First, the graphics are superb and whilst graphics do not make a game, they are worth a mention and may keep you playing longer than you would otherwise.
The main issue I have with this game is that with little or indeed no error, you can find yourself going from 1st to 6th (last place) in a matter of seconds. Now I don't mind if I make a mistake losing a few places, but sometime going full pelt on a straight you can lose a few places, any slight slowdown and you will go from 1st to 6th.
As I've said the graphics are great and the game is easy to pick up and races can be fun with the A.I. cars bullying you as much as you bully them. But ultimately the game seems to have some sort of catch up whereby even driving very well when in first place is rewarded with the player frustratingly seeing his first place disappear all too often.
There are much better races and also much worse racer and at the current price being offered on play, this is just about worth a buy.
