    I recently played Absolute Drift (on PS4) and had a ton of fun, even though it was very difficult to get the hang of. I feel like I would enjoy this more even though it honestly looks just as difficult as the drift game. Hoping for a console release.

    Just finished getting all the collectibles in the first free-roam area it starts you in. Game feels great and is absolutely beautiful. Time to get into some actual events.

    Haven't played a rally game in a while so I'm pretty bad at this :lol: The times to beat on the normal AI difficulty in the career are pretty forgiving though. Probably go back to free-roam levels for a bit and just enjoy the music while I try to get better at driving.

    cars handling sure feels a lot better and less twitchy compared to the demo I tried months ago. I'm having a lot of fun with it and it looks pretty good even on low-medium settings.

    The more I play it, the more it feels like Dirt Rally game stripped to its core functionalities. It is such a joy to play and the cars feel so light and playful - it almost reminds me of Beam.NG.

    There are also other little I appreciate such as the cheering when you unlock a new car and the reminder to service your car at service stations. The little details are so well thought out! :cool:

    Looking forward to a possible console release. Read that Absolute Drift was ported to consoles a year after initial PC release.

    The handling in this game is - frankly - sublime. Honestly, I am blown away. I didn’t like Funselektor’s first game, this feels like a genuine gem of an arcade racer with the underbelly of simulation underneath to a certain degree. I was absolutely not interested right up until I purchased it, top down racers don’t tend to do it for me outside of the king (Micro Machines). art of rally very much does, and with spectacle too.

    The game is a lot of fun. And I agree with @Brend and others who have put forth similar observations regarding the handling model: it's not "arcade". To me it feels a bit like Milestone's Gravel: simple but intuitive, fun and believable. The game smacks of an odd (yet successful) mix of fantasy and reality.

    I’m surprised by the depth of the control scheme. Man I need to get this game off my mind until console release, lol.

    First game I've got on my PC* for ages, and it really is a lot of fun. I'm playing it on low settings and it still looks great. The humour in the reasons why the "AI" retired is a hoot too, as I've seen "pigeon in cockpit" and "hungover" given as reasons.

    * It is just above the minimum requirements.
