Drive through the underground Racing system with an epic car collection
The game, Static Shift Racing takes place back in the 90s when the streets are unruly and no laws bind the drivers of Static City. The game offers an insight into how the street racing scenario was back in the 90s and it shows with the collection of cars in the game while having the inclusion of some big names, the models of individual cars are straight from the ’90s.
Static Shift Racing’s car list is ever-expanding. Unlock legendary cars from the 80s and 90s, and drive them to the absolute limit. As of the time of writing this review, there are just 5 cars available. However, with the next coming up updates to the game, it can be expected that the game will add more cars to the collection. As stated before each car has different levels of upgrade available in the game, similarly each car has hundreds of customization options, allowing you to build a truly unique car.
Customize your car to your heart’s content
One thing which shines the brightest in the game is the fact that there are many customization options available in the game that the players can choose to opt for. This can be in terms of decals, body parts, engine tuning, and many such features which can make sure that your ride turns out to be the most unique ride among all other players in the game.
The game, Static Shift Racing offers a Need for Speed Underground type vibes where players can roam through the city and pick up challenges all along while testing their skills against real-time players and prying cops on the road. Car customization is the heart of Static Shift Racing. Its in-depth modification options enable you to build and drive the car of your dreams. With every new level you clear up, the more options you keep on unlocking as you go through.
New Color jobs, new rims, new decals, and altogether new rides are available as you keep on progressing through the storyline within the game. Players as they keep progressing down the line can browse an exhaustive catalog of unique modifications from rims, bumpers, side skirts, full-body kits, spoilers, hoods, and so much more. The game offers the players enough options to make their ride different enough from the other riders.
The players can also control what stance the car should have, stances can help improve the air time the car would likely have. Adjustable suspension and camber to empower you to enhance the stance of your car. Stunt points in the game help really well when trying to fill up the Nitros in the game and having a higher suspension and stance can help the players have a good chance of getting the most out of every stunt they undertake.
Tune your car to its maximum limit to kill the competition off
It won’t be a good racing game if there would be no custom engine customization options available to the players. Players could easily get access to multiple engine options along with other performance-related options such as brakes and Nitros which can give a considerable boost to the performance of the car in the game.
In the game, all the updates can be accessed from the in-game garage in the game, where the single upgrades cover every aspect of the upgrades your car will need in terms of performance, each car has a different number of upgrades available, for example, the basic rides at the beginning of the game offer a total of 5 upgrades in the game with each offering a plus 50 points to the overall performance added on the previous count.
Each upgrade in the game does add some additional cool features as well, for example, some fireback animations or additional smoke in the drift animations, as you will keep on progressing down the line, more engine options will be available, and more cool features will be added to your ride along with of course better performance of the car. Leveling up is the only way to move forward in the game as you level up you unlock better upgrades for your ride in terms of performance and there is no substitute for it.
The game is not a pay to win and offers fair competition
The game has got an in-game store through which players can buy in-game resources to purchase better equipment for their ride, but it doesn’t make much difference because not all races are just about speed, many of the races in the game test the driving abilities and most importantly what sort of control drivers have on their rides.
Hence in the game, Static Shift Racing it is not about who has the bigger gun, it is more about who is aiming it. Better practice and better skills can easily overwhelm a faster car with loads of resources and better equipment in the game, thus the game promotes an equal and fair environment with no pressure of spending money in-game.
The game aims to bring the old-school Need For Speed Underground vibes back to mobile devices. Static Shift Racing is still early and doesn’t has many cars to choose from as of the time of writing this review, but that is definitely going to change as the developers have made sure that new cars will be added in the later updates of the game.
The game not only offers a good racing experience but also gives the freedom to the players to explore and discover different secrets and races which are spread all across the city. The rivals are none other than the other real-time players who play the game, this gives a real street racing touch to the game. Static Shift Racing, all in all, does do justice to the title and focuses on all types of races, the classic sprint races, the drags, and the circuits, thus making it a rather complete game for its category.
