Weapons: No, I believe that Racing and shooting do not mix well unless the driving element is very easy.
Obstacles: Totally tied in with the above point. The entire concept hinges on the idea that you are driving a vehicle that flies in Ground effect/ This means that unless it's falling, it flies at an altitude of a few metres.
The game is basically point to point (or checkpoint to checkpoint) racing. It's all about picking your own route and taking short-cuts but there is a risk of crashing when the craft bottoms out.
The crash visuals are pretty lame at the moment so they were edited out of the movie. There are many turns that have to be taken wide to avoid crashing on the steeper slope at the inside of the turn. There are places where the player can ignore the prescribed path and risk bottoming out swerving between small islands and cutting across sandbanks.
Crashes will feature in the next vid. As will AI oponents and a less stupid soundtrack...
