Setting up my Wingman Rumblepad to play this was far too much of a chore. Getting into the game: Push left on analogue stick, go left. Push right on analogue stick, does nothing. Many other things did not work.

Who in the last few years decided we need a menu style change? The type where you have to use multiple sources of input just to navigate menus? Joysick up and down...yup. Select...requires keyboard 'enter' key to be pressed and other ****.What a ****load of ****.

Yep, menu system sucks like that. I couldn't actually find the "Quit" game option quickly because the morons require you to scroll the menu.

Besides the above average graphics I found nothing much entertaining in this one. It's a ditto of Grid. This game begs for some sort of story, scenic destination racing, cops, barrels, monkeys, anything to spice up the dull been there done that circuit racer that this is.
