Review: Disney Speedstorm is a brilliant kart racer but service game critics should steer clear

On the track, Disney Speedstorm is a fantastic karting game with great handling and a host of unique features to set it aside from generic Mario Kart clones. It's very much a live service game at its core, though, so players not willing to put in the time (or the money) may not find it compatible with their gaming habits.

  • Sublime handling, especially its satisfying drift mechanics
  • Each character feels rounded with voice acting, bespoke animations and individual special moves
  • Plenty of regularly refreshing events and modes designed to keep players busy
  • The dubstep-dance soundtrack is brilliantly over-the-top
  • It's a live service game that's set to go free-to-play – if you don't like that, this won't change your mind
