Pros: Car customization
Cons: Everything else
I purchased Penny Racers because of the hype that you could customize your car. That's about all I got.
For a game this simple, I was surprised how HARD it was.
It took me a while to learn how to turn. As small as the cars are, turning was difficult. When you make a turn, you have to press R while turning, and your car will flip and turn 90 degrees.
Game modes: (2/5)
There were basically two game modes. They were not done very well.
The mission-based mode was for 1 or 2 players: to beat the nine available tracks in different classes.
The multiplayer mode was very boring. For 2 players, you have the choice of competing with the available tracks (or a created track). For 3 or 4 players, you have to create a track.
The sound was decent. There were about 4 or 5 different soundtracks, designed for specific levels.
The graphics were not good! The cars, though tiny, should be able to turn a lot easier.
I would like to be able to use more than one weapon at a time. You have to buy weapons, by the points you have. When you have one weapon, that's the only weapon you can use in the match. And, you get very few of the weapon.
Track editor: (2/5)
The idea was good, but it should have been much better. The tracks end up looking two-dimensional at times, and boring.
Customization of cars: (3.5/5)
The good part is you can customize your car. From engines, tires, a weapon, suspension (or spoiler), and looks, you have enough to customize.
Replay value: (1/5)
After a few hours, most people would give up. I managed to brave it out long enough to beat class AA, and then quit.
Try another racing game.
