SpeedBurst - 3D Racer

Has anybody purchased this? It's a futuristic 3D racer. Any thoughts?

Was about to post the same question. the menu screen looks promising, but would love to see or hear how the gameplay looks/feels/etc.

It is described as a time trial race only, and if you notice, there are no other vehicles on the track. Doesn't mean it's a bad game of course, but it's something I don't think I'll be bothering with.

You're right. Maybe arn will find it interesting and take a look at it. The graphics look good, but the rest of the screenshots look simplistic - which could mean that the game itself isn't that great. With the other 2 racers coming up soon, I don't want to buy another racer if it's not great.

I just played it. It's ok. not great. not terrible.

I don't know if it's worth getting at this point. It doesn't have a great feel to it. There is a soundtrack which is nice.

It's just timed races. There are tracks and you have to get to the end within a certain amount of time to get unlock the next track.

I like the online feature and the soundtrack. It's not flashy but overall quite entertaining if you're into that kind of game.
