REKT! High Octane Stunts
Top Critic Average
For the tiny asking price you get a complete and charming single experience that will keep rewarding your efforts with extra content that, in turn, helps to expand the multiplayer portion of the game. Tight controls and enjoyable in-game physics seal the deal, and while a more traditional racing mode would have been nice, what's on offer more than justifies the low asking price.
Rekt! High Octane Stunts is fun. The multiplayer is fine, but the solo game is where it's at with a classic arcade loop, plenty of unlockables, and controls that are easy to pick up and play. It does well if you want something that isn't all that serious. Given the game's $6 price tag, Rekt! Is a fine choice for those who want a quick fix in the extreme sports genre.
Simply put, most indie games don't feature as much action-packed replay value as the super-fun trick-based REKT! High Octane Stunts.
Overall, REKT! High Octane Stuns is a decent game, which, for the price, might be worth checking out if it sounds like it’s your thing. Nonetheless, I honestly don’t think that you’ll miss much if you decide to skip it. If you’re on the fence, you can always download and check out the demo on Steam.
I had a great time with Rekt! High Octane Stunts. It isn't highly intensive or elitist and allows for a relaxing experience. There's only competition between you and your own high score. Even though I found the game to be lacking in customization and level arenas, I give this title a solid 7 out of 10.
REKT is a game that has some potential, but ultimately suffers from being very light on content while seemingly missing every chance to realize that potential. If you like the idea of playing a slimmed-down version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater meets Rocket League with cars instead of skateboards, you can certainly get some enjoyment out of this. But I think that’s a pretty niche audience for a game in today’s market.
