everyone is complaining about the controls. i thought they were terrible too, but after about 10 minutes they feel pretty natural. i say just give it a few more tries. at least for me they feel great now. this game is pretty awesome, short races for times when you only have a couple of minutes to play. idk, just my opinion
You don't get it free on the PS3 as well. And yes it has cross game play.
Lots of peoples seem to find it slow going. Maybe I just love my internet enough to actually pay 5 bucks more for 7mbps extra. I got it in 15 mins. This game's controls were hard at first since I've been used to Wipeout but once I got it I was surprised at how easy it was to get into first and even flipping over constantly I could maintain it.
It was incredibly fun and I like the normal tracks cause it brought me back to the times I would do that for my old RC cars, I'd build a track and go to town, I'd have friends over with their's and we'd keep fighting over who really won... Even tho my RC car cheated... It was the Tyco RC Rebound. (see attached pic)
So this game reminds me of those times and those times were good..
