This game was fun for a while. Not as addicting at Mario Kart, but still better than the average rating it has received. It is not difficult to advance and open new tracks, challenges. Just maybe there aren't enough of them. The race play itself is very fun and team work is rewarded. The rivals aspect I don't really get, but it did allow new characters to be added. All in all it's a worthy rental.
This is a great game. I dont usualy play or watch NASCAR, but after playing this game, I think that I will. The game features drivers from NASCAR and after playing it I now have a good sence of some of the drivers around the sport. The game has multiple courses to race. The gameplay is easy and the power-ups give it a fun twist. I also enjoyed teaming up with a driver. During a race when you and your partner are close to each other a lightning bolt will connect you and eventualy you will be able to get a power boost as a result of it. This is a great game and i suggest that you give it a try.
