    Did they improve the handling on tarmac?

    Almost all the reviews I've read and video I have seen look excellent. I'm glad I pre-ordered the deluxe edition at a good price and can't wait to try the game for myself. Certainly looks like a superb rallying experience once again.

    Seems to be a slightly improved Dirt Rally 1. A bit more "car weight" and a bit better FFB but basically just what DR 1 would have been if they would've continued development.
    So no wonders to expect but also no catastrophe :p

    "Official game of the FIA World Rallycross Championship" We need all the cars and places to justify that title.

    Wish they'd make the road a bit bumpier, especially the tarmac.

    For a moment there I thought you meant a Subaru WRX license and nearly wet my pants (could I finally drive my Bugeye in a video game?!)... And then realised it was for World Rally Cross :roflmao:

    Did I see New Zealand as a location on the IGN review?

    Being as most manufacturer teams pulled out of the WRX championship (Volkswagon, Audi, Peugot), this championship is going to die quickly. Manufacturers want electric WRX. Oh joy.

    Having watched quite a few videos now, it actually looks pretty good on tarmac and a vast improvement over the ropey DR1 tarmac handling. Of course actually getting behind the wheel is the proof of the pudding, but so far, it looks very promising to me.

    The Bugeyed version doesn't seem to be in it, but the '95 Impreza and the WRX STI NR4 are in.

    In that article by Jimmy Broadbent, his closing words are:

    "It’s an experience that, finally, takes virtual rallying forward several steps from RBR."


    Quite bold statement. Jimmy was really impressed in his video too. But, later in his stream he said the tarmac handling still isn't great. Such a shame. But seems it still might be worth buying.

    Deluxe edition (which includes future DLC) is 34% off at cdkeys.com (€48.99)

    He also noted that damage, even in the "hardcore" setting, is still extremely forgiving (especially when compared to RBR).

    It`s kinda weird reading Jimmy praising the game about how it forces him to drive realistically, and yet watching his streams or his Group B video, it`s not the impression I would get from them :unsure:

    I really want this game to be good. But I am terribly split on what I see, and I sadly still remember the disappointment that was Dirt 4, which the devs claimed will be Dirt Rally, but better. So yeah, being quite cautious and reserved this time around.

    Add to it all the horrible modern game publishing practices like game unlocked earlier for people willing to pay more (and of course also for VIP streamers/YouTubers), recycled content announced as DLC before the game is even released and stuff like that...

    Please don`t suck, DR 2 :cautious:

    Cheaper in here https://www.cdkeys.com/pc/games/dirt-rally-2-0-deluxe-edition-steam-pc

    To my knowledge cdkeys isn't a shady site like Kinguin or G2A, because they don't allow users to sell keys. They just buy keys from countries where Steam prices are lower (Steam has regional pricing, to accommodate countries with low wages) and resell them
