OverDrive 2.6 for Negative User Reviews

Game is brokenI have recently gotten back into Aki overdrive, and was surprised to see this app. I thought the way they used to have the game set up was better than the newest way that they have it now so I wanted to try this app out immediately. I was disappointed, however, because I can’t do ANYTHING in this app. I try to go to the garage, I can’t equip anything. I try to play a tournament, it crashes along with open play. Biggest waste of $3 ever, I’d rather have an app that’s slightly worse but free!.Version: 2.6.8

2 player not available. Wifi disconnected alwaysBought This for my kids on Christmas. They were sooooo happy to get this but after paying £6 to download the app to two phones guess what. You cannot connect them to play with each other as this company has not fixed any bugs or glitches with said app !!! They need a patch QUICK. Total waste of money and kids sad now since this was their main present. Bloody joke of a company should of just got a PROPER scalextric set !!!.Version: 2.6.10

Doesn’t work wellMy big brother got me this for Christmas. Me and my brother were very exited. We got the fast and furious version, my brother picked it up from the store. It started to work but it kept saying that our cars were different names. Then they said that our cars were dead and wouldn’t let them race. And you’d think that after you bought this for about 50 dollars that the app would be free. Me and my brothers are very disappointed and sad. So now we wasted 3 dollars and we have to return the product to the store. Very very disappointed.Version: 2.6.10

PLEASE READ I REALLY LOVE ANKI OVERDRIVESo I have had anki for over 3 years now and I have spent HUNDREDS of dollars on this. I just got my son a new I pad so he play this game more. He downloaded the app and was SO UPSET! He played through the first tournament toutorisl thing and he had to do it again. When he tries to open his garage after he gets a new weapon the game just crashes. Pleases fix these bugs I have loved anki so much and still want to play it..Version: 2.6.5

Has PotentialWhen I saw digital dream labs was making this I was excited for it and when it came out I bought it instantly. The problem was it was even worse. It no longer felt sorta modern and literally everything had a bug. It had so much potential but because of bugs and problems I was heavily disappointed.Version: 2.6.8

Upgrades for carsYou can’t upgrade your cars it’s sooooooo annoying.Version: 2.6.10

AwfulPerhaps make the app free like the current Overdrive App. The 2.99 price would put people off from downloading the app.Version: 2.6.4

Paid for app, car doesn’t work, can’t playWe had to pay for the app only to discover the car battery is dead. Useless game without the app and 2 working cars. Do not like that you need to pay for this app after purchasing the track set..Version: 2.6.10

Useless :( Bring back 3.4.0This version (2.6.10) of the app crashes every time I try to scan the track. I had the same problem on 3 different devices all with different OS versions. Fortunately a couple of my devices still have 3.4.0 which works perfectly everywhere. Please bring back 3.4.0!.Version: 2.6.10

BobThis app was free and I still have the old app but for some reason it doesn’t let me get my account on the anti overdrive 2.6 and my ground shock was all most level 100 so I am not happy about that at all. Over all the old app was better.Version: 2.6.10

App does not workApp does not work with ipad 6th gen or iphone 7plus if you want to play multiplayer. I have reached out to dream labs with troubleshooting steps, but with a horrific customer experience. No response what so ever..Version: 2.6.10

This app is garbageDo not believe all the negative reviews. It’s actually worse than you think. The app tried scanning our track but ended up drawing a massive spaghetti-like track which was a total mess. Somehow, it managed to complete the track scan, but as soon as the race started, one car started jerking around in slow motion like an injured wasp and the other lazily drove over the edge of our ramp like the driver dozed off at the wheel. It appears that the app does not recognize that the ramp track accessory requires the cars to actually speed up in order to make the jump. The only good thing about it is the hysterical laughter that ensued as we watched this tragedy unfold. Unfortunately as with all comedy, it’s usually only that funny the first time. What’s NOT funny is charging people money for a piece of doodoo app that was previously free. Four thumbs down for this absolutely horrific execution by Digital Dream Labs. Seriously embarrassing..Version: 2.6.10

Bad appI have an iPad Pro and it crashes contently when I click scan track I can’t play because of it please fix.Version: 2.6.10

Waste of moneyI never pay for an app., but did this time after my son got a Christmas gift that was useless without it. The cars ran for maybe a minute, then quit. This was after charging multiple times. So now I’ve wasted money on an app and a toy that is pointless. Curious if there is a way to get a refund…..Version: 2.6.10

Great app, but music is a huge problemThis app is great, but it needs some fixing on the music. Everything sounds fine and I can hear all of the voicelines and the cars, but the music is completely muted. I even went into the settings but the volume was all the way up. If this could be fixed, this would instantly go to five stars. The app is updated to the latest version as of now and I’m currently using an iPhone 12 to play. Anyone else have this issue? It’s really irritating..Version: 2.6.10

This game is absolutely rubbishLieterally it tells you what to do then when u do it the cars won’t listen do not waste your money on this it’s absolute garbage.Version: 2.6.10

Need to wait a little bitIts great they are back and lot of cool stuff, but too many bugs to fix from this new one. I will delete and download again in a week or two. I have an Iphone 8 and it opens ones and never again, on my ipad it opens and you can play but as I said too many bugs and some cars like nuke are not yet available..Version: 2.6.5

It worked good, then…It was working perfectly fine until a couple days later it wouldn’t let me use the cars, my Bluetooth is on, and also is my wi-fi. I also exited the app and went back in, I restarted my phone, my brother also wasn’t able to use them. Could you please tell me what is going on? ABOUT THE APP… It’s actually a good app, you connect the cars and make the track and drive around, you use your cars powers to disable other cars, you can do missions/quests to get money. 2 players if 2 people have the app and much more..Version: 2.6.10

Wifi won’t connectMy phone is connected to wifi and so is the other player. The app says disconnected and won’t connect to play multiplayer. Only one person can play at a time. Looked online and it’s a common problem for iPhone users. Can’t find a fix. Weird you have to pay for the app to make the cars race after you purchase the race set. Not impressed.Version: 2.6.10

Trash - DON’T BUYDON’T BUY If I could give zero stars I would. Don’t bother and don’t buy. Absolute trash. Got the F&F set up and the old app isn’t working 100% so downloaded the new one and you can’t select the cars. DON’T BUY.Version: 2.6.10

Cannot play multiplayerDoesn’t work. Feel I should have left this in the loft or binned it….Version: 2.6.10

What's the difference?I don't see much difference between the original app and this one. It still has tons of not-playing-with-race-cars stuff I have to plow through before I can make the cars go. I do like the throttle control better on this app. The computer cars still drive like idiots, flying off the track every half lap or so. I still can't consider this fun. It's interesting, but not fun. My daughter said the app looked like it was trying to be the game instead of the cool robot cars. I agree..Version: 2.6.5

Still not full screenI get the £2.99 charge as you have taken over Anki and that I’m ok with. What still baffles me is that after all this time, the app is still NOT full screen. How come? Please make the experience look even better on the latest iPhones that have been out 3 years..Version: 2.6.5

Do not purchaseIf yoh have an iPhone newer than iPhone X. This app is not compatible as per their website and I can’t play or join games..Version: 2.6.10

Don’t BuyIt is a old version of the app which hasn’t been updated to hold all the cars. It has lots of bugs and can’t use all the super trucks. They are making you pay for an old, glitchy version that they won’t fix. Do not buy it, use the other one. It is a waste.Version: 2.6.5

New version doesn’t recognise WiFiAfter finally being able to login because of the bug in the first release it now seems that WiFi is not recognised. when I go to multiplayer it says device not ready because not connected to WiFi. I definitely am and I get the same message on the other players phone too. I have the old Anki version installed and when I load this it detects I’m on WiFi just fine but this version just doesn’t work.Version: 2.6.8

TerriblePlayed Anki Overdrive for years. Always worked perfectly fine before. Had to reinstall app after purchase and now cars are struggling to even scan the track, let alone race on it. Cars are also not holding charge! Hopefully someone pulls their finger out and sorts this rubbish out soon..Version: 2.6.10

Not compatible with Fast & Furious EditionJust bought Anki Overdrive Fast & Furious Edition and no app available to play! Completely ridiculous and bought this app as only one, now wasted my money.Version: 2.6.10

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth not recognisedCannot play multiplayer due to the fact that the app won’t recognise Bluetooth or Wi-Fi settings on iPhones.Version: 2.6.10

Doesn’t recognize wifiDoesn’t recognize that I’m connected to wifi and just shows “disconnected” on all devices. Useless without multiplayer. Also all campaign progress gets reset to square one each time you open the app.Version: 2.6.8

Awesome but...It forgets the tournament part and starts back every time. It's annoying. I love the game but it starts back. Please fix!.Version: 2.6.5


Nice but needs all carsThis currently does not support the Fast and Furious cars which for us that have both standard and F&F starter kits annoying as we can only use 2 of the 4 cars we own. So need cannot play multi-player against campaign. Not this is an issue as for some reason cannot play multi player as it states we need to turn WiFi on to connect. It is on but not picking it up as it works perfectly on the other Anki apps. Devices are Apple so maybe a stability fix. So overall ok but needs stability and all cars in it before it becomes a replacement for the other interfaces. The money purchase is ok to encourage dev to continue but this now needs to be stabiles before any more investment.Version: 2.6.5

DO NOT GET THIS APPI got the app and was really exited that they brought back things from before. I opened the app and tried to battle crash bot and the game crashed. Tried again, the game crashed. I tried some more, and eventually gave up. I went back to the Anki overdrive app, and my level 3 plasma cannon and charge beam were now level 2. My level 2 electro pulse is now level one. That might not be all, I haven’t checked the rest. I lost about half of the stuff that I had worked months for. DO NOT GET THIS APP!!!.Version: 2.6.6

Still no full screen. Letterbox onlyHow much longer are you going to make us wait for this app to be fixed ? Also this app should be free as they took away the anki free app..Version: 2.6.10

Waste of moneyThis app looks fantastic . You download it and it resets the firmware on your cars. (Then You loose weapons that you purchased in the previous app for your vehicles.) Not a big deal. Then you select a race and set the cars on the track. Then when you press the screen to start a track scan . THE APP CRASHES!!! I have deleted and reinstalled this about five times. I wasted money for this stupid app. And then when I deleted it and reinstalled the old overdrive application.I had lost a lot of the weapons in my vehicles . This app is junk . They developed it and never followed up with updates to fix it from crashing . DO NOT BUY THIS FOR YOUR CHILDREN . It does not work. This company went out of business and does not offer anymore support for the toys they produced . So once your kids have raced and beat all the characters in the original app. There is no more updates to give them any reason to want to play with the cars . And this app just disappoints them by crashing before they even get to play ..Version: 2.6.8

Nonfunctional productUnfortunately, the bad reviews are right. Came back to check this out and paid the $3. First training mission worked fine. Second training mission, two of the cars are just greyed out and can’t be chosen and the third (which I just used) now disconnects the moment I take it off the charger. One works fine, but can’t play this with one car. Same exact result with a second phone. Don’t waste your $3..Version: 2.6.10

Has potential, but bugs render it unplayable.Digital Dream Lab’s reboot of Overdrive was much needed. There are many improvements, like the track scanning and campaign. But, when I exit out of the tournament, to go to other parts of the app, I lose all progress. Also, when I win matches, the amount of coins I get are unsaved. This renders the shop useless..Version: 2.6.8

Ok, but need a lot of improvementsDear Digital Dream Labs I really like the new overdrive but it doesn’t save you progress in tournament mode. Plus, the weapons aren’t the same. I had so many levels on my weapons and I found out there isn’t levels. Anyways, the main issue is to make it so it saves your progress. I know you just brought Overdrive back and thank you for that, but a I am hoping to see improvements in the future. If you implement these changes, instant 5 star for me. Thank you!.Version: 2.6.8

Money wastedIs there anyway to report this app as it is scam Already paid money to buy it & now it’s not working at all Any chance to get refund?.Version: 2.6.10

Absolute rubbish DO NOT BUY!!This app does not work properly with the latest software. You can't play multi player, unable to log into the game and save your progress, the game freezes constantly. I have got a cheap old Samsung phone and downloaded the original anki overdrive app which is FREE and works amazing. When contacting the developer then do not respond or wish to help. Unless your running old software don't bother downloading.Version: 2.6.10

Doesn’t support fast and furious carsFound out after purchasing it doesn’t support.Version: 2.6.10

I can’t startWon’t scan app crashes.Version: 2.6.10

Work in progress..DDL are on the right track here but please make an update to the app so you can use all cars and MOST IMPORTANTLY imo, please fix the issue where users cannot join or host a multiplayer game!! I can play multiplayer just fine on the old apps. Fix this, and I’ll update this review with 5 stars no problem!.Version: 2.6.8

Absolute pantsSo frustrating and not user friendly at all aaarrrggghh.Version: 2.6.10

Cars wont addI had an issue with one of the cars not adding so I removed them all and started again and now it wont let me add any cars! An insult that the app is chargeable after buying the track and cars separately..Version: 2.6.10

Don’t do itThis app has always had great potential but they have a track record now of giving up on versions and creating new ones while never completing any of them. If the take the time to properly make their game and keep it released and available, with updates and maintenance it would be phenomenal but until then just save the money..Version: 2.6.10

Love Overdrive, but 2.6 is very buggyI love overdrive, I have all cars and trucks. I was thrilled when DL took over development but the app should not have been release in that state. The new app is extremelly buggy. -Campaign progress won’t save -It constantly crashes -It won’t open the car setup scren -UI overlays on top of each other -Fast and Furious cars ard not supported It simply doesn’t work. I really hope it is fixed soon..Version: 2.6.6

Works good one problemI don’t k own if it’s because the weapons that I have (had) are too new or something But when I signed into my overdrive account it tried to transfer everything I had over but it left out nukes disintegrator and his antimatter smash thing which are two very valuable weapons to nuke I also lost support items for both skull and ground shock Other than those two big loses not much to complain about Also nuke phantom is not available yet but I’m sure that will change in later updates.Version: 2.6.8

Lost my accountThe app is ok and i dont know about connecting to stuff because i need new batteries mine are broken. But my 3 year over account has been deleted and i am very angry after buying this app and that happining.Version: 2.6.10

Great revival but need lots of workThe game is great overall but some glitches like the tournament resetting whenever you go home or go to the garage. I wish you could support the fast and furious cars but overall the game is really good..Version: 2.6.8

Complete rip offDoes not work we had the original it did not work properly. Bought this one in hopes that they improved it paid to download app on two devices and it just doesn’t work doesn’t connect and car battery last 5 seconds! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY IF YOU ALREADY BOUGHT IT DON ‘t open it and waste your money on this app.Version: 2.6.10

CrashesApp doesn’t work when you use ‘Nuke’. Just when you press “begin scan” of the track, the app crashes and closes. Please fix ASAP.Version: 2.6.8

Great game but needs the bugs fixedIt’s a great game but it always says disconnected for wifi when you try to do multiplayer. And the tournament always resets when you leave..Version: 2.6.8

Multiplayer FailSame feedback as others here. Wifi always thinks it is disconnected so multiplayer races are not possible. Looking forward to an upgrade that fixes this issue..Version: 2.6.8

Limited use of the previous vehiclesVery disappointed not able to use the fast and furious cars, ‘ice charger’ and ‘International MXT’ also unable to use the ice X52 truck. No idea why these vehicles could not have been included in this reboot edition. Gives me no confidence on purchasing any more vehicles due to the potential of future compatibility concerns. Plus only found this out after paying to download the app, if known the limiting factor of the vehicles I would not have bothered. Company Should have made it clear on what vehicles would be/not be supported..Version: 2.6.5

Same Bad AppFirst of all this is the same exact app as the original, crashes, bad layout, and still doesn’t support newer iphones. Like why did i pay 3 dollars for this if it’s the same as the old trash app. Upset that this company, That i did the survey for, did not listen to a single piece of advise and now has my money that they obviously won’t be doing anything with. Waste of money use old app!!.Version: 2.6.5

Fast & Furious EditionThis app does not support the Fast & Furious Edition. And it does not have its own app. The Fast & Furious Edition Starter Pack comes with Zero instructions..Version: 2.6.10

Needs more workAs Razorclaw has reviewd.Version: 2.6.10

Not a great new beginning...This is disappointing – I can’t get multiplayer mode on any (many) Apple devices to work. 'iPhone clients claim networks are disconnected' issue is one of the known issues with Overdrive 2.6.6, but it is still not resolved. I would suggest that this is a major bug and should be treated as priority to fix (all previous Anki versions worked fine on IOS). I really want DDL to succeed, but the initial signs are not great..Version: 2.6.8

DO NOT BUYThe game straight up crashes whenever I try to scan the track. People have complained about this for over a year, and Digital Dream Labs doesn’t care. This is a straight up scam, don’t pay for an app that doesn’t work. I hate to leave this review, because I loved this game when Anki ran it. But after Digital Dream Labs took over, the game has basically been turned into a $3 Scam. They haven’t updated the game in nearly a year. The just don’t care about their customers, as long as they get their $3. Thanks Digital Dream Labs, I’m refunding this purchase..Version: 2.6.10

Seriously, did your pet dog do the programming?Really! Your first attempt at reintroducing the app and you guys put out something light years away from being ready and charge money for it. It’s only 3 bucks but I feel like I’ve been scammed and ripped off. I have all the cars and trucks and was only able to get 2 cars to scan the track before the app crashed. Also 3 vehicles not even supported. Most things in the app don’t do anything when clicked on and the 2 cars I got to work their progress wasn’t saved. At least I can go back to F&F and race. Get back to work and try to come up with an update fix that might just allow for a even one lap before crashing, really hope you guys are better than this..Version: 2.6.6

Overdrive !!Super trucks can’t run with cars. Joining a game on the same network comes up with the incredibly irritating message, “Your Device is not Ready”! Enable your devices Bluetooth and WiFi” THEY ARE!! In addition DDL have hidden Overdrive Fast & Furious so that only compatible devices can see it!! Well that’s just a lie. I have all the compatible devices and it just ain’t there!! F&F Cars are included but now have random names but F&F on track power ups don’t work. Cars run slow. No brakes but throttle is better. Sound does not work on latest iOS and last update Was over a year ago….Version: 2.6.10

Currently unplayableI have been a long time buyer of anki overdrive products, but the app is currently unusable for me or anyone else in the household. When the “Begin Scan” button is pressed, the app crashes. Along with that, in the occasional time that the app does work, no campaign progress or weapons are saved. We were all very excited to be able to play with these cars again, but we are now equally if not more disappointed..Version: 2.6.8

Where are the Fast and Furious cars?Just spent £2.49 on this app as it says in the latest version update that it now includes all cars. This is a blatant lie as the F&F cars are NOT included! Can’t believe that I have been taken in by these shysters..Version: 2.6.10

DO NOT BUY!!!Absolute waste of money. App doesn’t work properly. Then there’s the cars, their batteries are worse than useless, they don’t hold charge. Just don’t bother..Version: 2.6.10

A new release but not properly tested!So this new release adds some of the ‘missing’ cars. Great! Problem is, when you come to scan the track with anything except the 2 base cars - ground shock and skull. The app crashes. I own all the later vehicles so this is an issue. There is a sort of a workaround. But this should have come out during testing as it is a fundamental element of the product! Might be best to wait until they iron out the bugs that should never have been in the release candidate product!.Version: 2.6.10
