This game is fun to play!! That's all anyone needs to know.
As for those of you who say it is repetitive, IT'S A RACING GAME, ALL RACING GAMES ARE REPETATIVE, this one just happens to be fun. You don't have to worry about all the endless car 'tweaks' like: camber or spring rubbers or pit crew jersey colors!! Just pick a track, pick a car and RACE.
I think that the demo is a fair representation of the game, that being said I completely love it. If you were a fan of the old Sega Rally games or of the Daytona seriese you will also love this game.
There could be a few more tracks and a few more cars, but other than that it is at the very least worth a rent. The only issue I have come across is horrible draw in. It was not present in the demo nor have I heard of anyone else having this prolbem, so it leads me to believe that I have gotten a defective disc.
The draw in can be a hinderence while driving the first lap but once you get the track layout memorized it is not really an issue. Again I am unsure of whether this is just as issue I am experiencing or if it is widespread. Hopefully others will chime and we can figure out the problem.
