There are six cars to choose from:
- Bulldog (unlocked from creating an online account)
- Crab (unlocked from creating an online account)
All of these cars/PODs have slightly different handling/statistical differences, but they do not pose much of a difference in racing feel while playing the game. Although this is not meant to be anywhere close to a "racing simulator" I found that the cars handled very well, much better than any "arcade" type of racing.
There are also six different tracks to choose from:
This race is placed in an ancient city type of environment, lots of old structures and buildings
A race that takes place around/in a big volcano, its just a big volcano.
This is a race that takes place in a big canyon, lots of sand and tall canyon walls.
This race weaves in and out of lots of tunnels/mines.
Bridge Ride is a race that takes place around a futuristic factory.
(unlocked by creating an online account) I believe that it is a figure-8 track that takes place on a giant rock.
While racing, you will find coloured spheres, these pick ups/power ups can help you in completing the race, by either helping you, or negating one of the other cars. There are 5 different kind of coloured orbs to pick up, each with its own special ability.
Gives you full boost for a short period of time.
Gives you a land mine that you can place on the ground behind you.
This gives your boost gauge a slight fill up.
This gives your shield a slight repair.
Gives you a electric shock that will slow anyone that is in front of you down for a split second.
Every vehicle is equipped with a shield wich degrades as you crash into walls or are hit by enemy weapons. If your shield is fully depleted during a race, your car will overheat and stop working, making you fail the current race.
