Fast Lane? More like Sunday Driver.
Remember an old arcade game called Head-On? Probably not, as it was well before your time and even a big hit on the Atari 2600. The game consisted of a car making the rounds in different lanes, picking up dots ala Pac-Man while avoiding a ruthless computer car determined to collide into it. It had a little strategy to it, and was fun for awhile, but nowadays it seems less complicated than the competition. Now it's back as Fast Lane for your cell phone, and not much has changed.
Sega has retained the classic look of the game, as well as the feel, so you can get right into it. But there isn't much variance in it, as all you do is change your speed and avoid the computer car, level after level. This can be fun for a little bit, but eventually grows old and even frustrating, if you think you've read the patterns of the car. Worse yet, the audio is uneventful and the presentation is yawn-inducing.
If you have memories of the classic Head-On, I suppose Fast Lane is worth a few bucks to download. Me? I remember the game fondly and do like the hour or so I played with it, but that's really all I need. It's a game I've overcome and beaten and now it's time for something more.
What's Hot: Feels like the classic game Head-On.
What's Not: Gets old. Like bad tires.
