Kinetica is lots of fun -- racing fans will want to grab this one. There are enough secrets and features to keep you playing for hours. The unique racing experience offered here stands out from the pack of futuristic titles with high-speed action and gorgeous graphics. Both fun and challenging, Kinetica is well worth a look.
While not quite as blazingly fast as Extreme G3, Kinetica gave me many moments to do my best Keanu Reeves impression and utter a dazed "Whoa…" If you buy this game, you're going to play it and you're going to like it. It's the best of this racing sub-genre right now.

Kinetica scores major points for originality and surprisingly deep play mechanics. it also sports excellently designed courses, and even some really nice racing tunes!
Kinetica stands out as a graphically impressive, inventive racing title that is somewhat diminished by slightly erratic control and a lack of depth. Still, it’s nice to see people trying new things within a genre in dire need of new blood.

In the end, after spending much time with this game, Kinetica is a sweet arcade racer with many perks to appreciate. Its hi-res sci-fi visuals are something to be thankful for, despite a slightly jerky frame rate. The action has its sense of speed, and the gameplay itself can be a lot fun when the trick system is well learned. The soundtrack consists of good techno beats done by professional talent. If you're looking for an amusing arcade racer with futuristic style, Kinetica is your stop. Sony's tag line, "Racing has evolved," makes perfect sense now.

The one-player season mode is pretty hard, and a split screen option is included for two players (during which my friend Scott asked if there was an "end game early" power-up). I did enjoy the audio, which consists of high-octane techno music that perfectly matches the theme of the game. All in all, Kinetica is an ambitious title that's technical proficient but too complicated for its own good.
