I have been very patient with this game, as for the first few weeks of release the online multiplayer was broken. The singleplayer kept me going until they finally resolved the issues and it has now turned into a fairly decent game. It has kept me occupied for hours and the gameplay is massive! There is so much to do both online and offline.
The controls are a bit arcadey and seem hard to handle at first, but with practise it becomes natural. I suggest turning the steering sensitivity to the minimum setting in the options menu; that way you will get on much easier. Its nice to cruise and race around with mates in a massive open online world that integrates singleplayer with multiplayer. Both maps of Ibiza and Hawaii are huge, with plenty of high speed roads and collectibles. There are still a few glitches with the online game modes but its getting better.
At first glance of this game I would only have given it 2 stars, but now overall I give it 4. Excellent gameplay, decent graphics and rather a lot of fun! would recommend it too any driving/racing game fan.
