Firstly I must start with a warning: this game is VERY ADDICTIVE.
I am not a big gamer but do enjoy the occasional blast on a console so for me to have lost hours of my life playing this says something.
The selection of cars is excellent and as others have stated you can upgrade and alter them in various ways with the upgrades having a real effect on how the car feels.
There are various race events to take part in with 3+ races in each and to complete you must finish 3rd or higher overall, however I have noticed that you are ranked acording to your lowest finish eg. finish 1st, 1st and 2nd you will finish 2nd overall??. You can however re-race individual races to improve your overall position in the event.
As you progress more events become available with sensible ranking in the professional series, scoring points for each race and building to crown a winner.
I have awarded 4 stars as I would have liked a couple of extra features:
- practice laps before the race to get to know the track.
- qualification to decide the grid positions (you appear to get placed according to your cars ability or the type of race)
Overall this game is fun, competative and most importantly of all has the gameplay to keep you coming back.
