First off I will preface this review by stating that I think the reviews that paint a poor picture of this game are misleading. I almost didn't get this game based on reviews. Everyone doing their due dilligence would be wary of a game with a middle of the pack rating. With that being said here is my take and I hope you find it helpful.

I give the game a 8 because I have not delved into the Online portion, but knowing that when a game comes out there are bound to be a few issues that hopefully the developer will remedy in a short time.

I played the career mode expecting the worst case scenario. Finishing dead last, building up the car, taking forever, over-aggressive CPU etc. What I expected and what I experienced were not even close. Starting off in Daytona I chose to play on Medium difficulty and the assists were off, (braking, steering, spin control). First qualifying session I grabbed the pole. Beginners luck? Maybe. So going into the duel I wrecked a few times. partially due to my own driving error, and a few times because a cpu driver wouldn't give up a position and neither would I on an inside lane turn resulting in them giving me a little nudge on my rear bumper sending me into a spin. Yellow flag immediately followed. Once green flag racing resumed I had to make my way back which through patience I did, until an over-agressive driver wanted to battle. NOT ALL CPUs were over-aggressive and let me pass cleanly. I led the race and finished 1st in both duel and the actual race.

So with that being said, it takes precision driving and there is wiggle-room for human error. Drafting you may get a little loose, and if you over-compensate well thats not going to end well. You dont mash the thumbsticks for your turns, learn to go into a curve and you'll be just fine. I think this is a good game to keep and worth the money if you have the patience.
