Jasper Kashap writes: "Veteran racing game developers, Black Rock Studio, made a real name for themselves with their quad bike arcade racer Pure in 2008 and have now returned with Split Second: Velocity, a game that, on the surface, looks set to satisfy those left hankering for a spiritual successor to the action orientated Burnout series since Criterion’s recent shift over to EA’s Need for Speed franchise.
Without a doubt, Split Second has more style than substance. Luckily, there’s a lot of style on offer. For the price of admission you’re treated to a high octane, knife edge arcade racer packed with several hours of explosive entertainment. Those looking to scratch the surface and strip away the paintwork may find themselves looking for a new model fairly soon however."
