Because most game devs are old as shit now but still trying to be:Awful. It's The Crew 2, but with bicycles. Ubisoft's engine is far too heavy and cumbersome for this kind of game, I constantly felt like I was moving through tar. And, the mindblowingly annoying zoomer dialogue was just revolting beyond belief.
Why has Ubisoft decided to go down this XTREEM IN UR FACE LOL approach with this and that god awful hero shooter they are shitting out?
Also, if this doesn't have crossplay immediately it will be even more DOA.
It's no SSX3. That's for sure.
I didn’t like this game for the first few goes but I’m actually warming to it and may actually buy it.
Tried it on both consoles and the Xbox is currently on top due to the terrible screen tearing on PS5. PS5 really needs that VRR.
That’s how I felt too. I had been looking forward to this game for months so was really disappointed when I first tried it, but I gave it a few more tries and ended up really enjoying it. There are aspects about it that make me cringe but I just ignore all that nonsense and focus on the stuff I do like. The multiplayer races are just pure chaotic fun (although I will never enjoy flying through rings in any game) and I absolute love just putting on a podcast and picking a spot on the map to just explore.
I just really wish it wasn’t releasing quite so close to Forza Horizon 5.
Do you like the rings though? I feel like I am just chasing rings that are too close together. I barely even notice the mountain scenery because I am too fixated on trying to find the next ring (and not miss the next ring).I find the actual events appealing, don't care about the dialogue.

I played it and i did the mega race too after i was forced to sit through an hour of tutorials with the fakest ass corny voiceovers
Have you actually played it?
For the record I still haven't but will meme on you first and maybe agree with you later, maybe not.
Yeah , it is one of those games that you just jump in a play for a few hours a three or four times a year. I feel the same way you feel about the game. It is really just like the Crew 2.I've played a lot these last few days since the closed beta. It's a huge map but feels so small at the same because there's nothing to do in the world beyond fast travelling to events. You could technically just ride or fly around or something but without a goal it's just kinda a "move around in big map" simulator.
The mass races are fun at first but once you're good enough to actually compete for the top spots it's super frustrating due to the insane cluster fuck of hit boxes bouncing around off each other. You could be doing fine, cruising in a straight line and then just get randomly pushed off course due to some glitchy hit box bullshit.
Also, there isnt anything fun about the entire bottom half of the map, the desert section. The only Sport designed for that area is the mountain bike and its just kinda boring. The snow areas are also where the best Wingsuit mountains are so you basically have 1 half of the map where you can skii, snowboard, wingsuit and then an entire desert section that doesn't really have any big mountains so you you're only option is to be on a mountain bike, doesn't make sense.
What this game really needs is another 2 sports to use in the desert area, I think MTX and down hill longboarding would have been good choices.
Overall it's OK for a few hours but once you fly around the map a few times and do a few mass races you're kinda done IMHO. The beta was a good opportunity to basically see everything I wanted to see without paying a dime, thanks Ubisoft.
