Never Stop Running - Speed Limit Steam Review

By Joel | April 3, 2021
Speed Limit is a game you should be playing right now. So run and get yourself a copy before it passes you by.

Think your daily commute is tough? Spend some time with Gamechuck's newest runner, Speed Limit, and you'll start to appreciate just how relaxing Los Angeles traffic can be compared to this game.

Casting you as an innocent commuter, Speed Limit takes you by the collar and doesn't let up one bit. Right from the start, you're off on the proverbial run throughout the various levels with the simple goal of surviving wave after wave of relentless attacks.

Taking elements from classic past games, you'll be dodging bullets, weaving in and out traffic, and blasting bad guys from the air. So the experience is surreal at times that at the end of it all, you'll probably feel what James Bond goes through daily.

Speed Limit is a game you should be playing right now. So run and get yourself a copy before it passes you by.

Ready, Set, Run!

The first few levels, a shootout inside a train and then a car chase sequence, acts as precursors of what's to come as each level becomes progressively more challenging and daunting the further into the game you get.

Improving and surviving each round takes practice, memorization, and a whole lot of patience because one small slip-up will almost always lead to death. And believe me when I say you will die. And die often. Thankfully the game's generous quick loading feature ensures that you'll be up and running in no time.

Visually, Speed Limit retains that old-school feel through its liberal use of pixel graphics that are reminiscent of games from years past. Despite the abundance use of blocks, each pixel is meticulously placed and never gets confusing to navigate around. The thumping soundtrack is synchronized perfectly with the action and helps to keep the adrenaline pumping at full speed.

Never Stop Running

Overall, the Speed Limit is an enigma. Despite its simple gameplay, it isn't easy. While the missions look straightforward, it takes a lot of trial and error to complete successfully. And with the high frustration that accompanies each mission, players will probably throw their controllers at their monitors in rage.

But for those that can tough it out, you'll be filled with sheer delight knowing you've just beaten one of the most challenging games to come out in a long, long time. If you're the type that likes extreme challenges without the complicated subplots or storylines, Speed Limit is a game you should be playing right now. So run and get yourself a copy before it passes you by.
