    This is easily the underdog of the Switch launch titles.. It isn't quite Redout but holy hell this is the perfect foreplay to it.. Dare I say equal.. I'm absolutely loving this title.. It's fast, challenging, great graphics and beautiful framerates..

    I hate the gyroscopic view, can you change the view so you aren't playing sideways like a real racing game?

    Demo would be nice, I'm thinking of buying but I can hold out for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (never owned a Wii U).

    I don't know why this game isn't being pushed by marketing.. It's absolutely awesome and 60fps docked... Are they afraid it's going to one up Redout? This is seriously hitting all my F-Zero and Wipeout needs to the fullest..

    And the Multiplayer works.. No subscription.

    Yeah, Fast Racing NEO was a nice little gem on the Wii U, but if you didn't get that, you should definitely get Fast RMX. Has NEO's base + DLC tracks as well as all-new new tracks, 4-player local split-screen, 8-player online/lan. Great game, and it's worth throwing some money at a dev supporting Nintendo with good games.

    I honestly have no clue wtf you are talking about. Could you describe better what you are talking about? It's the same perspective as most racing games from my playing.

    As for the game, I knew before the Switch came out that I was getting it. Unlike redout it's easy to pick up and play without practice

    Sure thing! In most racing games the camera is fixed to the same plane as the car, if you drive on a bank the camera follows the rotation of the car. This mario kart video is the best I could find right now, although it loses some sync with the camera, you are never really looking at a sideways or upside-down view of your kart.



    Whereas in fast rmx and other types of racers like it, the camera is not fixed to the same plane of the vehicle, therefore it is free to rotate separate from the camera and you find yourself looking at a sideways or even upside down car at times. While some people enjoy this, I do not. Try playing a flight simulator with an unfixed camera like that (FSX and XPLANE both have fixed and unfixed options) and you will see what I mean.



    So let me rephrase my question, does fast RMX have a first person or cockpit view?

    Yeah, all multiplayer is free until Nintendo changes it in fall to a sub based system.

    How do the physics compare to say Wipeout Pure? They looked a bit floaty and off on the videos but am wondering how they are in real life.

    From my experience it depends on the vehicle weight. Cebra seems to be a bit floaty when dropping from one ledge down to another part of the track, but nothing that ruins the game for me.

    Somewhere, out there...
    I have a few questions:

    When I play with Joy-Cons detached and in portable tablet mode (Kick stand in use), does it matter which Joy-Con I use? Also, for eshop games, and other games too, is there an electronic manual or anything? Thoughts appreciated :)

    It does not have what you're looking for, but the view *can* be change to further behind the vehicle to allow for a better idea of where it is on the track; I've found this helps me
