I really liked Slotz for a while, but now the game has become a chore. The championship races are just long, not fun (especially the abominable timed races), because I can't lose. What fun is there in that? I can't tell any difference between Hard mode and Easy mode. What is the difference if any? The computer cars don't seem to do any better at all. They are aren't any faster, that's for sure. My car completely blows them out of the water. At first, sure, the game seemed hard, but it wasn't long before it became difficult to lose. In fact, the longer the race, the easier it is as it just gives you even more and more of a ridiculously huge lead. I've tried messing with the player "throttle" setting and the advanced settings, but they are confusing and still don't seem to result in a more challenging game, at least not much more. If I set the player throttle adjustment to 100 that does seem to make the game slightly more challenging, but still not that much because still my car has a much higher top speed and faster acceleration then the computer controlled cars. What am I missing? Hopefully something. I wish they'd just made Hard mode hard.
