Speedway Racing is a mostly competent but ultimately unexceptional attempt to emulate the thrills and spills of Daytona USA – a courageous endeavour indeed. But like the many faux sponsorship advertisements dotted around this game’s speedways, closer inspection drops the curtain to reveal some hard-to-ignore shortcomings.
I've played a good chunk of racing games on the Switch at this point, and Speedway Racing is by far the lowest effort I've seen yet. If it functioned properly and ran smoother, then it would at least be worthy of consideration as a compact title. But in this state, you're better off avoiding it and picking just about any other racer. Sega Ages: Virtua Racing isn't stock car racing like this, but it does have similar arcade-style circuit tracks. It's about the closest thing, and despite being one of the earliest 3D racing games ever, it's a far more enjoyable experience than this poor indie.
