This Is One of those Games That sounds a lot better then it really is. The biggest reason is the way that the computer controlled Cars seem to have unlimited Power Plays and when they use it they are sure to hit your car with it and then there's the deal where when the Player uses it there is a great chance that it is going to Wreck the player and Not affect the AI Cars, but They Never get caught in Their own

I give this game credit for attempting something new, but it's just a dull repetitive game that never goes anywhere. The concept is good, and I wouldn't mind seeing it revamped into a more complete experience. The fact is after you've played the first three episodes the game has nothing new to offer. There are some exciting moments, but they loose luster quickly and become overshadowed by the limitations of the game.
There's not much going on with gameplay here, you only have three control options--gas, brake, and powerplay. The objective is to drive as fast as possible while trying to avoid obstacles and explosions. No matter how far ahead you get, you're opponents will always catch you. It's "rubber-band" racing. I found it was best not to be in the lead for most of the race.
My biggest complaint is the banner tags used to identify each racer during the tournament races. The banners are so large that they obscure most of the road ahead of you. For a game that depends on avoiding obstacles this is a horrible combination.
When I went back to replay early episodes with better cars and earn more credits the racing actually got more difficult. I was doing worse with better vehicles, it made no sense to me at all. The driving in general isn't that good, I couldn't really tell the difference between the cars and I didn't even care because I lost interest in the game after 4 or 5 hours. Definitely a rental only.
