Just a couple of things I thought I'd point out. Critic, in your review you say you don't like the camera angle; if you press down on the d-pad twice it will give you a view of a lot more of the track. Also, press L and R at the same time to do a slide when you go into a sharp turn, then press just the trigger for the direction you're turning. Say you're going right: hit right on the joystick and L and R, then let go of L when you're turned lined up so you go in sharp. There are lots of advanced methods of turning, but that is the easiest to master.
Let me know what you think about my reviews.
