    Am a bit disappointed. No new areas really. These are existing roads in the game reskinned as rally courses, with added debris and difference surfaces.

    The stages are much too fast for the most part and many of the supposed square corners can be taken flat out.

    How long are the stages on average? Are we talking modern day 2-4mins or the more tense 6-10mins of the RBR era?

    Wow, I am really liking this ... 4000 for the 'season pass' is too much considering I have no interest in the car packs they release every month so, I downloaded the add-on for 1600 instead.

    The plus points:

    + Fast!
    + The transition from off-road to tarmac is handled superbly; you can tell the difference immediately.
    + Oh, those jumps ... some of them goes on forever! Was the kind of thing missing from the main game.
    + ... really fast!
    + Although the scenery blurs by at speed, the frame rate is thankfully consistently rock solid.
    + Nice to be a little bit removed from the Horizon Festival thingummy ... and you now have a co-driver who tells you the directions - no more looking at the map from time to time.
    + How fast again?!
    + Night time racing is brilliant ... : )

    The niggly-wiggly points:

    - Some routes are re-used too often and sticking long grass, rocks and trees upon a road that is already in Horizon is a tiny little bit lazy if you ask me.
    - No free roaming ... boo-hoo.
    - Maybe an Outpost Challenge style event for each race/ticket would have ruffled things up a little bit alongside the Rivals event?
    - For some, five rally cars is plenty, but for others maybe not.
    - Not enough night time racing ... : (

    I don't think "fast" is necessarily a positive point about the rally pack. There are hardly any points where one has to brake properly. Even many of the square turns can be taken flat out.

    Well ... I like it!

    I do agree that those sharp u-turn corners are easy to cock-up at speed and still get off quite lightly however, on hard difficulty, doing that can easily drop your time/position on the race so, I take the corners carefully.

    To me it feels like RalliSport Challenge on steroids and maybe that's why I enjoy it so much.

    just picked this up yesterday, and really enjoyed it in the hour or two I played last night.

    The cheesy theme somehow works, even though it shouldn't and the graphics are certainly amongst the best I've seen on the 360.

    If whoever runs the EGMR car club could let me in, that would be great!

    I totally called it.

    Sssoooooo, the season pass is a hefty 4000 MSP ... other than car pack every month until next Autumn, will there be any other add-ons or expansions like the recent Rally offering?

    ... : S

    What they're trying to say is 'Welcome to the club' in their own unique way.

    Really enjoying this. Rally DLC is harder than I thought it would be. Like a cross between Colin McRae and Sega Rally.

    I'm finding it very hard. I'm practically flying along and still placing very badly. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. It is sucking the fun out of it for me.

    @smoothpete what level do you have the AI at? im using what ever the hardest level is and i can't place 1st in any of the sessions without spending a good hour trying each segment, although i have top 150 times set on them. turned down to hard i think it was and came first from start to finish.

    oh, are you drifting through corners? this slows you down alot, most of the 90 degree corners can be taken nearon full pelt in class B and A, hairpins are really the only place you need to slow.
    Manual gears make life alot easier also.

    Thanks for the heads up, I completely missed this news when it was announced.

    I'm slightly disapointed you haven't included the Team Pink Milk Mugen Civic 3D in the pack though. One of the finest racing teams of 2012.
