If you're used to playing games with excellent car handling controls you can forget this game.

Summary: The cars control totally screwy. Forget how you drive in Need For Speed's Most Wanted 2012 because these cars have a mind of their own and I just played a few times and gave up. I don't feel like learning a new type of driving skill associated with bad programming and bad vehicle control. I played it for the first week and never touched it again.
Summary: I'm amazed by the graphics and quality of the game, especially considering it's only ~$15! The only drawbacks are that the intermediate level is a bit too hard, and the easy level is way too easy. But it is very customizable, and a lot of fun. In fact, the game makes me wish that we could have an in-home motion simulator -- as just driving the cars with an inexpensive Thrustmaster Ferrari GT Experience wheel (also inexpensive), we still feel like we can feel the jumps...
Summary: Dirt 2 by Codemasters is by far the one of the best off-road racing games ever created! I've had a hobby of simulation car racing since about 1995 when the Daytona 500 games started coming out. Played most of the need for speed series, EA racing games etc... I first got introduced to Codemasters when I had my Playstation 2 and played a colin McRae racing game published by Codemasters. I'm addicted to most of the gaming software they come out with.
Summary: Havent played this game in forever and decided to order it since im shifting towards PC gaming. Plays great and had no trouble with installation other than needing to install Games for Windows Live before it finally worked. All in all best racing game ever made.
Summary: Still learning to navigate around and will be a "beginner" for a long time, but thoroughly enjoy the single races at this point. Will try a speed wheel since the keyboard arrows are just too difficult to get fine-tuned steering, but that's not a game issue. The graphics are stunning. The nighttime race is very cool.
