Though it's simple and old school in its approach, this arcade-style racing game will appeal to race fans of all ages. Like other racing games, BAFL – Brakes Are for Losers has you driving a variety of cars in multi-lap races. Except that this has a cartoony, arcade-like approach, is played from an aerial perspective, and your car, well ... to put it simply: YOU HAVE NO BRAKES. Instead, you simply have to aim your car using the left thumbstick and watch it go.
There is, of course, a bit more to this racer. For instance, you have to contend with hazards such as vision-impairing fog and pirates who shoot cannonballs. There are also pickups that will enable you to hit every other car with a bomb or fix the damage your car sustained when someone else hits it with a power-up. But while there's a lot of simple fun to be had here, BAFL does have some minor issues. For starters, when playing solo on the Switch, you might want to use it as a handheld, because it can be hard to see which tiny car is yours, even on a big TV. It's also way too easy to accidentally pull in for a pit stop, which slows your progress and can accidentally lose you a race. But with a little practice, and a lot of luck, BAFL – Brakes Are for Losers will have you scooting around this arcade-y racing game like an Indy 500 veteran.
