BullettJul 20, 2007Oh dear. Not much of a fun game. The Cars are almost impossible to control with the standard setup and even after a couple of hours fiddling with setting on my G25 it was not much better. Other games work out of the box, the basic levels should not be impossible to complete. Also this is not very friendly on the PC - No mouse control of the menus? come on thats just sloppy lazy programming. Looks nice though.… Expand

Dec 10, 2013This is all about using the keyboard to play:
The 4x4 4WD trucks handling is good enough. Different vehicle class has very different handlings, some pretty pleasant and easy to drive, so are hard-ass like it’s Formula 1.
But Lotus Elise (or similar sportcar models) has poor dampling (33% bad), poor stability control (only 67% effective), rather poor braking help (20% bad). Traction control is not bad after all, but it’s not realistic after you bump into something to a near-stop speed and then step on the gas pedal too soon, that along with the bug like dampling calculation spins your car around non-sensely!
Still talking about the Lotus Elise (vehicle class) you can't steer faster enough around U bends (33% too slow). The dampling are too sensitive sometimes. You better use a steering wheel to drive.
Lack of steering speed and brake strength adjustments for keyboard is a put off! The playing off various kind of short videos per event or at some races here and there are time wasting! No key assigned to skip past those confusing videos.
Buy FlatOut 1 instead!… Expand
