Gear.Club Unlimited [SWITCH XCI]
Gear.Club Unlimited is a highly entertaining racing game that sits firmly at the casual end of the realistic racer spectrum. It can be a thrillingly immediate experience, particularly on the go, where you can blast through one of its sweeping courses in just a minute or so.Technically Gear.Club Unlimited is a solid runner, if a little plain. The car models are all detailed and sufficiently shiny, while the action moves smoothly even with a dozen or so cars on screen at once. But there are also some ugly background textures, like the lakes and buildings of some of the European stages. There were also a few unusual sound bugs in our pre-release build, but these will hopefully be eradicated in the promised day one patch.Even without knowledge of Gear.Club’s past, it would be glaringly obvious that this was all constructed with a free-to-play system in mind. While the virtual currency flows far more freely in this premium version, however, we can’t help thinking that it would have been better to scrap the convoluted upgrade system and install a streamlined alternative in its place.
As it stands, upgrading your car feels both arbitrary and fiddly. Meanwhile, a UI that sees you moving a cursor to navigate a scrolling map feels like another vestigial mobile limb that should ideally have been lopped off.
Switch owners hoping for a Gran Turismo or a Forza to call their own will have to wait a little longer, however. What was a commendably rounded console-like racer on mobile seems just a little bit lightweight on Switch, while a few ill-fitting parts have survived the console rebuild.
