I think that all children have the right to play games in their free time, of course not neglecting schools ..I agree that we should err games in wich has violence, pornography, gambling and you need to choose more social games.

This racing title is fun and easy to get into, but its simple presentation keeps it from fully taking the checkered flag. With floating ships, as well as tracks that are closer to roller coasters than anything you'd see at a real speedway, this puts a fun and futuristic spin on your typical arcade-style racing game. In the tradition of F-Zero and the Wipeout series -- and, in some respects, such musical games as Rock Band -- Fast RMX is an engaging arcade racing game but with a color-coded twist. As you drive, you'll see sections of the track that are highlighted in blue or yellow. Hitting a button, you have to switch the glow of your vehicle between blue and yellow to match the track. If you do, you'll get a serious burst of speed; fail, and your car will slow to a crawl.

Aside from this color twist, the game has many of the things we require from every racing game. Along with a good variety of fast cars, this has twisty tracks peppered with pitfalls and hazardous jumps. It also boasts both a single-player Championship mode as well as multiplayer modes for both your online pals and those sitting next to you on the couch. It even adds options that were absent in its predecessor, FAST Racing Neo, including the ability to customize the controls, turn the terrible music down or off, or play from multiple viewpoints. Unfortunately, it still comes up a bit short. Multiplayer is restricted to one-off races, while those "multiple viewpoints" don't include one that puts you in the driver's seat. Still, if you'd like to drive fast in the future, this should satisfy your speed fix.
