Not Perfect but Fun in Short Bursts
on 13 March 2012
As a racing game this is definetly in the "Arcade" category.Most damage that occurs to the selected vehicle appears to have no effect on performance unless the crash is so severe that a restart level is activated.Braking on an apparently icy road at 200 mph brings the vehicle to an incredibly abrupt halt!
However,it cannot be denied that the actual gameplay is very entertaining.Graphics,sound effects (Turn off the Dire Music!)and gameplay are top drawer.What's not top drawer are the annoying scenarios that occur between some levels involving your character,fighting,running,jumping and other such nonsense.Truly Tiresome!The long time waiting for each level to load is also below par in this day and age and spoils the flow of the game.
In my view a great game to play for 30 minutes or so but fails in the addictive quality category that excellent racing games have going for them.
