Being a motorcycle owner and rider in real life I'm sometimes a sucker for any new motorcycle game that comes along. I used to love the old moto gp games on the consoles and some of the newer side scrolling motorcycle games have been fun as well. Lane splitter takes a different approach and gives us a top down view of our motorcycle and the road. Once you're riding all you have to do is steer left and right with the accelerometer avoiding the cars and sides of the road as long as you can. It's a fairly simple game that is well executed and graphically a treat.
This game is addictive and fun. It gets a LOT harder as you go along. The bike speeds up every so often automatically, there are heavy traffic patterns and probably more that I haven't been able to make it to yet. It's great fun, easy to play and the fact that I keep hitting play again tells me that this is a keeper. Giving it away for free makes this one a no brainer. Sure there are other features that would make it a more robust game but as is you simply must try it. See if you can beat my current high score of 6865, I'm sure you'll bust it in no time. Meanwhile I'll just keep hitting play again until I can do better and get a high enough score to warrant a Facebook post. As a real rider my paltry score is a little embarrassing at the moment. I sure am having a blast with it though! I give Lane Splitter 4.5 out of 5 stars!
