The embargo around DiRT is finally lifted, so it's with great pleasure that I release these three videos I recorded last week. You'll discover quite a lot of environments and a few game modes in there, and no doubt the majority will agree that this is a great looking game even if there is a lot of tearing and slowdowns in some modes.
As for the gameplay, I guess you all tried the demo so you already know how strange the handling can be at times. DIRT sometimes feels like a simulation, sometimes like an arcade game and sometimes like a big "WTF is going on?", very difficult to describe. Also worth mentioning are the incredibly long loadings between each race (thankfully only a couple of seconds for a restart), made slightly more acceptable by the excellent and very slick looking menu interface.
A game I can only recommend if you actually managed to get around the strange handling in the demo. Then you are in for an excellent single player experience.
@Tiz: Aye it's a gimmick but it kinda worked pretty well with the right games ;) (43 minutes ago)
But 98% of my Kinect usage is directions and pausing films and apps. (2 Hours ago)
@aphex187: Kinect is still fun for a joke, mostly because it is a joke. A gimmicky peripheral that kind of suits Friday night madness. I have had my fair share of fun with it when relatives are around (2 Hours ago)
Cheers guys, think i'll leave i then. It was only a thought for friday night drunken antics ;) (2 Hours ago)
@aphex187: It's useless to me. I haven't used it since launch week. (3 Hours ago)
@aphex187: Really Kinect is a glorified microphone. Super useful for when you don't want to cave dive the UI. For game, I think there is Kinect Sports. (4 Hours ago)
Thinking of getting a Kinect for the One but i take it the library of games is pretty sparse right? I already have one for the 360 and was thinking is there any point in getting one for the One? (5 Hours ago)
