    ONRUSH is nothing short of remarkable. Its fast-paced and innovative functionality never buckles under the pressure of its constant action-packed personality. This is unlike any other racer available and manages to effortlessly stand out as a result. Its gameplay systems feed into one another exceptionally well, ultimately producing a robust and distinct experience that comes jam-packed with heaps of replay value.

    There may constantly be talk about redefining the racer for a new generation of gamer, but that chatter can now stop as Codemasters have done just that with brilliant effect in ONRUSH. And all by just removing that finish line.

    ONRUSH is a great arcade racing game that scratches so many itches. I wish the single player was a little more drawing and diverse. I also wish some of the modes were a little more exciting, but as a new take on the genre, it feels fantastic. Don’t skip this one, it is a must-play for anyone that enjoys arcade racing.

    The high-octane action is constantly intense. It looks and sounds stunning, especially on the Xbox One X, and it's easy to pick up and play initially but has an added layer of depth thanks to its class-based gameplay that will make it hard to truly master. If you're looking for a standard arcade racer to play alone, it's probably not for you, but if you're looking for something different and have a few friends willing to team up, ONRUSH feels wholly new and chaotically fun.

    A stupidly fun arcade racer that confounded our expectations, Onrush is the perfect game for those seeking something immediate, accessible and effortlessly entertaining.

    ONRUSH is a unique take on a racing game. The game has an easy-to-play, difficult-to-master gameplay that is fun for everyone. It’s a shame that ONRUSH suffers from a lack of game modes and maps, which unfortunately makes it feel repetitive after a while.

    Onrush looks like a racing game, plays almost like a racing game and feels like a racing game. But it’s not a racing game. It’s more of a MOBA game, and this is a cool concept, but it simply doesn’t really work.

    This is so much fun, and so exciting to have such innovation in arcade racing. This is made for eSports.

    Frantic and action-packed racing whilst destroying the environment and the vehicles you’re up against is always a fun and thrilling affair,Frantic and action-packed racing whilst destroying the environment and the vehicles you’re up against is always a fun and thrilling affair, but there’s one problem most game’s that offer this entertainment play out the same way, well that is until now. Whilst ONRUSH offers the same insane action as previous game’s in the genre it also has unique mechanics and these unique settings make the game stand out above the rest of the game’s quite considerably. Obviously the most important aspect in a game like this is its racing and driving elements and thankfully I’m pleased to say they’ve done a wonderful job here. Driving is thrilling from start to finish and the controls that have been implemented remain tight and responsive throughout your time with the game, which is great. The gameplay on the whole is an incredible amount of fun and the replaybility is extremely high because no race or event ever plays out the same way. This is a very good thing because in terms of content there is quite a lot for you to sink your teeth into and the best thing is that the content that’s available to you has a huge amount of variety present so things stay fresh and interesting for a very long time. You will see this variety littered throughout a number of aspects in the game and I must admit that I was very impressed with the tracks in the game. Each track has without a doubt had a lot of thought and effort placed into them and to say racing and smashing into stuff on these fantastic tracks was an incredible amount of fun would be a massive understatement. You will however have to deal with some troubling moments along the way at times though because when the action on the screen gets too frantic it is hard to distinguish what’s happening on the screen, but thankfully this doesn’t cause too much frustration. Instead the frustration mainly comes from how long it takes to respawn after being destroyed. It does take quite a while to get back into the action so I hope they release a patch to make these times dwindle quite a bit. In terms of the presentation side of things the game looks and sounds fantastic. Visually the game has a lot of detail included in it and I was especially impressed with the weather effects that have been implemented. The sound design makes all the right sounds and noises and in the end when both the visuals and sound design combine together you end up having a very immersive experience. At the end of the day ONRUSH is a fantastic and fun-fuelled experience. It’s a game that has managed to get all the important aspects done to perfection and if you like game’s of this ilk then you will find it hard to find a better game out there and in the end it gets a massive recommendation from me.

    This is a fun game. It is funny how many dummies base a game on graphics. Wahhh they look like 10 years ago and such. Truth is I dont care ifThis is a fun game. It is funny how many dummies base a game on graphics. Wahhh they look like 10 years ago and such. Truth is I dont care if it is atari 2600 graphics if a game is fun its fun. This is a game of fun and mayhem. Lots of crashing and smashing. It is just a shame the game didnt catch on. Its a really fun game. But if you are turned off by Muh Grapix then you are pretty sad in life generally. It can be repetitive of course but so are many racing games that fall under this category. Nothing wrong with repetitive game play as long as its fun. This game is fun. Expand

This is not a racing game...it’s a ramming game but without the fun of other combat racers of the past. The graphics are mediocre...this feels like the Fortnite of racing games and that’s not a good thing at all. Expand
