Although CarX Street is available only on iOS, and then in early launch in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, it can already be said from the elaboration that it has no competitors. Let’s look at it under a microscope.
CarX Street is a mobile racing game that will be available for Android and multiplayer in about 2-3 months. And although all channels and media hype on it, we decided to lower the degree a little and look at both its positive and negative sides. Let’s start on a bad note to end on a good note.
Cons of CarX Street
When you launch this game for the first time, the open world and graphics create a “wow effect”. But it quickly disappears when you realize that the big city is empty. Yes, you can race in it, buy houses to increase slots and move quickly, but passers-by and traffic leave much to be desired. After that, you will love the open world in Watch Dogs and other games. old echelon.
You will also be surprised how high car prices are. Yes, CarX Street is at first an F2P project where you have to farm and complete daily tasks to improve your sports car and earn money lave. At the same time, some YouTube users are already claiming that they managed to find a bug for getting in-game $200,000 per hour. Okay, all this usually brightens up the plot, but there is none.
The last and noticeable minus is the physics of cars. In general, the rendering of textures is also indirectly related to this, because of which, when the map and locations are loaded, the objects in front and on the sides begin to terribly bug, changing their shape arbitrarily and causing the feeling that the Matrix begins cover. And now let’s move on to physics – trampoline jumps work every other time due to collision with textures, and traffic cones can almost stop your car, while the bots continue to go along their trajectory, and you can hardly shoot them down even if you want to. Exactly, I forgot to say about the curbs – if you drive next to them, then the car can arbitrarily fall into the ground.
Pros of CarX Street
So far, CarX Street is the only alternative Need for Speed Underground. Yes, there is NFS: No Limits on mobile, but it’s a tough arcade game with resource farming in missions and PvP participation without any hint of an open world. But let’s have less lyrics and more facts:
- CarX Street has a dynamic day and night cycle. And this is not just a cycle of the Moon and the Sun, because with the advent of twilight, lights, advertising banners, buildings are lit in the city and the feeling of the game becomes completely different;
- Although at some point it becomes boring to ride on local roads, the developers have added several types of roads: wide freeways, cable bridges, tunnels under a waterfall and suburban tracks. Also, the architecture of the city does not allow you to get bored, since there is no copy-paste and each district is unique in its own way;
- I’ll note the presence of gasoline as a separate item, that is, it is necessary to periodically call in at a gas station to replenish the tank. And I will say this – fuel is spent quickly. There are two types of gasoline: regular and sports. The latter is sold for donated currency, although it can be accumulated. Even at the gas station, nitro is bought, but it is quietly recruited in races. Such a system penalizes you for losing races, so you won’t be able to do anything else at the same time;
- I said there is no plot. This is so, instead of it, the developers added a “plug” in the form of clubs. The system is a little hemorrhoids, but it will allow you to open a special farm race, which can be completed every 3 hours. To do this, we pay a fee to a separate club, register a car – it must be of a certain class and level – and go through the race. As soon as you defeat the local boss, a farm race will open with donated currency in the form of a reward.
CarX Street is a raw product, and since it is an F2P project, the game seems empty without content, although it has every chance of reaching the top in its category. From myself I will say that it is better to support developers, sometimes even in hard currency, in order to see a quality product at the output. All the best, see you soon!
