FO1 had too many bugs to truly be enjoyable. I lost too many races to things beyond my control. While it wasn't unusual for me to lead for all but the final lap (and lead by a lot), it killed me when the auto-replace (or whatever it was called when it put you back on the track) would fuck up. Too many times that it put me far back, or put me directly in front of some debris so that I had to reverse, or in one reoccuring issue put me without the drive wheels on the ground so that my tires just spun without gripping anything.
FOUC was better. Much better. But I feel they missed a great opportunity to add personality and vendettas against the AI drivers, and felt that the whole obstacle part was dumb (same in the first.)
Nothing about FO was extraordinary. The racing is what made it fun. BugBear can do that under any title. So I'll still buy this.
