Being a fan of the Sega Rally arcade style games I had high hopes that were shattered the second hour I played the game. For one the cars dont handle at all. They slide without any drip and basically make it a drift contest through the safari or canyons. Secondly you cant restart the current race without restarting the whole series so when an opponent spins or bumps you out of contention you have to deal with the bad finish position or restart all over.
The controls are bad and I turned it off and returned it after about 5 minutes of playing. The only good thing about the game was the graphics. Other then that the game sucked and I would not recommend it to anybody. Dirt was SOOOOOOOOO much better then this game.
