Very Good

Everything is awesome except ...

This is a great game. It is beautiful. The soundtrack is very befitting. The control is smooth and easy to use. The game play is very addictive because every time you get a different experience depends on how you run and track. If you love off-road racing and occasional death-experience you will enjoy this game very much.

However this is one disappointing factor I need to mention. Every race has its own limitations on what vehicle you can drive. Almost all races only allow you to choose from 2-3 out of all the vehicle choices. Some only allow you to use 1 type. For example, one time-limit race only allow you to choose the truck (one of the slowest vehicle in game)...

I can understand they made this choice to challenge the player and spice things up, but if you don't really like driving a particular vehicle you will be very frustrated. I wish I can drive whatever car I want for every race however that is not the case. If you don't mind that minor detail then everything else is pretty great.

This was one of those sleeper games that I just rented because I kinda liked the first one but did not love it and thought they might Improve. Well, they did and it shows. The splitscreen mode that goes up to 4 players rivals the flatout derby splitscreen for those who have played that. The monster trucks are a nice addition and the races themselves are lots easier than the old one which is good news if you are like me and hated the old game's AI difficulty. This game is a huge improvement on the last one and youl will atleast rate the game 8 or higher.

This game is worth playing. There is a lot of variety in the races in single player mode and playing online is as fun as it was in the first one. This is not the most visually appealing racing game out there and I really think it can be improved upon. This time around the landscape creates many more obstacles in the races that keep it fresh and exciting each time through.
