    I purchased the game after a delicious discount at steam. I have read several reviews about Dirt, almost all very positive. I was expecting maybe too much but I found driving far too easy. You can basicly just let the car go flat out, ditches and rocks beside the road do not matter at all. How arcade can you go? How does this differ from the gas station coin game? Better graphics that is true and cars and scenery look fine. Richard Burns and Rally Trophy! Do I still have the discs...

    I've heard it mentioned that DR is nothing compared to RBR in terms of realism. I wouldn't know since I never really got on with RBR so never took the time to get any good with it. But Codemasters games generally aren't ultra-realistic simulations anyway. They tend to have enough realism and immersion to feel authentic to the general fan base, but are simplified enough that noobs and casuals are able to have fun with them too. Perhaps bare that in mind next time you buy a CM game, so that your expectations aren't too high.

    Yep. Drove Colin McRae 3(?) way back and what I recall it felt quite the same. But no big loss, its beautiful and for the price I paid it´ll give some fun.

    You're not driving flat out if you think the ditches and rocks beside the road 'don't matter'

    I would expect to hit a stone or bump or something if cut.

    Well in my version of Dirt Rally I do just that. Trees, rocks, sign posts and ditches all end my run with ease. Maybe if you turned damage on in the options it might help.:rolleyes:

    For offline gameplay, one can always install RFPE mod for more challenging driving experience and RBR-style damage modelling (more radical actually, with suspension and tyre damage being a factor, unlike in RBR).

    Thanks for the RFPE-mod hint.

    Agree! That RFPE mod will give you a hard time finishing the rally.
