*Note: This review is based on my experience with the Xbox 360 version of the game. I felt I should put this in because I experienced a number of technical issues with the game and it is possible that the next-gen version isn’t as buggy.
I’m not a big fan of racing games. It is rather rare that I actually decide to play one, but on the occasions that I do I always go for arcade racers over simulation ones.
