I got this game on day of realise, and having spent the past few week trying to get to grips with this game, I just cant't get into it at all. The game just does'nt feel right.
There is no feel of speed with this game at all, and when playing career mode you feel like they have over done it with the power-ups, every couple of seconds you are getting pelted with something and you cant have a decent race because of it,
There is also no power sliding around corners, And some turn's due to the lack of power sliding you just shoot off the track which causes you to loose speed and then loose position in a race.
Yes there are penty of tracks and there are many short cuts to find on each of the tracks, But this does'nt make up for the other flaws of the game. Dont get me wrong I love a challenging racer but this game in part is to much of a challange...
On-line is better if you can get a match as at the moment there are not to many games to join on-line, Compared to Sonic and sega allstar racing transformed this comes a distant 2nd for me, and as the title says try this title before you buy as you may be wasting your cash..
