Sarge, I can understand some reduction in brake force when brand new, but I just can’t see my brakes not locking the wheels! Cindy Simpson Mackay, Idaho…

For a game covering a niche subject, it looks to have some gorgeous graphics, and with big-name manufacturers’ buggies and quads being drivable it should appeal to real-life UTV enthusiasts. This could really become the first modern example of a great game for such people to enjoy.…
