However it is still in the shadow of PGR2 IMO. Theres a lack of challenges & content compared to this high point of the series. Also the season mode isnt great & I much prefer the structure of PGR2. But these are small problems.
What stops it getting a 9/10 is the bikes. Which are terrible & a pointless addition. If you never had to use them, then I wouldnt have really been bothered. Unfortunately the game forces you to use them to get all medals in Arcade mode. They are just not fun to use at all & bring the whole package down. Regardless of this though I still highly recommend it to any racing fan. Brilliant game!
