If you want a beautiful, fast, racing game to show off the vita's hardware, look no further.
If you want a solid, well balanced, engaging racer, well...
Starting with the difficulty, its just brutal. Starting about halfway through the 2nd "season" You'll be getting hit by enemies weapons left and right, obliterating all speed you've build up. The tracks require serious memorization, certain vital shortcuts are almost impossible to see, and the AI has no plans to wait for you to catch on. There are very few "cars" to choose from and earning most of those will require serious grinding of races to get enough xp. If you want to play online, you will also need to shell out more money to get an online pass.
I played for a couple days, got about half way done with the campaign and returned it to Gamefly. Thank God I didn't make the mistake of buying this on launch.
