Summary: Cute game. It's in the later levels that it gets good; when you actually unlock a decent set of special weapons. The controls get a bit stubborn at times, mostly because my antiquity of a CPU couldn't handle the graphics. Other than that it was a good weekends worth of fun.
Summary: control has significantly improved with the 9/9/2011 update. not nearly as much drifting as in the youtube videos from TotalBiscuit, but you are still able to pull off hairpin turns with ease.
Summary: Not sure why the game was rated so harshly. I enjoyed playing it. It took me a while to get good at controlling the car, but once I got that down the levels are pretty challenging. The game plays like a driving shooter. Graphics are nice so are the guns.
