There aren’t many games that have you running and gunning, partaking in explosive car chases, and a spot of dogfighting, all as part of the high octane action it delivers. But that’s the case in the fast-paced arcade antics of Speed Limit, which has just sprinted onto Series X|S and Xbox One. It’s going to be tough, swift, and addictive!
Speed Limit will transport you to a pixel world for arcade action that has seldom been seen before, with genres being morphed together for an old school extravaganza. You see, it all kicks off when a scruffy looking stranger hands your character a gun during an otherwise ordinary daily commute. Subsequently, the train ride rapidly descends into chaos and your adrenaline levels are about to go through the roof. The pressure’s on, with reflexes to be tested to their limits.
The most interesting aspect is the fact that the gameplay and perspective completely changes every two stages as you venture into different modes of transport. Starting with side-scrolling shooting on a commuter train, it’ll soon have you top-down racing and even taking to the skies in a fighter jet. While Speed Limit is thrilling, it’s also bloody hard, so expect to die a heck of a lot – like tons, we’re not kidding. To be fair though, the deaths only make the eventual success much sweeter.
