I didn't know what to really expect when I placed the disc in my PS3. Then the opening cinematic pretty much explained it all! It’s a fast paced wacky arcade racing game.

First off, real time physics do not apply to this game. At times you'll find yourself spinning out or flipping out of control without even hitting anything. Usually this happens after a jump but the game is forgiving! The AI will always slow down when your in the back of the pack. Easy and normal are pretty easy but Hard does deliver a challenge when you need to place in the top of the pack. At times it can get frustrating when your near the top then spin out just to find yourself in last place. A tip I can give is save your boost towards the end stretch.

As for the cars pretty much all your favorite drivers are included. All the cars body designs are exactly the same with the exception of paint jobs that you unlock by earning career points. Be prepared for lost of smashing! The more smashes you make the more points you get.

The majority of the time your goal is just to place in a certain position to advance to the next race. Each race gives you 2 challenges to complete to gain more racing points. Also during the race your given more challenges but you have to complete them under a certain time. The racing position is your main goal, the challenges are just for getting extra points so you won’t get penalized for missing any.

Track designs are pretty nice, some of the tracks almost remind me of SF Rush. Some take you up the side of buildings and others have some huge jumps.

The only multiplayer offered is 2 player split screen.

Complete playing time for this game is very short. It took me about 5 hours from starting to getting the Platinum.

This game was pretty fun to play, i like that the tack went from flat tracks to the city, to the desert, to the beach, kinda cool. The gameplay was pretty smooth and the graphics were good. I actuall raced like 10 races back to back once i started playing. I was just excited to see what the next track would feature. The boost wasnt wat i expected, the car seemed to not do well when the turbo was hit, but maybe that was what it was supposed to do.
Overall it was a fun rent, but i probably would not buy it.

The game was fun but not at all what I was expecting. I wasn't expecting to have to crash other cars but still fun for me and my fiance` both.
