Summary: My partner gave me this for Christmas, but I hadn't asked for it and I had my reservations after not enjoying Grid at all (and realizing it was the same company). I am so glad I gave it a try though. There is a bit of a learning curve (as with Grid, which perhaps I haven't given enough of a chance. If I ever get bored with Dirt, I might go back), but now I find this is the game I play almost every single day.
Summary: Graphics are beautiful, even distant objects are rendered very well. Locations are gorgeous and artistic with lush trees, sun flares, flying dust and even tire tracks. The flashback concept is very unique, where if you crash or swerve out of control, you can rewind the past 5-10 seconds to before you messed up.
