Having said that Nostalgia is very much similar to those games, if you are a fan of those titles then chances are you'll really like Nostalgia, likewise if you didn't care for either of those games then Nostalgia will have a tough time sparking any interests for you.
Racing in the off road is exhilarating and adrenaline-pumping. It's like man being one with nature on big, dirty wheels. In terms of the arctic outdoors, that's a whole other topic.
