3 DissapointingZen111 | 10/01/2011 | See all Zen111's reviews (1)I bought this Collector's Edition really wanting to love it and rave about it to everyone I know and in the end I stopped playing the game after a week. The game itself is probably the best racing simulator out there, but my God, the repetitive grinding of the A-Spec Career is just so boring. The game's career mode is completely lifeless.The 200 page booklet is great, I really enjoyed reading it as I love having all the inside information. However, the cars that you recieve from the Voucher Code? Not so great. They are only really useful at the start of the game where you're racing against cars that basically drive the whole course at around 30 mph.Also, the postcards - sure, they look great but they are COMPLETELY useless lol! I mean, what exactly are you going to do with them?To sum up, this game handles beautifully, but it is extremely unrewarding - winning a race in A-Spec mode doesn't fill you with a sense of achievement, it's just "Oh, another grind completed for me to get a better car." Rinse. Repeat. The online mode is awfully structured but provides the most thrills. I had a 2 lap, 1 on 1 nurburgring night race with an unknown player and it was the best race I've ever had in my gaming life. My Ferrari 458 trumped (this car is fantastic in the game), and the sounds of it screeching up the Nurburgring corners and hills is unforgettable.Unfortunately, moments like this are few and far between in this game. After all the production time of this game, Polyphony have left me dissapointed with the end product. A shame, since I love the series.
