Default Re: XPand Rally SP Official Demo

Wow, surprisingly fun for a rally game!

I dont play many racing games, and ive always hated rally games(too fast, monotonous, drawn out, and no other cars) but this is fun! And the graphics are amazing. If you stop and look at things closely they arent mind blowing but unlike many games, this one looks nearly photo-realistic when driving.

Very nice

BTW, I was playing at 1600x1200 2xAA 8xAF with all settings maxed and it ran great the whole time. Only one map slowed down to where I noticed it in some places (its the one with water). Other than that, the only performance problem I had was when plowing through a lot (15 or more) of the ribbon fence posts, the framerate would drop to a crawl... though i had the special physics thing turned on that makes these move realisticly, so its probably just a fluke in the physics engine.
