About Hotshot Racing

About this game

***Hotshot Racing Big Boss Bundle – Includes Free new DLC!***

 

The Big Boss Bundle brings thrilling DLC to Hotshot Racing for free! New mode Barrel Barrage delivers the most incendiary action yet, while the Boss Level Grand Prix introduces an expanded selection of rapid racetracks.

Hotshot Racing

Hotshot Racing is a blisteringly fast arcade-style racing game fusing drift handling, razor-sharp retro visuals and an incredible sense of speed to create an exhilarating driving experience.

16 racing circuits provide the twists, turns and straights conducive to searingly quick racing. Take in coastal, jungle, alpine and Las Vegas desert environments, with each course modelled with the most vivid colours and blue skies for miles.

Time Trial and Grand Prix modes cater to those who like to compete in classic racing formats, while ‘Cops and Robbers’ and ‘Drive or Explode’ modes offer exhilarating new ways to play.

Each mode is available in single-player, four-player split-screen and eight-player online, while Time Trial is single-player only. Single-player modes run at a blistering 60FPS to deliver one of the fastest depictions of racing possible.

Smash lap records to rise-up the global online leaderboards or download ghost laps to match your racing lines against the very best.

MEET THE HOTSHOTS

Keiko, Xing, Mike, Alexa, Aston, Toshiro, Marcus and Viktor - eight speed addicts that have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of being the greatest racing driver in the world.

CATCH THE DRIFT

Drifting is crucial in Hotshot Racing. Boost charges as the player drifts so maintaining it for as long as possible is vital to preserving maximum speed throughout a race.

DRIVE OR EXPLODE

In this mode each car has a bomb attached to it. Drop below a certain speed and BOOM! The trigger speed gets faster and faster, forcing players to maintain impossibly high speeds.

COPS AND ROBBERS

Robbers evade the cops. Cops catch the robbers, and in doing so convert them to the police side, leading to an exciting test of skill for the surviving criminals.

A WELL NEEDED BOOST

Earn boost by drifting and slipstreaming opponents and unleash a one-shot hit of speed to leave them in your rear view mirror.

"High on speed and low on polygons, Hotshot Racing is a fun, old-school ode to the golden era of early '90s 3D racers."

Fast Pace Arcade Racer
Verified purchase
A very cool fast paced racer similar to old school arcade racers like Cruising USA, Outrun. There is a good amount of single player challenges. In addition, the a.i. is very challenging on higher difficulty modes. This game is worth the money if you enjoy playing single player games.

Pros: + Driving is fun and intuitive + The tracks are varied even if unmemorable Cons: - The online is dead - The AI is awful and can make some races unbearable I only recommend it if you have friends to play it with or if you only seek for some casual and brief offline fun. The AI is the worst part of the game. The rubberbanding is terrible, you'll never get away from your pursuers, which makes it useless to use boosts at any point in the race that isn't the last half of the last lap. During the race, the other cars will act as if you didn't exist, they'll punt you off and execute pit maneuvers on you that'll see you facing the wall. It's infuriating.

Being a mix of Virtual Racing and Daytona, the inspiration in these games - and perhaps a few others - is as vivid as the homage the game pays to the arcade racing machines that have marked our nostalgic memories. Excellent title!

One of the best racing games, definitely worth your time

Hotshot Racing is one of the best and most addictive retro-inspired arcade racers on the market right now. It can be quite difficult at times, especially if you're looking to unlock all the cosmetics, but is definitely worthwhile.

Really nice playing game with excellent low poly graphics. Has a sweet campaign mode with lots of small achievements and due to its rather simplified look it works quiet easily in 4k 60 on many even lower specced PCs.
