Split/Second • Trigger your first Level 2 Power Play • 5G • 59.47% of gamers unlocked this
There’s an old office joke that usually does the rounds whenever anyone returns from holiday, and it is, simply, that the person who has just been on leave states that they need to come ‘back to work for a rest.’
Of course, that’s exactly what I feel like – having spent the best part of 6-7 hours driving a car today, my back feels like it’s about to crumble underneath me while my eyelids are heavy and willing me to go to sleep. So, of course, it seems fitting that I take my passion for motor vehicles and play a game that involves, apparently, blowing them up.
Truth be told, I’m not quite sure what Split/Second is yet, I can’t work out if there’s some thematic ‘you’re making a movie, kid’ narrative behind everything, or if it’s just a series of isolated events – whatever it is, the first few games I played tonight essentially amounted to … well, a race. There are some power ups and stuff, sure, but the gist of the exercise was to get around the track faster than everyone else.
I didn’t, and came in third.
Nonetheless, it was enough for me to try a few power ups during the level, and unlock a few achievements. I suspect I would have unlocked a few more if I had of won, but there’s always tomorrow, or the next day, or the day after that (etc.) to try!
