This is a fantastic game of racing and shooting cars. I am writing the review after completing the game and beating the final challenge.
Please be aware that this game features unusual top-down camera angle and will need a lot of practice to get used to it. Please see youtube videos. For example [...]
The good: + various tracks and environments like street race, driving on ice.. + several vehicles to choose from including a van, hummer.. + range of weapons from shotgun to rocket launcher + cars are upgradable with speed/handing/armour + handling of vehicles depends on skill + game runs smoothly + very good sounds
The (not so) bad: - generic music (volume can be set and even can be muted) - unpleasant driver voices (volume can be set and even can be muted) - game length - took me a total 14h and I wish the game would be longer - view on some tracks is obstructed - final challenge driver uses faster car then player can get - marathon type of race is boring as it does not allow use of weapons and has 42 laps - no opponents to be found online
