Well now. The Hot Wheels game looks remarkably okay.The very first
gameplay for Hot Wheels Unleashed, below, shows off what appears like a good game racer starring the vehicles from the hugely-popular toy range.
In reality there’s not a huge quantity going on here apart from the driving, with an absence of environmental dangers and even power-ups to contend with. But the racing looks weighty, has good zest and the visuals aren’t too bad. And did I find a couple of shortcut opportunities to explore? Compared to how I thought Hot Wheels Unleashed would look, well, it’s better.Perhaps I need to
n’t be shocked. Hot Wheels Unleashed is from Milestone, the Italian developer of the well-received MotoGP and Ride games, so racing game pedigree is here.My three-year-old boy enjoys Hot
Wheels, therefore my living room is overrun by loads of little vehicles. He’s got a toy garage that has a lever you can pull to shoot 2 of the vehicles around a loop. The noise it makes drives me mad. He’s going to enjoy this game.Hot Wheels Unleashed is due out on 30th September 2021 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and Nintendo Switch. Expect approximately 12 players online and splitscreen for up to 2.
