Way Too Touchy

The controls for this game are weird to say the least each car is a drift car they spin out so easy and to keep it straight is impossible well at least on hard and professional driving but still the car controls are wack I dont want to have to turn on TCS and all aids to beat a tier 3 race. I had a porsche cayman and everytime you hit the gas it veers to the side, correct it, veers to the other side back and forth til you start doing donuts yaaaaaaa!!!!!! No, bad. it is impossible to control the vehicle yet everyone else is doing great, and when you add upgrades the other cars in the race seem to now have upgrades but I doubt they are all on pro driving mode but I dont know this game pisses me off so bad, it is similar to gran turismo but the physics of the cars suck terribley which makes it practically the oppostie of GT . I will hate this game more if I have to go down to race driving settings to be able to keep control of my car because it has too much power why the helk would you make it pro if you can't control the darn thing? And even if someone can drive the car on the road it will be completly sideways the whole time from rear wheel spin it sucks!

Based purely on gameplay i think it's a ten...

It's the most visceral driving/racing game I've ever played.

Unfortunately,it's short enough on features i'm tempted o give it an 8 despite the exhilarating gameplay...I split the difference.

Replays are bare bones and cant be saved a far as i can tell.

No system link or split screen.

Long load times(even when downloaded to the hard drive).

Customization options dont come anywhere close to Forza.
