This game is great fun to start off with but becomes frustrating very quickly! The graphics are excellent and the course design is superb. Racing against friends is also great fun. The main festival mode starts off very well with nice races and good battles between yourself and the CPU racers, however, in the latter part of the festival, the races are virtually impossible to win. The games designers have seen fit to use a technique called "rubber-banding" whereby if you pull too far ahead of the CPU racers, they are given a speed boost to catch you up and purposely prevent you from winning the races!!! You will be tearing your hair out in frustration when playing the latter parts of the festival mode. Do not buy this game hoping for a decent chance of a platinum trophy as you will regret it, and the ranked players online are seriously good and very hard to beat, but for sheer brutal racing fun against friends it is a great buy!
Is exactly what this game is all about. Possibly one of the best off-road games this generation...and ever. Crashing has never been so realistic in this type of over the top game, nor has the replayabilty factor or pure fun levels of awesomeness. Playing through the game you will quickly understand why it has got such a tightly knit communtiy, as it's not for the average racer, it's more of a wild card game. Online is also very good, the occasional bad connection could totally ruin your experience, but it is very rewarding to knock someone else of thier quad, or give them the 'V' sign. There's a few things this game needs to be a 10/10 but the great out do the good and bad point of this game. Creating you own race is always rewarding, and a nice choice set up gets you going fast. There is plenty of free liveries to donwload and some great DLC tracks and a new mode aswell. All in all if you love over the top crashing games you will no doubt love this. Or if you like just pure stupidly driven fun.
I got this game for free with my PS3 and I love it. Great fun, nice graphics, easy to play but kind of difficult to master if you want to progress far which is good if you want it to last longer. It is a great choice for the off-road wild racing fans. However, if you are a rally simulation game freak then this is not for you. This is a game for those who want to have fun with a regulations free racing game with imagination and lots of dirt and wreckreation!
