Summary: The graphics and the music are excellent. The courses are demanding, I can't even qualify, lol. Once I play more I will get good enough to move on, but just messing around with the different vehices is fun.
Summary: While there are some thematic elements in this game that some parents may not want for younger kids (mostly violent crashes), the game interface is simple, allowing even non-hardcore race gamers to enjoy playing it. There is no more online racing, as the game is from 2007, but still a lot of fun. Lots of vehicles, lots of different paint jobs.
Summary: The ONLY complaint I have is the horrible wait times when picking vehicles because it has to load the 3d image of the vehicle. They fixed that in Pacific Rift. Otherwise, this games is awesome. In my opinion this is one of the best race games out there. I'm not a fan of very realistic simulations, but I don't care for races where the cars on on rails either. This is a nice balance of arcade fun with just enough realism and grit to make it extremely playable for hours.
Incredible graphics, great concept, but this game gets hard real fast.

Summary: THE GOOD: - Great graphics: the trucks look amazing, with reflective paint and detailed components. The courses also look great, with detailed textures and good lighting effects. The video cut scenes are incredible in HD. - Vehicle choice: From motorcycles to monster trucks to rally cars, this game pretty much covers every off road vehicle out there. - Vehicle damage: Vehicles crash in an explosion of parts. Very detailed damage after impact.
Summary: This game is a fun racing game, graphics are stunning, and it even has online play so that you can test your skills against others around the world. Only downfall is that you have a limited number of vehicles to choose from in each race and it doesn't have just a freestyle track where you can practice race, and you kind of go off instinct on what terrain each vehicle you have best suits it.
Summary: Back before I had a PS3 this was my favorite PS3 game. I demoed it at Walmart on release day and was blown away by the intense graphics. Forward to just recently when I got a Ps3, I still love this game. The game play is tuned to almost perfection and the idea of multi-levels is great. The only thing keeping this from getting 5 stars is that the number of levels is relatively small and sometimes you will launch off a ramp, only to run straight into a rock.
