Hotshot Racing is a refreshing blast of retro-arcade racing action. Every inch of each course is filled with personality, from fans waving on the sidelines to dinosaurs wandering through jungles and caves. The racers don’t come out quite so well but you spend most of the time looking at a car rather than the person driving it, so thankfully that’s not too much of a problem.
Hotshot Racing is an enjoyable racing game that will almost certainly be enjoyed by its target audience. There isn't much content, though, and it's an extremely basic, simple game that will be extremely familiar to anyone who played racers during the 90s.
As an homage to classic racers, Hotshot Racing provides some fun and frantic arcade racing, full of drifts and boosting. It looks lovely, with its colourful, low-poly visuals and its sound design brings back memories of Nineties arcades. Retro fans will probably love it, but most will likely be a little frustrated by its sometimes race-ruining AI and the rather slight amount of content available.
