Summary: So far, I have noticed a lot of copy and paste from DiRT 3 to this one. The "free roam" area is the exact same from the previous DiRT. Only played it for an hour, and I'm already kinda disapointed...
Summary: I think because this is a UK version of the game, the VIP code supplied doesn't work for my Canadian account (no bonus car, no online play). The shipping time also longer than I thought, and actually the game was shipping from Hungary?. The game is still playable offline without the code. That's OK for me since I only play offline.
Summary: The game is a bit of a step back sadly IMO.. The banger cars seemed like it would be good fun, but really the tracks are rather boring.. I played it for a bit but then tried the older Dirt 3 I had installed from a while back and found that to be much more fun.. Not sure why really.. But yer for the price its not bad.. But just don't be expecting a cool new version as its sadly a let down..
Summary: I mainly purchased this because it was a very good price, and I have Dirt 2 already. The controls and set up were familiar, and the gameplay easy enough to grasp, although some stages could do with more explaination, as my young son found them a bit more tricky to understand. Overall a great game for the younger gamer, but maybe a bit too simplistic for older players.
Summary: So Dirt's gone all gnarly and trashy eh? Well according to an interview I read Codemasters has decided to split the series in half and leave the hoonigan style car wiggling and general motor based tomfoolery to the "Showdown" camp thus letting the core Dirt series deal with the proper meat and veg of rally driving. So how has it worked out?
