Great graphics and good online/local multiplayer. The 'shifting' mechanic is very unique, and the map is very large with lots to do and find. I also love how the story is written like a TV series. The story mode is unfortunately a bit short for my taste, and as an arcade racer, most cars drive very similar to one another. Car selection could also be a bit better; this game heavily favors American-made cars and features fewer cars from other countries. There's also little-to-no car customization. Overall I'd say it's a great open-world racing game and a blast to play, though it was outdone by later titles of the same genre.
