Trailblazers is has well defined visuals and plays great, with an interesting mechanic that unfortunately doesn’t support the weight of a full game. Had the paint mechanic been merely one element in a grander design, things may have turned out differently. As it is, Trailblazers stands as a great proof of concept for what may hopefully evolve into a deeper title in later releases down the road.
Overall, Trailblazers tries to do a lot, and stalls on just about everything. The handling is a bit rubbish, progression is underwhelming, and the snippets of story you're granted aren't interesting enough to keep you pushing on. It's a real shame, because it looks marvellous, and on paper it sounds brilliant. It's just unfortunate that the execution didn't quite pan out.
Trailblazers successfully sets itself apart from others in the same genre, especially as the Nintendo Switch marketplace is full of crazy racing games. While it is evident that the soundtrack and art style are somewhat borrowed, they have been churned into a product that is new, refreshing and unique, blazing itself a trail all of its own.
