Summary: Whoever reads this review DO NOT buy this game. Pros-Cool cars and the ability to buy property and upgrade interiors. Cons-Set button configuration;I always try to set my button config. the same way but on here you cant even change it from automatic to standard and the way they made it really really sucks.
Excerpt: Unfortunately, this was oneof those games that should not have been simplified for PS2. It missing such essential parts of the game, that its depressing, The games essentially is based on an hawaiian island and, apparantly the roads are layed out to scale. You compete in races, both on and offline to collect cars, earn money and rank 1st worldwide if your good enough. Without the extras,on 360 and PS3, this game becomes mundane and suicidally boring.
Pros: A real time interactive mass played driving game, thats good fun .
Cons: Can be a serious driving game, if played on newer console .
Test Drive - Amazingly Limited Compared To X360 / PC

Summary: This game really was designed with the next gen console / PC in mind, and really shows the PS2 to be a dead dog. The priorities of some of the features are totally backwards. Take for example the absolute requirement to control the windows. Or a traction control system that has three settings, when in fact it's permanently off.
