Slightly Mad is aban­don­ing the tra­di­tional rac­ing game pro­gres­sion in favour of of­fer­ing ev­ery­thing from the off. Events, ve­hi­cles and tracks don’t need to be un­locked, and you can choose to tackle the events in any or­der, even spe­cial­is­ing in a sin­gle dis­ci­pline if that’s your pref­er­ence. Af­ter so many restarts over the years, driv­ing game fans should find the ap­proach lib­er­at­ing, es­pe­cially given the num­ber of tracks and cars avail­able. It’s a re­laxed stand­point that demon­strates con­fi­dence in play­ers, both in terms of their skill and abil­ity to set their own pace, and one echoed in-game by fea­tures such as the abil­ity to jump the starter lights if you’re too ea­ger with the ac­cel­er­a­tor.
