Summary

Skill building and fun!

The Good

The controls for the game are much simpler than most other racing games. The fact that you have a meter that is in danger of running out gives more of a challenge for gamers and keeps their interest longer. Gameplay just gets better as you go, The stages get more challenging and the graphics for the tracks are amazing. It feels as if you are right there despite the third-person view.

The Bad

All tracks have very sharp turns, and some tracks have drop-offs that can really kill your fun and test your patience. You have to be very persistent to beat the levels in story mode, and I have to admit that the tricks become a little boring if you repeat them out of habit.

The Bottom Line

This game is fun, but it can be challenging, So I would recommend it for older players. It can be quite tough for young players to pass the game without a little help, and the tutorial being in another section than the gameplay is a little bit inconvenient. Overall, this is a great game to buy, and it's rather addictive, too!
