    So does it get any better?

    And do the racing segments ever get to be anything other than "hold down a button". It seems rather simplistic in terms of gameplay.

    Have you not played a Trials game before? They get insanely hard. And are basically motorcycle puzzle games. I don't know about this particular example, as I have not played it, and it seems like it was made to have fun with the ridiculous premise.

    No, I have not. Nor have I ever really heard of them. Turns out spending 345 hours on xcom EU/EW (the last 145 or so just on Long War) means I don't get out much...

    Edit: After doing some googling, this helped explain a bit how it changes later:

    Don't worry, I watched a few more of earlier games. I think the video is still representative in that you're not just driving but driving "strategically". If that makes sense.
