I was expecting something new, a racing game set in a vast landscape with no rules as to where you can go.
Well it is vast, possibly too vast as it's so easy to lose your way if you attempt the free roam mode. There is a GPS system supposedly there to guide you around but it is sadly flawed and not that easy to use.
Likewise the game instructions are not easy, often you'll get a message saying something like "challenge spotted check your map" but when you do there is no clear sign of anything to look for.
But it's aracing game so what is that like? It's pretty good, you do get a sense of speed as you thunder across arid desert and through forest fires but the physics of the cars and bikes is odd. They don't respond as you would expect and tend to cause frustration as you try to turn on an incline.
The graphics are not stunning like those in GRID but they are good, given the size of the playing area. The sounds of the engines could have been a little more varied but they're not bad.
Overall I was disappointed and yet I have to say there is a lot of enjoyment to be had racing the quad bikes and doing fantastic leaps on trail bikes. I think it has been let down by several things. the handling of the vehicles, the lack of information as to what to look for as you drive around, the poor GPS that misguides you and takes you miles out of your way and the constant loading.
Nevertheless I do like the game but the above do make for irritating times in an otherwise pretty good attempt at redefining the racing genre. If you like mad driving in hostile environments instead of going round the same old tracks over and over and don't mind overlooking the niggly flaws then buy the game.
Even horribly basic errors have been made, i.e. being able to drive through some buildings and other solid objects. The racing itself feels dull and spectacularly uninvolving, and very frustrating when coming to the end of a race, your steering fails you or the car refuses to automatically change down a gear, so your competitors overtake and you need to do the race over and over again. The lack of storyline is probably the least of this game's worries.
The whole idea of 'open-world' (or GTA clone) games is becoming tiresome, especially requiring to discover 500 oil barrels throughout the 14,000km square map, which is frankly ridiculous and lets be brutally honest, boring. As for the other challenges, chase the helicopter is quite involving but doesn't really prove to be much of a 'challenge', vista-points would work if the graphics proved to be worthy of the Xbox 360s potential. With the collectables, such as liveries and clothing, I feel no urge to do so as it deems itself pointless, yet such a key challenge in completing the game.
In summary, the background idea of the game was, in theory, very good, but Asobo and Codemasters have really not applied it in the best manner. The weather conditions are good, but not as good as promised in the pre-release trailers etc. The visuals are not up to current standard and fall way short of Codemasters previous releases, the challenges seem repetitive and unnecessary, and overall is generally dull. I've given the game 3 stars as it reflects the game perfectly. Average. That itself a compliment.
- massive map
- large selection of vehicles, clothing, liveries and paint styles
- variety of vehicles (different vehicles good for different types of races or terrain etc.)
- different race types and lost of different challenges(difficulty can be changed to suit the driver)
- different "things" to pick up along the way i.e. hundreds maybe thousands of "fuel" (game's currency) cans scattered around the map
- vista points (points with a good view)
- bonus cars around the map
- liveries (paints that can be put on a cars)
- many different areas to explore
- in the online mode you cannot go in a private match with friends to show them places on the map
- the damage metre is unforgiving which sometimes get annoying
- difference in challenge difficulty (some can be really easy whereas others are quite hard
The so called experts who have given this game 5/10 in my opinion are wrong. There is a lot to do in the game and the graphics are also not as bad as some are making out.
Now for the good points. Mainly: the sheer AMOUNT of content. The hundreds of skins, the tons of vehicles, the truly GARGANTUAN world map... this game delivers in SPADES. I'm still figuring out how they fit all that in an XBOX, let alone a game disc...
I would say this game is... passable. You'll have fun with it, but don't expect to get hooked.
