Whether they can maintain this over the course of a full game remains to be seen, but it’s certainly a unique take on the genre. Some sections look like a more explosive take on the Forza Horizon special events, mixed with a little bit of Burnout. If it’s done well, it could actually be surprisingly good.
Is it the best use of the license? We’ll leave that to you to decide, but it certainly looks entertaining.
