as far as the 3 main modes go,
the main mode has some really bizarre (and not in a good way) handling that takes a bit of time to get used to. it's definitely an alright racer once you get it down but it just doesn't feel all that notable to me besides its weird control scheme. it's perfectly serviceable, not much else
top ride is cool but it's a really small idea, wish they did more with it
and city trial mode felt too long and aimless when i played it imo, but im definitely in the minority when it comes to that one. maybe it's because i played smash run first
overall it's an alright package, probably better if you're a completionist or have friends to play with lol. could def see a younger me playing the shit out of this but idk how much id revisit it nowadays
