    Nice looks, cool sound, lots of cars, many tracks. Vanishing Point seems to have all that it takes to make a great racing game. All but one thing: good controls. The handling is so floaty that it makes the game nearly unplayable. In comparison, even duds like Buggy Heat and SegaGT play quite well.

    The biggest difference in this and other racers is the adaptive AI. The other cars do not run the same line all the time. They will cut corners, and will try to run you off the road if need be.

    Boasting some of the most impressive physics and visuals ever to find their way into a current-generation console racer, VP is another of those damnable "must-have" titles for anyone who appreciates a finely tuned driving experience mated to state-of-the-art graphics.

    Resist the urge to give up. You'll be glad you did.
