I liked the background artwork which added to the atmosphere, and I love games with upgrades so good on you for including them here, but the positives kind of dry up for me here. It left a lot to be desired.
I found this game to be very bland. You never got a real feeling of being "on track", the steering just felt like I was turning the wheel left and right and I'd just slide round the course, whereas I should have been able to feel the corner and had a sense I was actually turning the vehicle.
I didn't see the point of the freestyle button, but I may have lost patience before the true value of it became apparent.
Overall a pretty poor and dated driving game compared to some of the much higher quality games out there.
Sorry, but that's how I feel.
