I was very disappointed by this game, to be honest. I have it for the Xbox 360 and it just does not amaze me.
The steering is pretty terrible. Takes a full few seconds of jamming the stick to the left to get it to move left (the controller is fine and there is no delay, it just takes a long time to make a justifiable turn). Having to drift on just about every turn also makes me angry.
The cars were not great, though at least they didn't go TOO out-of-spec this time around. I think I was able to go around 15MPH faster than the rated top speed, compared to going 320MPH in other games
Overall, I don't believe this game was worth my money. Kind of wish I didn't buy it. It kept my attention for the brief amount of time it took to beat the game and some free roaming, but other than that, it was somewhat mediocre.
