i'm not a big fan of driving games, but wanted to give this a try. (i'm not great at video games.) i found it easy to get set up, and fairly easy to get through the basic tutorials. the first set of excite races were fun, and with practice i got past them. but i never got past the second set. probably due to the fact that i am not a die-hard gamer. but it was an enjoyable game for me, one that i do look forward to purchasing. the only control problem i had was getting air in the jumps...somehow when i tilted back, the game always thought i was tilting forward.
Pro - It's a different style racing game, fairly easy to navigate. Cons - I really didn't like how I had to pass the different training modules before I could actually play the game. I had to pass them all so my son could race in the game. I think there could have been a more effective way of incorporating the information without it. Even after winning one of the regular races I was never able to unlock other races. I'm not sure what I was doing wrong.
I rented this game for my 4 year old. While his favorite types of games are racing ones, and he did enjoy it, it's not one that I would buy or rent for more than a few days.
