Split Second - Arcade Edition
Split Second Arcade Edition is a fast paced racing game from ESPN that is set in a futuristic track. The track looks like it is a construction site. This is a game where you are allowed to bump off other cars in order to get ahead. The cars here move very fast and you have to be adept at steering these cars so that you can get ahead. When the game begins you have a black car and you have to race against three other racers. The black car is very distinct; the camera view is right behind your car and this gives you a view like that which you would see if you were sitting in the driver’s seat. You can use the whole site, and there will be a lot of dust at times, water showers, and also smoke; remember this is a futuristic construction site. When you are cornering, you should try your best to drift, because you will earn bonus points for the drift. As you are drifting, you will see the amount of points you are making showing at the wheels of your car. You control the car using the arrow keys. Simply keep your finger on the accelerate button and then steer to get ahead of the vehicles. You must also watch that you do not get rammed from behind, or from the side; remember the game allows for racers to sabotage each other by ramming into their opponents and you will be a target. As mentioned earlier, there are only 4 racers and the competition for the first position is very stiff; do not be shocked when you see other cars passing you especially on the far edges of the track. The screen at the top left gives you idea of you points, and also the position in which you are.
