Rallycross Simulator

Gasp! That's not... no, surely... it's not the dread 'Sim'-word again... is it? Ah, but it is, and our old chum David Darling's pretty damn excited about it. Honest, independent comment from the old fraud? You bet. "An exhilerating (sic), realistic simulation!" he burbles. "Rally Cross is great fun" Coulkd he finally be running out of absurdly over-the-top cirtical comment to slap all over his product? It's a marvellous though, but while we ponder on that, what of the game?

Yes, Rally Cross Simulator is a CodeMasters game of the old school, in that it's almost exactly like Grand Prix Simulator, which of course sold four billion copies. Who can blame everyone at CM for wanting another bite at the cherry? Not me, so I shall simply say that if you liked Grand Prix Simulator - and millions did - and you don't mind playing the same game all over again (with slightly larger circuits), then Rally Cross Simulator's a must-buy. For me, though, it's a must-throw-out-of-the-window. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
