When I was younger I loved to play this game on the Saturn so I couldn't wait to play this. It was one of those games that I have been meaning to get since the day of release but never got around to it. Finally, I have managed to grab a copy for next to nothing and I must say that I am gutted I didn't get this earlier.
Considering this game is now over 3 years old, the graphics still hold their own against any other recent racer. The track deformation physics are superb so no lap is the same. The car modelling is spot on and the sound quality is very good. Where this game excels though is in its simplicity. The menus are stright forward and you can quite simply pick this game up, load it and play within 3 minutes. You can jump stright into a championship, building up points to unlock more cars, livery and tracks. There is also time trial, quick race and online play modes. I have not played online yet so I am not sure if people will still be playing this mode due to the gae of the game.
I will admit that this is not a game you will be playing for hours at a time but if you only have a short while to spare this is the perfect filler!
I really enjoy this game and if you want a change from the simulation type reacers, then this is the game for you.
