Summary: this game has so much going for it. first off, the graphics are beautiful, the damage effects are fantastic and the amount of destructible content in the levels is insane. the racing is fast and exciting and the crashes are detailed and fun to watch. so that's what makes it such a shame that the cars are impossible to steer.
Summary: I've been playing racing games since Apogee's Death Rally, and that game, which came out in the early 90s, is more fun than this one! After you get past level one on the career area, the players get pathetically and unrealistically hard, to the point where the game isn't fun anymore. The racing courses are horribly designed. It's set so that if you don't follow the EXACT course they want you to, you will lose.
