Apparently this game sucks

according to this review - first one I have seen.

In Short: Not only the worst PlayStation Move game but probably the worst motion-controlled title ever. Riding through traffic on a real chair would be more entertaining.

Pros: The idea sounds like it would be quite fun if it were an ultra cheap download or a mini-game in some other title. (And it had a completely different control system.)

Cons: Comically awful control system that combines the very worst of motion controls with a horrendously overcomplicated set of inputs. Everything else.

Score: 1/10

I played a preview build of it a few months back. 
 
It's not that bad, but after I played it once, I never felt the urge to ever play it again. It would be nice if it was a tie in demo. As a full game, it is not only a failure, but a flopped proof of concept

there have been a few less than positive twitter comments about the game as well...

Hmm, it looks pretty fun from what I've seen of it. Don't see why anyone would choose to play as the dude though, given the female character's assets.

It looks like a "hey I threw this together in 5 minutes to test out the move controller" kinda game but I have yet to play it and probably never will.

It certainly looks it. If it was a downloadable game making such a game would be understandable but making it a disk game is absurd.

I saw the video here on GB.
It's in the line of Wiisports and more of that simple but fun for a party genre.

As a $5 DLC game, it would have been fine but for what it is, it's a waste of money.

I just got the game recently for about $3 and at that price it is definitely a good bit of fun. It really, really, really should've been a downloadable from the start. It would've helped the load times and the just-one-quick-run approachability. The controls are screwy and maybe not so natural but once you do get hold of things it can be pretty technical and rewarding to pull off a flawless run. Just throwing in my thoughts since I finally got around to finishing the game.
