While being an interesting concept, this game is pay-to-play despite its "Free-2-Drift" model. It is far to easy to crash, and when you crash, you have to use repair kits and restart the ENTIRE race. Further more, repair kits are far and few. If you choose not to repair your car and quit the race, you also lose your car. The more upgraded your car becomes, the more repair kits it costs, and the higher chance you run of losing the car. This is a free-to-play model of the game "RIDGE RACER: Unbounded" You may as well buy that game for a more solid and fair experience.

BEWARE! This is the worst game I've played in a very long time! The physics are broken and seem to be designed to make you crash very often! And you will! This game is literally the pay-to-play model in all of its disgust for everyone to go through. This is not a real free-to-play game, and it is seriously broken as a racing game! Go to Need For Speed or the old Ridge Racers if you want a fun experience.

It's free, it's basically 'unbounded' in an F2P model which isn't too bad, and the asynchrous driving ROCKS... I have a couple of laps a day for freebies and it's good, FREE, fun... what's not to like?!

This game is not realistic at all. It is not Need for Speed (not calling that one realistic either...). THis does not have any real cars. This is just A FUN CAR GAME!. This game brings me back to the arcade racers of the 90's. Its free to play, and you can have a great time and spend LOTS of time WITHOUT speding a dime. But, once your in, your nor going to want to stop. On my first playthough, I played about 2 hrs, non-stop....fantastic game, non-stop action, power ups...love it! Get it!
