This game isn't as good as the first imo.
The game mode select screens aren't as obvious to navigate.
The "World Tour" is just a load of single tracks one after another (Grand Prix is fine for getting everything unlocked, the World Tour is just a glorified quick race section).
The statistics aren't as easy to understand with a glance, you now have to really look at it.
And most important; the crazyness and high speed of it seems to have slipped away. The game doesn't seem to like me drift ing on a straight to get a drift boost... this is a shame.
The powerups are not memorable; they're all fricking random as hell. Bees? I mean really?
Yeah, that's about it really.
