Summary

A game that has such a strong pleasing graphical style, The game scratches an itch of old-school driving games. I got strong Micro Machine feels, I am surprised at how approachable the game is but for all this happiness and smiles, If you plan on playing this solo offline then you will not get as much bang for your buck, Racing is very basic. The game shines online but even more so with local play. The game modes are so much fun especially the football. In short, it has many cool tricks but its not a game for solo offline and instead is a must own party game.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
