Really Bad

boring and not enough speed!

I found this game boring really quick. You just keep turning to the left and I wanted to go faster. I was way behind the AI cars and wanted to go faster to catch up to them but couldn't. I was already going as fast as I could. I tried a mission game and couldn't get my speed fast enough to qualify. So I gave up, stuck it back in its envelope and it's going back with less than 20 minutes of play. I want a racing game that I can go fast with like Excite Truck. I guess I'm spoiled by this game as you have the turbo to give you more speed.

Deserves an 8, Yet It's a 4

Decent graphics at 480. Easy entry into game-play. Phenominal AI. One of the tightest steering in a driving game.

Not much replay value and challenging from the start. Contrast was terrible for me.

Basically, there are only two game types. First is plain racing, which I loved. But, after a couple of rounds I lost interest because there's not much there. No season type racing game. The second type you have challenges. I was stuck on the third one in the very first challenge. You cannot continue until you have finished all the challenges. I tried for an hour to beat it but was unable to. This is why I gave it a 4 instead of an 8.

The AI was phenominal; at first I would tail whip the cars in front of me making them swerve, lose speed, or hit the wall. Then a few rounds of that, the AI realized what I was doing and would watch out for me. DOH!

It is very easy to get into this game. I was having problems steering at first, but then I placed my elbows on my arm-rests and it drove like a dream. I'm sure having the latest update wouldn't hurt, either.

The contrast was another problem. Even though I upped the brightness, I could hardly see the right side whenever passing the grand stands.

And for some reason it gave me a headache. I admit this is a well tuned little racing game. But, the lack of a tour or season, challenging challenges, and giving me a headache didn't make it seem worthwhile.
