SuperTuxKart Editor's Review

SuperTuxKart is an Open Source Arcade racing game.

This game is a port from Linux. It uses the OpenGL as the rendering engine. A decent video card is required in order to play this game in good conditions.

SuperTuxKart brings you game modes like Grand Prix, Quick Race, and Time Trial, in single player mode. It has a multiplayer mode with up to four players that uses the split screen method.

The number of tracks is decent for a game like this. Some of them can be a real challenge even for experienced players of this type of games. Besides the track, you can also pick your favorite character that you would use for the race.

The interesting part of this game is the possibility to pick up bonuses that can give you advantages over your overseers. You can pick up bonuses like: smart missiles, missiles, bombs, speed boost, and things that can slow down your enemies.

Starting with this version the producers made the game-play more annoying for some cases. Leaving the track makes you slower. This should be a good thing because this forces the players not to cutoff the track, but in fact leaving the track almost stops you.

Pluses: it's free and it can kill some spare time. Starting with this version the producers implemented a screen resolution option and the possibility to run it in fullscreen mode. It also has more tracks than the previous version.

Drawbacks / flaws: the controls are not very precise and they usually stop working well, the collision with walls or your enemies stops you. The collision with your enemies stops the one who is in the back.

In conclusion: the idea of this game is pretty good but the producers should work a little bit more on the graphics side. I wouldn't hurt also to improve the game-play. Since it's arcade, you shouldn't expect realistic effects, but the collisions with the enemies are unfair for the one who's left in the back. This makes the whole thing easier for the one who's in the front. Sometimes an overtake can be quite a pain in the back.
