Horizon Chase Turbo
Top Critic Average
The spirit of old school arcade racing is reborn in a homage to everything from OutRun to Lotus Turbo Challenge, and despite a few bumps in the road it's all just as much fun as you remember.
I had a hell of a time with Horizon Chase Turbo. Of all of the retro revival games that have come out over the past few years, it is near the top of my personal list of favourites. I can't get enough of it. For future iterations it would be cool to see a track editor, and maybe an online multiplayer mode, or some other way to implement variety into the core game since even with various tracks the experience can get tiring and is best served by short bursts of play, but I like what's here. Horizon Chase Turbo succeeds in being a worthy successor to Top Gear and doesn't try to pretend to do much else beyond that.
Horizon Chase Turbo is an old school inspired arcade racer that can be both fun and frustrating to play. When it is at its fun moments then the attitude of just one more race takes over as you become engrossed. When the game throws up its frustrating moments they can override a lot of goodwill. If you're looking for an arcade racer then Horizon Chase Turbo is worth considering, but don't let its charming looks fool you as you'll face a tough challenge within.
A great homage to the old arcade racing games that manages to hit the right pedal during a couple of hours, but doesn't evolves enought to keep you intertained forever.

Horizon Chase Turbo is a fun and challenging racing game that harkens back to the old school arcade days. The collision system can be aggravating and dampen the fun as a result. The tracks aren't anything to rave about, but the environments have a bright, plucky charm to them. It has its share of flaws, but it is worth checking out if you need a quick racing fix.
Even if it feels like a 90's racing arcade, with marvelous landcapes and frenetic races, Horizon Chase Turbo doesn't give up showing a strong personality and a fresh low poly style.

Being an arcade game, Horizon Chase Turbo is definitely a must-play for those who reminisce about the good old days.
There is a lot of crap to wade through in gaming today. So when something as special and fun as Horizon Chase Turbo comes along, I feel the need to shout it from the rooftops.
A thoroughly enjoyable arcade racer with an eye on the past, Horizon Chase Turbo does a commendable job of reinvigorating 90s arcade racing in a way that nobody else has really bothered to do.
Horizon Chase Turbo may not be the most innovative racing game ever made but that doesn't stand in its way of providing a fun, addictive and lengthy racing game experience, with its never-ending content and simple gameplay. Had it received an online multiplayer treatment, Horizon Chase Turbo could have gone farther.
