Developer(s): Climax Group
Game review links: Metacritic: 55/100
Game description: Welcome to a world where life revolves around the Hot Wheels World Race circuit--a series of races involving treacherous jumps, challenging competition, and death-defying loops. This is the life you've chosen and you'll need a good team and a dependable Hot Wheels car to survive. When you're ready, you'll tear up the tracks, jump to extreme heights, and collect pickups to trigger shortcuts. Becoming champion of the Hot Wheels tracks won't be easy, but you can always practice with a friend in head-to-head races.
The game is based on the movie and TV series of the same name that was released by Hot Wheels and Mainframe Entertainment. The gameplay of World Race is similar to many other racing games. You can do special tricks when in the air, which adds on to your car's boost. Collecting gold rings also increases the boost.

||1.7.2369||Runs at a consistent 100% speed with D3D11 and MTVU enabled. However, game runs incredibly slowly on Vulkan (often in the 60%s), so if you're having speed issues, it's worthwhile to switch to D3D11. Also, there's a minor graphical glitch where, when the screen fades to black, a large rectangular area on the bottom doesn't. Memory wrapping and preload frame data don't seem to fix this.||TheTechnician27|
