Xenon Racer has some good intentions and neat ideas, but it feels too much like a rushed and unfinished product. Its controls are stiff, its drifting mechanics are hard to learn, its sound design is glitchy, and its framerate is far from ideal for a futuristic racing game promoting the sensation of neck-breaking speeds. The game might look unique, but there are much better options out there if you’re looking for a futuristic racer.
Had Xenon Racer been a game released at a budget price, many of its issues could have maybe been overlooked, but anyone playing full price for it is likely to be disappointed by its offerings. Ultimately, while Xenon Racer‘s initially frustrating difficulty barrier can be overcome, its blurry visuals, brief campaign and awful announcer take the shine off of the whole experience.
Xenon Racer is made for those who have laser focus and dedication to nailing every detail. The sleek design and flow of the game are constantly disrupted by either the constant destruction of your own car or the jerky stop-and-go you must embrace to make tight turns, which are a necessity. It's certainly playable, but it's vexing and not recommended for the casual player. While the visuals shine in some respects, as a whole, they don't muster much more than a passing glance and a shrug. The game plays with ideas from the racing genre, but nothing quite sticks to make it a memorable experience.
