Once again such a Console Implementation: Racing Game that only supports X-Box Controller or X-Box Steering wheel, no other Input devices. I didn't try the Game myself for long, but even in ' Simulation mode ' I only have a pure Arcaderacer.

Back then I loved the Game at 360:D Now finally for the Pc!! Clear HD it is ^^ but not so much has been changed in the Textures. Despite everything a super game also runs butter-soft. To recommend the long Off-road race likes and generally enjoy jumping. Clearly the Price is also Reduced quite High but Fair in my Eyes. Cheers

Then got free n key For game to help them with the Bug with Log Files and CRash Dumps.Problem unfortunately not yet fixed but I am constantly struggling new Binaries to error the Bug. Only the Support is really great. Game makes Mood anyway (even with Controller) Therefore n clear YES for Purchase

Had bought the Game for the PS3 in 2009 and at some point found it really good. Now it's coming out for PC and current Consoles, too. Accordingly, bought the same. What's a pity is that it's just an HD remake of a Game that if I'm not mistaken, it first appeared in 2008. The Textures have also not been adjusted or have only been slightly adjusted. Furthermore, the Game reveals clear Deficiencies in the Input Possibilities, because you can't get further than the start screen without a Controller. Running a Stream or Music in the Background only works until you get out of The Game Tabt, for example, to skip a Song or do anything else. If you want to get back into the Game you see a blue screen. The Application must be closed and restarted through the Task Manager. On a Console, the Game may be going very well, so I never had any Problems on my PS3. But for the PC, there is definitely a par Days to be worked on. I hope there are still updates to come! The Game itself is Fun and is definitely worth €30th. By that I mean not cheaply, but appropriately. I probably would have paid £40. Definitely a successful Racing Game that was Designed for a Console. Unfortunately, I can only give a mixed Rating on the PC. It is a great pity about the gift Potential on the PC platform.
