Poor controls, unless you use a game-pad with your PC

John D. Hillmer, Amazon
12 December 2011
  • Summary: Very dis-appointed. The option to configure a USB joystick is clumsy. At first I didn't think it was possible, but with some work, I got it to connect to my Microsoft Force-feedback 2 joystick. People report being able to use a wired xbox game pad controller - that's probably best. There is no way I'm going to steer with the keyboard. The game is not a high end simulator, but more of an arcade style game.

Fun concept, bad game

J. Morales, Amazon

  • Summary: A recently planned sequel to this game was cancelled and I totally understand why. This game is way too hard, and I say this as somebody who has played and beat Halo on Legend difficulty level. No matter what you do, you will never get more than a few seconds ahead of your opponents, though they can easily be 30+ seconds ahead of you. All the cars drive like they are on ice.

Great game, HORRIBLE port!

Sparkle Cleaning "Isaiah", Amazon
10 January 2011
  • Summary: Ok, let me say that everything they say good about this game is completely true! The graphics, the fast paced fun, the completely amazing game, all true! The problem? Literally, the worst PC port I have ever seen. (For those who aren't avid gamers, this means that it wasn't designed to go on PC, and thus runs poorly) First off, a controller hook up only runs the gameplay. Doesn't control the windows, or menus, or anything. It is also kinda jumpy.

Not the best racing game

AllergicToYourFace, Amazon
9 September 2010
  • Summary: This game needs more instruction and is not for the light user. I pick up games rather easy and this game is not user friendly! I find that even practicing the controls are not convienent and people become frustrated playing, plus setting up is not a walk in the park either. I think I am going to trade this in and keep playing my other racing games.

NOT a PC game!

A. E. Smith "Fatal Ace", Amazon
14 June 2010
  • Summary: Do not bother buying this game if you intend to play it on a PC. You will get what is obviously, a console only game, with only the most basic support for a PC. There is NO support for a racing wheel/pedal combination (which the game identifies as a "joypad"), no ability to significantly re-assign buttons or keys for racing and you will end up either having to play from the keyboard, or reaching back and forth between wheel and keyboard to access functions.

Fun game, but PC version has lots of issues

James Redel, Amazon
7 June 2010
  • Summary: I played the demo and heard good word of mouth, so I bought it. The game is as fun, if not even more fun than the demo, however it feels like they really phoned in the PC version as it practically screams a hasty port. The game identifies my racing wheel as a 'Joypad' and when playing it without any workarounds, it makes it so turning the wheel 45 degrees barely turns the car enough for a lane change, let alone hard corners.

indigne de porté le nom disney

H. cedric "blue_dwarf", Amazon

  • Summary: alors le coté "spectaculaire hollywwod" est là sauf qu il est général bien éloigné si bien qu on voit pas souvent grand chose. mais le plus gros problème c'est le framerate ... tout simplement honteux sur une machine de guerre des plus puissante et récente le jeu saccade on crois réverver surtout qu'il est en bête directx9 (bref pas non plus de quoi se décrocher la machoire niveau prouesse visuelle) le nombres de circuits est plutot ridicule qui plus est les fan de multi...
