Nice review here, and I feel like you hit the nail on the head. I've played it, and your ability to eloquently convey the fine balance needed to be successful is laudable. Fun as hell game. And a damn good review.

Minor spelling/typo thing: I'm sure you meant to put "stave" as opposed to "starve" in the last paragraph.

This really is a great review, EmP, one of your most readable and informative to date. So I'll point out this sentence, which is a bit of a wreck: "As such, you can find yourself spending a lot of the game eating dirt, or being fling off cliffs, so it’s to the game’s credit that, even in the higher rated races, so do a lot of the other quad racers." If you fix that and the comma splice that kicks off the last paragraph, that'll take care of any overwhelming grammatical concerns I had. If I ever review this game (I have the PS3 version, but haven't yet cracked open the seal), I'm sure I'll take a different approach... but I liked yours here, too. Great stuff!

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

Nice work Gary, good to see you post something other than pretty screenshots for my reviews.

Concerto of unbridled chaos, nice.

BTW, I just went in and fixed the 3 or 4 typos I found. I think one was already mentioned in the topic. But yeah.

I don't have to prove I'm refined - that's what makes me refined!

Thanks you, gang, for the fixes and the kind words. I kinda want to stick another paragrapgh in there somewhere about a few things I glossed over, so will have another good look at the whole thing once I get some time to myself.

And special thanks to Marc, who has proved helpful to me for the first time in all the years I have known him.

For us. For them. For you.
