Nice graphics, it's a good physics game without being a copy of all the bike games done before. I also like the fact that you can improve your car

I don't know what that other guy is talking about. I beat the last boss on the first try, although just barely so it's not like it wasn't challenging. I had fully upgraded my car before I go there too. Anyway, great game, looks good, handles great, I just wish there were more levels and upgrade features.

Now it's my favorite game with trucks anf bigfoots?nice idea to that enemies are in teams....Very cool locations, i liked Arctica the most!!!!!I was shocked with such a amzing and easy to understand shop...It's the best shop i ever seen!!!!!Thanks!!!!

Great! It's so fun. so enjoy ))) I like this game so much. But, why only one car is available? I want more powerful cars! Music like a monsters theme) Perfecto

This game WAS going to get a five start score from me...it's simple to pick up, the courses are challenging but not overly so, the music fits right in with the theme of the game and of course you have the thrill of competition...though you can take out said competition with your rockets if you have them (which I heartily enjoy doing)

BUT...I had to dock 3 stars for one GLARING problem with this game...was it designed so that it's IMPOSSIBLE for the player to win the last race?!?

The reason why I ask this is that I have raced against the final boss, the "Dracula Truck" in level twenty over a dozen times now–I believe I am at fifteen or sixteen–and every single time I race one of two things happens: either Dracula takes off at supersonic speeds and does not slow down the entire race which could only mean that he has infinite NOS which could be something the developer gave the final boss to make a more challenging, or, through some miracle, I manage to catch up to him and as soon as I am about to take the lead my car explodes even if I have full health.

Now I am all for challenging games. I mean who wants to play a game whether it's action, adventure, survival, strategy, etc. that is so easy that you can basically play it with your eyes closed and easily win. However, what I do not like is a game that makes it impossible for you to beat the final boss and finish the game.

I played through the last nineteen levels and through careful upgrade selection was able to beat every level, including the boss races, in first place whether I out ran the other competitors and the boss or used my rockets to eliminate my competition and the boss…this is not so in the final level because of the aforementioned problems.

Now I understand that you want the final boss to be difficult, but it is remarkably unfair to the player if you make the final boss invincible and unbeatable. Now if I still had some upgrades to get then maybe I could see the final boss beating me but when I have everything maxed out–the engine, the armor and the NOS–and Drac either takes off like a rocket and continues that ridiculous speed throughout the race or I explode right after I take the lead even though I have full health and nothing, I repeat, NOTHING is around me, then that leads me to believe that there is some bullshit going on where the developer has made it so that the player can never win.

Also, it seems that the obstacles and the terrain itself pose no challenge at all to the final boss. Even though I have the best tires, the best shocks, and the best rockets–as I mentioned I am fully maxed out in all categories that relate to the race–whenever I hit an obstacle or uneven terrain I do bounce around a little bit but it seems as if the final boss can just glide over these with no loss in speed or any kind of loss in control; that again leads me to believe that the developer has purposely rigged the game so the final boss is, as I said, unbeatable

This game was one of the VERY select few that I give a five star score to; that is until I played the final level and realized that you can never win. If this was changed–to just a very difficult challenge, and not a royal screwing every time you race–then I would reconsider and give this game the rating it deserves. However, because of what I just mentioned, an excellent game has been demoted to just a "time waster" game.
