Good for what it is...
on 4 December 2007
I have to say I really enjoyed playing this game. Yes, the developers have concentrated more on the mod'ing experience than on the pure driving gameplay, but I think this is fine. It's not supposed to be a game to rival the driving experience of Forza & Gran Turismo etc.
The game's depth comes from the car & decal editors which provide nearly limitless entertainment if you're in to that sort of thing. If you're not, then don't buy the game.
There's a huge variety of different online & offline events to get involved in which is good.
I would however criticise (a) The balancing between drifting & racing...far too much of the former. (b) The variety of offline opposition and associated car decals (c) When I finally worked out how to use some of the online features (car / decal trading etc.), I could hardly ever find enough people at my level to meet up with.
Overall, great fun. Not a perfect driving sim, but very well built car / decal mod'ing features. Online activity already fading, but may pickup after Christmas.
