Alongside the new environment, developer Nadeo has boldly made a radical departure for the car physics of this tricksy stunt racing series.
It is divisive on paper, but a design that fits the sequel's setting perfectly; the skittish performing fleas of old have been replaced by something with a bigger bottom.
It is a heavier, arcade style of handling, reminiscent of Ridge Racer, where letting go of the back end to power-slide into corners is the key to success. It is also a game that's now purely about the thrill of ghost-based racing rather than the puzzle and platform modes of old.
