Auto Club Revolution also known as ACR is a 3D online racing browser game with a built-in social platform for car enthusiasts. Players join to race and chat with others. Explore notable tracks like the Infineon Raceway and the legendary British Motorsport Silverstone Circuit. Earn XP and credits for completing race challenges and beating others on the leader boards. Choose from dozens of different cars and purchase various part upgrades to improve speed performance. Create an in-depth player profile page listing all of your accomplishments and latest status updates. Meet new racing fans and chat. Participate in single or multiplayer race modes and become one of the greatest drivers ever to hit the tracks in this free-to-play MMO.
In the Race Hangout, the Gameplay
Players start out with Opel Corsa OPC on their home dashboard. At the top of the screen random racing challenges appear. Most of the gameplay revolves around completing racing challenges in either single or multiplayer mode. Successfully accomplishing a race earns XP and credits. When a player accumulates a certain amount of experience a new rank is achieved. Reaching a rank level will unlock additional tracks and free cars. Although browser based, this game operates more as a hybrid of the two, requiring separate downloads for each track. The downloading process can be annoying. When joining multiplayer races there’s a significant waiting time for player’s maps to load. Similar to Big City Racer the maps are limited. The small number of maps makes the gameplay feel repetitive. Users can only race through Infineon Raceway, Circuit de Spafrancorchamps, LA River, LA River Sprint, and the coveted Silverstone. LA River Sprint is a special drag racing track for drivers to test out their vehicle’s speed. Races are initiated through the lobby’s Race Hangout area with up to 8 players per track. The standard WASD keys are used for steering. Most of the courses are quite challenging. Drivers must maneuver through long wide turns, narrow pathways, up hills, under bridges, and navigate precise sharp turns to avoid penalties. ACR features realistic racing like Heat Online but with an animated touch.
Updating Your Status Facebook Style
Socializing is a big aspect of ACR. Players have access to each other through various chat channels and their profile page. Although the game has a somewhat small community of players they’re very active and friendly. There’s always a race event available and a handful of talkative chatters online. Players can converse in the open chat box and communicate during a race using the quick chat mode. Players also have a custom profile page, located on their home dashboard to post updates and share their progress. The sleek interface is easy to maneuver. It’s almost identical to the social platform used for sites like Facebook or Twitter. Each user has their own feed box where they can enter whatever they’re thinking. Players can also personalize their page by displaying race pins which function as achievement medals. Logging in daily, winning a particular challenge, hitting a high speed, and even crashing can earn of these prized badges of honor. Users are allowed to showcase and interchange up to three race pins on their profile at a time. The leader boards also list the top ranking players and their stats.
Vehicles & Upgrades
Much like Need for Speed World, the game features a variety of real licensed vehicles. Players can earn a free car by leveling up or they can be purchased through the showroom. All of the vehicles in the showroom require E credits in order to buy. This form of currency is difficult to attain without using actual money. Players with E funds can buy the Acura NSX, Bentley Continental GT Speed, Ford Focus ST, Ford GT, Jaguar XKR-S, Lotus Europa SE, Mazda RX-7 Spirit R, Type A, Nissan Skyline R34 NISMO, TVR T35OT, Vauxhall VXR8, BMW Z4 M Coupe, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Pagani Zonda F, and McLaren F1. The car customization options in Auto Club Revolution are pretty good as well. Players can drag and drop over 20 different decals onto their car. Design a vehicle with colored blobs and splats or an assortment of arrows. Add chequered flags, lions, deer, bats, eagles, ducks, alligators, sharks, snakes, snails, and fierce panthers to stand out in the crowd.
In the workshop players can invest in various upgrades to boost the overall performance of their vehicle. All of ACR’s upgrades can be purchased using in-game C credits earned through racing. Since these tokens are easy to acquire, anyone can customize their car to its highest level. Buy springs, dampers, induction kits, brake pads, brake discs, air filters, ECU, compression ratio, high lift racing camshaft, port polish, decat, gearbox, and lightweight drive shafts for inertia reduction. Cosmetically paint changes and higher caliber of wheels can be added. Brands like Revlo, Zeta K, RPO3, SF Challenge, and VX5 wheels are available.
Final Verdict: Fair
ACR feels more like a mediocre client game, disguised as a browser based racing MMO. There’s annoying mini downloads for every inch of new content and despite its polished interface there’s still some glitches that need to be worked out. The best feature in the game is its social platform which is rare in racing titles. Players can really connect with others. Although the player community is relatively small, all of the members are extremely active making the chat features fun to use. The car customization is another positive, with over 40 different licensed vehicles for players to upgrade. This F2P designed for motorsport fans might be worth trying for those that enjoy online racing games.
