It seems like good party game, but even then it lacks the longevity that would make you want to come back for more after 30 minutes or so. It's a fun premise, but one that's a few years too late.
Wasted potential! The overall impression is dampened by unvaried courses and monotonous action despite having a decent foundation. Therefore, the genre’s revolution is postponed.

OnRush is a thrill and, appropriately, provides a real adrenaline rush for short play sessions. The lack of depth would have made for a great budget release and perhaps if it had been sold at $20 or $30 it wouldn’t now have empty multiplayer lobbies. As it stands, OnRush is good fun in short bursts and that’s about it.
As an arcade racer, Onrush is a neat distraction, one that lets you pummel opponents and boost to your heart's content. However, there are so many other racers – from Burnout Paradise and Mario Kart to Gran Turismo Sport and Forza Horizon – that can offer so much more, whether you seek a great arcade racer or a serious racing sim.
This is a light package that never reaches the heights of Evolution Studio's previous games, but for those seeking an arcade racer offering quick thrills, it does the trick.
Onrush takes an established genre and drives it down a new path. It creates an experience that is distinctly its own, but that includes a number of flaws. The Burnout-lite experience blends class-based gameplay in a handful of modes, and does so semi-successfully. Onrush has a strong premise at its core. If it adapts over time to focus more on its strengths, it may catch up to the competitive titles it set out to challenge.
In the end, it can be said that this game has lots of potential to turn into an engaging and fun experience. But the lack of content and some minor problems keep it from becoming a true high quality product. Maybe as with Driveclub, developers will keep supporting this one too, turning into a better game in time, but even so, its current situation will surely affect the game's success. And considering all this, experiencing this title can be amusing if you manage to get it with a lower price during sales, and keep your expectations down

When set against other titles offering vehicular combat such as Carmageddon, Interstate '76, or even Twisted Metal, Onrush pales in variety, longevity, and simple car crushing fun.
Onrush is the perfect game to play after a long day at work. It's fast, it's fun and somewhat cathartic as well. Unfortunately the lack of content and a cooperative multiplayer focus that's never fully realized will leave you rushing to play something else after a few sessions.
In ONRUSH you'll be rewarded with hectic, fact-paced action, ridiculous tracks and a suitably eye-popping set of visuals.
Onrush does well to fill that racing void as a non-serious arcade, 'destruction-derby type of vehicular mayhem' experience. However, as enjoyable and heart-pounding as the matches can be, the novelty eventually begins to wear thin and, once that happens, there is little else that can reignite the flame in this racer.
Creators of Motorstorm introducing a new kind of racing. It is amusing but without full-featured multiplayer.

Repetitive gameplay and high price prevent Onrush from becoming a new benchmark in racing genre, but it can still be fun for die hard fans of arcade racing.

ONRUSH tries a number of new things with its team-based driving mechanics, and some aspects of this gamble pay off better than others. Its speed and mechanics are sound, but those looking for something a bit more traditional best approach with caution.
Onrush delivers a sense of thrilling arcade action in a way no other game is doing but the awe-inspiring moments of epic proportions quickly become old as they happen so rapidly.
When blazing along smashing everything in sight or assisting others in a rare team-based racer, Onrush is an absolute blast to play. I wish it handled its "stampede" a little more cleanly when managing respawns and had enough content to truly justify its price point, but we can only hope future updates and community management will lend it the hand it deserves in building a committed playerbase.
Onrush is a fast, fun and entrertaining game. By scraping a little it's surface, we discover that it is more subtle than it seems and therefore has more depth than one might think. The range of action is wide enough for everyone to find his account. But there are some bugs that are hard to forgive, even if they are not very serious. Let's hope that future patches will both correct them and evolve the game so that we can continue to ride for a long time.

Onrush is a very fun and entertaining racing game for the fans of Motorstorm and Burnout, which could've been better if the developers added more real identity to the cars. A relatively small number of routes and a low difficulty also affects the excitement and final impression.

Onrush is a chaotic arcade game that surprisingly comes together – even if there are question marks regarding its longevity. This brash vehicular experience draws inspiration from several different areas of the industry, but it reassembles them into something unusual and entertaining. A great online infrastructure means you can be in and out of the action in seconds, but the package could do with a little more meat on its bones to fully justify its price tag.
Codemasters gives us a fun game but we'll have seen everything it has to offer in a matter of hours unless you're addicted to unlocking cosmetic customization elements.
