    While 1nsane might be fun when you initially fire it up, this game is anything but "1nsane."
  2. 1nsane provides not only a sense of freedom but also a sense of chaos, and I recommend it highly as a great escape from the doldrums of day-to-day existence.
  3. The beautiful vehicles made me feel good even with all that tumbling. They might seem to lack details both in textures and mashes, but after some driving you realize that is all compensated by their in-game behavior.

    Enough options to keep off-road enthusiasts tearing up the dirt for quite some time, and the physics and damage modeling is a nice surprise. However, Insane, never really makes you say "Wow!" It's a solid, but not exceptional racing game that won't lock you up in an asylum (as the title suggests).
  5. The vehicles have a silly propensity to flip upside-down (even at 20mph), and stupid proportional gaffes abound, like a dune buggy that's able to muscle an SUV over a cliff. Which is just insane.

    There were a few fun moments while playing this, particularly in the Capture the Flag mode. Unfortunately, the cosmic physics combined with the hit-and-miss controls ripped the huge potential out of its heart.
  7. Considering that Insane's graphics are fantastic and it has enough gameplay diversity in its numerous modes to keep people playing for hours on end, it's disappointing that the one of the most basic features of a racing game, its control, ultimately drags the game into the mud.

    One of the best car (racing) games that I have ever played. For a game released in 2001, the graphics and the physics are just amazing.One of the best car (racing) games that I have ever played. For a game released in 2001, the graphics and the physics are just amazing.

    A real shame. It could've been great if only it supported some kind of controller. DirectInput is included in DirectX for a reason, A real shame. It could've been great if only it supported some kind of controller. DirectInput is included in DirectX for a reason, there's no excuse for any PC racing game to not support gamepads or other control devices. Stupid lazy developer. Full Review »

    The game is just so perfect and with a good steering wheel then you can't complain.
