Spoiled by online play
on 19 November 2009
I looked forward to this game, played the demo, parted with my cash, even bought a steering wheel.
The game is good fun to play. The graphics and sound are good and there's more than enough cars. You can pick any car you want to drive and just dive in or you can go into career mode and work your way up through the classes.
Apart from some of the worst AI drivers thinking the back of my car is for use instead of brakes there's not too much wrong at all UNTIL you play online. I've seen several reviews recently claiming it's a backward step from where previous versions were. I've not raced online before so I can't confirm that, but it is awful. You can't race 'normal' cars, you can't set up to race with damage options turned on (unless you do it just with friends, so it's like going on the dodgems because there's no deterrent to stop people bashing into you.
A good game spoiled by terrible online options.
