Initial impressions or expectation can be a tricky thing, but usually not so much when it comes to a racing game. Where that age old Ricky Bobby mantra of "if you're not first, you're last" mostly rings true. ONRUSH from Codemasters does things a little different, with combat and a very different approach to racing.
As our resident racing car bed owner Adrian Haas found out in his review.
What we have in Onrush is not so much a racing game but something more along the lines of vehicular team deathmatch. But, not in a cool open map environment ala Carmageddon. In Onrush, you're racing around a 'track' alongside teammates and enemy vehicles, accruing points by beating the other team in four nominally different modes that, in the end, boils down to forcing them to crash. This can be accomplished by ramming your opponents into obstacles or walls, jumping then landing on top of them, hitting them hard enough to explode, and so on.
