Verdict: Raising the bar for rally games.
What is it?
Gravel is an off-road racing video game developed by Milestone and published by Square Enix. Kick up some dust, be a Gravel Channel star and beat the Masters around the world in the most extreme and spectacular competition ever. Explore exotic locations, drive iconic vehicles in extreme conditions, defy the champions and become the ultimate Off-Road Master.
The game revolves around competing in a racing television programme called Off-Road Masters. Each player must earn stars to move on to the next challenge. Part of its charm comes from the fact that it liberally borrows a few ideas from the popular arcade racers of yore, rather than trying to be an ultra-realistic sim which frustrates as much as excites. Unfortunately, no local split-screen multiplayer automatically reduces the value of the game.
Unleashing the full power of Unreal Engine 4, Gravel bestows each location with an unprecedented level of detail and makes the competition fun for everyone: photorealistic graphics, dynamic time of day and weather system, accessible physics that can be enjoyed by everybody, breath-taking locations where the player can race at full speed rushing through forests, snowy mountains, dunes, deserts, impressive lighting and particle effects.
