Like DIRT and MOTORSTORM had a baby.
Glad i didn't listen to the reviews. This game is in fact very awesome. Lots of work went into making this game and it plays just like. I wanted something fun,easy and controlled well. I wanted that arcade feel and this was it!! You can just jump right in and play this bad boy. Lots of fun to be had. Hope the devs make another or add a few more DLC's. Good job Milestone you made a beast of a racing game!!
A real throwback to the Dreamcast/Xbox/Xbox 360 days of solid arcade racing games. Graphics are ok, nothing too special, and even then there are some framerate drops which isn't great. The handling is fun though, classic arcade off-road style with controllable drifting. The AI level is mostly quite consistent, which is often an issue with this type of game, so that's really important. Also shout out to the big FMV energy in the rival driver introductions and the presentation overall, love it.
This game markets itself as some kind of offroad alternative to GRID, but it doesn't have the budget to pull that off. It's a fun game, and reminds me a lot of the first Motorstorm in terms of driving feel. Disregard the tags - this is absolutely not a sim, it's more like a 'sim-oriented' arcade game. If that sounds like something you'd enjoy, give it a go - you'll probably like it.
Game runs smooth and looks beautiful in 4K ultra settings. This is the best arcade rally cross racing game out there. The vehicle control is great with your standard controllers. It's just such a mindless fun game.
I'm usually a fan of these lesser known games made by smaller developers or games that just about good ol' innocent racing. What I like:Racing can be funbig trucks, cool carssound design is alrightgraphics are okthe big tracks are awesome, big jumps, good speedwhat I dont like:stadium races, esp the 1v1, super boringraces are also a bit too shortracing physics are weird, you tend to kick the rear out pretty easy and not a single car has enough torque to drift the corners. I think this game could benefit from a bit more weight in the physics for sure. Nothing wrong with a Sim-Cade game but I think this game would benefit more to go in one direction instead of both. Either full arcade or full sim. This game suffers from an identity crisis (or lack of) and doesn't really excel in anything at all. Although I think I like this game more than I dislike it.I think this game is fine if you want a mindless racing game and you pick it up on a deep sale.
impression such a great underrated racing game, has pretty much good graphics on today's standard, although this game was released in 2018 you should compare the graphics with dirt 3 or wrx fia 5 and this game beats em.(quick tip; u can even tweak the game's engine .ini file to make it even more beautiful)the phisics is decent for a game made with unreal engine not necessarily great, a little bit bouncy/jelly like tho u can tune the indifidual car's settings, the AI is kinda good, rubberbanding as expected, game's progression is linear based of the season and levels that we gain as we progress the race and do certain things (e.g drifting)other stuff worth pointing out; - features ; the game has common features like achievements & controller support, trading cards and inventory items (if u into that), weekly event and multiplayer (yes the game has mp, pretty nice for a less well-known game like gravel) - cars ; the game has 48 cars in total not that much but its good, what's awesome is that the game has cars that other racing games like dirt, wrc and forza never have (e.g toyota 222d, mitsubishi outlander sport asx, & pajero, vauxhall astra 4s, toyota land cruiser and hilux (not arctic truck) sick gt86 r3, nissan navara, heck it even have suzuki gran vitara! how cool is that)(the game also have 4 subarus kudos for that) - things i dont really like ; dlcs , yes the game has plenty of downloadable contents to buy meaning the base game doesnt really have enough content to enjoy in fact, u can only access 30% of the game's content from the base game, not to mention the car packs too!, the races is kinda short with 50 seconds to 2 minutes duration on average, whats wierder is that the tracks are identical so u feel like repeating the same race. but it has wide variety of race modes like elimination, time attack so that would help, the game doesnt have a proper rally game (with pace notes and codriver like dirt or wrc had) is it actually just a offroad racing game (kind of a bummer), no customizations u can only choose certain liveries of the car with you can get by progressing the game (not a big deal imo), the game is also a little bit more expensive so i recommend buying the game while its on sale final verdict my opinion about Gravel, should you, •avoid it •consider it •shortlist it •buy it ?well if youre a diehard focused sim rally fans then i reckon you should consider it, because the game doesnt have rally and its more of a casual arcade than an actual sim so yeet your $1000 thrustmasters fanatech g27 setup the heck out lol, i find using keyboard or a xbox controller is more enjoyable..BUT, if u want a good non-mainstream arcade offroad racing timekiller then you should go ahead and buy it :)
