Summary: Terrible interface with no mouse support. Crippling Games for Windows LIVE requirements that punish people that bought the game. Unskippable movies. I could only change settings once I was in a race. Total waste of money. This game ruins my day whenever I give playing it another try.
Summary: Well, here I am cursing Codemasters yet again. Dirt 2 released and I bought it day one, but never was able to get it to run. Yes, I had above the Reccomended Specs. I spent 14+ hours trying things to get it to run! So, here I am 2 hours after loading Dirt 3 and once again it looks like it is going to be a "no go" yet again? Yes, I have the hardware to run it! Core i7, dual GPU's, fast hard drive, 12gb RAM.
Summary: I purchased the Dirt2 program and could not get it to run. After corresponding with the software company they told me that this program would not even load without 3 ghz computer speed. The info is on the box lable but in a color that is almost unreadable. Look at your computer speed before purchase! I'll hold on to the program and pull it out again when I purchase a faster desktop.
Summary: I'm a PC gamer and enjoyed DiRT 1 thoroughly, so naturally I expected something good in DiRT 2. I was so completely wrong it's really unbelievable. First, you need to know that you must have a open Internet connection and a Windows LIVE account to play. Without it, you can't save any progress in the game which renders the entire thing pointless since you must start over on every session. Second, the whole atmosphere of the game appeals only to the imbecile gamer.
Summary: The developers made the screen jerk around while it loads. Most people wouldn't notice, for those with motion sickness its unbearable. I don't know if the races are any good for those without motion sickness. For anyone with it, just stay away.
Summary: Very disappointing! .... Despite asking for help from Codemasters, I still can't get any further help to make my Logitech Wingman Formula Force steering wheel (with Win XP) work with Dirt 2. It only wants to work with the keyboard as a controller, for some reason ..... I'm sure the game would be great, but for this issue, as I had the original Coin McRae Rally back in the day, which was brilliant!
Summary: The loading screen shifts around, like your on a rocky boat. For anyone with motion sickness that makes it unusable. I don't know how good the racing is as its difficult to enjoy something when you feel sick. It is a shame that the developers would ruin the game for a lot of users with a feature that the rest won't even notice. I do know if anyone has any kind of motion sickness to just stay away.
