Setup & Timing
Multiplayer is right on the main menu. Download time is split into shorter transmissions. Opening credits are unforgivably long and unskipable.
Menus & Navigation
For some reason, the menu requires you to tap on the symbol to the left of the option. So for example, you can't tap the word "Multiplayer" on the menu. Instead, you must tap the symbol to the left of the word "Multiplayer" instead. Ummm... why?
Ease Of Use / Play Control
The driving controls are simple and responsive. Steering, acceleration, and braking are all button based, and it works fine. No real complaints here.
Category Score: 13.5 / 15
There are not a lot of options in the Single-Card Download portion of Corvette Evolution GT like differing cars and there are only tracks, but that is OK (not great, just OK) because they want to use the Single-Card Download multiplayer feature as a basic racing multiplayer and a way to entice you to buy the game and then switch to Multi-Card multiplayer. The graphics in the game are gritty and slightly unclear, which can make it difficult to see which way you need to turn until you're right up on it. The sound is actually a annoying and only comes from the host. While the sound will let you know if other cars are near, so does the lower screen. Mute the DS an play some good music.
I've played far worse games than Corvette Evolution GT, but I've also played far better. The game-controlled AI racers are weak, and easy to pass even from last place. It's sometimes hard to see where you're going. The sound is annoying. There are only two racetracks to race on. In terms of Single-Card Download Play racing, Mario Kart DS is the undisputed champ to date and Ridge Racer DS is an inexpensive alternative for racers who prefer simulators to cartoony. There are better racing simulators with Single-Card Download out there, and some will be reviewed here soon.
Make the credits sequence skipable (or shorter) (or both).
Reprogram the menu so that the words themselves are tappable.
Make the game-controlled AI racers a challenge, or give them the ability to be better or removed altogether.
Overall Single-Card Download Rating: 69 / 100 (a.k.a. 34.5/50)
