Review of the Original Game:

Most people grabbed the main game free with PlayStation Plus and most, including myself, enjoyed it. Now after the main game is over or maybe you are just looking for more content, I suggest you check this out.

Gameplay:
The Supercharger Pack DLC for Table Top Racing: World Tour contains just one new track called “Can You Dig It” with four different routes. The track is situated in a desert and it’s apparently based on the developer’s favourite action movies.

It is far from the best location and theme but offers a fun alternative to what you get in the main game. You also get four new cars, each with four paint schemes. They are nice but feel too similar to all the other vehicles with the exception of the nippy supercar. Why wouldn’t Playrise Digital have gone for an action movie theme with the DLC cars? A missed opportunity if you ask me.

The three brand new championships and sixteen special events add more of the same style of content to the proceedings and should keep you going for a while. Sadly, there is nothing to mix up the racing with no new modes or abilities. The layout of the various routes are nice and the many table edges offer a few close calls, perfect for nudging a fellow racer off into the abyss.

Visuals:
The new track is pleasant to look at but it’s far from my favourite. It is a very different style compared with the originals but feels marginally basic in comparison to the bright and stylish YO! Sushi restaurant or the fun and exciting Back to the 80’s course.

Audio:
There are no changes or additions here from the original game which is a shame as I would have liked at least a new audio track.

Online/Multiplayer:
You can use the new DLC cars and track in the online mode so it adds to the variety on offer. The cars still feel too similar and any real differences are largely aesthetic.

Conclusion:
The first, and hopefully not the last DLC for Table Top Racing: World Tour is a nice addition for fans of the game. I would have liked more of a distinction between the new vehicles, maybe even themed around some action movies and TV shows. The Supercharger Pack DLC is worth the money, but only just.

Score:
6.0
