Other Games

I recently succumbed to a couple of Humble Bundle deals which included the following driving games:

  • Real World Racing
  • DiRT Showdown
  • DiRT 3
  • GRID
  • GRID 2
  • Euro Truck Simulator 2

    I still have GRID: Autosport which I fire up from time to time to enjoy some racing where I can crash into people's cars with out feeling like a terrible human. So the two GRID games don't really hold much interest for me. I was interested in giving DiRT 3 a bash, but I quickly found that the unskippable intros and horrible menu system was too much pain for me to deal with when I just wanted a quick rally session. I bought Richard Burns Rally a couple of months back and that will remain my go to when I feel like getting a car side ways on gravel.

    Euro Truck Simulator 2 has interested me a bit. I've put in a few hours and have found it strangely zen like; speeding around a fake Europe in a big rig.

    The truckin and the rally games got me reminiscing about RalliSport Challenge. I only ever played it on XBox using a controller but by damn I thoroughly enjoyed running the Racing Truck up Pikes Peak. I don't know of any other game which has featured rally trucks. I'm actually tempted to fork over $10 and buy this 10 year old game just to give it a shot with my new force feedback wheel.
