Many people complain about the menus and how they take forever to start. Once you install the game a prompt comes up which lets you install all the tracks and menus and once done, everything is much faster. Mine only takes up to 30 seconds max! Moving onto the actual game, this is a must buy for any car racing fan. they are over 1000 cars, some are taken from previous versions and are not as detaiiled as they latest ones, the tracks are great and so is the ability to create your own track. Graphics are simply amazing, including all the rain, cars, tracks, etc.. Many ways of tuning your cars and one may spend hours just doing this. There are races, liscenses, special events and 16 player online lobbies. One new feature is the kart racing which is really fun! Another interesting feature is the photo mode, where one can capture extremely beautiful photos of their cars in races at beautiful angles! There is also damage within the game (light and heavy) but you have to work your way up to unlock this. There are tons of unlockable content and hours of fun!
