It may have suffered the same ill-effects as the on-road version. Your view is either too far away, making the car too small to judge speed, angle, distance, etc... OR, you were too close and couldn't see far enough ahead on the track. I imagine it would be exaggerated by off road, since you need to be able to "Fly" the car over jumps and make corrections in the air. Also, the company that produced it made it almost impossible to resell, or buy a used copy. So once you bought it, you were stuck with it, and that can KILL any game-like software's staying power.

If it does finally come out, then you'll need a 60 inch or larger display to play it. A 32 inch LCD tv is too small.

I was disappointed with Virtual RC. Granted, it probably doesn't have the budget that Real Flight G4 does, but I thought that Virtual RC could have been better in other places, such as sounds, the sounds really let me down

I will be checking out the new version though.
