Been playing this for a few days and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. Compared to the other capital letter racing games (SHiFT, GRiD, etc) it feels pretty good. As everyone has said, there's not enough focus on proper point-to-point rallying, but most of the events are alright. And the RWD rally cars don't feel twitchy enough, but that's a minor issue.
And for anyone interested, here's what I got as my prize:
I would trade the shoes for a G25 or the Fanatec wheel though. Might even be tempted with a plain old DFP, because I really want to get back into playing LFS properly.
This thread has gone so far off-topic now. Dirt 2 is good. The cars feel weighty and behave more or less as you'd expect. The RWD ones probably not as twitchy as you'd think, but it's all good fun. Loving the open wheeler.
Cockpit view is a nightmare when you go through deep water. Love it
I played this game on the weekend. I did the Trailblazer world tour (spoiler ahead) to win the Dallenbach Single Seater hill climb thingy and a few online races.
The funny part was that I was doing a race in the 'Mali Alan pass' Croatian Rally track, and before the 1/4 mark, there is a tight corner that has a steep fall. I fell into it. TWICE. The 3rd time I went on that track, I had to go really slowly, which cost me alot of time. I hate that track now!
I love that one and the Utah one the trailblazer course. I have one things thats bothereing me for a long time i cant seem to find that sound track that says WHOO ooo i got your money!!! whats it called?
