Although racing is not my thing, I definitely recommend the game. Despite the high speed, gameplay is easy to get the hang of, and you can tell the developers put a lot of hard work into the environments and the controls so that everything feels just right. Lightfield is a fun racing+parkour game, and I look forward to seeing what the team does next.
Highly polished and with beautiful presentation, this futuristic parkour-inspired game is a true unique take on the genre – not something that can be said often. If you like Wipeout, you will definitely enjoy this.
As a whole, Lightfield is a game that brings a new level to racers that has never been touched. With the flaws that were present when I've played, it is still worth a try to get your hands on. Even if it's a game for only when you have people over, this is something that you do not want to miss out on.
With beautifully bright, hugely abstract visuals, a pumping soundtrack, a superbly well designed menu system and a huge amount of addictive racing across well detailed tracks, LIGHTFIELD is most definitely one that the racers out there should give a go - especially if those racers are more obsessed with bettering lap times than racing actual opponents.
I enjoyed the core concept, and learning the best path to finish line (even if you're still forced to go through a finish line outside of a neat exploration mode), but every now and again there'd be a stutter. It's not game-breaking by any means, but it'd certainly interrupt the brief moment of zen I'd get trying to beat my finish times.
