The first is that they add the same system as a first person shooter. If you take your car to the safety knalt or whatever, your screen will become blurred so that you will see less. Compare this with a FPS if you are injured, you have less visibility and everything blurred or discolored. There is also a level system, which you can see what driver you are. Are you an aggressive driver or do you it all clean? This can be deduced from your driving style and that of course gives you more options for you to develop as a topdriver."
