I've never played any of the previous rally cross's so this is my first time playing the series and it is arcade action fun. Sure it may not be realistic like other rally racing games but it is not suppose to be. This game is just plain fun due to its fast pace racing action and simplicity.
Note: For those complaining about the controls just match your race car to the terrain (ex. dirt terrain)
it is a good all around game but the only car changes you can make are paint jobs and either dirt or street set ups. about half way through the game you have raced all the tracks and it starts to get repetitive. a good game for challenging friends head to head though.
