My Thoughts:
I was surprised how much I actually like the game. I only picked it up because I wanted to try out a game the supports the new Google Play Game Service and I found a game that is actually good on the first attempt.  I’m not really a fan of the driving physics of the game (more of a racing simulator fan) but I guess that is why the game is so addicting. The game challenges you to drive better each time (no matter how much the driving physics make you feel like you have no axles connected to you wheels, and how much you wheels feel like they are a sphere) to try to get a higher score. I also like that the game doesn't have an extremely large file size like other games that are similar, plus it free!!!
