Ben-Hur is a racing game developed by Krome Studios and published by AOL, and is currently available for free on the Xbox One. The game is a kart style racer in vain of Mario Kart, but without power-ups and such. It takes place in the Roman Colosseum and as such is a circular track that adds obstacles as you advance from race to race. Starting with race one, it has little to no obstacles, with the final race having larger hindrances more frequently around the track.
All in all, I would recommend this game since it is free, but if it was not it would be a definite NO! This game is such as shell game it is not even funny. However, when looking at it, I feel this game was made as a playable teaser for the movie of the same name that is releasing on August 19th. I believe it was meant to be just a simple ad tie-in. However, for being a playable teaser, Ben-Hur is a decent game and worth the download to get the achievements. The game is a very easy 1000 Gamerscore and it is one of the only reason I would think someone would play this game.
Final Score: 2/10
-Very Short Game
-Horrible Soundtrack and Average Visuals
