Hard to tell how Gravel will turn out.

It is all off-road racing.

They say that they want it to be "simcade" which could mean anything.

If the handling is good, this could be pretty cool. I'm betting that it will be just a little too arcade, but I'd happily be wrong.

This has been delayed until early 2018.

The new stadium racing video looks like it might be good.

The other disciplines desperately need shorter, tighter tracks. I'm hoping speedcross has some better, tighter, tracks that they don't show.

The new non-stadium track game-play video mainly shows about 10 minutes of cross country style driving which is mostly straight or with tiny course corrections, Throw in a rare small jump or a rare shorter but still very large curve. That just looks incredibly boring.

Handling is looking a little better than I expected but it is still hard to tell. The other tracks have almost no halfway sharp curves (at least not that they show). We need more video of the stadium racing and more video of tighter turns where they don't slow down too much.

Braking might be a little too powerful but it's hard to tell.

The game is also still in development so who knows how things will end up.

Come on, make this great!

From what I've seen it's more of an arcade than a simulator, not sure about the physics but it can be a fun game

I downloaded the demo but it has no support for a steering wheel, only keyboard control. It's very arcade so I deleted it.

It surprises me that you guys pass on a game just because you have to use a keyboard? makes no sense really... I have enjoyed many race games with just a keyboard.
Vette!, San Francisco Rush, Test Drive, Driver, NFS, NR2003 I played all them games with just a keyboard, and I had a lot of fun! why such the hate with a measly kb? lol

From what I hear the full version has wheel support. Trying to steer, accelerate, brake, and shift up and down with a keyboard is too much for me.

I have this for Xbox One, it does have wheel support. Is it sim, no, but it is a good time if you liked the older Dirt titles or Sega Rally back in the day.
