hehe yeah the menus are a bitch, i finally just kept pressing enter repeatedly and it runs you through some bizarre series of events. If you keep continuing after every race you get to race every type of car available in the game.

basically the way the menus work is each time you press "enter" you get a new batch of options above the current selection
So, you move down the tree until you get to go drive something, and with each "enter" there's options that are configurable for that step.

So yeah, its confusing, especially since many of the options are blocked due to the demo status of the game. Also instead of escape key getting you out of each option screen, its the Backspace key, and "delete" key to change options...bizarre.

9. It's worth it at 60MB. That's peanuts! Sep 13, 2003, 13:52 MeatForce
 
I am loathe to admit this kind of thing, but I simply couldn't for the life of me figure those menus out! So far, I have only been able to drive the SUV - couldn't even find descriptions of the other cars, let alone where I would go in order to drive them... Still, the little bit I've seen fills me with glee. I am a driving game whore for sure, and this one ain't bad at all.

worth it, though configuration is a bitch, but once you get that down there's a variety of cars, from an old 300sl gullwing to whatever that new roadster is, to some mercedes SUV i've never seen before (which you drive off-road) And the unique thing about it is its like Grand theft Auto, in that all the tracks that you race on are based in one environment, in this case the Alps. See a castle up in the mountains in the distance? Get the SUV, crisscross mountain roads through tunnels over hills, through alpine meadows and forests till you get there. You can easily drive around for an hour and not hit the same road twice. Good looking game too, though really you should be using a wheel to get the most out of it.

The music was incredibly annoying and it made my system go to blue screen and reboot while I was trying to configure my gamepad with it.

3. Worth the download... Sep 12, 2003, 12:04 Quackodilly
 
...at least to show off the graphics to your mates. If not for some of the most lifeless scenary (the world seems to be very stiff) compared to other recent racing games, this could have been the most beautiful racing game I've seen on PC yet. Gameplay is OK, seems kind of realistic (can't be the judge of that....never drove a car in my life), so if you want the breakneck speed of , let's say, Midnight Club 2, you will be very disappointed. Oh, and dashboard view is a nice bonus.

1. Can't judge a demo... Sep 12, 2003, 11:34 MeatForce
 
...by its filesize, but it's really beginning to freak me out that now when I see a <100MB demo, I immediately begin to wonder what must be wrong with it
