"It's a good game, but there's not a lot to it. You can play through the normal championship in twenty minutes. The guy's running commentary was probably pretty impressive back in the day, but annoying now."

"It's fun and quick and can be learned in a few minutes. It's also cheap. We just bought a nice-looking set for $6. Not the deepest or most engaging game, but a nice way to pass a bit of time while talking."

"Very fun for the first few hours. But they keep resetting your progress (as a punishment for doing well) and making you win the same races again and again, but with more cars on the road. It gradually transitions from fun to extremely annoying. It could have been one of the great games of all times if it was more sensible with its goals. As it is, you either spend a billion hours getting 100%, or play till it's not fun anymore and leave with a bad taste in your mouth."

"The graphics were very good in 2004. I just pulled up a Youtube video and it is still pretty good looking. The gameplay was okay. Not particularly bad, but generally not that fun. This was the first time I started noticing that blockbuster games were getting too expensive to make for companies to worry that much about anything other than graphics."

"I'm glad I checked it out of the library first. I liked it but I didn't $80 like it."

"AC 2 was mainly made by French Canadians. After it was a hit, the company forcefully ejected the main game designer and announced the next game would be about the US War of Independence. I laughed for five minutes when I read that. After climbing around big cities in Renaissance Italy, did they really think it would be funner to jump around colonial villages?"
