Rivals like Burnout leave this in the dust!

The graphics are the only high points of this game. Back then, it was the creme of the crop. The cars were well-rendered and looked exactly like their real-life counterparts. And if you aren't in for eye candy of cars (like me), might as well plop a different game into the disc tray.
The sound is nothing to hoot about. It didn't get my game mood to heighten. The only thing worth complimenting here is the ability to change the background music in the game.
Now we get down to gameplay. This is the bottom of the barrel. There are buttons that to this day we don't know what they are used for. The manual shedded little light on that dilemma. The steering is clunky with the greatest cars. It'd be easier to drive in real life. The acceleration is non-existent as you can't tell visually if you're speeding up. Computers manage to pass you even when you've reached your peak.
The main mode is impossible to play because you can almost never win. The driving test leaves you little instructions on what to do and this test is neccessary to unlock some of the tracks. The tracks themselves are boring and unsightly with many turns that, as stated in gameplay, hard to steer. It feels like I paid 200 dollars for this game but thankfully, I made my money's worth with other great games.
