Project Gotham Racing 4 gives you the opportunity to screech around the streets of world famous cities, some of which have been included in previous instalments of the series such as London, others are brand new to the series like St. Petersburg and Shanghai.
ShopTo are parting with copies of the game for £4.85, which is just over £2 cheaper than the next best price of £6.98 coming in from Gameplay and Gamestation.
When you consider the fact that most of the recent racing games have a list of playable cars that all seem to go on and on, it's a little bit disappointing that this game only contains 130 vehicles. Luckily though, the chance to get behind two wheels instead of four adds a bit of variety to the experience, and in some cases building up speed on the motorbikes is far more exciting.
As you work your way through the different tracks you really notice the difference between them and they've been designed to provide you with a bit of variety whilst you're racing, so you won't get bored and feel like your playing through the same section of track that's connected up by a few bends that crop up every now and then.
It pays off to learn the lay of the land and the controls on your dashboard so you can glide into first place, as there are a number of unloackables including customisable clothing, more vehicles, and extra tracks.
The new weather system is incredibly unpredictable, at one moment bright sunshine might well be reflected off your bonnet, then it'll start pouring with rain at which point you'll have to approach bends with a bit more caution, and finally it could start snowing and the grip your vehicle previously had on the track'll go out of the window.
Whilst thrashing the AI in single player is good fun, multiplayer offers you a greater challenge and it's far more rewarding to know that you've beaten a real person. There are a range of modes including 'Bulldog', during which one player will have to tear around the track tagging everyone else.
Even if you're not the biggest car enthusiast in the world, you should definitely give Project Gotham Racing 4 a go now the price tag's under £5.
