The core racing/police gameplay of Rivals is fun, but the problem is the required connection to EA servers to play a single player game. It's frustrating to wait 5+ mins to connect to a game in order to progress through the "story" of the game. Once connected, it works great and it's neat to see other racers racing around the track and compete with their fastest times.
