split second is a 7/10 game. It really wasn't that great.It should be no surprise that layoffs happened!

they saw MS:A and simply said "fuck it, our split second 2 will look like ass in comparison....cancel it..."

I think MS:A owes itself to S/S, after all it gave birth to the environemental destuction in a racing game, which looks to continue the trend with NFS The Run.

i played both games and they are differents.

Split Second you press a button to activate a trap.....thats about it.

MS:A you directly RACE INTO crazy shits and level dynamic changes....wich is better(imo offcourse)

I actually loved Split Second. It was a something that was rare, a risk-taker game. Sure, taking risks has its drawbacks such as being built from the ground up and how well they could get the game going, especially if they were on a budget. Bet you that if they make Split Second 2, it would surpass the first one in every way for they would now have had time to polish and add stuff to the sequel than focus on building the game from scratch.

I still have hopes for Split Second 2.

Split/Second is a great game, proud to have platinum on it.

Damn, musta taken ages. Some of the races were insanely hard, but it had that great old-skool difficulty about it.

I thought Split/Second was brilliant, as was PURE. Does this affect a possible PURE sequel as well?
Grannyvukka  +   1177d ago
Pure was awesome & much better than Split Second. On saying that, Split Second was no slouch either, it just fell short of that greatness that Pure donned. Definately worth buying if you only have 360...but if you have a PS3, don't bother, as Motorstorm Apocalypse buries it.

Hope Black Rock survive & come back from this, as a Pure sequel would be very welcome.

I really wish Sony London Studios would make a sequel to the brilliant brother of Wipeout in ROLLCAGE. Rollcage was an awesome premise for a racer.

Its Disney evil.

This blows, I like that game and I was hoping for another.

Well thats a bit crap Split/Second imo was a good game and was a nice change to all the other type of car games out there. Well I hope someone picks up the developer.

That sucks,I really loved Split/Second...even though the online was broken.

Split/Second was good, but I can live without a sequel...
