Just want to post again saying I was stupidly playing in Arcade mode this whole time. Changed to Sim mode and wow, this game totally comes alive.
Now, this is the way I expected an off road game like this to drive like; definitely more real now. Sense of speed is kinda low depending on what view you use but you'll realistically over shoot turns if you don't watch out. Very touchy to not lock up the brakes which is cool now. Fire roads become crazy cause your vehicle will bounce out of control over bumps if you're not careful. Slides and powering through mud now gets squirrelly.
Very cool trail deformation leaving tracks behind.
