If I could imagine the kind of game I’ve been waiting for within the genre, it’s OnRush. Quite a feat for a game that I wouldn’t even call a racer. Whilst some may question the full price point, I can confidently say OnRush is worth every penny, offering an experience that is an adrenaline-filled rush that’ll keep you coming back for more. With a ton of customisation on offer, gameplay mechanics that are not only novel but finely tuned and a highly satisfying learning curve, OnRush manages to nail everything it tries its hand at. If you’re at all interested in the genre, I highly recommend it. OnRush is something special
Onrush is an excellent reimagining of the driving genre. It’s Evolution Studios greatest hits smashed together with the ultimate competitive traits of the very best modern multiplayer games. It stands alongside its peers as a reason to invest in premium online services, laughs in the face of those who would dare pigeonhole it and demands your attention.
Onrush is a racing game that strips away the commonly understood mechanics of the genre to deliver something that is both fresh and classic at the same time. And a vivacious multiplayer experience that rivals some of the big contemporary shooters of the day.
I'm a fan of Arcade racers, the first game I purchased on the Switch was MarioKart and Blur, Split Second and Burnout remakes would be on my list long before Forza. ONRUSH doens't just scratch an itch, it pushes the boundaries, the last time I enjoyed ANY driving game this much was Burnout Paradise and Codemasters have provided us with the best arcade driving game in over a decade.
Onrush's unique blend of influences results in an innovative and refreshing racing game that replaces the finish line with objectives and teamwork.
Since the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One released in 2013, the gaming world has been pretty devoid of arcade racers, instead opting for open-world or simulation experiences. The likes of Motorstorm, Disney's Pure, and the criminally underplayed Blur have disappeared recently, but Onrush's blend of classic arcade racing, stunning visuals, and online team-based shooter ideas make it unique enough to stand out even against the competition of old.
After a decade of waiting, Burnout's heir apparent is here. With a mix of reckless driving, team-based objectives, and just a dash of neon superpowers, Onrush is an explosive cocktail that's not to be missed.
I had a great time playing ONRUSH and was the first arcade game that I had played in a very long time. It was a great refresher to come back to after years of playing Forza and Sim racers.
Obviously there I've made a ton of comparisons to Overwatch as this game obviously took inspiration from there. I wanted to talk about another game that I feel it has comparisons to and that's Rocket League. When I played Rocket League in Beta the first time I knew there was something special there, and I got similar feelings playing ONRUSH. It's new and different from your traditional car game in a really unique way. It has some growing to do in terms of what it's future looks like and how to keep a player base engaged, but it's following a good model for that. Hopefully we get a road map of what future updates look like going forward. Check this game out as I think we could be talking about it for a few years.
Onrush took the best from the dynamic arcade races and diluted the formula with elements from the session games. It turned out fresh and incredibly exciting.

Onrush rapidly became one of my favorite arcade titles because of its frenetic pace and fun gameplay. Even with its small amount of content, I can see myself playing Onrush for a long time.

After my time with On Rush, I got over Evolution Studio's closure in a heart beat. On Rush is the first collaboration between two racing giants that shows its deep heritage and creates a new formula for itself. All in a, it's the perfect package of what an arcade racing game should be.

While I have honestly thought that Paul Rustchynsky, and the ex-Evolution developers have given their all when crafting MotorStorm: Apocalypse, then I am more than happy to say that ONRUSH is a much superior title, which dwarfs all the other arcade racers of this generation, and should be seen by other developers and publishers as a shining example of what racing games should be like.
Onrush takes the best components of arcade racing and mashes it with the addictive nature of competitive online team-based combat to create one of the best games of the year
Onrush is one of the better multiplayer games on the market and is easily a game for all ages. The customization, competition, and teamwork all make for a heck of an afternoon of gaming. And where it is 7v7, you can't possibly run out of spots for friends to come get some.
Altogether, Onrush is like a breath of fresh air. It's fast, frenzied and above all else, fun. If you're looking for something a little different to add to your game library, then you could do a lot worse than this.
It's a one-of-a-kind experience that adds freshness to a market that desperately needed it. The vehicle abilities, awe-inspiring crashes, and the over-the-top action make Onrush a must play for anyone who enjoys racing games. Hell, even if driving games aren't your cup of tea, Onrush is one cup that everyone should try.
OnRush is a different type of racing game, you aren’t trying to come first or be number one, you’re trying to complete set objectives as part of a six-man team. The four modes offer a lot of variety when combined with the many different stages, vehicles, time of day, and seasons. The only downside I had was the randomness of whose cosmetics you receive it the in-game loot crates and the lack of a standard ‘race’ mode. Whether you’re playing it in single player or multiplayer, you will find hours upon hours of entertainment as you smash, crash, boost, and rush your team to victory.
OnRush is an exhilarating, old-school arcade racer... with both its feet firmly planted in the new "online multiplayer" millennium. It needs more depth in its class system and more modes, but it's fun as hell!
