When I first heard about this game idea I was stoked, a race across the country between 200 drivers! When I played the run for the first time I was disappointed... they seemed to waste a great game concept, Instead of racing coast to coast , every turn, every mile, it's a series of mini races.... pass 6 drivers, pass 8 drivers, make up time by running though checkpoints... blah!
Instead of really being driven by an overall goal and leaving the creativity of winning the race to the player it is instead just your A-typical race game with just an idea of a bigger picture.
I sent this one back the same day I got it mostly due to the bad taste the first few missions left me with. I found the driving controls to be clunky and unresponsive, which is a huge problem for a game that's all about driving. The story line is pretty weak but I was willing to overlook that as long as the gameplay was fun. It's not. I'd much rather try one of the many alternatives to this game because even a game like GTA, where driving is secondary, is more fun to drive cars in.
