THE PERSONAL TOUCH
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.
