I am not a big fan of racing games for some reason, but I found this game for free on ps plus, and I was surprised how much I liked this game.
The graphics are really good, and the tracks look pretty nice as well.
It is a very face paced game, so it takes a couple tries to remember the track, but once you do it feels awesome to ride the track smoothly throughout. There are dozens of shortcuts too on every track so it adds to the entertainment finding more and more everytime you play a track again.
Some people say that the difficulty rises after the second season, but I got the elite pass on first or 3rd try on every season except for some of the time trials and combat, but other than that the difficulty is perfect.
The weapons are a fun add on too, and it's good that your car doesn't blow up after every missile that hits you because that would be very annoying, but instead it takes multiple, and the weapons slow you down.
I thought the multiplayer was really good as well, yes there is an online pass, but the game is very cheap or free for ps plus members. There is absolutely no lag, and you can usually find at least 5 other racers alongside with you.
This game is definitely worth a rent, and if you like fast paced racing games with some good multiplayer, than you should buy it.

This is by far possibly the only racing game I actually liked! This just proves once again that as long as you don't do something idiotic like use a camera in a game or any other gimmicy thing then the PS Vita CAN have great games!

If you want a beautiful, fast, racing game to show off the vita's hardware, look no further.
If you want a solid, well balanced, engaging racer, well...
Starting with the difficulty, its just brutal. Starting about halfway through the 2nd "season" You'll be getting hit by enemies weapons left and right, obliterating all speed you've build up. The tracks require serious memorization, certain vital shortcuts are almost impossible to see, and the AI has no plans to wait for you to catch on. There are very few "cars" to choose from and earning most of those will require serious grinding of races to get enough xp. If you want to play online, you will also need to shell out more money to get an online pass.
I played for a couple days, got about half way done with the campaign and returned it to Gamefly. Thank God I didn't make the mistake of buying this on launch.
