Pretty fun racing game, cartoony, with impossible physics, but overall worth checking out.
100 or so cars, decent customization, but many cars act and upgrade similiar to each other, and some of the stuff is simply not possible (like a maxed out older supra being as fast or faster then a maxed dodge viper, ford gt, etc.).
I had alot of fun putting graphics on each car, but that gets old fairly quick, plus you have to unlock visuals, and you really do not know what you are getting until spent your point to unlock it.
Bleh... Okay the graphics are sharp and vibrant but not really impressive. The game's sound track is pretty decent also. What urks me is the dialoge of the narrator and the "competition", it's so forced and phony it makes you embarassed to be a young person. Gameplay is so-so. If you're used to realistic driving simulations, you'll find this game to be very simplistic, performance mods, seem to do absolutly nothing, and the tracks are not even challenging. There are some pretty cool features, like customization of your car, and placing side or spectator bets to win money. The pink slips feature is also fun in a frustrating way, especially when you lose your car that you worked so hard on. Multiplayer is actually interesting, now that theres some real competition. That feature along makes it worth to actually buy the game. If you like cars, and would like to see your hand at customization, I recommend this game. The aftermarket body kits are actual kits from vendors, if your lucky you might even find your real-life car in the game, this gives you a great way to see what your car could look like without spending the money.
I was not really impressed w/ the circuit racing but the drifting has got me hooked to this drifting masterpiece!!! You really have to know what you're doing with the throttle, brake and angles. The cars are fairly real in their handling, power and looks but not quite Need for Speed or GT quality. Customization is awesome except wheels are not very shiny. They put so much effort into the paint and graphics but very few select rims look any better than white/bright silver. The other aspect of this game that dropped my jaw literally is that one of the vehicles that does not get enough recognition because in my opinion the first generation model has taken too much of it, is the 70 camaro. I happen to own a real one so of course I'm very pleased to see it in the game. Overall, I have to say that w/ the betting, car selection, AMAZING DRIFTING EXPERIENCE, dna, great courses and all the different races to chose from, I'm quite impressed!!! Anybody who loves a real drifting experience, I highly recommend you try this one.
