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

    alimokrane Or have I misunderstood something? (2 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: Yes but this is the controller, the only one supplied with the console. Meaning to charge it, you have to attach it to the display AND have it docked - not even a cable??? (3 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Hmm, stuff costs money to produce, I suppose. (6 minutes ago)

    Melmoth heh, just a week from release. i imagined it was still far off. Timed exclusive VR support for PS4 though. Maybe pick it up late then. (33 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Each area of the plantation you explore has a "boss" family member that stalks you throughout, sort of like Nemesis, and they all have their individual traits. (54 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Melmoth: Yeah, that appears to be the setting from the demo, but I've read some moderate spoilers, and it's definitely in tune to what the original game was, design and theme wise, with new elements (56 minutes ago)
