I played for a while last night. Had no problem with the controls really. The difficulty is strange. I did the same grand prix on both easy and medium. Easy provided little challenge, as I came in first on every race, but medium was pretty challenging. I came in 4th in the final standings. I consider myself to be pretty good at kart racers.

Got this for the PS4 and enjoyed it. I'll agree that the adventure mode is weirdly difficult, but I never liked it in the original CTR for the PS1, either. This is a great one to play against my wife (we had a blast playing CTR into the wee hours of the morning after we were first married) and this version replicates the original pretty well. The online races are fun, too.

And, yes, microtransactions suck. If I wanted to fool with those, I'd play a free game on my blasted phone. Don't come looking for money in a game I've already bought, you rascals!

I like the fact that in this game, you can earn stuff after every race. Most of the time these are coins, sometimes skins. There are also challenges, which count towards your progress bar.

This may seem like common knowledge, but you have to be connected to a network to earn these, I'm pretty sure. I played this game on a long car ride, and after a couple races, I noticed I wasn't earning anything.

Too bad that not the case anymore as they added Microtransactions in game (yuck!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSv0pEraKw0 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LeZ89_u2Gc and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qollvzS6_8
