    A fun game, and the inclusion of a character driven -oh ho - plot to be the right direction for the genre to go. But it’s not for anyone who is either looking for the next-generation visual thrill of its competition, or heavy realism.

    Unfortunately, Ryan comes off as an unlikable, whiney cliche. Being that this is a racing game, its ultimate success resides in the on track action, as it should.

    The story is laughably bad, and McKane has to be one of the most unlikable protagonists ever. Even worse, the racing gameplay just isn’t that exciting, largely due to lackluster handling and A.I. competition.

    It is a really great mix between racing, strategy and storyline! I love it! Very realistic game with lots of different cars and tracks.

The other cars on the track do their best to block you or drive you off the circuit!! Very addicted! Full Review »

    Don't believe the hype. Sure, this game LOOKS great, and the storyline is a neat idea. However, the control is terribly frustrating. Don't believe the hype.

It's not a bad game, but there are many out there that are a LOT better. Full Review »
