Summary: I played this game when it first came out, now I'm playing the PC version with GFX settings maxed out, it looks fantastic and using an Xbox controller an receiver, the controls are great. This game is a classic, will be hard to beat if they make a Dirt 4, I haven't played Dirt3, heard it's worse than Dirt2, tons of complaints. Highly suggest playing if you missed this one.
Summary: If you have a really good wheel then this game is the best! Once you learn how to use the emergency brake to initiate a drift you really get into this game. You can also set up the car to have more forward brake bias to help start a drift. Anyway, the different tracks and vehicles are fun. I always though I would like roadcourse games best, but you don't feel much wheel tension. This game lets you feel it all the time. Love this game!
Good racing game, terrible Windows Live requirement
11 May 2013
Summary: Overall this is a well done racing racing game, with very good graphics for its time period. My family has has enjoyed playing it a great deal. I personally think a steering wheel controller is almost a necessity for this game, but an x box type controller would probably work. The keyboard would be almost impossible, and not very fun. The "windows live" system detract greatly, since you must log in and be online.
Summary: This is the best game ever, this is a full blown racing sim, real damage, car adjustment and awesome soundtrack. I even found myself watching rally car races on TV because of this game. Don't be fool and think that it sucks because its a couple years old, it still kicks butt. Dirt 3 is way lame, buy this.
Summary: Once again, like F1 2011, the interface on this game is way more immersive than the D3 version -- Why they do that, huh huh? In many ways way more fun to drive than D3. Not as many cars as D3, but some real fine action here. Makes we wanna halla!!!
