Mini Motor Racing X is a virtual reality (VR) racing game, developed by The Binary Mill, who also created “Gun Club VR”, “Gun Club 3: Virtual Weapon Sim and “Gun Club Armory”. This exciting game brings players into the world of RC cars where they can customize, upgrade, and race their way to the top.
With four huge championships, stunning tracks, and four different upgradeable stats, Mini Motor Racing X offers an intense and realistic simulation of driving an RC car. The Deluxe version provides an extra car theme and in-game cash to further enhance the experience.
Mini Motor Racing X offers a range of gameplay options that provide an enjoyable experience for players.
The game features RC cars with four different upgradeable stats, as well as race customization, upgrades, and camera options.
What we didn`t like was that the difficulty barely increased throughout the game, and the Type X mode’s weapon system was strange and ineffective.
Playing with friends online enhances the overall experience, but the lack of challenge and variety can still make the game monotonous and unenjoyable.
Mini Motor Racing X also offers an engaging and fun multiplayer mode that allows players to race with friends or other players.
Players can collaborate to make cooperative racing strategies and dominate the competition by outsmarting opponents with unique strategies in order to win.
Multiplayer races can be intense and require a lot of skill in order to succeed.
Players can use different vehicles with distinct characteristics and special abilities to gain an edge over their rivals.
Players can also use in-game currency to purchase new vehicles and upgrades, allowing for a customized and unique approach to each race.
Graphics and Visuals
Experiencing Mini Motor Racing X with its high-resolution graphics and realistic models of cars and environments is an immersive experience. The detailed visuals, such as dynamic weather effects and sun reflections, add a heightened sense of realism.
The driving experience is made more immersive with various camera angles and vantage points, allowing for a unique perspective of the race from high up. I’m also able to control an air balloon to navigate the tracks and interact with other players.
The attention to detail in the graphics is impressive, with interactive elements like dog models that add life to the environment. Mini Motor Racing X truly brings the race to life with its stunning visuals.
Despite the various gameplay options available in Mini Motor Racing X, the lack of challenge and variety can still pose a major challenge to players. Initial races lack opponents, making it less challenging, and the difficulty barely increases throughout the game.
The Type X mode’s weapon system is weird, with a limited variety in weapons that include a wrench, tornado, landmine, missile, and shield. This can make grinding through numerous easy races monotonous.
Playing with friends online can enhance the experience, but the game still has some issues that need addressing.
Players can choose the Deluxe Edition of Mini Motor Racing X to get an extra car theme and in-game cash for a small additional fee. However, the value of the deluxe version is questionable as the extra content is minimal.
The only addition is a DeLorean car, which may not be worth the extra money for some players. Therefore, it is important to consider the value of the Deluxe Edition before purchasing. Players should weigh the pros and cons of spending more money to get an extra car theme and in-game cash versus staying with the original version.
Reception and Final Verdict
Overall, the game received a warm reception from the audience. Mini Motor Racing X has 9/10 rating on Steam and has very positive feedback from more than 180 players.
Playing with friends online enhances the overall experience, and the four-player version of Rocket League called Bumper Ball is chaotic and fun.
We recommend testing it with friends, as the multiplayer experience can be entertaining.
Mini Motor Racing X is an engaging and immersive virtual reality racing experience for players. With four huge championships, stunning tracks, and four upgradable stats, the game offers hours of intense and realistic gameplay.
Additionally, the Deluxe edition provides an extra car theme and in-game cash to further enhance the experience.
