Hot Wheels Unleashed is out in the wild. It's a game we know has been popular among regular readers and punters on the whole, largely because of the IP and how promising it's looked up until here.

So the question then is, has it delivered upon that promise, and will it meet the lofty expectations of its eager potential fans?

Well, that's what reviews are for, right? Here's a snippet from what we took from our time with it:
And while my misgivings here in regards to how it all ties together might sound trivial to readers who haven’t played it, the long and short of it is City Rumble’s presentation and makeup just doesn’t marry with decking out your Basement (more on this shortly) or racing through the mish-mash of backdrops initially on offer -- Skate Park, College, Garage and Skyscraper (under construction) and the aforementioned Basement. All of this impacts the game’s overall hook, or lack thereof.

And thus proof of Unleashed’s whiteboard ideation process, without an eraser, comes to the fore. Nothing, it seems, was off limits in what to offer the player as far as a reason to play is concerned.
