I played this game and reviewed it for Hardcore Gamer Magazine. Your thoughts and score pretty much mirror my own, except I think I might have hated the controls even more than you did. Too floaty, and the courses that you make sound so awful really are that awful. This was a great review that does the game's horrific side proper justice. To anyone who reads this and thinks "Wow, it can't really be that bad," let me assure you... it's really that bad. I think Zig still secretly hates me for having him review this and that's why he passed the love (*snerk*) onto you. Pocket Racers sullies the life of all who it touches.

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Thanks for the feedback, Jason. I appreciate it. I, too, thought that it "wasn't that bad" and when I made that challenge and allowed Zig to choose the game and he said Pocket Racers, then he immediately starting apologizing, I thought he was just joking around.

Five minutes into the game I realized why, hence the "I hate you" line. I will, no doubt, pass this on to another. It could be a fun little game we have here.

Honestly, it would probably be rather fun to see that happen. There would be some bravery required on the part of people who got involved, and I imagine that it would be increasingly difficult to round up a new victim with each review posted, but I'd still be interested in seeing if the idea could go anywhere... and if maybe it would be worth doing for other titles (not all of them bad ones), as well.

It really would be, kind of like Infection for the PSP. Only I wouldn't know how to begin such a thing, aside from making the request to the person, but they may want some sort of incentive.
