Today, we are going to look into a new release that we played on Xbox 360 called Split/Second. It is an arcade racing game with a fairly interesting twist. Everything blows up. In an age of remakes and sequels eating up both the movie and video game markets this game has a fairly original concept, with a very simple premise, drive fast and try not to die. Players take part in a fictional reality TV show on large scale courses designed to be destroyed. The game play is structured like a television show. There are 12 episodes in a season and each episode has different 'events.' These range from simple races to running from military attack helicopters. There is also a game mode where you have to pass giant Mac Trucks that are tossing exploding barrels at you. The environment is more interactive than anything I have seen in a racing game. To give you an idea of its scale, in one board you can explode the track out from under you only to be put on a runway underneath a crashing B-52 bomber. In another board, you explode a giant CN Tower only to race into it and use it as a jump.
