CHAIRCHAIR– Not sure if want

Makes with the working


  • Not only does everything work OOTB it manages a steady 90+ FERPS at the 4K’s.




Shiny / Sounds


  • It’s a good looking game. A lot of work went into the background of each level.
  • All of the playable characters look equally batshit insane.
  • Everyone has three (or so) verbal taunts and that is entertaining …for about three seconds.
  • Mix all that in with, shall we say “memorable” background music and you end up with something that’s a little bit of alright in the SS dept.


  • The voice work, what little there was, was ok
  • I wasn’t really paying attention to the music because I was too focused on getting a good time
  • Yeah, the backgrounds are pretty genius.    Good on them for that.


  • It looks great!
  • The background music got noped, so minus 1 chair.




  • Hope you like the default layout because it’s 2015 and re-mappable controls are BECAUSE FK, YOU! THAT’S WHY!
  • I would cut RageSquid some slack if the layout made the slightest bit of sense.
  • It’s spray-and-pray, at best.
  • However, once you wrap your brain-organ around the default madness, you will find the button mashing responsive.
  • At the end of the day RageSquid released a 2.5D arcade racer with static controls ..and that boggles my mind.


  • Do not, and I repeat do not, put you reset level button right next to your jump button or you’re gonna have a bad time
  • I’m not the guy who usually brings this up, but this game seriously needs the ability to remap controls.  Desperately even


  • It’s 2015 and you’re shipping a game without the ability to rebind controls.
  • I get that, considering how the UI is laid out, you’re targeting consoles.
    • I get that!
    • But SteamOS doesn’t exactly come with standard controller.
    • Let people reassign their buttons!




  • Some of you might wonder why I invested eight hours into a game with busted controls.
  • Simple, multiplayer is FKN amazeballs.
  • It’s 2.5D TrackMania and I couldn’t be happier with it.
  • Simple to learn impossible to master.
  • I was going to give it three chairs but I had a moment the other night on one of the Disco levels.
  • I was placing 2’nd or 3’rd until I managed a near perfect run, beating everyone by a full two seconds.
  • This resulted in me (a grown arse man) standing up and screaming “FK alls yall!”


  • I never really had much expectation for this game going in
  • However, it really does suck you in
  • Like venn said, very much an easy to learn hard to master game
  • It’s really well designed, it’s fun, go buy it!


  • It tickles that side of my brain that wants to be the best.
  • I managed to beat Venn on just about every level I played.
    • Couldn’t for the life of me beat Sandy’s time on the first level , though.
  • As fun as it is, I can’t give it 4 chairs because it simply doesn’t allow people to rebind controls.
