First Impressions - FAST RMX

Available on Nintendo Switch





The Game
If you miss the futuristic racers of the past then this game might just be up your ally. The FAST series is one of those game series that can be really fun, frustrating and satisfying all at the same time. If you played FAST Racing NEO on the Wii U, then you know how this game plays and the types of vehicles involved. Going fast in this game is an understatement. There is a large assortment of tracks that in all honesty can take a few times to get the used to. There are also different game modes to look forward to as well. There is also couch as well as online multiplayer. You have probably heard many a reviewer on YouTube or review site claim that this game can scratch that F-Zero itch and I agree with them. This is a challenging racer that looks great and sounds awesome.



The GamePlay
It's a racing game and there really isn't much more to it than that. With that being said, there is some strategy to be had in this game. To say that the game revolves around speed would be an honest observation. However, if you want to win knowing when to boost is just as important. Collecting orbs to fill up your boost meter is key to winning. The last thing you want is to try to boost with a quarter of your meter left. Everyone has different strategies so you just have to find one that works for your particular play style.




Final Thoughts
The game is a truly fun racer when you get right down to it. If racing games are your thing, I think this title is a good investment. Gamers will be challenged in this game, make no mistake about that but there is a lot of fun to be had with this title as well. Also I played this game in portable mode and it plays just as smoothly as it does in the dock. All in all I say Shin'en has done a great job with this game. Have you picked this one up for the Switch? What do you think about it? Let me know in the comments and as always thanks for reading. Until next time.
