BlazeRush Review

Test BlazeRush
Apr 03, 2024

Developed by Targem Games, BlazeRush is an isometric-view arcade racer in which multiple players can compete on the same screen. BlazeRush was released in 2014 on PC and Console, so it's not a recent game. Let's find out if, despite its age, this single-player and multiplayer game is still a good choice.

In BlazeRush you'll control a vehicle from the air in a dynamic race in which you'll have to avoid running off the road, other vehicles and obstacles. You'll be able to destroy crates in order to obtain weapons and bonuses that will give you the upper hand in the race.


The gameplay is relatively classic for the genre, and the controls are easy to learn. To accelerate, simply push the joystick in the direction you want to go. Once you've obtained a weapon or a bonus, all you have to do is press a button. These simplistic controls make it easy to integrate friends and family into the game. BlazeRush's gameplay and ease of use make it a good candidate as a party game.

During your games, your vehicle will take a lot of punishment from the speed, the track and the various weapons and obstacles. In a very short space of time, you can lose your first place and be spinning all over the place. The dynamism of the game makes for well-balanced racing. The camera, too, works to the disadvantage of the front-runner, off-center when he's too far ahead of the rear.

Début d'une course

Although the game is dynamic, you shouldn't easily find yourself going against the grain. It's clear that a lot of work has been put in by the developer to ensure that even the most inexperienced drivers can still manage it. In cases where your vehicle is really off-course, the game will teleport you straight back onto the track in the right direction.

BlazeRush can be played in multiplayer or single-player mode. The single-player campaign is made up of several types of race that are relatively common in the genre, such as standard races and time trials. There's also a type of race in which a steamroller takes on the player furthest behind, and another that rewards you for staying in first place longer than the others. DLC is available, but we haven't played with it to give you more information.

An internal trophy system based on race challenges will unlock new tracks, vehicles and characters.


For multiplayer mode, you'll be able to join online races if you manage to get lucky enough to find connected players. As the game is not new, you'll probably need to organize events to find other players. The game offers local multiplayer, which is a lot more fun and allows up to four players on the same screen.


We've got our hands on the PlayStation 4 version, and despite its good gameplay, the graphics are rather poor and the visual environment and animation are very sparse. On the other hand, this flaw has the advantage of allowing the title to be played on weaker configurations without any problems.


Fair enough
BlazeRush is an easy-to-learn isometric racing game. On the whole, it's a pleasure to play, even if it doesn't make video game history. Local multiplayer is the title's big plus, allowing you to quickly integrate 4 players on the same screen.
