  1. Unlocking all of the tracks, cars and other goodies will add some replay value but you will definitely want to put a few weeks between yourself and the game before you go at it again just so that everything doesn't seem so familiar.

    Severely mediocre, but still not nearly as bad as some of the racers that hit the Nintendo DS in the past few weeks. It doesn't redeem Visual Impact for its horrendous Burnout Legends conversion, but at least, judging by the vast improvement of this racer, the French developer isn't completely incompetent.

    Ford Racing 3 is another DS game that could've been. At least it's not a total failure and it does provide some hope for the future.
  4. A dull and clumsy racing game that will disappoint even the most forgiving Ford enthusiasts.
  5. All in all, the shoddy in-game physics, sense of weightlessness given to the cars, and jaded track designs should be enough to turn the average consumer away.
