I saw this game and it reminded me of NASCAR Rumble for the old PS1 so I got really excited to play it. NASCAR Rumble was one of my all time favorites because it was simple, easy to play and fun. I got 26 achievements and 430 gp out of this game but not without sacrificing my blood pressure. Two words: RUBBERBAND AI. There's nothing worse that making your way to the front only to be passed by 12 cars once you get there. The AI runs on rails and you can't shake them no matter how hard you draft, slam or beat on them. And that's the object of the game! Drifting, slamming and drafting are all part of the game but it doesn't help. When the AI does it, though, get ready to sream things like "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" or "REALLY?" or everyone's favorite "AWWWW COME ON!" I like a challenge, but I hate being slapped around so if you like games that raise your blood pressure, make you mad and end up with you throwing a controller (I stopped before I thre one) then please rent this game. Otherwise, save your sanity and get something else!
