Description official descriptions
1NSANE is an off-road racing game specially designed for multiplayer play. It's the first game to support Codemasters' multiplayer network where players can challenge each other for a game and gain points for a global ranking.
The game has unique game modes never seen before in a racing game, like capture the flag, return the flag and destruction zone.
The game doesn't have fixed damage models for the cars. Instead, each crash and collision dynamically deforms your car, depending on the point of impact and force. The damage will also affect the cars handling and top speed etc.

This game has great gameplay-I could play it for a good few hours, and then come back to it again in a few minutes. The graphics are pretty good, and the different places offer a good variety. Lots of fun cars too.
I would have liked a non-network multiplayer game (ie split-screen) and the computer AI could be better.
The Bottom Line
As a fun racing game, it's better than micro-machines, but isn't quite as realistic as Colin Mcrae (nor as challenging).

I love this game for the multiplayer aspects. I can sit down on my local network with a bunch of friends on game night and play this. Realistic race sims don't work as well because not everyone is hard core, or has the patience to learn to play those games well, but this game can be played by ANYONE and have fun doing it.
Some driver issues. Particularly troublesome getting the joystick to work. If you install too many maps and/or cars (www.insaneheat.com), you run out of memory in the game (not on your PC). This is just poor programming and should be fixed.
The Bottom Line
Good graphics with great, easy multiplayer fun.

First of all: this is not a simulation. This game will have no appeal to those people looking for a realistic driving experience. However, if you're looking for a fun action game to play with your colleagues when you got 10 minutes left over on your lunchbreak, this is the one.
Through the use of a wealth of game modes and a broad range of vehicles (from buggies to heave trucks) this game has a lot of replay value. You will be coming back to the game again and again.
The single player experience might be a little "thin", only buy this game if you have cheap access to Internet.
The Bottom Line
Don't expect a simulation, do expect a lot of action-packed racing and crashing .

Insane is the first game to support the Codemasters' Multiplayer Network (CMN) for online play.
1NSANE was based on a demo game, Terep 2, made by Dénes Nagymáthé.
