This game is very fun and crisp...the first time you play it. After that, you realize how bad the graphics are for a PS3 game, and how repetitive teh gameplay is. At best, it looks like a bad PS2 game. The gameplay is always the same. Hold X, tap Square on corners to drift, and ocassionally press R2 for nitrous. Very boring unless you like bad looking and repetitive racing games.
Maybe I hated this game because I am not a huge drifting fan. I started working my through the game, got about 20 races in and hit the wall. I couldnt buy another win. So I thought I'd play online, very cool and smooth when not 14 people in the room. I raced 30 times, and the best I ever got was 2nd out of 5 people.
I'm a pretty decent driver in all other games, but something about this game put it in the toilet. The physics are so off its frustrating. The best thing about the game is the arcade game when it first starts.
usps delv. this game to me today from gamefly and i played it for about a half hour before i put it in envelope and mailed it back.the people who made this game do they drive like this? all over the road hoping to make every corner just spinning around and if you dont (drift) you hit almost every corner slow you down or crash mean while the game is telling you how bad your doing in the race or do you like a real racing game like need for speed you can actually play and win with driving skill not sliding skill not realistic at all.
