A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
The game's controls are fairly easy to grasp and don't overwhelm the screen, but the courses can be tricky to navigate.
Violence & Scariness
Drivers can drive into oncoming traffic and hit other cars, which is shown in dramatic slow motion. In some races, they're also encouraged to run other racers off of the road.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Race illegal: High Speed 3D is a street racing game that encourages players to ram other vehicles to gain an advantage in the race. That can range from sparks flying as vehicles rub against each other at high speeds to slow motion head-on collisions. The damage done to your car in those collisions impacts its driving ability, so some real-world consequences are demonstrated.
Is It Any Good?
RACE ILLEGAL isn't a bad racing game, per se, but there's nothing notable enough about it that it will excite fans of the genre. It is, in many ways, a paint-by-numbers title, with a forgettable story, lots of lens flare, winding tracks, "edgy" collision models, and slow motion head-on impacts. The graphics aren't overly impressive, though, and the game often feels slow compared to other entries in the category. Whether you're a core racing fan or someone who just dabbles in the games, you can probably find something better.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
