  • Summary: Forget rules, forget roads, Insane takes you to the world's most extreme locations and lets you drive all over them. Put your foot down and take on Internet players from across the globe. It's not just driving -- it's driving you mad. [Codemasters]

  1. Listen: Insane works. It works because it's multiplayer, it works because it's simple, and it works because it's fun. You'd do well to remember that, but you won't, because you're so desperate to replay the cliched gaming you've already experienced on your thousand-pound calculator. Stupid. All the best...

    There are more than enough game variants here to keep you happy, playable in a convoy of fully customisable off-road vehicles and across some really detailed and expansive terrain. Check it out, it's the ultimate backseat drive.

    While 1nsane might be fun when you initially fire it up, this game is anything but "1nsane."
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  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.

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

    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.

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. Expand
