I LOVE the Dirt series, but this one shouldn't carry the title of "Dirt"

Summary: I was SO bummed when I started playing this game... I read the reviews and saw that people were saying that the maps were much shorter but I didn't want to believe them. Unfortunately... They were right. These maps are EXTREMELY short. Quite underwhelming. Ann Frankly, it just doesn't feel like "Dirt". Again, such a bummer...
Summary: Game is fun and challenging. I like that you tune your vehicles and some of the courses are challenging and a blast. I like the introduction of the freestyle stadium events however I am not much of a fan. I dont like that you have to podium on the freestyle events in order to advance... Would be more enjoyable to me if I had the choice to play them.
Summary: The handling of the cars seemed to have changed from Dirt2. The steering is a bit more sensitive and take a bit to adjust. I don't like gymkaka. There are series which require you to do gymkaka challenges to complete and some are pretty tough and boring. I prefer the rally aspect. The fun wears out fast compared to Dirt2 or Grid.
Summary: I've owned all the games in the "Dirt" series, and I'd say this one is an improvement in graphics and locations, but the inclusion of Gymkhana events, which must be won in order to continue play more than a few venues in career mode, was an awful idea. Not only do I have no interest in Gymkhana, but there's no way I will spend more time trying to learn how to drift a car across plywood sheets liad no top of shipping containers so as to be able to unlock the rest of my...
Summary: Dirt 2 is a good game. Originally got it for my sister's boyfriend for Christmas but I bought it a little late. Got a used one with no issues and played it a little. Graphics are very well and terrain. It is easy to play but over time does progress to get harder. I had a good time playing it, now to give the gift.
Summary: I use the Logitech Driving Force Pro Racing Wheel. I wanted to know does the game suport 900-degree wheel rotation (2.5 times around lock to lock) and so I asked Codemasters and this is what they wrote back. "Thank you for submitting your recent request to Codemasters Customer Services concerning DiRT 2. I'm afraid this is not officially supported. All we can suggest is to make sure your steering wheel is set up correctly and not to use the analog PS3 controller.
Summary: The gameplay and physics etc are really excellent - but the races are SO short. I find that more time is spent in menus and listening to recorded messages from your 'team' saying awful things like "COOL RACE BRO YOU SMASHED IT"... The Raleigh rounds are almost all under 1:30 and some can be completed in under 1m. Just when you are getting in to a session it ends. Highly annoying.
