Summary: this game has gotten off with way too many laid back and generous reviews. from the menu and intro it looked to be a fairly decent game. im skeptical and always have to buy games myself to see if theyre good or bad, and holy damn this is the worst one and makes me reconsider actually listening to ppl. im a big rally fan in general and figured this game would be fun, and it WOULD be, if it didnt have broken controls.
Summary: This game is great to play. The different terrain makes it a challenge to complete. It is fun finding short cuts throught the courses to beat the clock. If you are up for a good challenge then this is the off road game for you! Graphics are a bit lacking, but the game play makes up for it.
Summary: I love racing games and thought this would be a great concept for a video game, so I was excited to get this for Christmas. My friend and I sat around playing this for about an hour and we realized all of its downsides (we have yet to notice upsides): 1) No 2-player mode. Huh? This is a staple of every kind of racing game! 2) No attention to sound design. The same &*$! song plays between every stage throughout their abundantly long loading screens.
Summary: Far out rally game. I have to say that this is a must-have for any long distance rallying fan. Correction, for every rallying enthusiast. If you like watching the real Paris-Dakar Rally on SPEED Channel or if you've ever wanted to what this kind of rally racing is all about, then either rent or buy this game. Either way, you won't be disapointed at all.
Summary: hey, if you are an avid rally fan, do not buy this game!! this is one of the WORST rally games I have ever played in my life. every aspect of this game is sub-par. if I were you i would save my coin for an at least half way decent game (i.e. wrc) I hope this helps you rally fans save a chunk of change.
Summary: Hi. The game is so much fun! You can try to make it over the dunes and make it up the hills and not get stuck! If you hit a jump too hard, you will flip! You might hit a tree or slip down in a HOLE! Be careful not to get stuck on a ROCK or a tire will fall off! That is BAD! LOL You will love it if you watch the real Paris-Dakar Rally on Speed Channel.
Summary: I've always wondered why anyone had yet to make a game version of the Dakar, but then again I'm still looking for a game where you get to climb Everest. I can't help but wonder after reading the reviews of this game if the wide variety of opinions don't say more about race fans than they do about the game. It seems the Americans hate it. But then again, Americans could care less about the Dakar Rally.
Summary: Purchased the game, what a waist. Rushed home to play, looked pretty cool. Noticed it was a DVD not CD like some other ps2 games, which means more space, better graphics, and possibly a better game. ONE WORD FOR YOU NOOOOOPE! I wish I would have gone to the winghouse for happy hour instead. ;} At least then I would have had a pleasurable expierence when waisting $..
