Quality game with hours of driving fun,
on 21 April 2008
This game has at least 6 tracks from twisty turny to straight higher speed roads to some dual carriageways.
The good thing for me is the good perception of speed, you're not just straight to 100 mph in 2 seconds it takes time and you feel a bit like in a real car and with the added realism options you can't do 90mph round corners.
I am personally a fan of driving with traffic enabled in games but yet again this is another game with ridiculous traffic, okay they don't messabout on faster roads but as soon as they take a corner they grind to a halt and do about 17 mph round a bend. Also they tend to start bouncing all over the road, really this happens, but on the full simulation mode it isn't as bad...
As decent racing games go, this isn't a bad game. Good surroundings, reasonable traffic system, good cars with a proper car dynamics (eg:steering and acceleration), although no proper dash view which is a shame.
I would recommend this game for anyone who likes to race on more than just a boring old race track but also likes to drive fast through the lanes and overtake traffic etc.
There's no pimping of motors in this game to make every car exactly the same and there is fun to be had exploring all the tracks in free mode as well as all the races.
One note to make, on older machines eg:Pentium 4 or duo with basic graphics you'll need to turn some of the graphic options lower but the game's still good just thirsty at times.
