Tried this on the heels of the LilRacerz euphoria.

It's garbage. Stay well away.

Thanks for the heads up. I was tempted, but I much prefer racing over time trials and drifting.

"Garbage"?

Wow... that's pretty harsh.

Care to explain? I've seen some of my favorite games referred to in a similar fashion.

Looks like Black Mamba Racer.

One of the first games I ever got, and loved it

Well, it's a game about drifting and the drifting is all wrong. Imagine a car that's roughly 1/4 of its normal weight being driven on sheer ice and you'll be close to the feel of driving in this game. Drifting is fun when you are able to instigate it and then control it. In this game it simply happens of its own accord a second after accelerating and then you're charged with the task of steering a greasy sausage around a well oiled frying pan filled with obstacles. Actually that isn't entirely fair. The sausage would at least convey some sense of weight.

I agree "garbage" is a strong word and try to use it sparingly. I reserve it mostly for games I delete after less than 10 minutes after downloading in complete disgust.

I may disagree with Gabrien often enough, and he can be harsher than I care to be, but I've always found that he gives games a fair shot and his opinion is always well grounded. If he calls something garbage, I'm sure that he's not being flippant.

Oh, don't get me wrong, fellas; I read Gabrien's statement and immediately thought, "Uh-oh! This doesn't sound promising." Having said that, I thought the game looked really nice in the video, so I just needed some clarification of what specifically Gabrien found so frustrating about the game -- and now I know, so thanky kindly, G-Man! Still in all, we'd best tread lightly...

Some people *like* greasy sausage.
