Summary: The pc version of the game does not work at all. It stopped working when windows marketplace shut down last year. So It was a complete waste of my money and when i contacted the seller about it not working they never responded back.
A racing game with no wheel support, unbelievable!!!!
6 April 2009
Conclusion: How a games publisher can launch a racing game in 2009 with no support for wheels (I use a G25) is beyond me. This game requires you to use either the keyboard or an Xbox 360 controller!!!! (why would I have a console controller AND buy a PC game!!!).
Conclusion: Having played quite a few racing games on the PC this has to be the worst I have ever tried to play. Unresponsive controls, very poor graphics and controls. Should we really expect this from games coming out nowadays? Awful.
Summary: Be patient with me as I have only played the demo - that was enough. I only tried the bike as that is my true passion. I was hoping that at last something would be as good as Superbike 2001, the last great bike game. Another failure goes on the rubbish pile.
Summary: Why do looks matter so much to Codemasters? Their recent racing games have all looked amazing, which is all well and good if you have a decent graphics card, but why screw up so badly every time on gameplay? Grid, Dirt 1 and 2 are good examples.
Summary: Hopelessly buggy (and not the kind of buggy you drive...). Frequent crashes, even after patching. And if you do happen to get it to play for a while, it has some really un-enjoyable racing - try a monster truck in a forest for a blood boiling experience.
A Driving Game with no wheel support!!. Poor, Poor, Poor

Summary: As others have said. Great graphics, interesting concept but a dreadful port of a game obviously designed for PC as a complete afterthought. How can a game designer 'forget' to add wheel support in this day and age. It smacks of a game rushed out to make sales rather than engage gamers.
Summary: When you get a new game there is excitement and anticipation. So when I got fuel in the post yesterday I was looking forward to it. I bought the game because it promised to be off-road racing at its best.
Summary: Brilliant Graphics and well up to codemasters standard. However, not a lot of good if you can not control the thing. I have three differant modes of input, Joystick, Wheel and a Wingman cordless but none work. Codemasters you lie when you say that the game is configured for many controllers.
Summary: OK, I've finished the game and the whole thing is pretty much a load of lies. The game was sold as a chance to race in some of the wildest weather on the planet. About 98% of the races are in normal weather, Dry, Wet, Snowy in places and that's pretty much the lot.
