Ever wondered what it would be like to be the worlds worst raceing driver? Then this is the game for you.
Before the game is fully loaded you are put in a 650bhp car on a track with no idea how to drive. You are left mashing the keyboard tying to find the throttle control while the other cars leave you in their dust. Meanwhile your pit-chief (played by the single most annoying voice actor in the world) is patronising you. "Well done, You can finish this race!"
After about 20mins you get the option to set your controls and preferences. Not that is helps much as most preferences seem to be track specific and need to be changed very single race.
The lack of practice laps and qualifying means you are dropped in the deep end in every race. The challenge of the game is in learning the tracks rather than going fast as the AI for the most part is quite slow. That is until you get a team mate. Your team mate is only ever good at one style of racing, but in that style they become your biggest rival, often costing you the race.
It's a damn shame. This game has a really nice driving engine and the sponsorship deals are a great idea, but they don't make up for all the flaws that the developers seem to think are features. I hope I never have to listen to that pit chief again for the rest of my life.
