Racing games come in all shapes and sizes. You can go from the extremely realistic to the utterly outlandish. Recently Rising Star Games has released a new racing game from Super Gonk that is somewhere in the middle. Trailblazers is a high-speed racer that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Trailblazers is a high-speed circuit racing game that offers up a fresh twist on the genre. Instead of having set boosts scattered around the track, you get to create your own. Once you build up a charge, you are able to lay a track of your teams colored paint. Once you hit it the next time around the track, you and your teammates will get a boost once you drive over it. You are even able to blast paint in front of your car to cause your competitors to spin out. You win points by finishing high in the race, and by painting large portions of the track.
You can race against your friends either locally or online. You can even strike up a race with random people online through matchmaking. If you are more interested in racing solo, you can play through the extensive campaign. The campaign features dozens of races across a wide variety of maps – each with 3 specific objectives to complete. This will give you a chance to sample all the tracks and racers. To move through the campaign, you just need to complete one of the objectives in each race to unlock the next one. You can always go back and try to collect any missed objectives.
The graphics in the game are top notch. Each car has a very distinct design, even if they do drive similarly. Colors are bright and vibrant. Not only are the environments colorful, but after a lap or so the track begins to look like a neon Jackson Pollock painting. Of course, you can’t drive without music and this title delivers. The radio will play rocking beats that will keep you grooving as you drift through corners and zip down the straight-aways.
Trailblazers offers a fun and deep racing experience. Solo or with your friends you will have a blast zipping around the track. The game is out now for most systems and will set you back about $30. Don’t worry about the price, there is a lot of gameplay in this title. You will be set for long hours of racing with friends or just by yourself. Whether you are a fan of racing games or just looking for a game to play with your friends, this is a great title to play.
