Controlling cute little toy cars around a race track in the kitchen while firing off missiles at other racers, what part of that doesn’t sound good. That’s the basic premise behind Table Top Racers: World Tour-Nitro Edition.
With numerous maps to play through and many hours of missions to complete the game has really evolved from its original mobile game version.
Having been out across all consoles for a little bit now let’s see what the critics are saying about this latest racing game.
“Though not a perfect game, I really enjoyed my time with Table Top Racing: World Tour – Nitro Edition. Even as an accomplished racer I found some events challenging. There are definitely a few difficulty bumps but nothing impossible. The array of events (pure race, battle race, pursuit, eliminator, overtake, checkpoint, hot lap, time trial, drift) helps to keep the action fresh. The art design is fun and really helps to sell the idea of racing you cars. If you ever had a passing interest in the Micro Machines games or like kart racers, then you should consider adding Take Top Racing: World Tour – Nitro Edition to your game library.”
“Table Top Racing: World Tour – Nitro Edition still lacks a sense of speed, for instance, and there’s not much feel to it’s handling. Due, your reaching you cars on YO! Sushi counters and indeed table tops, but that doesn’t mean the action has to be lifeless. There’s not much of a sense of impact when you crash into your opponents or bits of the scenery, either. It all adds up to make Take Top Racing: World Tour – Nitro Edition just not as exciting as it could be.”
“It’s a huge shame that levels tend to repeat themselves occasionally and are rather short, but this is likely just a product of the game having its roots as a mobile title. Despite that, the simplicity keeps it friendly and does feel somewhat old school in terms of handling like in PS1 games like Wipeout, and Formula 1. If you’re into the good ol’ PlayStation racing titles such as these, then Table Top Racing: World Tour – Nitro Edition might be for you.”
So the game sounds interesting but at its current price point I find myself wanting to wait for a sale before I purchase it. It sounds as if it’s made a good keep from mobile to console, unfortunately with a price to match.
