Feature: Hard right to my heart

The Joy of Phil Mills in Dirt Rally 2.0

If there’s anything that can bring a dose of certainty to a dark night in the Polish countryside, it’s that voice. “Flat left over jump, extra extra long keep middle 170,” it says as we speed by trees and hedgerows and fields and barns. I can’t see the world outside the glare of my headlights, but that voice knows everything. “Into six right, opens over…

Feature: "Obey zee rulez"

Have You Played… Prisoner Of War?

Absurdly bad German accents. That’s what happened in this game. Prisoner Of War was a stealthy third-person adventure game about breaking out of a POW camp during World War 2. Except every time you broke out of camp, the German army simply caught you and put you in a bigger, worser camp. Eventually, you end up in Colditz, which is like Hogwarts but with Nazis.

Dirt Rally is free for keepsies right now

You love cars? You love mud? Your twin desires combine in Dirt Rally, the 2015 Codemasters race 'em up which is currently free for keepsies on the Humble Store. They launched their 'End Of Summer Sale' today and are slinging keys around (Steam, not car) to tempt you into taking a look. Codies did launch Dirt Rally 2 earlier this year but that one's £45,…

F1 2019 running in the shadows

"Damn your love!" shout Codemasters. "Damn your lies!" And with that, F1 2019 is go, the latest video game adaptation of Fleetwood Mac's song The Chain. The frustrations, burdens, and dependencies of the human heart are transmuted into a metaphorical automobile, which we must drive at great speed through the straights and chicanes of life, listening to the wind blow while surrounded by rivals and…

Grid returning to the starting grid with Grid

Codemasters will whip the dust sheet off their Grid racing series in September with a new game named simply Grid (technically, 2008's series-starting game known commonly as Grid was Race Driver: Grid). It's been five years since, Grid: Autosport, the last game in their multidisciplinary racing series. If you want to go parp parp now, hey, 2013's Grid 2 is free for keepsies on Steam…

F1 2019 getting off to an earlier start

Because reasons, Codemasters tend to release their Formula One games near the end of the racing season they're simulating, which is weird. Wouldn't it be better if motorheads could themselves play through all the tracks ahead of their Grand Prix? Or maybe even race alongside it, listening to the actual team's racing radio? Wearing a full fireproof racing suit in their house? Shouting for their…

Semi-classic racer Grid 2 is free for keepsies

Codemasters' 2013 racer Grid 2 is a fairly geriatric entry in the car-wot-goes-fast pantheon - so old that RPS's prior coverage of it was written by the impossibly ancient likes of Rossignol, J. and Smith, A. - but we sure did like it back then. I've just been back in and, yeah, it still looks and feels dang good for a non-car-gonk like me. Its…

Dirt Rally 2 splatting into February 2019

Mud! Mud! Glorious mud! Nothing quite like it for cooling the petrol. Always happy to wallow in the hollow, Dirt developers Codemasters today confirmed a return to the sim-ish side of their mucky racing series, announcing Dirt Rally 2 for launch in February 2019. Or 'DiRT Rally 2.0', if you're the daft gits in charge of naming these things. Here, come watch the announcement trailer…

Studio behind Onrush hit by layoffs before PC launch

Codemasters have laid off a large number of people from their studio behind rough 'n' tumble racer Onrush, the team formerly known as Evolution, according to a Eurogamer report. A PC version of Onrush was due to follow after June's console launch, but its fate is unclear given the big changes at the studio. The scale of the damage isn't public yet but Eurogamer's sources…
