FORMAT PS4 / ETA SEP / PUB BIGBEN DEV KYLOTONN RACING GAMES
The buggies of this racing revival caught our eye this month. V-Rally 4, the returning racing series which was popular on the original PlayStation, features all the bells and whistles expected of a modern racer, including bouncy, lightweight karts. Leaning just close enough to ‘arcade’ to be more accessible than Codemasters’ Dirt 4, but with enough sim fine-tuning to keep fans happy, V-Rally 4 could be a surprise hit. Back to those buggies: they’re so much fun it feels like we’ll be picking sand from our teeth for weeks.
