Dakar 18 2-min

Our score: 4/10

What we said:

“If you avoid using cars or quad bikes and play on Rookie difficulty, you might get some enjoyment out of Dakar 18. If not, you’re highly likely to find it a frustrating and soul-destroying experience that you wish you’d not paid money for. It has some good ideas and interesting features, but it doesn’t feel polished enough to impress. Basically, it feels like it needed more time in development. With more modes, tighter controls and more accessibility options, Dakar 18 could have been a really good game. But as it is, it’s both horrendous and decent depending on which vehicle type you choose to play with and on what difficulty.”
