you must beat.
The ‘Playground Mode’ is available after accruing 700 points and offers a challenge that changes every two weeks. Players can also battle to get the best score on remixed circuits with extreme or unusual aspects (night, wind, harder computer opponents) to make them more difficult. Scores are ranked with other players online and the winners are published at the end of the two weeks.
