Summary: Better rallying than the DIRT series. I don't like arcade type presentations.The car performs well. Graphics are ok but I am not bothered what the scenery looks like. Game does allow outlandish short cuts without consequences ! A lot of reverse run stages are a little boring. Setting up the car is laborious and makes very little difference. I only use the extreme values of settings. The old Codemaster designed rallying games are for me, still the best.
Summary: Obviously, I have recently purchased this game hence me writing here. After purchasing the game, I went on the internet to see what was being said about the game and also to look for any guides or useful info and I came across a couple of reviews from well known game sites. I have to say I was quite shocked, as the game reviews seemed to be quite negative about the game.
Summary: After playing Dirt 3 this game is a welcome return to pure Rally. The graphics aren't quite to Forza 4 levels but the game is still very playable! There's a great mix of single career basis Rallies and there's plenty of Challenges in the Multiplayer piece. Recommended. Enjoy!

Summary: I have always been a fan of the Codemasters rally games from the early Colin Mcrae series but over time, they seemed to have moved away from traditional rallying with the DIRT series. The different diciplines are great fun and a nice change from the traditional rally stages however I think there was not enough of the traditional type stages and cars. It was almost trying to cater for all types of people rather that specialising in one.
No it is not Dirt 3, but it is a better RALLY game

Summary: No, It is no Dirt. But for me, Dirt has become all about eye candy, and has evolved in Dirt3, into pure arcade rubish. The original Dirt was great. I completed it a number of times, on various difficulties. Even then, I would have prefered Dirt to have been a pure WRC style experience. Its americanization had already begun. For me, the graphics in the original Dirt were almost photo realistic, colours and lighting creating a very realistic atmosphere.
Summary: Having played nearly every rally game since the PS1 was born including Mobil 1, V rally, Colin McRae, Richard Burns, WRC (PS2) and Rallisport Challenge, its fair to say I've seen the best and worst. Other than Dirt, which I never brought as the series seemed to have detracted from true rallying, there has been a drought for some time, and that is why I purchased WRC 1 last year.
Summary: firstly, ill start with what has been improved/introduced: Super Special Stages and Group B have been introduced and are fun The car handling is solid this year so your car isnt sliding everywhere like it did on WRC 2010 And another thing that ahs been improved is the Rally Academy as it is a good way to introduce novices to the sport.
Conclusion: The demo provided on Xbox Live Marketplace is completely misleading from the handling aspect of the driving (to be fair probably the most important too). The demo makes the cars seem slow to react to the player's input and rather "floaty".
