murasakiDo you love cars? Racing others late at night, trying to get the best time? Then why not try out Murasaki Street Racer, a social racing game created to promote Scion’s latest release, the Scion xB Release Series 7.0 (a very limited edition car available at Scion dealers now).

But back to our game, since that’s what matters to us – is it good or not? From what I saw – after about 12 races, I finally managed to beat the AI controlled opponent, so if you are not afraid of some challenge, we can say that the game is really cool. The controls – for a title you play in your browser, are very smooth and the car is quite responsive (since this game is kind of an advertisement for the real life car, it would’ve totally sucked if it was otherwise, you know…)

The best part is that you can link Murasaki Street Racer with your Facebook account (either from the in-game menus or by joining their Facebook Fan Page here) and compare your race results with your friends, while also staying up to date with the latest news on the Scion xB Release Series 7.0. And, of course, get an username, customize the color of your car and challenge your friends for the best score.

The only problem? There’s just one course at the moment and you will soon get bored with it. But give it a try and see for yourself!
