10 mins later, 3rd game and I finished easy. I've got used to the right analogue stick for drifting. The up-down flick you have to do each time you drift.
20 mins later, 5th game and 3rd stage on medium. Used the LB, RB buttons. It's better but needs to be using triggers?
2 other issues.
1 - You need to take your accelerator off to tap brake then accelerate again to drift. It doesn't feel natural. Would feel better if you could keep accelerate down when you tap brake to trigger drift.
2 - Being able to break an existing drift to go the other direction would be good (ala outrun 2006). It would make the S sections feel better.
Maybe have no other cars on easy mode as well, to allow the player to get familiar with the game without bumping shit.
