Under rating threshold (show) Really nice game, But, I do agree with the other comments: We need a Minimap - and the slow down issue - and the custom cars - But, I do have one complaint (not to sound all whiny or stuff) I want to be able to see where the other cars are. I hate that I'm useing the boosts recklessly because I don't know how close they are. This game would be amazing in my opinion if your fixed these.

Under rating threshold (show) The only cone for achievement #26 is on track 7 (Bahrain). With a maxed-out car, you reach it at about the 37-40 second mark. Happy hunting!

Under rating threshold (show) Agreed. Computer cars should not be able to gain speed AND keep perfect traction on the tight turns with the posts when I, with maxed traction, will wreck if I do the same. ALSO: WHY can computer cars not wreck when they hit the posts?

Under rating threshold (show) so i like how, even though i maxed out my handling, the CPU cars still out do me on corners, why is it im the only one that has to slow down? this is stupid

Under rating threshold (show) The turning makes this game terrible. Why the heck can you only turn 30 degrees?? The only place to lose this game is on the turns, and when you turn you have no choice but the either slow down or crash. Yet when you "slow down," you have to lose up to 50%-75% of your speed before you recover, which CPUs can easily catch up with you. Lose-lose situation at the only point of challenge gives this game a 3/5 at best, for me.

Under rating threshold (show) Very well done. The graphics are very detailed and the game-play is amazing. It feels smooth and under control. The ability to adjust the car setup is interesting. A mini-map would be a nice addition. Other than that, 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) It's the little things that count. 1. WTF is up with me having to slow down and they get to accelerate around curves? The last time I checked, cars don't go at constant speed all of the time. 2. The sound effects are so out of sync, it's almost like playing one of Brittney Speare's songs. 3. If you're going to make the scenery interact with the cars, at least do it accurately. Yeesh!

Under rating threshold (show) I am not a big fan of racing games but I liked this one. I liked how you could upgrade your engine and then set how much you wanted to go into each of your parts. which I always stayed a little more to the handling which helps a lot on the corners. for big corners try and have a boost ready to go right after so make up for the speed lost. And when going around them crank the wheel let off the gas then tap the gas when you pull away from the wall. One thing that bothered me was I was pretty sure the driving by the side stuff sound effect was the punch sound effect from anther game but I got use to it. Keep up the good work.

Under rating threshold (show) Steering is relative to the track, so you can let up on the arrows much sooner than you probably think, and sometimes negotiate a turn without using the arrows at all! Mastering the art of steering as little as possible, combined with timed boosts coming out of the turns, made the races much easier to play. Yes, you're the only car on the track confined to basic laws of physics, but you're the only one with a boost, too :D

Under rating threshold (show) OK if you don't get 1st place in every race try to get 2nd or 3rd in every race to unlock the special car. Trust me the levels you have trouble on you will in in your first try with the special car. freaking car goes like 3 times a fast as your normal one

Under rating threshold (show) hmm i love how holding down left or right makes you "drift" and yet it still doesn't turn...I love being thrown out of a turn randomly into a wall even when I press down to brake....theres no point to handling what so ever because you still have to slow down to retardedly slow speeds to not get thrown of by uber centrifugal force....fix your physics engine dude...cars don't drive this way

Under rating threshold (show) Really impressed with this game. The difficulty from start to finish was perfect in my opinion. I loved how you could change which attributes to focus on and the boost charge was pretty cool. Like Juancore said above, it could use a minimap, but it's not a game breaker; the track is really easy to follow. The achievements were so-so, some of them were fun, like 'Cone Finder' and 'Tarmac Lover', but most were pretty plain. When I tried the special car, I was thinking "You've got to be kidding me" when I saw it, but then I got the green light. Haha, I was blown away. Over all, it's a great game. Would love to see a multiplayer. 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) What annoys me is that whenever you touch another racer you slow down and they speed up, no matter which angle you touch from. It even happens if they hit you. It's like they're stealing your speed.

Under rating threshold (show) For the first four races put your car at max speed, then from five - eight when you have the fully upgraded car or there abouts put it on the out side of the triangle half way between speed and control, helps with cornering, use boost on straights or when coming out of corners, never going into them! Also, I had a good laugh when I saw that the supercar is a Mini LMAO

Under rating threshold (show) The physics is a bit wonky with boosts. I'm at low speed, pop boost to hit 190 speed, then boost wears off, DROPPING me to 170 speed, then I can accelerate as normal to my top speed of 200+ If I haven't hit my top speed, a boost wearing off should not drop my speed.
