Critic Reviews for Dakar 18
Dakar 18 is sadly a misjudged game that can feel refreshingly different to start with but ends up being incredibly frustrating, behind the pace and poorly implemented. With a focus on navigation and gruelling competition, refinement of crucial gameplay elements is sorely lacking. Some of the environments are truly epic, but the way the game fails to build upon them means they go to waste.
Dakar 18 manages to capture the essence of the test sublime, reaching a level of realism almost sickly, but fails in everything else. The fans of the test will know how to forgive these defects and they will find an adventure along 14 impressive stages, in which to suffer (and enjoy) like a true Dakar rider.

Dakar 18 has plenty of good ideas and has managed to capture what makes the interest of a rally raid like the Dakar. Unfortunately his deficient performance in terms of sensations is causing him great harm. This will only be bearable for true motorsport enthusiasts and this particular kind of event. The others will remain stucked on a rigid animation and a technical realization globally below the average.
