Gravel is an off-road racing game in which you drive a wide range of vehicles over both open landscapes and tracks around the world. This rally game combines classic cars and realistic locations with arcade-style physics and gameplay for fast-paced racing action.
Get down in the dirt
Gravel's races fall into four disciplines or categories: Cross Country, Stadium Circuit, Speed Cross, and Wild Rush. You can play these either in free race mode or in a single-player career mode that sees you striving for rally stardom. There's also an online multiplayer mode. Gravel is a racing game, not a driving simulator, but it does have a number of elements that will satisfy sim fans. Tracks deform as you drive, developing ruts that can slow you down or even cause you to crash on later laps. You also have access to a range of customisation options that will let you adjust your car's performance.
Get behind the wheel
If you enjoy rally games, Gravel is worth checking out. In trying to strike a balance between action and realism, it may go too far in either direction for some fans, but it's a solid offering with a lot of content and variety.
