Another replay for Dirt 2

Another replay for Dirt 2

It seems that BlimBlim can't stop playing Colin McRae: Dirt 2 these days so here is a new video of the game. This time, he's taking us for a drive in Utah and we won't mention his reckless driving in the end because nobody wants to piss off a tyrant.

Screen tearing in replays as well as gameplay (more visible on PS3 than Xbox 360).

Could that be the TV it's being played on though?

the dust in the later portion of this footage looks pretty nice. but why was only the player-car kicking up dust?

Sorry I forgot to mention it, I thought it'd be clear when seeing the X, O, square and triangle buttons. It's the PS3 version, just like our other videos of the retail version of the game. :)

TVs don't create tearing. Ever.

the demo made it feel even twitchier than the first, and ive heard that point to point races are severely lacking. sucks because it does look nice and i had high hopes for this one.

After playing much of the game from renting it, I can say the game is a true example of style over substance. The gameplay and race selections are very shallow and not much better from the first Dirt.

The game is fun as something to kill time with, but the great graphics obviously come at the cost of screen tearing, poor frame rates, and physics that don't have much at all under the hood.

Looks like I'll be waiting for the PC version then, before seeing if I'll buy it :/

After hitting lv 23 in sp i grew bored as hell. It feels like playing same tracks all over again, hearing same quotes during the race all over again etc etc.Something very important went missing in this game. Fail.

Why on earth are people still complaining about the in-race dialogue? Go into the options menu and TURN IT OFF!!!!!!!!!

To all the haters in the house — I'm super sorry you guy's aren't having any fun with it, 'cause DiRT 2 is pretty awesome. Regarding point to point, there are actually more of them in DiRT 2 than the first as the Raid event is now p2p rather than on a closed circuit.

Part of me wishes that there was more of a focus on pure, technical, rally, but there's so much content that's just plain fun, it'd be foolish to dwell on it too much.

I have it, but play about 30 min and turn it off. DIRT2 is so acade. So screaming stupid punk music, so many idiotic tolkers. I want just shut them up and let me play. Thats not a rally game but american stupid stunt show. Hate that.

Then turn off the music and the voices in the option menu. -_-
