This is the best game I have ever played! The graphics are incredible and the controls are super intuitive! The load screens are also wonderful, and very abundant. I could literally spend hours just watching them; in fact, I do! I have never played a game that excites me as much as this one. I can't wait for a sequel and I hope to see this ported to my next-gen console of choice: the Wii U. I would love to play this in 1080p at 60 fps with my pet potato!

When I first heard about this game I didn't think it could be as bad as people were making it out to be, but it was.
The controls (driving and aiming most notably) are abysmal, as if you were trying to move on a patch of ice, although mostly while riding the bike. The story makes little to no sense, which makes it hard to want to even bother watching the cut scenes. Collectibles are a big issue as well, since to get them all you need to play the game twice (if you can even finish it once) to get them all, so stay away if you're achievement hunting. I will say however that a lot of people complained about load times although I didn't have much of a problem with that. The most disappointing part of this game is that if even a speck of dedication was given to making this game playable it may ave been pretty good. The concept is (sorta) there, the music is alright until it loops for 5 minutes then decides to stop altogether, and it had potential for good multiplayer racing.
Deep Silver is known for a few glitched games, most notably Dead Island, but at least they're enjoyable. This is a different story. I wouldn't recommend this game, not even as a rental.
