by Tbaby Split Second Review
Well split second is a game for the hardcore at heart also similar to a party game but due to the explosions and the split second finishes I rated it in the hardcore category. I think they could have implied 2-4 players offline instead of just two, If you want a game to sell you must include extra players on the adventure, Not saying that single player games are boring to be honest there some of the best. But I think it'll be cool to include more then just 2 players offline not nothing major just a small adjustment.
Rated 8 out of 10 by MWarEagle You'll need to make Split Second choices.
When I first got Split Second, only one thing could go through my mind: It's made by Disney. I was pretty impressed by Pure, the ATV racing game developed by Disney Interactive. I didn't really enjoy this game until I got further into the episodes within the game. Gameplay follows a consistent story line of a show, featuring episodes that the player decides to take on. Graphics were over the top, making this racing game more than just driving. This game didn't last me long as I personally do not enjoy racing games, but this one caught my attention. 72 events within 12 episodes of pure racing demolition and fun, this game may last the average racing fanatic more than myself. There are other types of games that I enjoyed more rather than the story, such as Survival and Air Revenge. Entertaining to say the least, but overall I gave this game a 8 because of it's amazing graphics and interesting gameplay, but lacked the overall lasting appeal to my taste.

If you like racing... if you like fast paced action and state-of-the-art graphics. This game is so much fun! I actually scream and yell when I play this game, which is rare. It's exciting all the time. The tracks are easy to drive, not a lot of skill involved on the driving end, but managing your way around the explosions gets nearly impossible at times. There's a good amount of track diversity, especially considering the fact that you can blow up the track and make new routes to win. The only thing I can say about Split/Second is that this game is not heavily into car customization, but who cares when the whole point is devastation at screen blurring speeds? There are plenty of cool cars and I'm not even half way through the game yet. Even the title screens kick butt. I didn't even know Disney made games this cool. Well done! Point is...buy this game. We didn't even get into multiplayer... need I say more?

I have been playing the demo for this game for nearly 2 weeks (WED 5/12/10 now). Just on a demo, this game kicks butt! The only thing I don't understand is the reality TV angle. So far, with the demo, it really just comes off as a racing game. Perhaps when I get the actual game, I'll understand the reality TV angle, but then again, I won't care either way. I hate all reality TV shows, so I can really do without. I don't know how people are playing Blur already. It's not out yet; there is no demo available on x-box live. Each person is entitled to their opinion. If I had a chance to play both, maybe I wouldn't have placed a $5 deposit with Gamestop for Split Second (a little plug for you guys!). I am eager to get this game. I play the demo for about 30 minutes every night. I like the idea of blowing things up to knock your opponents off course. Last night, I was able to finally change the racing course. We expect too much from games anymore. There are certain types of games where you just want to play, have fun and not worry about what achievements to get. For me, Split Second is that game.

I've played both demo's. *Split Second & Blur* 1. Split second focuses on backdrop surroundings in graphics over car detail, which is to be expected since the focus is terrain explosions (EPiC Explosions if you get a FULL 3 BARS!) 2. The gameplay mechanics of the car is very similar to OUTRUN, or Ridge Racer... which is not a bad thing if you've liked those games.. or is if you didn't. :) 3. Just the single demo map in single player mode has tons of replay value, and that is just from passing the controller around. 4. Online demo of this in vs mode is not available, so it wouldn't be fair to measure either game against each other on this aspect. Blur: In reference to Blur, blur is essentially a retooled 'Mario Kart'.... Which is obviously not a bad thing if your a fan of Mario Kart in any of it's renditions. :) end result: Dev's of Blur have done a great re-spin on Mario Kart in my opinion... along with the Dev's from Split/Second, have taken the game mechanics of the famous Modern Warfare 2.. or even the original, and managed to package it in a Racing Game. Hat's off to a sleeper summer blockbuster. :)
Rated 8 out of 10 by NightRanger112 Great Racing Game
This game is the bomb. It is so intense. Everytime I get in first I check to make sure no one is behind me so they don't trigger a power play. The vehicles are pretty tight. I do have a few complaints though. The tracks are pretty fun, but you can only drive around the same track so many times before you get bored as crap. I'm on the fourth season (out of 24) and have raced on the same 4 tracks about 20 times, and I'm getting really annoyed. I think they should have made about 50 tracks, and you unlock 2 per season, just to keep a variety. But, no. I mean the tracks are fun, but you can only race the same track like 4 times before you want a new track. When you unlock a new track, it's like Christmas, until the next season, when you get annoyed of the the track you unlocked last season. Other than that it's probably one of the best racing games.
Rated 10 out of 10 by shadow24 Split/Second must have game to buy
When i First saw the Split/Second game on the ign website i read the article of what Split/Second was all about and i was like this game look awesome so when. I saw the Demo of the game on xbox markeplace i download it so i could try the demo out and i was cool the only thing that i did not like about the Demo was to short but it was still cool before i bought it and waited for the pries to go down on the game when i did buy the. I could not wait to go home and play the game when. I first start the game i was this game good so far has the game went on it was easy at first and as the game goy went along it get hard as go a long the game as good gamplay it as good graphics through the game the sound is excellent there is nothing bad to say about this game this game is one of the coolest game every this beat all racing game i have right now
Rated 10 out of 10 by Bubs21 Awesome!
I was debating on whether or not to get this game, then Disney added a buy one get one free with Split/Second and I just couldn't resist. This is a very awesome game that, I do agree with other reviewers, is not very challenging, until you have to dodge a Power Play. I was skeptical when I first got the game because I wasn't sure what to expect. But, Split/Second is INSANELY addicting!! I've only had it for two days and I've almost beaten the game! I just can't get enough of it! One thing I do have to say is if you are looking for a game to go with your Xbox 360 Racing Wheel, this game is not for it. I got Split/Second so I could use it with my Racing Wheel but it didn't really work, but that doesn't matter because it is just as intense with the controller. So if you are looking for a great game, look no further than Split/Second!
Rated 10 out of 10 by jman19917 awsome game
greatest racing game ever created. this game is amazing in every aspect. the thing i like about it is the quick changes like a plane flying into the road or a bridge collapsing and even buildings falling down. even if your not a racing fan you would love this game. the graphics are amazing and the controls are easy to get used to. there are a lot of cars to chose from but i would like to create a car from scratch. there are so many different things that could happen on just 1 course. the online game play is great in every way. even if you don't have online the single player and split screen are great. the game can get really easy at some points and really hard at others. this game is great in all aspects and even better graphics. if you like racing games this is a must have and if you don't you should also get this game
