A colourful cartoon racer that lifts some of Nintendo's big ideas, but not its attention to detail.

Trailblazers, in a formula that blends F-Zero with Splatoon, becomes an excellent game and one of the best of its kind. Extremely fun in solo mode and a marvelous experience when played with friends, we recommend it as a great representative of driving games.

A variable frame rate is an out and out killer for any racing game, and despite Trailblazers' clear potential it's impossible to see past that. The overall concept, of merging F-Zero and Splatoon, is a fantastic idea, but perhaps it needed a bit longer in development in order for it to be fully realised.

Trailblazers is an amazing driving game that uses colors to bring something different to the driving genre. It's a pity that the multiplayer of this mix of Splatoon and F-Zero only allows 4 simultaneous players.

Trailblazers isn't a bad game at all, it just doesn't do anything to make me ever want to go back to it. The multiplayer portion of the game does not have enough players to get into matches consistently (or ever, in my case) leaving the lacklustre single player content. There's also the local multiplayer but, just like the single-player content, you and your friends will get bored relatively quickly. To top everything off, the price of the game is far too high for what you are getting, making it difficult to convince anyone you know to pick it up.

Trailblazers is a race-and-paint game for children. With its smooth, consistent gameplay and simplistic challenges, a group of toddlers could be content for hours. Just don't be surprised when the 12 year old is reaching for Grand Theft Auto instead.

Gameplay-wise, Trailblazers kicks off on all cylinders in a wonderful first impression. However, it drags on its way to the finish line, which is why a driver might prefer some company to keep them entertained along the way.

Some performance issues aside, this remains an engaging, and rather different, racing game that just about overcomes its problems to offer some good old fashioned fun.

Overall, Trailblazers is a great little racer and one I aim to come back to in the near future.
