Xenon Racer harks back to the simpler days of arcade racing. It includes all one might need and expect from a game of its genre. Buts it starts to choke thanks to a compromised handling of the vehicle. The races are unappealing, despite you being in a drop-dead set of wheels.
Speaking of which, many of the races take far too long which sucks a lot of fun out of the equation as you'll either be ahead of the pack and just go through the motions for 5 minutes until you win or you'll be so far behind that you'll have no hope in catching up. There's rarely a middle ground where you find yourself in a heated match with your opponents which is something that Ridge Racer perfected decades ago so there's no excuse.
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.
