Summary: This is my 8 year old son's favorite game. We enjoy racing against each other. Good variation in tracks and courses to play on. The soundtrack isn't bad. However, the graphics are very poor, especially considering this is on a PlayStation 3. The bystanders and background enviroments are extremely grainy and pixelated. Being a new game on the PS3, I had much higher expectations.
Conclusion: I have only played the demo and so cannot give a completely fair review, however from what i have played, i found it simply boring. The sounds are terrible, they are bad to the point where its the exact same sound for a whole race making it extremely boring! The actual gameplay is better than the audio but thats still not saying much. All of the vehicles are bouncy and handle unrealistically.
Conclusion: I like the gameplay and i think the graphics are good BUT i brought a copy last year (01-03-08) and i had to send it back because it kept freezing. Then i brought another copy and im just about to send it back because its freezing aswell. Also my friend has an x-box 360 and he had the same problems with the game so my advice is dont waste your money buying a game that youll just have to send back!!!
