Some reviews mention that this game has flaws - like being a top-down racer in the first place - but I think for the money you pay for it and the value you get it's really a bargain.

The devs have made a decent game and put some effort into creating tracks from satellite / aerial imagery - like having to drive under tunnels, bridges, trees.

And most importantly for me: relatively short loading times (making it easy to race a track or two in Arcade mode), cars that really feel differently depending on their stats but not too much realism (less frustration when you hit the sides), and after a few races one even get used to the turn-warnings.

All in all: I like it.

I've wanted to try this game for some time, as the possibility of running on real streets using Google Maps is at least interesting.

The gameplay is very good, the best for racing games with superior vision. Worth risking the purchase because it is very cheap.

It has clear indications as are the curves, without disturbing the gameplay, which is essential in this type of game.

The downside is that there are not many players online is a game made for a very specific audience.

Eu já estava de olho neste game a algum tempo pois a possibilidade de rodar em ruas reais utilizando o Google Maps é no mínimo interessante.

A jogabilidade é muito boa, a melhor para jogos de corrida com visão superior. Vale a pena arriscar a compra pelo preço baixo.

Possui indicações claras de como serão as curvas.

O ponto negativo é que não existem muitos jogadores para online é um jogo feito para um público bem específico.

This game is great, I don't understand why people don't like it!

Sure the trailers are misleading, and the graphics arent great, but there is a description and screenshots that tell you its a top down game.
And with the graphics, well, they're right they're not amazing, but it doesnt really matter!

The only thing I am having trouble with it 'Power Drifting.' It usually just doesnt work.

It also doesnt need that great a computer and it doesnt lag at all!

I'll rate this game 8.5/10

Handling was ok but the brakes work completly strange - you can't use the enging brake (using a lower gear).
Played 12min and the game crashed 2 times during driving license tests. One Arcarde race did not crash.
