There's too much content in Beach Buggy Racing for it to accurately be described as shallow, but outside of the seaside motif, there's not a whole lot here that feels fresh. The controls can seem slow at first and it fails to address many of the genre's major pitfalls, but if you're desperate for a kart racer on your PS4, then this sunny side up outing should tide you over until something better comes along. Just remember to slap on the sunscreen before taking to the track.

Xbox One owners looking for something to fill that Mario Kart void will find plenty to enjoy with Beach Buggy Racing. While it doesn't reinvent the wheel, it definitely handles what it sets out to do admirably. Just know what you are getting into before taking the plunge

Beach Buggy Racing doesn't do anything particularly ground breaking for the kart racing genre, but it does do everything it needs to. The addition of multiplayer would have been nice and taken away the feeling of grinding once you have won all of the available single-player races. With quite literally tens of hours of gameplay on offer in the career and championships alone, and even more if you want to earn all of the available achievements, the game's price point makes this a highly recommended purchase for racing fans.

Had Vector Unit included better characterization and adjusted the difficulty to the point it wasn't trying to pummel you each race (there's competitive and then there's "don't mind me, I'm cheating"), Beach Buggy Racers would've been a solid debut for kart-racing action on newer systems. As it stands, it's not bad, as its multiplayer has something to offer, and the track design clicks. Just be prepared to fight for your first place victory – this ain't no leisure cruise around the island.
