BOTTOM LINE Gorgeous

Most events are point-to-point races or multiple-lap races on closed circuits, but there are also unsanctioned street races and "showcase" events against airplanes or balloons. Online, you have plenty of straightforward eight-driver events as well as wackier games like "Infected," where you're trying to pass a "virus" from car to car. In between races, you score points with dangerous driving, such as drifting, zipping past speed cameras or passing other cars a little too closely.
