🦍 RIP Harambe 🦍

Game of the year contender, the graphics would be awesome if we were back in 1998. Sound effects are straight out of the movie and a generic sound bank. There are three races in total, only one track. Takes 1 hour for all achievements. Give it a try, you might actually enjoy it. Definetely worth it's price.

What a Ride......uhh

I hope the movie is better than this, embarassingly short no tutorial chariot racing nightmare. I bet if you try to get 100% achievements like I did youll have the movies release date on your tombstone. Its free thank god this wouldve been a cool game if there was more depth. Its more shallow than a puddle. Seriously....... 10/10 would nearly have an anuerism over a free racing game again 10/10 would whip again 10/10 cruelty to animals This Game makes me want to ben-HURT someone.

Hilariously cheesy and also free. Worth the laugh.

Upon startup you can tell this game will be cheesy straight from the main menu. The graphics are reminiscent of an OG xbox game and the game only has three buttons. That being said, it costs zero dollars. It took me around an hour to complete all the achievements and I also laughed several times in the process. If you're thinking about downloading it you probably should. If the movie is anything like the game it would most likely have to be directed by Tommy Wiseau.

Ben-Hur: The best movie based game ever!

Ben-Hur is the greatest action game on Xbox One, the racing is fantastic and the controls are incredibly responsive. And the story mode is truly fantastic, a great movie tie in.

Short, free, fun

It reminds me of the old days playing Road Rash. A short, less than 20 minute, experience that doesn't over-play its limitations. Two achievements for me didn't unlock, despite completing them (5x chariot whip destroys, and, win the season by destroying every other racer). The elastic-band AI is annoying, but it would be a dull race otherwise. Try going the wrong way at the start for a great head-on collision.

Free is still overpriced

Easy achievements but a pitiful game. Fails as a marketing gimmick and a game.
