Is it just me, or does it seem like every single track can be found in the previous games? They seem to be identical, except for the time of day or weather conditions.

Asking the full price for that seems rather silly. I am starting to think they are really just going for money (F1 was not supposed to be an annual franchise either).

use of the name dirt could have a similar outcry like those that hate the new ridge racer, its just excessive use of the word, im pretty sure Colin McRae would have seriously objected to using the "dirt" branding, im fairly sure codemasters could have used "grid" as the title for it as the only relevance to idrt is the name and rally like stages other than that thats it.

im sure it will be fun for 5 minuits but after that will it become a bore fest of 1 race here and 1 race there and thats it, codemasters seriously needs to show a lot more than this if they want this to sell, just hope its not just a spin off of dirt 3 as thats quite a good game.

so.. this is a full price release? seeing as rally races is the most fun part of Dirt games for me, i guess this isnt made for me

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (2 Hours ago)
