SummaryLots of fun on the crazy tracks where timing is everything
The GoodThe tracks all have interesting designs, some with moving ramps, some with twists, 360 loops, split loops, etc. etc. etc. The different companies have cars that perform somewhat differently (different in top speed, acceleration, handling, braking, toughness, etc.) so choosing the car will lead to somewhat different strategies. There's a pit area for repairs so pitting strategy is important too.
The BadSome of the stunts are just too hard (esp. the corkscrew jump), the AI that doesn't care if you're in the way (imagine being pushed off the corkscrew jump ramp!), typical euro design of locking out advanced levels until you complete the initial level of difficulty, the cars aren't THAT different. The damage model is just a bit TOO relaxed.
