Because, after experiencing delays for approximately 2 years due to various reasons, finally this game can be downloaded on Google Play Store, Apple Appstore, and TapTap. There will also be a PC version via steam coming soon. Both the mobile version on android or iOS and the PC version can be downloaded and played for free. Before discussing this game any further, first let's check the device specifications in order to play this game.
CarX Street practically requires a powerful device, even some gamers out there say that this game is a rival to the Genshin Impact game as a heavy game for mobile. This is a reasonable thing since this game offer quite beautiful graphics. For android devices the minimum specifications are android OS version 9 (Pie), Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC, Adreno 618 GPU, and 6GB RAM. For iOS devices, the minimum is iPhone X. While for the PC version is Windows 7, Intel Core i5 4590 CPU, AMD Radeon R9 270 GPU, 4GB RAM. The download size is about 2GB, but it is recommended to prepare up to 10GB in advance.
For those of you who love games like Need for Speed: Underground 2 or Forza Horizon, then this game will be perfect for you. Aside from racing, CarX Street offers a huge open world for you to explore, from a city full of skyscrapers, to a beautiful suburb with trees. Whichever it is, it's still a pleasure for the eyes. CarX Street also adopts a day and night time system, so it can give a different feel and add a realistic impression. When exploring the city, player can take part in existing racing events to upgrade or buy new cars. There is also a PvP (Player vs Player) mode to test the skills between players.
It's not complete if you talk about car racing games without discussing the car. The car in CarX Street is a model that exists in the real world, the details are very good, but the name is spoofed. However, for those of you who love cars, you can definitely recognize what kind of car it is just by looking at it. For audio from the sound of the car engine, as well as various effects such as crashes and others are quite satisfying. The BGM (Background Music) is also great and match with the gameplay, definitely will improve the game experience.
For the beginning, it might feel a little lonely. Because, the races at the beginning are mostly time trials or time attacks, which are just solo to reach a certain destination as fast as possible. However, as progress continues, players will be able to register to a certain club. After becoming a club member, more racing events will open. For race types, CarX Street offer sprints, circuits (lap progress), and drifts (graded based on points). After successfully winning the race, the player will be given a certain amount of money and points which are used to increase the level to unlock various upgrades and new cars. Each club has limited racing events, and ends with a battle with the boss of the club. To access the PvP feature, players must first turn on the “street.net” feature on the map, then the map will show the position of other players. Players can also get some money if they win the challenge.
Another feature that must be considered in Carx Street is gasoline. The car can suddenly break down when it runs out of gas, so make sure the gasoline is full before starting the race or driving around. To get to a place faster, players can use the fast travel feature. But, keep in mind that using this feature will cost money. For early games it is recommended to go manually, and please remember to check the gas. For control, 3 types are provided, there are turning with buttons (right/left), steering wheel, and accelerometer (using gyroscope). Unfortunately, this game does not yet support controllers or gamepads. This feature is likely to be present after the PC version is released.
As mentioned earlier, CarX Street can be downloaded and played for free. However, keep in mind that this game has micro-transactions included to purchase items such as engine upgrades and more. Even so, the game is still fun to play and doesn't feel pay to win. Sometimes what makes this game difficult is the traffic. The presence of NPC cars sometimes blocks the road, but this is precisely what makes it interesting. Besides adding to the realistic impression of street racing, the presence of NPC cars makes it more challenging. How about it? Are you interested? Let's try it now.
