Where do I start…

This game had so much potential it’s insane. What they gave was a beautiful looking racing games with cars that can barely even drive straight. The weather is absurd, raining every 10 minutes making it impossible to see or drive with any control. Sharp turns are practically impossible to make clean without skidding off the road. The prices in credits for the cars needed to even come close to winning a street race is ridiculous. Once you get off road you might as well forget about having any control over your car. It reacts like your driving on a damn ice rink. The amount of trees that you can crash into head on is not even realistic. They literally put 10,000 trees in the fucking outback just so you could have something to smash directly into. The pedestrian drivers on the roads are a nightmare. It’s like they’re all elderly people with blind folds on, driving aimlessly making it impossible to not rear end them. I could go on all day, but other than that it’s a cool game.
