this is the worst racing game i have ever played i wish i had never played it. it is a disgrace to the racing game community. dont we all remember illegal racing games where cops chased you and you got to trick out your car well not any more now you follow the rules. this also includes the idea if you hit the dirt or touch the brakes youll just spin out. so in other words this was one of the worst video games ive ever played. DO NOT RENT/BUY THIS GAME.
I will have to admit, I was excited to get this game due to the reviews I had read about it. In all honesty, the handling is horrible. At half throttle, the Nissan 350Z spun out... I am not an expert but I have driven some high performance sports cars, and a 350Z with a turbo(not to mention other illegal upgrades) was one of them. This game makes it seem impossible to drive this car. Codemasters usually gives up some pretty good games so you might understand why I was disappointed. F1:2010 blows this game out of the water, at least handling wise. The graphics were by far, clean and crisp, and put my PS3 through it's computing paces. Other than that, the gameplay is far from realistic.
I had this game for an entire weekend, played it many times but ended up frustrated by the handling and load time. My personal opinion, if you want graphics, gameplay and realistic handling, get Gran Turismo instead. I would much prefer to mow the lawn than to play this game again.
