I got this game as part of a bundle and quite frankly I wish I'd have selected a different game. There's hardly any racing at all. You only take part in the Piston Cup races after completing some mini missions, even then you go in a straight line. The mini missions are quite easy and there's not that many. I was expecting the game to be similar to the PS2 game, but it's totally not. Maybe I didn't read the back of the game very well and was expecting too much, but I wasn't overly impressed. Doesn't come with download play either, but you can have 2 player mode as long as the other player has the game card too.
