From the screenshots, you can tell 4x4 Dream Race is not the most modern game. A game has managed to get onto steam that looks like the N64 version of Hotwheels Racing, but with worse graphics. While this game may just seem like babbies first homemade game, googling 4x4 Dream Race's past brings up something much more sinister.

The first few results for this game brings up free downloads for it. So you might be thinking, "Wow MFC Recruiter John, so it's just a free game dumped on Steam as a cash grab?". Well friend, it gets even worse.

This is no ordinary quick free game made by new devs, this title was made to spread adware. When you google this title and it only shows free donwnloads as information for it, you'll see that every single website to download from makes you install their "downloader" under the guise of "4x4_dream_racing.exe" or a similar named exe.

From a known website: "4x4 Dream Race is a video game distributed through the INSERTADWAREFREEGAMEWEBSITEHERE'S installer. This installer will also modify the user's web browser home pages and default search provider to SAMEWEBSITE'S in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. While the game itself is valid, uninstalling it will not restore the web settings."

So you have to wonder, how does stuff like this past through the filter? Is there even a filter?

Many will be surprised, but I don't hate this game. I know nothing of it's history, or how evil the company is or anything, and I judge it only by the gameplay I've played so far, which has only been a few minutes. So far, it's... well, read on.

The game makes no sense really. I couldn't even figure out how to beat the tutorials, which never seemed to give me a winstate, or give any information on how to play. There is a "Help" section, but this just tells you that you use the arrow keys to move and shift to go 2 fast 2 furious. You can't rebind this, but that's the least of the games problems.

The game is ugly, which you could probably already tell, though it's semi colourful and everythings easy enough too see, so I can't complain. I enjoy the visuals personally, but I'm the kind of person who enjoys jagged edges and would prefer games to be made to look like ps2 games rather than crysis or whatever. As for music, I hope you enjoy the one song it comes with! You probably won't though, it's terrible. It sounds like someone made it in a few minutes using samples from a music making program. Good thing you can mute it! (Watch the trailer to hear it)

As for the gameplay, I've only played a few minutes, but it's decently enjoyable driving around and racing. The car feels quite difficult to control sometimes, but in more of what I would describe a fun way, rather then an annoying way. It turns really quickly and has good traction, like a remote control car. The AI is pretty much impossible to beat. They are always using turbo and can follow the road perfectly. So, yeah, you can't really win at all, or even see your opponents most of the time. The neat thing is, the game has a decent sense of motion. You feel like you're going fast (if you use turbo). I like driving games, but I'm awful at them, mainly because I can't drift worth a damn. Well, that doesn't exist here. There is no drifting. There's only a turbo button, which as mentioned, makes you go Sanic speed. The game is pretty much broken though, considering how impossible it is to control the car with any sense of being precise, and have the AI is incredible.

There really is nothing to this game. I've played for such a short time and really have experienced everything the game has to offer. To be honest, after reading another review of this game, I got scared it might be removed off steam and decided to buy it right away, as it still looked interesting to me, and it sort of is. I like this game, but I know perfectly well it's awful, and not worth the money in the slightest. It's ugly, it's only got 1 terrible piece of music, you basically can't win, and there's nothing substantial to it. I really wish steam allowed a middle thumbs option here, because while it is fun in it's own way, it really is terrible, and only 1% of the people who play it will get any enjoyment from this game.

Oh, and it doesn't have any sort of multiplayer at all, so, you know, 97% of the driving game audience gone right there.

I want to throw my two cents into the ring.

Let me start off about some good things about the game:
*Great OST. Could listen to it for hours on repeat.
*Awesome NPCS. The latest in modern NPC technology in racing games today by far.
*Customizable trucks! Great designes and decals.
*Hours and hours of gameplay.

And some of the bad...
*It doesn't cost more! Seriously, this game should be considered AAA, atleast being worth $35.00. Pick this gem up while its on sale, folks.

Though this game has good soundtrack, i would not recommend to waste your time playing it. Graphics sucks, gameplay doesn't interest player at all. Spare your nerves and just pass through.
Overall Rating: 3.0/10.0

I like this game, but I cannot recomend it. This game's intended audience is a small number of people. Its for those who like games where you cant win. Its for people who like games that look like they were made in 1990. Its for people who like perfect AI that cannot lose a race and follow the track instantly, while you are constantly flying off the track, Its for those who like single player racing games. Its for those who like only 1 track to race on, so they can constantly practice that one track. Its for those who hate option menus, and like when the game decides the options for them. Its for people who enjoy repetitive music that is a 4 second track that is on a constant loop. It is for those who appreciate the lack of story and just want gameplay. Its for people who like niche games and want to be cool. Its for those who want to play a game with a nonexistant community. Its for people who like only one vehicle to choose from. Its for those that want an experience of a lifetime. Its for those who want to waste a little money for a bug filled but fun game. Its for those who buy bad games for the heck of it. If you qualify for all of those requirements, you should buy 4x4 racing. If you buy it, buckle up, because you are in for a hell of a time!
