    Not a bad idea, knew something like this would come along but to be honest I thought someone might make a 3D one using Street View instead. The game/app/wahtever itself has a lot of sucky points, such as the ultra-awful sound effect, and anywhere that doesn`t have super high res, it just shows the standard "Google greyout" tiles instead of using the best resolution that IS available, which it could easily have done. It should also interface with the "3D buildings" feature so that you can`t drive over any object that Google Earth already knows is there! Overall, not that well done considering what it COULD have been... but I guess it`ll get better in time.

    Lame? Fail? What`s wrong with you people, I thought this was class.

    And yep, you can go throught buildings (if you`re too crap to stay on the damn road). What were you expecting from a cute free game/application? Perhaps the designer should have gone in and rendered every tree, car, building, in fact just about every object out there. I mean, building an entire 3D model of the entire surface of the planet can`t be that hard. Right? RIGHT?!?

    OK, I`m much angrier than I should be over this so Imma shut up now.

    That was much worse than I thought it`d be. The turning circle was several miles and the brakes were clearly borrowed off a `70s muscle car - it just feels like free-wheeling rather than actually slowing down.

    Crap.

    Not a bad concept...
    The car`s steering is absolutely horrendous. It feels like the old GTA games, except every vehicle controls like the bus an is hella slow, unless you want to turn.

    Also, why turn signals? Are people actually going to bother stopping at the lights? haha

    but i think that you shouldnt be allowed to drive wherever you want. i think it should have boudries, like you crash into building and they fall down, or you can hit ppl and other cars that are also driving. and that your car gets destroyed. like a GTA game. this is kinda boring after a while
