Travesty, nah, not at all.
Still played ok. Was still Lotus. It just felt a bit directionless and unfocused.
Id still go Lotus3 over Jaguar any day of the week.
Not that I hated Jaguar. It just only felt 3/4 finished, and those damn inconsistant framerates are very off putting. Find a barren area to drive and at 100kmph its faster than a heavily decorated area when going at 200kmph. That's bad enough on its own, but the transition from dense area to not very dense area (or the reverse) is even worse.
