Share a couch with your family and friends and relive the old times of playing in Split-Screen Multiplayer all night long, in any of the game modes.

FOR ALL KINDS OF PLAY

Playing alone or with friends, travel across the globe in World Tour, compete in short bursts in Tournament, survive through the Endurance and stay competitive as the game evolves with the all-new Playground mode.

Horizon Chase Turbo has a retro soul in a modern body. You'll drive your car through extraordinary places, watching the sunset, facing rain, snow, harsh sandstorms and even a volcanic eruption.

Amazing price, I'm tempted. Has anyone on here played it ? What's it like ?


I had it on PS4 as freebie and it did nothing for me. Retro without any charm.

I love this game - it's a total nostalgia trip (I have it on Switch and PS4). The races are so short that it's perfect for those "I've got five minutes to spare" moments. I even purchased the Summer Vibes DLC recently and that's great fun for a couple of quid extra.. I used to love the old racing games like Crazy Cars, Lotus Elite, Top Gear and Outrun and this totally takes me back to those games. If you're after modern handling and a realistic racing experience, this is about as far away from that as possible :-)

Yeah I'm a big outrun fan and used to love Power Drive on my Mega Drive.
It seems to divide opinion! Metacritic is at 82 / 8.3 so I can't be the only one that likes it. I paid full price for it when it came out and I've got a lot of mileage out of it - if you'll excuse the pun! It really works well hand-held - it's super fast paced and pefect for quick blasts.

Had it on ps4. Got the platinum. It's quite playable but very repetitive and just feels sort of dull. Couldnt really recommend it. (Didnt try couch multiplayer so cant comment on that.)

I would say it is like a less good Top Gear. It doesn't remind me of Outrun at all.

It works really well as a hand-held game on the Switch - maybe that's the differentiator because PS4 players don't seem to be enjoying it!
Absolutely FANTASTIC game! A must for racing game fans.
It sounds a MUCH better game on Switch than on PS4. It's brilliant if you enjoy playing handheld.

The cavalry has arrived!
horrible game. it was free on psn (if i remember correctly) and it sucked.......badly
I like retro games, I must have at least 12 consoles of various generations that get regularly gamed. The retro visuals remind you of the games like Outrun but it just felt soulless on the PS4, got it included with ps+. Played once and uninstalled.

Music is the bomb, it's written by Barry Leitch (of Lotus II Amiga and Top Gear SNES fame).

A mobile version of Horizon Chase is free to try on Android and iOS:
apps.apple.com/gb/…252
play.google.com/sto…_GB

Controller options are more favourable on PC and Switch, natch, but you'll get the flavour from the mobile game. Picked it up on PC for $6.99 last January and enjoyed it a lot. Mostly been Todd Landers-ing the fastest lap time boards against a Steam friend.

Strong recommend here, but you might as well try mobile and get an idea whether the console version is for you.

Was looking through the sale and Black Paradox and Super Blood Hockey seem like decent games.

Also hexagroove too, but still too pricey I reckon
Horses for courses. I think this is excellent its my most played racer on the switch....my much younger boys most played racer is Grid....(Mario Kart excepted of course)

Anyone that liked old school sprite based racers in the 16 bit era definitely needs to get this.
Quality racer, need nerves and reaction.

Fun when competing with others too.
Great game. A lot of people saying it's brilliant in handheld. Well I can confirm its also brilliant on my 55" 4k tv
If you're on the fence you could always try it for free on

Android:
play.google.com/sto…ase

Or on iOS:
apps.apple.com/gb/…252

I have it on the Switch and think it should've been free to play with IAPs like Asphalt 9. I've played 4 player split screen and my mates were less than impressed, even with the great retro soundtrack.
