Hotshot Racing

released on Sep 10, 2020

Hotshot Racing is a blisteringly fast arcade-style racing game fusing drift handling, razor-sharp retro visuals and an incredible sense of speed to create an exhilarating driving experience.

The best way to describe this game is to essentially take Mario Kart and remove the powerups, memorable characters, and well-designed levels. The only thing Hotshot Racing has going on for it is that the driving model itself is okay and the simplistic look fits.


Ganhei todo o gran prix no normal e 2 fases no especialista, o qual é bem difícil.
Segue um estilo padrão de jogos de corrida mais arcade dos anos 90/00, mas poderiam inovar em algo, de diferencial só tem alguns modos de corrida divertidinhos mas que não acrescentam muito no final das contas.
No geral, até que dá para se divertir, mas não é nada memorável ou algo do tipo.


Básicamente un Mario Kart low poly que te retrotrae a los grandes títulos de conducción arcade de los 90 y principios de milenio. Bastante bien.


until st. petersburg, fl gets an arcade with initial d on it i'm going to have to settle for customizing keiko's drift specialty car into looking like the ae86


For better or (mainly) worse, Hotshot Racing goes all in on the aesthetic and looks just like an early 90s arcade racer. Unfortunately there isn't much else on offer - bland track layouts, seriously underwhelming game modes and some very dodgy stereotypes for most of the characters are obvious blemishes, but the rubber-banded AI is probably the worst part of the package.

I don't mind a game keeping things semi-interesting in a race against the computer but the AI just does not let you escape which would be okay if it weren't for the fact that they slow down so hard if you fall even slightly behind.


Really wanted to like this... The low poly visual style, inspired by Virtua Racing, help to clearly understand whats coming ahead which is something that I have trouble with more photorealistic racing games. Its biggest problems are the uninspired tracks (with few exceptions) and music. The tracks vary in four different zones (coast, desert, jungle and mountains) that get boring very quickly.

The Virtua Racing port on the Switch is very good, and would absolutely recommend it over this.
