"The racing itself is tight, fluid and adrenaline-filled. Drifting around curves, weaving through traffic and avoiding a crashed car in the middle of a roadway while fleeing from a police helicopter provides such a great rush. It's moments like these that make Rivals feel like such a great racing experience. Regardless of your past experience with racing games, the controls are fairly easy to pick up and play. The only real skill that may take some time to master is drifting around curves."
