Store this in the "who cares? file": Project Gotham Racing is the very first game I bought with my Xbox way back when. Anyways, I like it, but think it is slightly over-hyped. Sure it looks pretty, and has lots of cars, but I found it to be flawed in a few areas. It needs a greater sense of speed, and I'm still not sold on the whole "Kudos" system. I so wanted to take the cars out on a country road (like Need for Speed) and just drive a straight road.
I found the courses to be too confined and PGR is more about the ability to take corners than it is about blazing through a straight section of road. On the plus side, there are a LOT of gameplay options and no shortage of unlockables. There is a punishing degree of difficulty as the game progresses.
It is a pretty racer. Great looking cars and scenery. Just lacked a sense of speed for me. And, I don't think it looks as good as RalliSport in comparison.
Custom soundtracks always rock, because it's music I picked. The cars sound great. I love the opening theme (Galaxy Bounce) Everything is perfect here!
For a $5 monthly fee or $30 annual fee, EA plans to provide Xbox One owners with free access to games in their catalogue, significant discounts and early access to future games among other benefits. This could be a game changer for Xbox One.
