The racing genre in video games can be quite competitive. There have been dozens of failed franchises, and only the best of the best really stand out, like Gran Turismo, Project Gotham, Forza Motorsport, Need for Speed and Burnout. Disney Interactive is hoping to grab that checkered flag with its upcoming racer Split/Second (shipping May 18), and with the right marketing we think the game will do just fine. This latest trailer does a great job in showcasing the Hollywood-style racing action, with high speeds, explosions and big air jumps. It also helps that the game is definitely a looker.
