Good game but not so much multiplayer
on 3 January 2013
Got this for my Dad as a Christmas present. Just as well seeing as you have to register it by Steam which I don't have. (Fortunately Dad does!) But I was not aware of this when purchasing.
I would have got the wii version but we hadn't had our wii set-up for a while due to decorating so I got the PC version. Nevertheless the game promised 4 player multiplayer and I assumed you would be able to play with 2 people at the keyboard. This was not the case. There are a set of keyboard controls locked in that you can't change and the only way to add another player is for them to use a console controller attached to the PC, which we didn't have. I was disappointed not to be able to play the game with my Dad. He (rather sweetly) sent off for a console control without telling me so now we can play together but not the whole family as I had thought with 4 player. So I still rather wish I had got the wii version.
Thought I should let other customers know as I was unaware of these issues when purchasing. Maybe I missed something but I don't think either of these things were made clear.
It is a good game though! Very like Mariokart or Wacky Races! Good for Formula 1 fans after fun but with not so much skill!
