Good things about the game > Fun and addicting. > No waiting for online play > Drive in a free open world with different things to do. > Off roading and trying to scale that Highs Mountains is quite fun. But pointless.
Things I dislike > The Driving has a very arcade feel car control is snappy and no precise. > Too easy to spin. Left foot braking will almost always send you into a spin. > Some cars pull to the right when full speed is reached. Example Audi TT annoying but manageable. > Online play is fun but only once you are further in the game. > Very hard trees
Things I would like to see in updates > The ability to sell/trash cars for quick cash and/or trade with online friends. > Why do all racing games have titanium trees? Not a big problem but WHY? > Difference in sound when windows are down and difference on interface when signals are turned on. > Ability to turn on cruse control would be sic and the only game to ever have it. Think about it. Would make 55mph challenges much better. thanks

This game is awesome! The graphics are way better than they look in the trailer, the driving is not as good as GT5 or Forza(duh),but it does hav a simulator feeling to it. Also, theres 100+ miles of open road! The story is:
You start the game in a dream where it's your birthday and Tess(your boss in the game) gets you a Ferrari. You drive it for a few minutes until Tess wakes you up outta your dream. Then she gets mad and fires you, but then gets you into a competion named Solar Crown and shes the host. After that, a guy named Adam takes you to get a car and then shows you your house, which is a Caravan(LOL). But don't worry, as you earn money you'll buy and earn new cars, as well as homes.
Basically, the goal of the game is to become the most popular racer on the island. Good Luck!
the cars in this game are very realistic not a realistic as gran turismo but very acceptable. i like the idea of having an open world racing game but there not quite there yet. the actual driving isnt that good cars slide off the road way to easy. the two islands are very big and offer very little to do. i thought i was going to get to gamble in the casino but i found out that DLC cost $10. i wasnt going to pay that to gamble fake money. overall OK. but i wouldnt pay $50 for this game.
