if you even just like racing a little bit this is THE game to rent. and if you love racing games this is a must have. this is the best racing game I've ever played. (it ties with gran turismo 4) it is perfect. the damage system is probailly the best a PS2 can put out. your car falls apart and dents like a real car. not like GTA where little pieces fly off no matter what. the car catches on fire and wheels can fall off its amazing. the racing is very unique. it combines drifting and drag racing and destruction derby all into 1. and the computer drivers aren't mindless either. (like in GT3+4 when they stay in a line). no these racers are competitive. they'll ram you and each other to win. its almost like they're real. and when you're racing the cd tracks are redneck rockish and it really gets you in the mood to smash stuff but if you don't like it then you can shut the music off to and put on a stereo or something. you get faster cars as you go along and you can buy oodles and oodles of upgrades for all of them. and you can really tell the difference when you do buy them. as for the mini games (aka bonus races) they're also some of the best i've ever seen. and loads of fun to. they pay more $ the further you get in the game (3 stages). even though they're all the same concept they're all unique. some easier than others. they range from destruction derby's to mud races to throw the rag doll 100meters in the air to darts with the rag doll. there's 12 total. there's also online mode but i dunno what's in that because i returned it just before i got my PS2 online:( you can also race with a friend and 4 computer ppl or 6 humans online/LAN. i over heated my ps2 slim twice from playing this so long and i've rented it twice like i said earlier if you even just like racing a little bit this is THE game to rent. and if you love racing games this is a must have. also check out DESTRUCTION DERBY RAW (not available on gamefly but you can get for about $5 at any game store.
We just got this game and have had nothing but fun sice we put it in the PS2. The races are real, the games are hilarious, and the gameplay is realistic and yet manageable. Rent it, buy it, try it you will like it.
