I agree with everything you've said, couldn't have worded better myself.. Dirt is the Gran Turismo/Forza of Rally racing
I thought for sure i'd be down but I played the demo and I'm probably not gonna get Dirt 2 now...I miss real rally racing games, all i want to do is race in the WRC championship, do multistage rounds with car damage and some basic settings, and race for the season championship, it seems like this game just throws you in random races with objectives? I wish they still made games like WRC for ps2, that's my favorite rally racing game because it combines that real championship with fun handling. Do i have to bust out the ps2 or colin mcrae 2.0 anytime i want that kinda fun? Is there no current rally game (on either system) that combines fun driving physics with real rally championship modes?
But dirt 2 not having split screen made me nix thinking about it, same with Grid, I just can't get behind no split screen at all in a friggin racing game. Didn't like the weird menu systems either of moving around instead of just...a menu I can read. Shame cos the graphics were really pretty, but i can only play so many racing games with 'finish in 1st place to advance!' objectives, I kinda just like driving at my own pace trying to win the championship but still advancing even if i don't. Unrelated question, but how many rally modes are in turismo 5, if anyone knows? i tried looking up the wrc series but it's been out of the USA for years it seems. Gotta be something modern that scratches my itch, but it ain't Dirt 2 sadly. Still jelly of canadians as i'd bite at $3
Is mortal kombat worth $10? i assume that's what it'll be because less and it'd be instabuy and more and i wouldn't bother with digital.
