Pretty much.

And to whoever is saying this game isn't good advertising (don't feel like going back and quoting) I will NEVER BUY A YARIS CAR IN MY FUCKING LIFE after playing Yaris, I despise Toyota because they made me suffer through 3 hours to get 185 gamerscore and only 1/5 of the cash I need for the 200.

I absolutely love Doritos now because there is a fun game that increased my GS by 200 out there based on Doritos, and I really do feel like eating Doritos now. The advertising definitely works, and as much as I don't like being advertised to, this game does it in a way that its target audience will listen to, and I know for a fact I listened to it.

Surely if you went to a car showroom and there is a Yaris and it's nicer than another option you was going to choose, you wouldn't go with the other option just because you couldn't get pety gamescore of an advertising scheme?

It's just a game at end of day.. who cares about the advertising side of it. It's just a bit of fun, I wouldn't go out and buy Doritos because I played the game nor would I think Yaris' are the best cars in the world because of the game, it's like any other advertising methods. :S

If I was about to buy a Yaris, now I would buy Doritos instead and walk.

Actually, I don't even know if we have Doritos in Norway...

But as a marketing tool, I would say this is great because of the shortness and the multiplayer to have this as a great party game. Because it's fun.

Lightbulb Innovative

It was very nice that it updated you when you received new achievements. Gears 2 hit this innovative idea too. Only if more games would do this. Every game needs an in game "War Journal" per se giving us the details we want.

I concur with all of the above posters! Dash of Destruction will go down in history as one of the best games of it's time! The idea of the game is truly ingenious. One only as intelligent and stunningly attractive as Mike would be able to come up with the masterpiece that is this game. The only thing that would improve Dash of Destruction would be online multiplayer. However, even the thought of such a thing starts my brain on the path of spontaneous combustion. It is simply too awesome of a thing to exist!

I love Doritos and have always thought of the Yaris as a bag of crap. Fill it with Doritos and you have a winning formula!

p.s. never played Yaris cos I am from UK

I felt a little bit bad for getting such an easy 200 gs, so next time I go out I'll make sure to buy a $0.99 bag of Doritos

Yeah, if i heard that a game revolved around doritos, i would probably be uninterested, but making it free with such easy achievements was brilliant.

I agree. The game's a great pick up and play game which you can burst through for about 20 minutes. The premise is simple and the developers execute that well. I wish all free games where this good.

Did anyone else forget that this was an advergame while they were playing it (until the end) or was that just me?
Nope, just you i guess
