What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Fastlane: Road to Revenge is an arcade car combat game that has players using a variety of guns to destroy other cars. But while there are explosions, you never see the drivers, and there's no blood or gore. There's also no inappropriate content, though one character does use the word "pimp" as a verb, and a woman displays some cleavage. Also, while there's no cursing in the dialog, players can use any profanity as their names, which appears in their game and other people's, though you can change them easily. Players can also spend real-world money or watch ads to earn in-game credits, which are then used to buy or upgrade cars and weapons, as well as to keep playing when you crash. Read the app's privacy policy in the shopping section of the game, or on the game's website, to find out about the information collected and shared.

What's it about?

In FASTLANE: ROAD TO REVENGE, you're trying to clean up the city streets by, uh, destroying every car on the highway? Really? Okay, so yeah, you drive fast and use mounted machine guns to destroy ever car, truck, and gas-carrying 18-wheeler on the highway, while avoiding barricades and other obstacles that come your way. 

Is it any good?

Like a relentless version of the classic arcade game Spy Hunter, this car combat game will satisfy your love of shooting and your need for speed. In Fastlane: Road to Revenge, you drive a muscle car that comes with machine guns and other weapons as standard equipment. As you drive the highway, you have to gun down any and all enemy cars, trucks, 18-wheeler gas trucks, even ambulances. You even, after a bit, have an armed drone following you around as well, and get to briefly pilot an attack helicopter. Even cooler, when your enemies explode, and they will, they drop money and power-ups, with the former going to the slush fund you use to buy better cars and weapons, as well as to improve the ones you already own. All of which is done with the touch of a single finger, which not only causes your car to move, but to shoot an endless stream of bullets as well. The game ever cleverly pauses when you take your finger off the screen. The hope is that you'll go further and further every time, as you avoid lane-blocking obstacles, enemies who shoot back, and cars that will damage yours when you crash into them. All of which makes Fastlane: Road to Revenge a fun and engaging arcade car combat game that will keep fans of vehicular manslaughter entertained for days.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about violence in video games. Does it make you feel differently about the violence in the game given that it's against cars and thus there's no blood or gore?

  • Talk about driving safety. What does this game show you about why its importantly to follow the rules of the road, especially speed limits?

  • Discuss spending money. Given that you can earn in-game money by playing or watching ads, does it make sense to spend money on this game? Or, more exactly, does it make sense to spend a lot of money on this game, when spending a little will still help the developers pay their rent?
