    Onrush is a racing game that strips away the commonly understood mechanics of the genre to deliver something that is both fresh and classic at the same time. And a vivacious multiplayer experience that rivals some of the big contemporary shooters of the day.

    While its future is not set in stone, what Onrush brings to the table right now is a highly refreshing take on team-based vehicular mayhem complete with vibrant visual flair and a thumping soundtrack.

    An innovative arcade racer that is highly entertaining, both offline and online. The singleplayer will entertain you for a long time to come and the online component is an adrenaline-fueled funfest. Codemasters delivers a fresh arcade experience that dares to be different and that in itself is remarkable. Even though there are some minor gripes Onrush remains a very capable, fun and innovative racer at its core. Recommended.

    Onrush feels slow to start but once you dive in it can be addictive to play. With fast-paced, high-intensity encounters, a gamers competitive nature will quickly take over in this skill-based game of road rage and crazy tricks.

    ONRUSH is an arcade like any other. However, although it is totally fun, its formula and modes tends to be repetitive after a few hours.

    Onrush is totally fun at first but after a few hours the enthusiasm fades away. The game lacks of in depth mechanics, something that is essential to keep players on the servers in a multiplayer-based experience.

I can see this being a very deep game tactically. Expand

    Onrush is an absolute ride and a half. Not your typical racer, many game modes change it up. Very much like Burnout but without the race. YourOnrush is an absolute ride and a half. Not your typical racer, many game modes change it up. Very much like Burnout but without the race. Your race is like an online FPS. You have different game modes, achieve the most points, king of the hill type mode and others there is a lot of choices. Talking about choice, you get a lot of customization in this so no car is the same. While the graphics aren't the greatest it's a whole heck of fun. Expand

    OnRush – a new twist on the driving game genre. Not a racer at all. Part King of the Hill, part death match, part survival – if you go intoOnRush – a new twist on the driving game genre. Not a racer at all. Part King of the Hill, part death match, part survival – if you go into this expecting a racer, you will come out of it disappointed. It took me several hours to adjust to this way of thinking, but when it clicked, the enjoyment multiplied exponentially.
    Knowing when to take the risk and slam into an opponent to capture the zone or gate, or perhaps take out one of their last remaining cars, or knowing when to pull off that front flip to earn the extra boost – these things take lots of good judgement and a whole heap of guts.
    The solo campaign is over 10 hours long if you want to ace it and get the max ranking on all courses – some of the later stages have side tasks which are VERY difficult, ensuring you return to the campaign time and time again.
    Online is where OnRush excels. The team play is superb. Never has there been such emphasis on team play in a vehicular game as there is in OnRush.
    There’s a tonne of unlockables, including cute Micro Machines retro throwback ones, a delight to any retro gamer. The accompanying soundtrack is a delight too, from UK Hip Hop (Roots Manuva) to Dubstep and everything in between. The in game sound design is wonderful too – very well done transitions when you crash out of the game.
    Most impressive are the graphics. Whilst not as realistic as the latest batch of racers and the like, this excels in ability. Having +20 vehicles on screen at the same time, all causing chaos, whilst the snow is battering down, with explosions and dust flying all around, all at a solid 60fps is absolutely incredible.
    Well done Codies/Evo. Amazing.

    Excellent and fun idea that needs a lot of fixes before it can keep me playing. All the problems with balancing not just for the cars but theExcellent and fun idea that needs a lot of fixes before it can keep me playing. All the problems with balancing not just for the cars but the game modes themselves have frustrated me more than been fun. Level 45 in full game. 40 somethin in Beta. Love the game. It still needs work. Once the first fun impression is past, the game is more frustrating than fun. Expand
