Surprised it's £45 @Amazon. I thought it was a budget release? Certainly looks like one from the reviews I've seen so far.
I’ve got it coming from Boomerang once it stops snowing. I’ll report back if I remember. The reviews I’ve seen said don’t expect much, but I’m not fussed if I’m renting it
Poor mans Dirt by the looks of it, might be ok though, think I read somewhere there will be a demo

The PC version on Steam seems to be getting mostly favourable reviews at the moment.

I've played the PC demo and it's an unashamedly Arcade Off Road racer which is fine by me.
If you expect more than that you'll be disappointed.
I've seen it compared to Sega Rally, hoping they put the demo up on the UK PS4 store as its US only at the moment
Can't see this holding it's price for very long.
I have this on PC, it's fun but a little shallow. It does play like Sega Rally, just minus the time counting down against you all the time. It's a Milestone game, be warned, it's very unpolished. More than once I have propelled into the sky hitting a pothole. It can look stunning at times, but the performance is very uneven.
'Gravel'? I think devs are running out of viable names..

Make yourself a US account
Milestone, expect screen tear aplenty. I'm waiting for some reviews before committing.

Irony is that the majority of the cover is a truck driving through water.

Got it on ps4 but I'll try the demo on the US store 1st. Fyi only the ps4/pc version has hdr not the Xbox one.
there is a demo on xbox if you want to see what its like,honestly dont expect much and the graphics are awful.i will still bite when its a tenner next week lol
£35 for a crappy arcade game? OVERPRICED!!! I recommend checking reviews before clicking hot.

Yeah and the 2 demo stages are both in a snow blizzard (the snow effect is absolutely terrible) and I cant help but think they did that on purpose for the demo as without the snow you’d see how bad the trackside graphics are!

It played okay but I felt bored within a couple of minutes, the game has a voiceover announcer bloke but he’s boring and says stupid things.

maybe when it’s £5!
I've had this game on my radar for a while, didn't know it was out. Seems to be getting good reviews ACG (one of my favourite reviewers) gave it a "Buy". Does anyone know if it uses the rumble triggers on Xbox One?

I didn't even think rental companies existed anymore lol.
Downloaded the demo from US store. Pretty disappointed, doesn't look very detailed and as mentioned already, only snow tracks so you can't really get a proper feel for it. It has DLC as well. I think I'm going to go and pick up Dirt 4 over this.
Think this will drop in price pretty fast.

Watch his reviews myself, very honest and uses the term "I like this sort of thing but you may not" depending on what you like. Great way of putting it so you can have your own opinion and super detailed reviews that cover every aspect of the game. So I will also recommend him.
Played the PS4 demo earlier, its certainly not going to get any extra sales based on that. Just one poor snow stage to try, menus that looked straight from PS3 and bland gameplay.

This'll be bargain bin in no time.
Poor man's Sega rally which is a shame was really looking forward to this
Not quite relevant to this game, but do any of you ever play Blur on the Xbox 360 any more?
I've been thinking about buying this too. Will download the demo for Xbox on Friday but I don't think I'll be biting till the price comes down into the late teens or early twenties...
