  • Race your friends in local 4-player split-screen or compete with up to 8 on Xbox LIVE.
  • Knock out your competitors and take the race lead with rockets, mines, dynamite drops and more.
  • Explore the new Stunt Park to gather all of the collectibles and showoff your skills.
  • Find and collect car parts to unlock vehicles, each with unique speed and handling characteristics, giving you an edge in your next race.

    seriously now. sure this is a mk rip off just like kinect is a wiimote rip off. these games are poor arrempts for marketshares nintendo classically takes good care of. just dont buy it and you re good. The sony brawler at least offers some sony nostalgia and is probably fun, but this ms mr piss maneken avatargames just stink.
