Just played it again, I told myself it couldn't be as bad as I thought it was, and it is!

Its appalling, it doesn't feel like driving a rally car at all, its to twitchy. I actually struggle to slide round a corner, at all, because you have so much grip.

It doesn't drive right.. not at all.

Now see, this is how Forza 2 should have looked visually, and then maybe, just maybe I might have considered buying it. Unfortunately, Forza 2's visuals are almost Xbox 1 quality when compared to DIRT. Anyways, the DIRT demo is superb. From the graphics to the the gameplay, it delivers!

Wow there quite a few threads on this game.

This game was barely on my radar until the Demo was announced and now I'm really looking foward to it, handling, physics, graphics are all really good and after reading the preview about how varitey was going to be an important part of the game I can see it even in the Demo.

I still prefer Sega Rally though :p

I'm warming to it... slightly. Not enough. The gameplay still doesn't feel right. You'll be sliding round a corner, and suddenly your car will pick up traction when it shouldn't, and you'll go slamming into a wall, or a stone.

Theres also some FREAKILY strange things going on with the cliffside :/

Well after a good 15-20 races on each Dirt and Forza, I gotta say I'm just going to get dirt.

I only race for fun, and I only use a wheel for racing games. I just don't know enough about cars to really get into a few 100 hours of Forza. It's a shame though, there isn't a racing game I've played that compares to Forza when your using the wheel, it controls perfectly.

Dirt not so much, it's more like PGR3...I think those games try to incorporate drifting so much it *****s with the control on the wheel because it's much harder to keep the cars going straight and not fishtailing 80% of the track.

But in the end I like the rally aspect more with the jumps/rollovers/better damage. I spend 1/2 my time in any racing game ramming other cars on purpose, not really the point of Forza...or Dirt for that matter I gues, but DIRT is still just more fun in the end for me.

ha, I don't race online, I would be to far behind everybody to ram them! I would have to stop on the track and wait for people to lap me to enjoy myself...so I don't bother!
