The tracks can be quite good too, but what is the greatest weakness is the ease in which the game is completed. I will have completed it in about 3 weeks at about 20-30 minutes a day. I am sure some will do it quicker. I realised too late in the game that what appears to be an opponent is a wingman (which presumably is someone on your side), a nice concept but I think they cause me more bother than help. If you race and avoid crashing within 10 seconds of the finish line, you will always win it seems.
Ignoring back story and opponents this is still an exciting game just simply to race and come first. Its years since it was released so one should be able to get it cheap and then move it on. I got mine cheap and will keep it to revisit in a few years time as I love racing games. Nothing will match Mario Kart as an all round racing game, but this one does have ultra-realistic scenery for its time.
First impression - 9/10 Great graphics, good handling coontrols, wingmen and good old nitrous.
Pick-up-and-go - 7-10 It is quite easy to get to grips with the game but setting up for a quick race may be confusing. Some of the options I had never heard of, like wingmen.
Graphics - 8/10 Good graphics on the racing cars and the tracks, but general traffic only has a few types of cars such as vans, taxis and normal cars, and they seem to have been ignored on the details.
Soundtrack - 4/10 Wow! It has real songs! Well, 20 seconds of each one and that's it. There are about 6 songs, each 20 seconds long before it fades out to the next one, therefore you hear the songs more than once each race.
Story - 5/10 Yes, it's a good story. You go round winning races to unlock parts, points and bosses. Once you complete one boss, you unlock the next zone to complete. Each time you gain reputation and a step closer to find out who killed your brother. I won't tell you who, but I think it is a rubbish ending to a decent plot.
Cars - 7/10 Some nice cars here. The DB9, a 911, Ford GT (a Clarkson favorite) but not enough spread. There are no very bad cars, and the first car (VW Golf GTI) is not that bad. The cars only vary when they have been upgraded, otherwise they are more or less the same.
Difficulty settings - 2/10 In short, there are none. I completed the game with the Golf on my first try. Not hard. This game has been made too easy without the option of being hard. Saying that though, the AI cars will change slightly so they are marginally too good for the Golf and too slow for the Aston Martin DB9. In theory.Read more ›
