The driving is . . . adequate? Played through the prologue last night, and it seems to me that Ghost has no idea what a relateable character is, or may be actively hostile to the concept.
You see, it’s all about Douchebag #1 and his buddies Female Douchebag and Black Douchebag who are a “crew” who do crimes that involve driving super-fast and giving high-fives to each other, because they kick SO MUCH ASS YOU GUYS. So they take a “job” stealing a prototype car from Douchebag #2 via an overly-elaborate and physically impossible scheme.* And then they get betrayed because PAYBACK is in the title of the game, duh.
After the prologue I could not tell which number Douchebag was behind the wheel because they both looked the same to me and maybe it was a flashback? And then I failed the first mission because I didn’t deliver the car in time, but the endless exposition was about how I was responsible now and couldn’t be racing around anymore, so I guess I should have been slamming the nitrous in what I thought was basically a “story” mission. And then I did something else because I didn’t want to sit through all that blather again.
Maybe I should play with the sound off.
*You see, they have to steal this proto-car that’s racing on a “closed course” by jumping it off a tow-truck ramp, but how the heck could your guy get onto the closed course with a frickin’ tow truck without there being an opening in the course that you could drive the proto-car through and NOT trash the shocks and frame of a car that sits about 3 inches above the ground, but hey man, you’re thinking way too hard about this and THIS JOB KICKED SO MUCH ASS YOU GUYS.
