4.5 PIPING HOT WEE WEE! aerris | 07/10/2009 | See all aerris's reviews (1) Well what can I say? This game is the puppy's plums, the pony's cahonies, the deer's spheres and the badger's nadgers all in one. I play this with a Logitech Driving Force Pro 900 degree steering wheel (locked down to 200 degrees) and it's one of the best racing games I've played. I have a racing pedigree of Sega Rally, Ridge Racer, most of the Colin McRae games, Forza, PGR on xbox, GT on PS and most recently Grid on PS3. This game fits more into the Sega Rally, Colin McRae and Grid category, in that its more arcadey than the "simulation" of Forza and Gran Turismo as you can turn off the car setup features and just get in and drive.The handling is light and drifty and you soon learn that this game is not all about the throttle, its about control, keeping up with the leaders and then over taking them when the moment is right . That's not to say you can't rip the tracks up if you want to though.The controls really give you a sense of the terrain, light and skitty on gravel and sudden bogginess in water and wet mud in the Malaysia Jungle tracks. I have been getting in to the LA circuits. Half tarmac, half off-road in stadium arenas. Massive jumps towards the final straights always set up a nail biting finish as you and Ken Block hit the ramp at the same time and fly 300 feet over a finish line.Graphics of course are fantastic, menus and set up easy to navigate and for such an impressive game its reasonably fast loading. Music is good although I'm sure I've listened to Prodigy's "Warriors Dance" about 700 time in the last 2 weeks.The inclusion on the Grid style "rewind" system when you stack it into a tree is nice too.Buy this game if you like racing. There are plenty of tracks and unlockables, nice looking cars too. I haven't played online yet but the campaign is definately worth a look.The only down side i can think of is that you can't save replays. You have some incredible wipeouts that are fun to watch again in slow mo!BUY BUY BUY!
