The game does a great job of making the player feel claustrophobic, both because of the in-car camera and the narrow trails with sheetmetal-shredding obstacles on each side. Like “Dirt,” you’ll have to get proficient at listening to the navigator call out instructions at speed, but it’s not as hard as you might think. The directions are displayed at the top of the screen, and once you hear “left 3” you’ll be waiting for it. Once it’s passed, it disappears, replaced by the next bit of info.
