    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.

    Though it is capable of annoying at times, Onrush is hands down a brilliant arcade racer. It's a constant assault on your senses, and thanks to its stellar track design and energetic gameplay you can't help but keep going back for more.

    Even after hours of play, Onrush remains wonderfully difficult to classify. The stomach-churning drops of Hydro Thunder. The insane crashes of Burnout. The combo system and radical attitude of SSX. The nail-biting cooperative multiplayer mayhem of Overwatch. It’s a recipe that probably shouldn’t work as well as it does, and despite a steep learning curve, it creates what feels like the next evolutionary step in driving games. Or, at the very least, the initial iterative lurch toward a completely new genre.

    There are things that could be improved, like the excruciating respawn times, as well as some things that feel too difficult just for the sake of it. Pre-release is also never a time to get a proper feel for online multiplayer, so hopefully it doesn't fall apart there. None of this takes away from the enjoyment of playing ONRUSH as a single player. I hope it remains supported with additional content because it's a game I'd love to keep playing.

    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.

    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.

    Onrush is an arcade racer that’s less about racing and more about car combat.
    This isn’t every racer for themselves, this game is all about team work.
    In onrush you can choose your own character, all with different skins and you race through an 8 hour long campaign with your 8 different vehicles all of which have their own skins as well, really making your arsenal of vehicles feel yours.
    There is no customizing or tuning outside of this.. as again this isn’t about racing this is about combat in team based modes.. this game features 12 different tracks that can be played at different times of the day and at different seasons, all of which are decently designed.. nothing really memorable here though
    but you go through a 6 v 6 match out of 4 possible match types,
    Theres overdrive , which is a score chasing mode, you get points by doing tricks, driving fast, and taking enemies down, and youre able to drive fast with the boost you collect by hitting jumps, doing tricks, take downs and pick ups.. theres countdown mode where your teams are driving through checkpoints trying to keep the timer going, lockdown where you’re trying to stay in a zone with the most amount of team members for 5 seconds to win a round, and my least favorite of the modes switch, where everyone has 4 lives.. but for some reason they decided to let your team stay in after all lives are lost really dragging this match type out longer than it needs to be…
    to spice the gameplay up there are again 8 different vehicles all with their own unique balance of offense and defense, some will drop boost for teammates to pick up, others can offer a shield, some will drain boost.. leave a smoke cloud behind while on rush is activated, which Is done by filling a meter by boosting…
    thanks to this mix of abilities by the different vehicles types this offers different strategy for different match types…
    And you can play these matches in campaign as well as online which match and ranked…
    as you play youll earn xp to level up which will give you a box of cosmetic items with different rarities each time… cosmetics can also be earned with cash earned from completing matches and challenges..
    all of this looks and sounds great..
    But onrush just wasn’t fun to me…
    I got no thrill out of just being a cog in the machine team, no matter what mode it was I felt like I was just going through the motions of fill up my boost, get some take downs, while occasionally having to drive through some gates, the strategy is offered but completely unnecessary…
    one bad person cant ruin a team which is good.. but one good person cant make a team either..
    which makes this competitive play just feel pointless…
    Onrush is a great looking game with a great soundtrack
    but the experience is so numbing…
    I stopped having fun once the tutorial was over and I got to experience the actual game.
    crashing is ridiculously easy, respawns take forever.
    its just not fun.
    I give Onrush
    a 5.5/10

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
