Budget, novelty racer is about worth the 10 bucks you pay. Nothing more.

Playing as the avatar from your Xbox profile makes this more of a novelty game than a good fix for gamers looking for a great racing title. You traverse various outdoor tracks and trade airborn tricks for speed boost like many titles do. Much like a similar game Joy Ride, you can take a break from the racing to go to a 'sandbox' area to collect loot, but nothing here is as well thought out or executed as Joy Ride is a much smoother, more polished and well rounded game in every way. This game does not have any weapons involved or battle racing so it is a more straightforward, strictly racing game than most cart racer style titles. Although this is perceived as a more kid friendly delivery, cheap deaths, grainy graphics and generic features will most likely cause boredom or frustration before getting too far in to it's forgettable, surface novelties.
