May I remind everyone that this is a rc (radio-controlled) car game, not a full sized car game. The controls in this game are exactly like a rc car (a forward and back joystick and a left and right joystick). I'm not a fan of the controls in this game but they weren't difficult to learn like some of you say. They even had an "alternative" control scheme to make it easier. Two good things so far about the game is that I earned a trophy and the game was free. The game seems slightly frustraing and repetitive although it's kinda fun in short bursts. Overall I'd rate it a 6/10 (I may be being a little generous). Now I'm debating wether this game is worth the space on my memory stick.
I'm surprised to see everyone complaining about controls. They seem pretty basic to me. Like the other guy said, it's just like a remote control car. That is what RC means, by the way.
My complaint is... that there is apparently zero multiplayer. Not that I can find anyway. Not even local adhoc. Especially when the store's description says "Take on your friends in four player split screen races." So if it's there, I can't find it.
All of that said, it's not a bad little game. Especially for those of us who are getting it for free for this limited time.
P.S. I don't know if you guys noticed, but this game has a platinum trophy.
you unlock cars as you get first place medals, there are some cars that are DLC only as far as i can tell but the majority of them unlock as you progress.
as for my opinion. i think its a fun little game that could benefit majorly from the inclusion of true online multiplayer
