Critic Reviews for Gravel

IGN

5.9 / 10.0

Gravel is a game displaced. It's a competent and occasionally pretty pick-up-and-play arcade racing game at its core, but it has the whiff of a game released in the wrong era – a scent it just can't shake. A 2018 rendition of '90s ambition. Gravel certainly channels the spirit and straightforward simplicity of Milestone's own 1997 arcade off-roader Screamer Rally but it has no unique hook for today's audience; no over-the-top arcade pizazz that folks will still be discussing 10 or 15 years down the track. It's functional and fun enough in small bursts, but arcade racers have come a long way over the past two decades and Gravel doesn't bring any new ideas to the paddock.

Gravel's arcade sensibilities conjure occasional moments of flat out fun, but unimaginative track design and a lack of depth means most races are just dull.

New arcade racers have been few and far between over the last half decade, and Gravel is just one attempt to reignite the genre. There's some good racing to be found here, with plenty of licensed cars to take through some lovely scenery, but it doesn't get your heart pounding with excitement. Gravel might be a fairly decent racer, but its biggest sin is that, despite the fireworks and exotic locations, it's just a bit boring.

With its simple gameplay, Gravel can win the hearts of all fans of arcade driving. However, its proposal is exhausted after a few hours when the main game mode "Off-Road Masters" ends due to the lack of enough unlocks to keep the game alive.

Milestone's Gravel rocks! A solid arcade driving game which features mainly off-road races with a convincing sense of speed and a good variety of competitions, vehicles and tracks. Too bad for the thin longevity of its campaign and the complete lack of alternative single-player modes, which greatly reduce Gravel's specific weight.

Despite one or two cruel difficulty spikes, Gravel is one of the better examples of off-road racing in a while. Its mix of semi-realism and over-the-top arcade style makes for some exciting races, while its progression system keeps it accessible to almost anyone.

If you like fun racing games, especially ones that never try to be too serious, Gravel will scratch your itch. The driving part of it is consistently enjoyable.

Milestone's latest is a fun romp through a variety of off-road locations, offering both quantity and variety in terms of tracks, cards, and modes. It's not the most ambitious racer ever, but the non-serious style of the flagship Off-Road Masters mode will be very appealing to those wanting an enjoyable arcade experience.
