Top Gear Overdrive is a good game, nothing special but definitely not bad. Graphically is good, especially in hi-res, but it's not very detailed. It wants be realistic but the colours are unrealistic and there aren't convincing particular effects. The sense of speed with the last cars is great.
The OST has its moment.
The game is too short/easy, I had some problems just with some races, the learning curve is not rewarding like Top Gear Rally for instance. Once you quickly learn how to drive, you win (wich means arrive at least 4th in every race). Some replay value is given by unlock hidden cars (like a Taco-car haha).
Controls are very good and responsive. Kudos for the 4 player mode.

I don't want to spoiler but racing in the last track worth the time spent in beating the game ;-)
PS Top Gear Rally 2, even if it's very different, is a better game. It's more deep, original and challenging.
