Pressure Overdrive is a fun arcade style game for anyone who likes racing games and shooting things. The short levels make it easy to jump into, and with plenty of ways to customize, there is an avenue for many different styles of gameplay.

It certainly is one to add to the list, especially if you have kids or you're just looking for a solid party game.

I appreciate the desire to do something unique with a vertical shooter, but some key elements hold Pressure Overdrive from being great. Local coop is appreciated, but outside of the starting machine gun, I found the additional weapon choices to be lackluster due to a low rate of fire. Not only that, but the lock-on mechanic of the lightning firing weapon would miss half of the time, firing into the ground instead. Boss fights are quite challenging, especially on highly difficulties, but the lack of customizable controls is questionable.

8 / 10

I liked playing through Pressure Overdrive, and had fun with the way each race was setup. The environments look great and the game runs very smoothly. There are a ton of upgrades you can add to your buggy so that you can customize your experience, adding a lot of replay value to the game – especially when you factor in Endless mode and the leaderboards.
