This game could have been so good. I love the Jackspot mechanic, and it brought a lot of things I rather liked about Burnout Paradise to the table. I don't even mind the almost total lack of external customization. What ruined it for me is what is most important in this game and all games like it; the driving. The controls were clunky to the point that I found the game to be totally unplayable. The whole thing can only be described as unresponsive. There are large delays between button presses and in game action and the drifting does next to nothing and is impossible to control or get out of. And the product placement. All of the Billboards are adverts for the game's DLC or all the other companies that EA has taken over and destroyed (i.e. Bioware, Visceral) and something about that really bothered me. All in all, this game had a lot of really great ideas, but the execution of the main mechanic was so bad that I couldn't get more than 2-3 hours into it. And I was so looking forward to it too....

This game is a really good game, it has great graphics, and it has some pretty nice cars. But the bad parts about this game is that you have some of the best cars, but it really doesn't matter because the game is easy to beat.
