MotorHead has to be classed as one of a new breed of PC motor racing games - the game looks great, the cars drive like you wouldn't believe, but best of all it's goodbye to the (ultimately) boring, predictable PC opponents. The AI of the 'computer' cars is fantastic - no two races are ever the same, and even when you've made the top of the first division you'll keep coming back for more...
In Ultim@te Race, the key to the game was power-sliding 'round everything - in MotorHead, the key is getting the feel of your car, and racing the hell out of the tracks as you learn them. I haven't had so much fun with a game for absolutely ages ... believe me, this is one addictive racer !
The Direct3D demo is now available - I've not tried it, but from what I hear it really is just a taster (one track only ?) so it's a "try-before-you-buy".
