Car Quest starts running out of gas through its failure to recall where you're going next. New areas are unlocked one at a time, often as small openings revealed via speedy cutscenes. These are very easy to forget, especially if you put the game down for a bit. So, I found myself searching through overly familiar looking sections hoping to stumble upon my next path. This became worse after the first few hours, as the world continued to grow.
Car Quest led on a promise of an epic adventure, but with highly monotonous gameplay, coupled with a visually dull world, and car handling that felt less like a sports car and more like a boat, there just were not enough redeeming features for me to say it’s worth $9.99. You’re better off not buying this car from the lot.
