When you're ready to hit the pavement you’ll appreciate all the tweaks you made. The controls have a rather steep learning curve, and you definitely won’t be winning many CA Battles, races where your given points for your drifting ability, till you have the right combination of skill and tuning. During the day your matches will consist of CA battles, Time Attack Battles, and sponsorship races, but things really heat up at night. When the sun goes down, the rivals come out and you can challenge them to races including the First and Last Battles, a race where one racer starts ahead of the other and the objective is to maintain or overcome the distance between. For those of you looking to go head to head with a friend, you’ll split screen race in CA or TA battles or an SP Battle where your cars damage becomes a factor, and you’ll be able to load your own car from a memory card.
While the graphics are not as shiny and sleek as the cars are in real life, and there are no damage affects, this game is great for its price. You can’t find a better deal on a new game; 20 dollars for all these options and challenges should be considered grand theft video game.
