Wears out its welcome fast

This game is fun for a week, then after that it becomes very repetitive. Customizations are very skimpy, the only options you have are some predetermined upgrades, paint options, and boring liveries.

The damage models are poor, when you beat the daylights out of your car it should look mangled, but in this game there is no evidence of damage, they look dirty rather than damaged.

There is good news though. The game feels frantic and fast, and the cockpit view is definatly the most fun way to play in my opinion.

All in all a fun game in moderation, but not much appeal after you get through all the racing modes.

this is a very good game but its not the usual need for speed, the gameplay is more of a gran torismo driving simulation, its fun and serious all of the menu options and customization for the cars are the best. It does not matter if you are a novice or expert you can tune the car for any style of driving
