>> I wouldn't say it is a "horrible" idea but I do agree it is a bit confusing and maybe they can try to find a better way to implement it.
Okay, maybe that was too harsh, but it was executed poorly. Having to navigate corners while not beeing able to see the road, plus the mirrored steering on top is a bit too much. An automated runaway sequence, like in the Crash Bandicoot Games where you only have to steer from left to right - without beeing able to crash into the wall/sides - thats would have been more fitting. Maybe just blocking Hammonds way with your car instead of getting far away, just to annoy him, that would have been perfect!
It would be great to have an option included, where you can enable and disable some of the gadgets found in the balloons during a multiplayer race. A friend of mine gets a bit sick when the AI and me keeps firing the "musical idiots" gadget all the time, probably has something to do with the immens screen shaking. Also it would be nice to see whos the best and fastest driver, only enabling "more horsepower" for an absolute speedrush!
