Gamescom: Dirt 2 menus trailer

Gamescom: Dirt 2 menus trailer

Codemasters released this trailer showcasing the front end interface of Dirt 2. Yes, a trailer for a glorified menu. And it actually makes sense.

This is just like Toca 2. No big shakes, but I really liked the menu system in Dirt, far more swizzy, shame they had to change it.

Otherwise menus and I like them!

I agree with the first poster, I think the menus in the first Dirt had a more "swizzy" look LOL. But it's only menus so who really cares. I'm still hoping for a better track variety than the trailers have so far indicated.

I hope the irritating tit of a DJ can be turned off.

Or run over.

Repeatedly.

very pretty, but it will be annoying having to go though all those transition animations before I can select option that I want...

Cool menu, but the neon green text really has to be changed to .... idk, black or silver.

Oh I dunno, that DJ Crash or something from the EA BIG label was pretty darn annoying as well!

EA style annoying DJ confirmed

gotta say, i prefer the sleak interface of the first game to this EXTREME *devil horns* skater style approach, just looks cluttered and messy.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (3 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (5 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (6 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (7 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Light and shadows, as well as sound, play a massive role in the design of the game. I'm confident it'll be a return to form. (9 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: True. I still havent got over how scare the RE7 demo was... crickey! (10 minutes ago)
