Split/Second is a racing game with a big twist. Instead of just purely racing your car or tweaking it out to get the best performance, you're armed with a power play meter. As the meter gets filled "special" events can be triggered. What's so special about these events?
Well they include explosions, airplanes crashing on a runway and buildings collapsing right in front of (or on top of) your car. The higher your meter, the bigger the event. Events are split into different tiers so players will have to decided whether to save up for the big bang or strategically use them throughout the race.
