Horizon Chase (Switch)

Not sure this is more like Outrun or Pole Position. The graphics are very simple, but at least the action is smooth.
What kills the game is how it constantly prompts you to check your internet connection.
Not just when you start it up, but during the race!
Granted my system is offline but it should respect that.

Not sure, never saw the message on PS4 version, but just last night I realized the first DLC was out there for $1.99 so I bought it. I like the game. Great music.

A game it very much is like and takes the majority of its inspiration from is a great sprite scaling racer on the Super Nintendo called Top Gear (No relation to the tv show). The Horizon Chase developers even hired the same music composer as that Super Nintendo game.

I just bought this on the PS4 and have been having a ball after wanting to play this for years, ever since it was a mobile exclusive game 5 or 6 years back. I had given up hope in getting a console port since the ports to home consoles seemed stalled for the longest time, but they finally came through.

It was going cheap on xbox 1 but I thought it looked like a mobile game so did not bother with it.

If you have an android phone get this one instead. It is class.

Final Freeway R2.

Also it is free. Never asks to be put online.

This game was free during July, for PS+ members on PS4. I downloaded it but haven't tried it yet. The art made me think of Outrun, so I was hoping it had a similar vibe. Guess not... Looking forward to the review.

Final Freeway has a nice aesthetic, but no difficulty. It's an extremely easy game which should never be the case for an arcade racer.

Sounds like the Critic didn't like Horizon Chase, but I'm loving it so far after 3 or 4 hours.
