Everyone loves a good racing game. The screeching rubber, the heart-pumping speed, the death-defying stunts. And that’s exactly what we get in Overtorque Stunt Racing. Well, that, and a whole lot more.
Even after loading the game up for the first time, the professional way it presents itself is more than enough to let you know that you’re in for somethign special when it comes to online games. Overtorque Stunt Racing doesn’t only set the bar, it raises it.
Definitely the first thing you’ll notice are the gorgeous graphics. The cars are beautifully rendered, the landscapes are detailed and well-presented, the track is very well modeled, and it all comes together extremely nicely. You won’t find any palette-swapped cars here, they’re all individual models with their own design, contours, and color schemes. The tracks as well look as if they could easily be on a non free-to-play online game and would look right at home on a PC game.
As if having great graphics wasn’t enough, Overtorque Stunt Racing further blows you away with excellent sounds. The music is fast and catchy, the sound effects sound great, and overall everything comes together perfectly. Just about everything has sounds. You’ll hear every screech of your tire, the different sounds of your engine as it changes gear, and even the smashing of your chassis as you fail to do those complicated stunts.
Now, as great as this game looks and as wonderful as it sounds, it won’t go anywhere if you don’t have good control over your car. If you’re familiar with racing games, then you should be right at home here. There are, however, some additional controls to help along the “stunt” portion of Overtorque Stunt Racing. Your arrow keys will control the car while it’s on the asphalt, and the arrow keys with “A” and “D” give you additional control while doing some air time (though the real-world physics of that is questionable at best) which allows you to time and control your stunts. You’ve also got a booster which you can access with the space bar, and you’ll be making liberal use of it at times for the best stunts. You can also hit Shift to brake, and with enough practice you can use this to make some pretty sharp turns, as long as you know what you’re doing.
You’ve also got different game modes, Race, Hot Dog, Interceptor, and Free Roam. You’ll probably be playing Race mode the most often, and that’ll probably be the mode you use to get your cash. Without said cash, you won’t be able to upgrade your ride to its full potential, something that you’ll definitely want to do. Each mode plays very differently, and all are equally enjoyable. Add the fact that the AI is fairly competent, and you’ve got a definite winner of a game.
All in all, Overtorque Stunt Racing is a great game. Even if it’s a casual free-to-play, it should still be able to interest more seasoned racers with its great graphics and excellent gameplay.
