Okay Racing Game

Overview
===================
This game is an arcade racer that sports track deformation (ala Split Second) during the race. For me it felt all too similar to something I've played before and not really done any better. I think it is a worthwhile game if you like arcade racers (rent or buy). There just wasn't enough wow for me.

Pros
===============
1) graphics are pretty good (not stellar, but alright)
2) decent number of modes and customization options

Cons
===============
1) nothing new - felt like I've played this game before
2) story is weak (although not much is expected in this genre)

Good but not great

I liked this game, but to keep it short, the graphics are lacking, the story is meh, and the online play didn't connect at all. The soundtrack is horrid, but since you can play your own music, it's a non-issue. However, the Split/Second like destruction is great, with buildings falling as you're racing on top of them, airplanes crashing into the course, and at one point a full-on tornado completely obliterates the course while you're driving through it. Definitely worth a rent.

Worth Playing But Something is Lacking

As a fan of racing games, this game just left me feeling like it was "just ok" and worth playing. The clunky feel of the cars and the inability to feel like you have accomplished something leave me wanting more out of this game. The story is ridiculous, I don't even know why you have one. Since the PSN has been down the only thing I think that can save this game would be the online play which I haven't been able to try. This one is a renter at best. If you are getting it for the destruction I would suggest Split Second over this one.
