LocoCycle earns its name with a metric ton of crazy, but its inconsistent, monotonous gameplay ultimately derails it.

Ultimately, the whole thing is depressing more often than it's annoying. Twisted Pixel's lineage suggests that LocoCycle is made by talented and creative designers who had a handful of potentially entertaining ideas to play with. The implementation is rushed and slipshod, however, ignoring fundamental problems and expending limited energy on the wrong things. What you're getting for your money feels a little like somebody else's office in-joke: you can sense the well-intentioned laughter, but you can't really join in.

Plays like a torturous yet incredibly entertaining fever-dream. The humor makes a playthrough worthwhile, but the clunky mechanics are a real detriment to the overall experience.

It's almost impressive that the bottom of the barrel has been established this early on in the Xbox One's career, but that's the only achievement of note for this wretchedly awful racer.
