Top Critic Average
ScreamRide is currently the most fun I have had with a videogame in 2015 so far. I think the idea of this game is brilliant, and it is absolutely addicting to play. With three separate career modes, a beautiful physics based destruction system and the sandbox mode, this should keep you occupied for quite some time.
Screamride may not revolutionize the genre in a deep compelling way and it doesn't have strong multiplayer options, but it's pure entertainment and packs in as much content as a world-class amusement park. If you've been wanting a game that makes you scream "WHOO!", Screamride has just the ticket.
Peers in seemingly disparate genres have assumed mastery over impulsive tests of skill, the strategic obliteration of unreliable architecture, and a judicious regard for practical engineering, but none have been arranged together as uniform and effective as ScreamRide. For a game so persistently engrossed in outlandish destruction, its accompanying structure is surprisingly sound.
ScreamRide is thrilling, addictive, fun, enjoyable, well-crafted, rewarding, challenging, and has the potential to go on to be a long and successful franchise. It isn't just about holding on to your hat as you fly down a vertical drop, building the biggest coaster you can, or trying to hold on to your lunch as you hit an inversion at 120mph. There's thought, the tools for a community to spring up around it, and lots of longevity here, and at really is only some very minor niggles that stops ScreamRide from picking up perfect marks.
Screamride is actually three games in one – four, if you count the sandbox mode – and none of them are probably what you expect
