There are all sorts of fun things you can do while racing including drafting, boosting, and drifting. As you play, you can make rivals for big points by slamming into your opponents. If your car is damaged, you can head into pit lane to repair your car and get an extra boost. There are some challenges in pit lane as well so watch out. The better you drive, the more boost you earn. With each event that you win, you can earn upgrades to customize your car and make it look more unique.
My son had a great time playing this game. He loved crashing the cars and going off road with them as well. The special effects were pretty good with cars flipping over and clouds of smoke billowing up in wrecks. He has spent tons of time playing this game and doesn't seem to be bored with it yet. This is definitely a fun, family racing game.
