If you would just like to expand your ulcers and feel a pain in your sphincter, grab this title.
Right from the get-go at level one this game is lousy. I really like all sorts of racing games... but I just can't even find anything fun about this title. The idea behind the game is valid, and the idea itself has potential, but thats where it ends. Its not playable at all, The speedometer says your hauling fanny, but nothing really shows it. The tracks are irritatingly unmarked, and crooked, which would be fine if you had a vehicle that could handle them. Every time you make the tiniest error, your vehicle is nose, up going in random directions and usually spins the opposite way. Theres no GOOD customizing, no free roams, very limited tracks, no surprises at all, except that any game could suck this much... that was a surprise.
I know you have a GF account, and might think to give this game a try... but don't! you are spending money daily to have a GF account, by renting this one, you will waste a week in ship time, that could be used on something fun.
In short, there is nothing good about this title and KOEI should be horribly embarrased by its release.
