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.
i waited in line for 2 1/2 days in the cold and rain in a leaky tent to buy my ps3 the day they first came out. i brought my ps3 home and played this game and wanted to smash my brand new ps3 because i couldnt believe i wasted so much time to play such a horrrrrible game. but then i played madden and all was right in the world.
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.
