The game takes place in a huge virtual city and features 40 race tracks separated in circuit races (round tracks with 5 laps) and sprint races (A to B races). Beside circuit and sprint races there's also a free driving mode where you can explore the city without any time limits, but fully equipped with weapons. Hard Rock Racing is different than any other racing game - it has a fantastic mixture of tracks where you need your weapons to win the race by shooting and bombing your opponents right from the track, but also insane high speed tracks where it is mostly down to great driving ability needed to win the track. Select yourself which tracks you like most!
In Hard Rock Racing you get rewarded with in-game cash for nearly every action you do in a race . You receive cash for crashing other cars, for explosions caused by your missiles and mines that affect other cars, for jumping over epic ramps and getting airtime cash, for driving best laps and best race times as well as for winning the top ranks in a race. Use that in-game cash to unlock tracks and race modes.
All tracks can be raced in 4 difficulty modes ranging from easy to medium over to hard and finally the insane mode. That means to master all tracks in all modes you need to race and win 160 races! But don't worry, if you can't win a track in a regular race and tried 3 times to race it, you can just buy the unlocking of the track to continue to the next race. This allows all players - from beginners to experts - to master all cups and tracks in all difficulty modes.
But Hard Rock Racing does not only feature a great singleplayer experience, the game has also multiplayer built in. Race with you friends (or foes) online or in a LAN and shoot their cars with your missiles and bomb them off the track with your proximity mines! The following multiplayer game types are available: Free Driving, Circuit Races and Foxhound. Up to 10 human players can play together in a race.
The game runs in any native resolution your Mac offers.
