Easy 1k for racing gamers, not so much for non-racers
Just my .02 cents to those who are debating getting this game. The only question you need to ask yourself is if you're good at racing games or not. If you've played a lot (As have I, look at my profile) then it really won't be that bad. Minorly frustrating, yes, but nothing major. You're looking about an hour learning curve before you finally figure out what's going on.
However, if you can't win at all in other games, I'd pass. I could see a lot of frustration coming from a non-racer.
The handling is very similar to MX vs ATV franchise. Your ski-doo is practically a dirtbike/quad, and much of the handling is making sure it's set up for landing, preloading suspension, leaning forward to slide the ass end around on turns, etc. I usually think game guides are way, way off on their times, and I completed this game in about 7 hours. I'd be able to get 5 hours now, but it's kind of pointless as I already 1k'd it. But, for us mere mortal gamers (Not those that claim to beat games like Orange Box in 10 hours and stupid claims like that), you're looking at 7-9 hours.
