With this racer, you don't tune up the car, you tune up the driver


While any console racer worth its salt will allow players to get under the hood of their motor and fiddle with its settings, this Alfa Romeo-endorsed speed-fest allows you to tinker with the driver instead.

Much like in a role-playing game, players accumulate experience points as they win races, credits which can be spent on developing human skills such as intimidation and endurance to psych-out your opponents on the track. But while SCAR's odd approach brings a little strategy to the blistering action, slippery car handling, sloppy brakes and frustratingly-smart opponents let the side down.
