Good Arcade Racer

Overview
====================
I don't think many of the reviews are fair that are below 5-6. They are either complaining that it is an arcade racer or that it isn't like old Ridge Racer games. All you had to do is read a preview or review and you wouldn't be suprised. Neither of those are good reasons to rate a game as a 1... A 1 should be received for a horrific game (worst you've ever played). This game would not fit that description for any rational person.

The bottom-line is that this is an arcade racer that is a mix of Burnout and Split Second (ie. crashing other racers and environment destruction). The game is quite fun at what it is. My single gripe would be like other reviewers that the drifting is hard to adjust to.

Another thing of note is that this game doesn't allow customization of your car. This doesn't bother me, but I'm sure others will complain since they didn't read a preview or review.

Pros
=================
1) fun arcade style racer with environment destruction
2) nice graphics (not too dim on my tv - see other reviews complaints)
3) track builder

Cons
==================
1) drifting is little hard to adjust to

i'm usually a big fan of racing games but lattley they have fallen off. Split/second was a step in the right direction and i feel this game is too. one problem no story but i guess if i had to choose between no story and a story that is cheesy and repetitive i would choose no story. The game play is awsome once you get the drifting down it is pretty nice you move from corner to corner so fast (i like fast) lots of stuff to destroy. one of the best things is almost all walls and polls you can drive right through so there is none of that annoying, getting caught on a little fence like in need for speed. great game definetly try

Do not let the low ratings discourage you from playing a great racing game. The graphics are great, racing action is fast and furious. Mastering the drifting is the key to playing this game to its fullest potential. Some of the best racing in any game that I have ever played!
