SummaryHardcore race gamers need not apply.
The GoodI find the idea of slowly building your own classic hot rod from scratch to be quite fun. There are lots of interesting cars to choose from, and the speed difference after buying a new car or dropping in a better part is noticeable and exciting for a while. The early '60s feel is also fun and different. The interface and lack of complexity are such that you don't need to know a lot about cars to understand the full extent of the game. The two race types aren't terribly difficult, but they provide adequate challenge at first. And let's face it - who wouldn't like to own a brand spanking new 1963 'Vette?
The BadThe game is far too short and easy. Once you've beaten it, there is no real reason to come back. There are far too few customization options, and the race types are quite easy after a few times going through them. It is possible to own the game's best car with all of the best parts after only a few races.
