When it comes to racing games, one thing fans can't seem to get enough of is speed, but this racer manages to run out of steam before crossing the finish line. Antigraviator, like other racing games, gives a sense of the world whizzing by in a blur, but it takes that to an extreme new level, pushing the boundaries of what defines speed. From the minute the green light drops and you punch the gas, these sci-fi hoversleds scream down the tracks. Unlike most games that limit your top speed, Antigraviator keeps moving faster and faster. Of course, maintaining control at higher and higher speeds gets to be nearly impossible. And if you rub up against the edge of the track or take a turn too wide, all that velocity you've built quickly vanishes. More impressive than the game's pace is its capability to keep up with that pace. Even cruising at full speed, the framerate is smooth as silk. You'd be in awe of the detail and colors of the world, if they weren't flying by so fast.
Antigraviator has the pedal to the metal when it comes to speed, and it's a lean mean racing machine. Unfortunately, it's that "lean" part where it starts to have engine trouble. Although players can customize their vehicles in a number of ways, none of them actually affect performance. And as far as the cosmetic changes go, no matter what you do, vehicles basically look the same, although with different coats of paint. There's a single-player campaign mode, but there's not much of a "campaign" involved. Instead, it's just a string of races against AI opponents, with the goal of earning money to unlock new tracks and car parts. There's no story at all, and after a while, it feels like you're just going through the motions. If you're going to race, it might as well be against human opponents. At least in those races, there's an extra layer of unpredictability. Antigraviator is much better played with others. Just don't get carried away when you hit the actual roadways.
