Hotshot Racing is a blisteringly fast arcade-style racing game fusing drift handling, razor-sharp retro visuals and an incredible sense of speed to create an exhilarating driving experience.

Developed by racing game veterans SUMO Nottingham and Lucky Mountain Games, Hotshot Racing is an all-new driving experience which revives the classic arcade gameplay of the 90s and thrusts it into the modern era.

Game pass?

X box (PC) game pass?

I can’t see it
Absolute bargain. Such a fun game. I have ploughed hours into it
I found it boring, sorry.

Rubberbandtastic.

Huge wide tracks.

My go to's for arcade racing would be OutRun 2006: Coast to Coast, or Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

Try playing it on a higher difficulty (hard and expert) to get a more of an Outrun 2006 feel. It speeds up the cars and the overall racing.
I might need to give it another shot as I thought it was crap, hugely annoying rubber band racing and the controls were tripe.... a VERY poor mans Mariokart less the fun. That said, I only did it for the reward points so it wasn’t “fun”

Might give it a go again on the higher settings - I was soooo looking forward to this as well. I've got it as part of Game Pass, disappointed it's only Xbox Game Pass and not PC though.

I understand there is no ultrawide support on PC either and it leaves the game looking rather short, fat and elongated so that would be a nono for me. I'd rather have the side black bars but it seems selecting, say 1920 x 1080 just stretches it out as well.
I played it on gamepass for console, it seemed fun but it's running a bit low res on the original console I was looking out for it on PC cheap. Sweet deal.

On the One S it hurt my eyes, looks fine for me on the One X with a 4K TV

Its ok...

The rubber banding is horrific. No matter how good you are they’ll always be at your heels.

Rubber banding is only like that on normal, as mentioned above play hard or expert and it's not like that. All the online lobbies are either hard or expert for that reason...

I was playing this last night with a mate - I found it rather fun and it was a silky smooth experience. Not tried the cops n robbers mode yet mind!

Outrun 2006 is superb, it's a travesty it was delisted. Make sure you enable the missing effects on PC!

First thing I did was get the FXT patches.

It should be said that the game looks awesome in 21:9 - which makes Hotshot Racing all the worse for not supporting ultrawide all these years later!

Loads of old stuff on there including Outrun 2006 - currently I have the superb Star Trek Voyager Elite Force installed.
