I bought $100 in gold which gave me 21,000 Gold to restore the Corvette ZR1. After spending all of it restoring the car it was only 14% restored. Do a little math and that is over $500 of real money to restore a game car. Total money pit and waste of time. AVOID THIS GAME AT ALL COST, IT WILL COST YOU HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS TO PLAY...

Was good at first

It was really a fun game when I first got it, but after awhile, it started going downhill. It became just like many other pay to play games. Then the lag started getting bad on it. Kinda sucks when each event, you gotta buy the car needed or if your lucky you can win it. The only way to win the cup races is to buy a number of keys in a a certain order. Other than that, great graphics.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Thanks to overly simplistic, redundant gameplay, and other issues, this illegal street drag racing game is as much fun as getting a speeding ticket. In CSR Racing 2: Legends, you engage in a series of drag races against both computer-controlled opponents and other players. But unlike the real thing, drag racing in this game doesn't take much skill. You simply have to time it so you hit the gas when it's in the green to get a good start, and then again to shift up when you should. You can also hit the nitrous when you need a boost. But that's all there is to this, and once you get the timing down, it's not much of a challenge.

This is particularly true since winning races isn't as much about skill as it is about having a better car than your opponent, something you can easily do by playing a lot or, well, paying a lot. It also doesn't help that the game suffers from long load times and annoying, redundant music. All of which, if you'll forgive a pun as obvious as this game, is why CSR Racing 2: Legends is a real drag.
