Well, I personally love racing games, but this is not one of them.....and so yes, it is another failed racing game on PS3. I wanted to like this one, and I played it as long as I could, but.....
The controls were simple, but not responsive, and for some reason, the whole time I NEVER felt like I was in complete control of my car. It felt like I was driving a boat on a dirt obstacle course....which brings me to my next point.....
It was unclear to me if the tracks were supposed to be realistic or fantasy funtime "Nintendo" style kid courses. The only thing missing from the tracks were little ground hogs popping up out of the ground trying to "get ya".
Gameplay.....well even if you happen to enjoy the funtime Mario Kartish kid courses, then you still will hardly ever take 1st place....no matter how upgraded your vehicle is. I think I managed to place 1st in one race, the rest of the time I placed under 3rd. I personally hate placing any other place besides 1st, yet with this game it seemed like wasted energy to even care.
Let's not even talk about graphics. I've got the whole HD setup, and if they were that terrible in HD, then don't even try this game if you have a regular TV.
So, in conclusion, hope you can drive your stupid boat car on the stupid funhouse tracks in which you will NOT win.

It's really this simple: the graphics are poor and the game is no fun. Yes, you can spend 3 hours racing the Baja 1000, but why would you when all 1000 miles look the same: brown and jaggy. Except the sand parts, they look tan and jaggy.
