The races are very boring. The computer racers a very predictable. Driving machanics of the game are poor it reminded me of racing games from 10 years ago. The free play mode is huge and if you try to find something highlighted in the distance be ready for a long trip and pack a lunch. MotorStorm is a much better experience with better computer AI.
From now on I'm going to listen to the way user's of this site rate a game. When it first came out it was sitting in my que. After a week or so the rating slowly changed from a 7 to a 4.6. Hmmm I thought...maybe these people dont like driving games...I think it looks cool.
Oh no my friends! Listen to the people! They do know whats up! This game is WEAK! I gave it a 4/10. It's pretty dissapointing considering this game comes from the same company who gave us DIRT and GRID, two games I own and are excellent.
Graphics are not up to par for PS3 standards, sound is pretty terrible with little to no music. The engine sounds arent that great either. Ive found the best way to play is turn the sound down and put in a CD of your own on the stereo.
Controls are another thing, also bad. Many of the cars are difficult to control, kinda like there is an invisible layer of ice on everything you drive on. Plus there is ONLY ONE VIEW! Who ever heard of a driving game where you can't change the view?!?! I wish I could lace this reviews with curse words but this site is pretty lame when it comes to that. Unreal...
All of the above just made this game incredibly frustrating. No fun.
There are a couple of nuggests in this heap of feces. The game is incredibly huge. You could spent hours and hours just driving around in Free Mode. Also it is kinda fun to launch cars and bikes off of high places. But thats pretty much it.
Again I plead you guys to listen to the people when they rate a game a 4.5 out of 10. This means stay away! Dont even waste your time on this!
