THE PER­SONAL TOUCH

EDGE - - PLAY -

Al­though the ve­hi­cle ros­ter stands at just 12, cus­tomi­sa­tion op­tions for them are al­most in­ex­haustible. Loot boxes drop new skins, voice lines, badges and driver mot­tos. The lat­ter, along with the oc­ca­sional load­ing-screen mes­sage, are the only places where Code­mas­ters’ char­ac­ter emerges, via de­scrip­tors such as ‘pa­tiently sup­port­ive’ or ‘un­err­ingly of­fen­sive’. The dis­em­bod­ied voice lines of each ve­hi­cle at­tempt to do the same, but never re­ally ad­here to the ac­tion, and feel more like sound­boards for unloved car­toons.
