Love Racing Games, Hated This One

Very limited tracks and the cars don't offer enough variety in handling characteristics to make this game interesting. It gets old really quickly. Fine for a couple of hours, but you'll end up sending it back quickly.

Challenging

I would just like to start this by saying that SimBin didn't make ANY of the Nascar games, so i'm not sure where UrbanMerc got that info from. They are the developers behind the hit GTR racing series on the PC market.

Graphically, the game feels dated. Little to no Aliasing, decent shadows, and an overall just sort of bland image.

Graphics take a back seat to the bread and butter of the game tho, which would be the Physics. If you've ever played the PC games you know what to expect here, but if not, than this game will definitly be a challenge for you. Fans of Forza will adjust easier than most, but even for me, it took a little while. Steady braking, constant speeds and turning ability are needed here to be succesful.

My major complaint with the game is lack of staying power. I don't normally ask for much out of a racing game, but something in single player other then a straight up championship mode would have been great.

I'm not sure why this has gotten such a bad rating. It's far from perfect, but it's not bad either. It's a fun solid no frills racer. I actually find it to be a breath of fresh air. Graphic's are comparable with other 360 racing games. Game play is just plain racing. No drag, no drift, just racing. It's actually a challenge to have to brake properly around corners and learn each track. I love all different styles of racing games, this one included. If you just want to race, pick this one up.
