This game is more complicated than just choosing a car and playing through the courses. You can select what color your car is, change the engine, change tires, change the gearbox and more. Customizations to your car costs money which you can earn by getting a good enough rank during a race. You can also grab money that is on the road for an extra $100. There are many courses and things are quite hard at the beginning of the game, but once you get a better engine you should have no problem at all. Top Gear II is a great racing game that I recommend.
