Gravel 

 

It warms my soul that Family Friendly Gaming purchased a copy of Gravel on the Xbox One. It is a shame the Marketing & PR people for this game failed us. Family Friendly Gaming has taken a courageous stand against the swamp of corruption in the video game industry that needs to be drained. That is bound to hurt us with those alligators in the swamp trying to maintain their power.

Gravel has some loose controls. This can be used to your favor spinning around all those U-turns. The loading time is long in Gravel. Graphically Gravel looks amazing. I loved seeing the different places. We race on the beach, through caves, in the mud and more. We level up and unlock new vehicles in Gravel. This racing game can be challenging. More to come on that in just a second.

There are multiple difficulty settings in Gravel. I could always win in Very Easy mode. I would win or get second in Easy mode. I would get smoked in Medium mode in Gravel. I did not try any of the harder difficulty settings. Gravel is set for more of the hard side. One mistake and you could lose a race. The computer controlled racers will knock you around and spin you out.

I ran into glitches while playing Gravel. Too much of the content is hidden behind a pay gate. Who does that? First off Gravel is an average racer at best, and there is all this content hidden behind a pay gate. Lame on so many levels Milestone. The presentation in Gravel is pretty good. I felt like a lot of Gravel copied the Forza Horizon franchise. Gravel does not have a massive world to race around though.

I found the music in Gravel to be obnoxious. It annoyed me to no end while I raced this dirty racing game. The modes in Gravel are Off-Road Masters, Free Race, Xbox Live, Time Attack, Weekly Challenges, and DLC. I had some high expectations for Gravel. Sadly this muddy racing game let me down. I like the tracks, and got used to the controls. Gravel does not feel off road enough for me. It feels like a small Forza Horizon clone that misses the mark thanks to no open world racing.
