Critic Reviews for Hotshot Racing

High on speed and low on polygons, Hotshot Racing is a fun, old-school ode to the golden era of early '90s 3D racers.

No Recommendation / Blank

An enjoyable and detailed racer successfully invokes the spirit of the 90s arcade, even if it doesn't quite have a spark of its own.

7.5 / 10.0

I have to admit, I found Hotshot Racing to be quite enamoring. I don't have much nostalgia for the early days of 3D racing games, but I do appreciate a good arcade racer, and that's exactly what this is. Its cheery sound design and visuals are endlessly charming and the driving feels exactly as it should. If you feel the need to go back to the simpler days of racing games, this certainly fits the bill. This likely won't be the last time I take it for a lap around the track.

Hotshot Racing is a nostalgia-tickling delight that doesn't have quite enough depth to keep pulling you back for any real length of time.

Hotshot Racing brings back memories from Virtua Racing and Ridge Racer. It´s a fast arcade, with a very interesting graphic approach and classic music, but it falls short on game modes, cars and circuits.

Both a very nice tribute to Virtua Racing and a good arcade racing game per-se, Hotshot Racing is a nice single-player experience and a surprising multiplayer package.

As an ode to classic racers, Hotshot Racing is a fast, fun game. It's just let down by limited content and some frustrating AI.

Feel the polygonal burn as super-speed graphics bring old-fashioned car chases a fresh thrill
