To despoil is to plunder or pillage, but in the arena racer Despoiler the word takes on a more literal meaning. The game strips videogame cars of their spoilers, hubcabs, tyres, wheels, almost everything - leaving behind a sleek chassis which bobs and weaves a metre or two above the ground, suspended by some future technology.
Except it is no sci-fi propulsion mechanism at all that powers Despoiler’s machines, but the trickery of Unreal Engine 4.
