Ok, 1st off this game looks good, especially for a Sega game. The car models look nice, but the rest is average. The track deforming they have been talking about is a nice touch but since the game is more arcade (floaty, horrible controls) that feature is weak.
I couldn't recommend this as a purchase to anyone. DiRT is far better and if you want multi-player online racing then go and get the one of the Rallisport challenge games for the original Xbox, those are more fun then this game.
This game could have used more time, like till middle of next year to get things figured out.

In a world full of racers that focus on learning to drive the cars instead of actual racing, SRR is very nice change of pace. I play a lot of online racers, and it always amazes me to see 3/4 of the field off the track in the first corner. Whats fun about that? SRR lets you race, plan and simple. No over the top arcade stunts ala Burnout, no lame attempts at "realistic driving" (besides, what realistic about holding a piece of plastic in your living room)? SRR gets you doing something you love, racing, and removes the gimmicks. This game is fun the moment you start. Great graphics, great spot on control, and outstanding online racing. You will no longer have to worry about some griefer trying to send you off the track so he can beat you. Do yourself a favor, give SRR a try and you will see how racing should be, fun. But if you like trying to fight with a piece of plastic, in an attempt to fool yourself into thinking your playing a real life simulation...this is not the game for you.
Sega needs to lean from the producers of DIRT!!! Do not waste your time renting this one. I literally played it for about 15 mins and it was so bad I put it right back in the mail! Don't walk away from this game run!!!!!!
