Now you can be the pilot of a flying car in Nitronic Rush, a 3D futuristic racing game that is somewhat reminiscent of the popular movie Tron. The universe that Nitronic Rush is set in is very obviously in the far future, right down to the cool flying abilities of the cars. Because of this, this racing game has a very unique feel to it when compared to others of the racing genre.
The track of Nitronic Rush is very similar to a roller coaster that defies gravity and sends you on a wild racing ride. There are a myriad of ramps, loops, and sections of the track that do not even have a solid road on it. As you can imagine, the racing space of Nitronic Rush is definitely one of the features of the game that really make it stand out from the pack. As an added layer of difficulty, the tracks you have to choose from are all full of dangerous obstacles that you need to avoid. There are saws that are just waiting to cut you into a thousand little pieces, walls that suddenly appear out of nowhere, giant fans that will blow you off the track, and many more pitfalls that you will have to get through if you want to finish – much less win – the race.
Not only is the track of Nitronic Rush unconventional, but the cars are out of this world as well. But do not worry if you are new to the game, as there is a fully comprehensive tutorial that will teach you the ins and outs of how to jump, fly, and drive your vehicle to the best of your ability. Take note, however, that controlling your car at first can be a little challenging, at least until you have memorized all the command options.
The only downside to Nitronic Rush is that there are only two car models to choose from. But really, with all the crazy race tracks that you have to race on, it is not a big deal. Nitronic Rush is a fantastic and engaging graphical game that will give you hours of blood rushing racing entertainment.
