    The author has the basics down, but he/she doesnt tell any history, and really doesnt tell a lot about the game besides graphics, controls and so on. He/she doesnt say what its like to expieriece going 200 mph and making a tight turn. There was also no numbers to rate the graphics.

    No arcade history, no in-depth look at the game, just a quick "this is what it's all about people!" 5/10

    That first sentence was awkward. "The gameplay appears to be complete" was another puzzler; I'm not really sure what that means. If you're going to do a graphics/sound/etc breakdown, I'd like to see each section longer than a couple sentences, otherwise just leave those judgments in the main body of the text, not set apart at the end.

    6/10.

    The only real part that saved the review was basic lineup that a reviewer needs.Controls,Graphics,Gameplay,FunFactor.

    You've got to offer more meat to a community who, most likely, have ALL played this game at some point in time.

    Tonight will be the last batch of "cuts".

    If your review isn't locked at midnight tonight, you're entitled to the Digital Press subscription, and your review will be moved onto the main contest site.

    Unfortunately, not every review will make it.

    This one is getting cut. Low review scores from our judges and forum. Sorry! Thanks for playing though... there are lots more contests coming up
