Overall: Overall this is an interesting racing game. The story isn't amazing, but its much better then no story at all. You play as Rena a (hot) female rookie racer. After each chapter of the game there are some short cut scene which are nice. Unfortunately the gameplay isn't as good as some other racing games. The game has a interesting mix of cars from rally to drag cars. (New and Old) The game retails for $29.99 and I can see why because it is very short. The racing life(story) mode is atleast because I already beat it. Its only 14 chapters. (1-3 races in a chapter)
Gameplay: The game play is okay. This game has some innovative features. You can pressure other drivers by drafting them and it makes it much easier to pass them. The game also has your pit crew and other drivers giving up short messages during the race which actually keeps you into the action race. Unfortunately the racing physics in this game isn't the best. The cars feel like they don't have any suspension and the engine sounds aren't very good.
Graphics: The graphics are good and the game supports 480p and widescreen. The graphics aren't on the same level as some other racing games like Project Gotham Racing 2 however, but they are still pretty good.
Sound: Engine sounds in this game are bad. Most cars sound the same and you don't really hear any exhaust note, just the rpm of the engine. The engines don't sound like you think they would. The sound track to the game is pretty good though and the voice of the characters are pretty well done, but they missed the most important part which are the car sounds.
Suggestions: Improve racing physics.
Improve engine sounds.
Add count down to start of all races.
More camera angles during driving.
More Camera angles for replay.
More modes or longer Racing Life mode.

Overall: 70 %
Gameplay: 60 %
Graphics: 80 %
Sound: 60 %
