I just discovered DDG a couple of months ago, thanks to the new DS "Revival!", on a recent visit to Japan.
I have carefully completed all training levels to "gold", and was STILL unable to unlock the final training section, so I am systematically completing each mission, going further "back in time" as I continue. It's a slow task for me, as I often don't have time to complete the longer tasks, and it gets put away for a couple of weeks. I'll keep this discussion informed as I hopefully progress.
I do have a question to ADD to this discussion: from what I understand, previous versions of DDG are considerably more strict than "Revival". How much more so, and does anyone find this version to be TOO easy?
Nothing in the game feels as if I'm going to lose (at least on the more modern equipment), as simply matching speeds at intermediate checkpoints and stopping within 10m keeps me overstocked with time to complete a mission. I end up watching the checkpoint speeds and the distance countdown rather than the scenery. I think I can turn them off in the HUD, but as a beginner, I am not *quite* ready for that yet. I was hoping there would be a greater challenge beyond this type of self-imposed limitation.
Everyone here seems quite experienced with the series, so I'm looking for a bit of perspective. How have you played in the past versions, and how do you challenge yourself with "Revival"?
