Haven't played Lego yet (will pick up soon), but I loved Hot Wheels.

That's tough, but i'm gonna go with the Lego expansion as it gives you more ground to drive on and I liked the challenges more, the cars were better and the overall theme/presentation was much better with little Lego characters running around, houses and the world made out of Lego, the Hot Wheels one feels almost lifeless but it was still good.

You should definitely pick up Lego DLC! It's really awesome and the Lego cars are much better than Hot Wheels cars when it comes to handling.

Also I think most Lego toys are much funner than Hot Wheels IMO.

The Hot Wheels cars including Twin Mill feels undrivable due to heavy weight which causes it to under steer and it's steering angle is even more blunt than 1970 Dodge Charger (Fast & Furious 7).

Overall Lego cars perform much better than Hot Wheels.

Yeah they feel faster and i'm not a fan of hot rods which there is in the Hot Wheels DLC.

Only 2 of the 3 Lego cars handle well, but the third (F40) is twitchy even at low speed.

Tbh, I'm not enjoying the Lego DLC that much... not sure why yet.

I think I'm just a little bored of the more arcadey racers like Horizon. Need my fix of a proper racer like Motorsport/GRID/F1 instead I think.

Because you didn't really enjoy playing Lego sets during your childhood right?

Don't touch F1 2019 its fucking terrible, the career mode is interrupted with cutscenes you can't skip, and then there's the pointless interview after every race, I have stopped playing after 2 races, but will go back later. Someone needs to tell Codies that racing games are not movie games as no one plays a racing game to watch cutscenes.

Grid will be more arcade also. You might have to wait until next gen to play FM8.

@i_p_daily: That's a shame about F1... It's getting good reviews though :(

Yeah after every race your team mate argues with some muppet from another team about some shit that you can't skip. Its no wonder its getting good reviews as reviewers these days get a boner over cutscenes :(
