it's nothing like the previous Dirt games, they were pure arcade. this is sim-cade, somewhere between DriveClub and iRacing/rFactor.

AI are super hard. This is about as good as I can drive (mainly because I dont know how to setup a car) and with one mistake I came second.

That looks awesome Sarge. Not bad steering there either....how many times have you fired it off a cliff? Does it have rally stages from all over the world, different surfaces etc? I think I read somewhere that only Africa or Egypt were included? Are they charging extra for different countries as they get developed/released?

They have different surfaces, light medium heavy gravel, tarmac, ice aand snow.  They added rally cross and hillmclimb  but only half a dozen countries so far.  All additions are coming in free to the game. 


edit: oh, and they just added 2 new cars. 2000 series. WRX and Ford Fiesta

Thinking I might go pick this up on PS4.
Have read this is a pretty sweet car game - 8.9 IGN, 85 metacritic.

Now I have a wheel running, this could be sweet. Supposedly pretty good for controller folks also - for when i can't be bothered setting it up :P

OK, so this game is great, but not really my cup of tea.
Probably put 10hrs into it already, but most of that has been dragging it over the line.
It is fun but it is most definitely unforgiving. A small mistake can see you into a tree or off the cliff and blow a tyre.
It's the game that's made me realise I'm more of an arcade racer than something so technical. I did have a few races where I had a few clean sections and even finished a few on top (but never the event, something always came unstuck). I took the co drivers "be brave" to mean punch it to many times haha.

It's been fun but I think I might try off load it for $20-30 loss and still be happy with the experience
