While the penalty for running in to things feels too stiff, the annoyance strangely merges with the overall arcade pastiche of Horizon Chase Turbo to feel more appropriate than unfair, and the variety of great things this arcade racer does far outshine the bad. A must for classic gaming fans.

It looks and sounds good but lacks any memorable locations or tracks and it straddles an odd balance between pure arcade racer and pseudo-simulation, with its use of refuelling and permanent upgrades. And yet I finished the World Tour mode, knocked out some tournaments ready to write this review, but still find myself booting it up for the odd fifteen minutes and still thinking about how I’d like to chase a first place in every race. I’m obviously chasing something along with the developers.

All in all, Horizon Chase Turbo is a great title for all gamers suffering from the acute nostalgia, as well as for those others who wish to test their driving proves with a true retro-styled no holds barred arcade racer.

This is not something I usually do with racing games. I kind of wish online multiplayer was in here (it does have persistent global and friend leaderboards), but it’s a small price to pay for this lovely package. Horizon Chase Turbo was a very pleasant surprise--go play it.

Being an arcade game, Horizon Chase Turbo is definitely a must-play for those who reminisce about the good old days. It is basically your favorite retro racing game with enhanced graphics and better sound effects. The soundtrack is akin to what theme songs were like from classic games, but with an improvement in variety and quality.

If you’ve been craving an arcade racer for your Switch, look no further. Horizon Chase Turbo is a hugely enjoyable love letter to a gaming era when the cars were fast, the music was catchy, the action was smooth and the sky was bluer than an Eddie Murphy stand-up routine. Its enormous selection of tracks, addictive World Tour mode and excellent local multiplayer make it an absolute must-have for anyone even remotely interested in the genre.

Horizon Chase Turbo is a slick, polished, pulsating love-letter to the arcade racing games of yesteryear. It's just a shame that in a genre known best for what felt like endless rolling roads, what's on offer here – thanks to its transition to tracks and unlock-to-progress mechanics – feels rather more repetitive in comparison.

With so many different inspirations this could’ve just been a mechanical exercise in trying to trigger childhood memories, like the racing game equivalent of Ready Player One. But the game is a more general pastiche of both the genre and an entire era of gaming, from the gameplay to the neon sharp 90s colour scheme. It’s not a flawless game but it is a near flawless evocation of a moment in gaming’s history that is in increasing danger of being forgotten.

All in all, Horizon Chase Turbo doesn't bring too many new ideas to the table, but what it does offer is an extensive and frequently electric play on the 90's arcade racer. It's a mostly successful melding of the old and the new that has the potential to captivate, challenge, and excite players for hours on end.

Horizon Chase Turbo is chocked full of cars and tracks, and numerous variations on all of the above. Not only does the Brazilian developer Aquiris bring quantity, but it also brings impeccable quality. This high-level slew of content, finesse and masterful, fast-paced racing, perfectly captures the true essence of any racing title. Anyone looking for a racer on the Nintendo Switch, should automatically consider this without any hesitation.

If you’re a super-serious racing fan, then Horizon Chase Tubro might come off as being a bit too simplistic. But, I think it strikes a good balance between having a fun arcade feel with some challenging aspects also being present in order to keep you coming back again and again. As stated, I find the Switch version to be the best suited for the task. Thus, I’d arguably consider it to be the definitive version of the game just for the sake of being able to play it at any time.

Numa era de revivalismos, Horizon Chase Turbo consegue atingir um bom equilíbrio entre jogabilidade “arcade”, visuais retro e contemporaneidade. Não é perfeito, nomeadamente na IA dos adversários, mas os aficionados da velocidade descomplexada terão aqui uma proposta de qualidade que irá garantir horas e horas de vício.
