  • OK, so since I’m a huge fan of the TRON universe and movies at first the neon-lit look of this game had my attention. Even half-way into the first race any excitement I had completely evaporated unfortunately as it committed a pretty horrific sin in the world of racing games… its controls are over-sensitive and pretty outright terrible. Whether you try to play with the analog stick (sorry, no analog control and your car will turn pretty hard with even a small nudge of the stick) or the D-pad the situation isn’t a good one and while you can try to feather the throttle or employ the handbrake nothing really makes it better. I hoped that maybe there’d be a slider for the sensitivity in the options but unfortunately those hopes were dashed quickly when there proved to be no way to adjust anything like that so I was stuck. Outside of the horrendous controls perhaps the racing is middling, borrowing the color-changing and boosting concept from the likes of Fast RMX and some others, but generally just having a very no-frills presentation and quality of gameplay. Among the racers I’ve played on the Switch there have been some real stinkers but while this may look a bit better than some on the list the control issues really nullify any reason to be excited about this one.
