Skill RatingThis game is enjoyed by 14+ year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. The realism of the game requires a high level of driving skill.
While there aren't any difficulty levels to choose from in some game modes, in single-player arcade races you can choose from three difficulty settings that increase the skill on the AI drivers. In this game mode you can still earn money and experience, although the amount varies on the difficulty level. In all modes, there are several options you can customise to alter the difficulty level, including traction control and toggling between manual and automatic gearshifts. Racing in a slower car bracket will also give you more time to react to gameplay.
You can choose to enable a racing line, which highlights the best route to take, and there is also an indicator which tells you when you should brake, although this is very small and easy to miss.
