one of the best driving games i have ever played, and i've played a few. The actual driving is a brilliant experiance and trust me when i say that you will have never done anything like it, the pure sensation of speed and finesse is amazing and creates a deep and strategic experiance. The game's presentation is also a winner, the soundtrack is just phenomenal (i'll leave it at that) and the visual style is so fitting and stunning. The inlcusion of the buddy system is one part that has been frowned on but i quite like it, it may not be very deep, but racing against a bunch of AI has never felt so realistic as friendly banter and venemous threats are exchanged freely. The game's online is bassicaly the same but wit hthe added pressure of real opponents. For me the rallycross events are a standout and the range of car's, though limited, feels weighty, fun and appropriate. All in all, this is great, if you liked GRID, you'll love this, because let's face it, its's race driver on gravel. Good job Codies, another winner!
