Not all that.
Fantastic graphics and scenery, but no gameplay. They've done a great job creating paradise city, but I think they have over done it. Miles and miles of boring staight roads with a small twisty section, unclear map makes navigation a pain.. There's barely any traffic on the roads and the 'racing' is pathetically easy, marked man and road rage are more fun, but it all gets a bit tiresome to quickly. Ok for a bit of no brain mahem, but race fans shouldn't bother.
