I did look well into this game before making a purchase as I was unsure if the demo was as exciting as it got, don't be fooled this game is highly addictive. The game is sectioned into races:
1 - 1 where you race against the comp to a check point
Take down where you have to take out a set number of cars within a set period of time
Race simply a race against 7 other cars to a specific destination
Marked man where 3 cars try to take you out before you get to a set destination
You start with a basic license and the more you win the higher your grade. Races are spread all over the course and highlighted well across the map.
Personally I'm a fiend for online play but I have'nt even been online yet which says alot about the single player game also I refuse to go online with a pony car!
Negatives which are really nit picking, the soundtrack is pretty lame. The paint jobs are dull and if you look at the cars there are no drivers which does not make sense. The worst part is not being able to resart an event but if your good you won't have to worry about that!
Overall I've given this a fair 4 stars as I believe 5 should be exceptional. This game is good and great fun but I feel people get taken away with the whole 5 star rating.
