This Is a game with an interesting concept. Think of a cross between Mad Max and a George Romero film, and you have something far better than Clutch.
Essentially it's an open-world streetracing title, with one relatively unique selling point: zombies. Apparently, the best way to deal with a ruined city full of the walking dead is to deck out a car with spikes and blades and then drive fast. There is some kind of story, but it is unlikely you will care, or be able to understand it if you do. Developed in Russia, Clutch has some of the most hilariously bad translation yet seen in games and as the story is told entirely through text at the start and end of missions, following it is difficult.
Players are treated to a number of different modes, including racing, item collecting, helping someone else collect items, and more racing. Unfortunately, it doesn't take long for the game to get boring as the driving is very basic, with nothing to set it apart from other racing games. The graphics are awful and the city the game is set in is tiny. The killing stroke is that the soundtrack consists of five terrible songs, played over and over - it's not uncommon to have the same track play a few times in a row.
Side missions can also be played to amass funds with which you can upgrade your car. This is not only extremely dull but also pointless, as the upgrades you buy are barely noticeable when it comes to performance.
Yet this game does have one redeeming feature. Zombies are everywhere, and mowing them down in a variety of gruesome ways is nearly always amusing.
