You always have to be online to play this game, and it's full of IAP (+ wait timers), no thanks. Just tried it to see some in-game graphics (quite ok).

... and deleted (don't need this whole freemium crap)

Plus out of all the screenshots only one 'seems' to be the actual game itself (even then it doesnt look real).

Just want to see the gameplay not lots of glossy graphics. Shame but like you say, large file size/free - can only mean tons of IAP's

Tried it and meh , same tired freemium crap . Everything was ok until the 4th opponent then it was either grind forever or open the purse strings . I don't mind grinding a bit in an RPG , but a so so arcade racing game ... Um no .

Too many 'better' games to spend time with . I want that Indiana jones type boulder game !

Oh and instead of a difficulty setting - you can pay game money to 'sabotage' the rival driver and make him easier to beat , making sure you go through funds ASAP . Rolls eyes

Going to pass on this completely. I don't really want to support stuff like this anymore by even downloading it and helping them by bumping it in the charts.

I was so instantly turned off by the sheer number of confusing menus that I deleted it within 60 seconds.

Ok, an enjoyable game BUT ..... you can race 6 races before waiting 2 hours for fuel refill (1 fuel point every 10 minutes, you need 2 per race). Of course you can pay real $ to fill up!
The further through you get, the longer the wait times to upgrade. Of course you can pay real $ to get a second mechanic or speed up the upgrade!
Everything has a real $ option, whilst I'm not totally against the freemium model, pure greed rankles.
Will play without opening the wallet as I know this game will get too repetitive very quickly
