I hate "walk up to the enemy and hope to get the first hit in" games.

Loved the film though, I have no idea why people keep calling it bad. It's zany and zany is always good.

I like Supercars 2 the most too, except for that first level on easy mode. It's actually one of the harder levels for me due to the really slow speed and the lack of weapons!
