CRC 2005: Cross Racing Championship 2005 (2005)
Drive a handful of vehicles on tarmac, snow, gravel, mud and through streams on your way to achieving the full prestige of being Cross Racing Champion.
Despite an obtuse career mode (the aim is to complete races on lower difficulty to earn upgrades and championship points so you can unlock and win every race available on the hardest difficulty, earning 100% “Prestige” to complete the game; but it’s not obvious), this is one of the greatest racing games ever available on PC. It’s looks and sounds fantastic and the cockpit view is the best I’ve ever used. It’s immersive, convincing and, miraculously, you can see out of the windscreen. You’d be astonished at how many racing games have a cockpit view that you can’t see out of. The handling is responsive, convincing and simply thrilling to feel. The England track, in particular, is breath-taking at every corner in every car on every lap.
