Speed Warrior Walkthrough
Speed Warrior is absolutely, without question one of the best racing games online simply because it really offers something for every racing game fan regardless of skill or experience level and regardless of what kind of racing game they're interested in. This isn't really a straight ahead racing game. Instead it's more of a mash up of all the most popular styles of racing game including traditional track racing with NOS boosts, drift racing, escape racing,
Your goal in raceway mode in Speed Warrior is pretty simple - finish the race in first place. While the goal is simple, actually accomplishing that goal is a bit of a different story. You'll need to have fairly decent racing skills to get a first place finish so newcomers might have a bit of trouble getting through this game. The track offers enough twists and turns to make things interesting but not so hard newcomers won't enjoy it while not easy enough that more experienced players won't get the challenge they're looking for. The key to winning this portion of this game is to focus on taking corners carefully and using your NOS wisely. NOS gives you an excellent speed boost, but it also makes it a little harder to control your car, especially around corners. If you run into walls and get stuck behind other cars, you're going to greatly reduce your chances of finishing in first. Avoid other cars and keep control around corners, backing off the accelerator if need be, if you want to take home the win.
Drifting mode in Speed Warrior is going to thrill drift racing game fans. Your goal in this mode is to show off your drifting skills, but that isn't all that easy to do if your drifting skills aren't quite up to snuff. You need to be careful when drifting though. It's important that you avoid crashing into walls during a drift. Watch where you're going and try to keep control of your car while you're drifting. This isn't going to be easy for newcomers to drift racing games, but with a few trips around the track for practice and a little bit of patience even those just starting out with games in this genre can do well and finish with a good score. Hold your drift as long as you can. Longer drifts earn more points but remember, you need to successfully complete the drift to collect the points for it. If you finish up a long drift by crashing into a wall, you won't get the points for that drift.
Escape mode in Speed Warrior is one of the most challenging and intense modes this game has to offer. There's a lot you need to pay attention to if you want to win. Your goal is basically to evade capture but that can be extremely hard to do and only gets harder as you progress. You need to avoid hitting other cars on the road as you try to put distance between you and the police cars chasing you. Every cop car that hits you will damage your car. Hitting civilian cars will attract more police cars. Get four stars and you will end up in the cross hairs of a police sniper. Try to get as much distance as possible between you and the police as you can without hitting other cars. You'll only end up making things more difficult for yourself if you aren't careful. All of the information you need to see how well your doing is shown along the left side of the screen. At the top, you have the star icons that represent how much trouble you're in. Below that you have heart icons indicating your health. Run out of health and you'll lose. Below that you have items. Use the items you collect to make things a bit easier for yourself.
The greatest thing about Speed Warrior is that you have to unlock new races in new race modes by finishing all of the races before it. This gives you the chance to play in every game mode and prove you really have well rounded racing skills. This game is pretty much a racing game fan's dream. If offers excellent tracks in just about every different type of racing so each new race feels fresh and new allowing the game to avoid becoming boring or stale; a claim most other games in the genre just cannot make. This is going to make things a bit more difficult for newcomers, but because you're able to retry each race as many times as you need to, you can really improve your skills with a little bit of practice and eventually win the race and unlock the next one. More experienced players are going to have a ball with this one. Even if they find the majority of the races too easy, the sheer number of different options will keep them entertained.
Overall, Speed Warrior is the ultimate racing game for any fan of online racing games. There's a little bit of everything including new tracks to unlock, new modes to unlock and new cars to unlock.
