When I first saw this game, I thought it was a decent run with a great like Forza. Yes and no. They need to really alter the game to make it incredible. It was an 8 in its Genre concidering most racing games are horrible, but a 6 all around as a game. So 7 is fair
Good: The graphics are beautiful, I enjoyed the detail of all the different environments you race in. The controls are great too. I enjoy a loose vehicle. Its mostly loose do to the dirt, mud, snow, and ice you race on.
Bad: The Gymkhana events. I enjoyed the races and even the rallys, but these events are annoying. Drifting is fun, but having to do all the tricks... it wasnt my thing. Especially running over blocks and cardboard robots.
Ugly: NO CUSTOMIZATION!!! You get different sponsers as you level up, but they select the vehicle and what it looks like. Once you get into the race, you can adjust some of your basic settings like ride height and stiffness. But that is it. You get a better vehicle, but I didnt was a Ford Focus with half the events.
