To make matters worse, at times the game will switch to 'The Zone' effect. As cool as this effect is, I found the blurring distracting and as a result there were times when I couldn't see where the next turn was. The game takes an interesting direction in dealing with story elements. Instead of using clips from the movie or FMVs, it uses still art images of Stallone and the announcers. It is interesting, but not all that great.
Sound is okay, but nothing to scream about - okay it is something to scream about, but not in a good way. In order to give the game a better tie to the movie, the game uses the voice of Sylvester Stallone making for a rather painful audio experience. The rest of the sounds are bland and lacking, even some of the now standards - such as engine echo when going under a tunnel - are not present.
