Within the last month, some amazing racing games have released. It’s been something of a micro-renaissance. These games — Wreckfest, Danger Zone 2 and Onrush — succeed because they avoid more serious-minded gear-grinding in favour of going fast and crashing loud.

While there’s joy to be had in examining a 1958 Aston Martin DBR1 up close in Forza Motorsport 7, these recent games aim for the platonic idea of cars many of us had as children. Fast, smashy and bright.


Onrush is a new online team-based tactical arcade action racing game. Think of it as Overwatch with cars. It's by a new studio at Codemasters, made up of developers who worked on Driveclub and Motorstorm, so maybe a better name would be Motorwatch. If you want more lines like that, please watch my video.
