Advantages: Really really fun and addictive
Disadvantages: Can be very similar each race if always playing alone
This game is a must play, unbelievable how fun it turns out to be when you are playing alone in the campaign mode, co op mode or even in multiplayer. I first came about this game when i went to my mates house and he introduced it to me.
There is added download content which you can get, this makes the game alot better and unlocks more ships and other such items. There are many different styles of races that you can do and all of these come on a range of different tracks so this keeps the game fresh and interesting
Graphics and Game play
There are twelve different teams and each of them have there own versions of the cars all with different perks and down sides ranging from Toughness to speed to acceleration. This keeps the game fresher as once you have completed the game with one car there are plenty more options which you can do on it. Meaning for the cheap price you will pay for tyhis game there are always more and more that you can do
The more races you win and the further you can get in the career mode the more you unlock and then you get into the super cars, these are what make the game really fun! There are 8 tracks to start with but you can also play these in reverse. this then doubles what you can do and even if you think you know that track perfectly .. play it in reverse and i can guarantee you will not know them all straight away and you will CRASH.
The game's graphics look awesome! they run at 60 frames per second which leaves you with a perfectly smooth experience which is perfect for this fast paced racing game, it makes it feel so much more alive and realistic, especially when played in 1080p on a HD television. This game can then be taken to the next level as if you play this with a good sound system or even better surround sound. the game throws out some strong techno like tunes which really get you in the mood for racing.
There is a setting where you can play your own soundtracks in the background so if you think you can race better to bon iver or slipknot these options are available making the game more diverse and ranging out to alot more people.
There are also some fun settings in the game aswell, there is a section called Zone mode. this is my most favorite section as you start of by driving round the track at normal speed. you then get faster and faster as you go around when your score slowly increasing. the fast you get the higher your score. the object of this is to see how far you can get before you explode and die essentially. This is really challenging and makes you want to try beat it time after time. this also comes up well at parties as you can feel the big man when you have the top score and they physically cant beat you as you have (secretly) put hours and hours into this game because of its addictiveness.
The only down side to this game is you will find yourself sitting there for hours on end playing this game as time just flys by and you will not stand a chance at getting out and getting some real sunlight as the virtual lighting effects on the game feel real enough for you mentally! Enjoy!
brilliant game. well worth a purchase and play!
Summary: Wroth a purchase as its only cheap.
