The nice part about this game is that it's just fun, despite its flaws. Sure, there's horrendous pop-up. Sure, it's not terribly realistic. For example, in Australia, you can hear the kangaroos making a "boing" sound whenever they jump. I was quite sure they didn't do this, but I had to find out for myself. Fortunately they have kangaroos at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. I watched them for over an hour and I did not hear one single "boing". You should have seen the looks I was getting from people.
I do like how you can drift, which I don't recall being able to do in "Cruis'n USA", and you can even pull off some nifty trick moves. You don't lose any speed when you drift around turns, which I suppose was intentional. How realistic the drifting is I don't know, I wasn't about to put that to the test in my Audi. The zoo thing was much easier.
So there you have it, a nice racing game that is quite welcome, since I can only play so much Mariokart.
