One day while looking over on the Xbox One store I came across this quirky looking mobility scooter racer, so of course I took to my email and told the devs at Milky Tea Studios that I needed this game in my life. Thankfully they got back in touch and here I am now giving you my thoughts on it.
The story goes that the Grim Reaper decides to move into the suburban retirement village known as Sunny pines, a lovely place where the old come to enjoy there final few years of the long hard life they have had. Once Grim shows up he pays each of the seven available characters a visit one night to tell them he shall be back for their souls in three days time. Not happy at all about this the seven decide to challenge Mr Death to a racing competition, with only one person left standing by the end of it all. Grim also likes bringing these losers back from the dead in zombie like form to join his undead army.
This part of the game is spread over five section and features thirteen races for you to play through. Upon ending a section one character will sadly be taken by Mr Grim, with a lovely graveyard cut-scene kicking in to show you which poor character has moved on. What I got coming out of this portion of the game sadly.......well was nothing really, as before I could get to enjoy it I found it was over with and finished. The story will take you I say around thirty minutes at a push to finish it all up, and none of the races will offer you that much of a challenge in regards to coming first. The only times I didn't come first were one time the game bugged out and saw my character steering hard left constantly no matter how hard I pushed right. The second time was when I got stuck behind a tiny bit of fencing. While this portion of the game is short however, I would be lying if I sad no fun was had by me while playing through it, as what's not funny about riding around as a old person on a mobility scooter.
+ Fun while it lasts
+ Offers more to those who enjoy local play
+ Easy 1000 gamerscore for achieve hunters (expect grinding out on weapon achieves)
- Short story lets it down
- Other modes available are soon forgot about and dull
- The controls can feel very light and airy for the first few goes, but you will get used to it
