    After playing the demo I am buying this one for sure
    It's a bit hard at the start but I have given it some time now and I love the way the cars handle
    Also one of the best looking games I have seen in ages

    something i like about Dirt 2 is there's plenty of camera view options. the 'hood vew' option (the one where all you see of your vehicle, is it's bonnet)works for me. it puts the player right in the action without obscuring your view.

    Well, I tried in Dirt 2 Demo if I could go for a one full race just pushing the throttle down and keeping it continuosly at 100%. It happened. (I tried again in hardcore, but there was not much difference)

    Dirt 1 had slight bits of realism with it, this one is full arcade, and there is nothing wrong with that. That's the way Codemasters have been going for a long time, sad for their old fans. I've heard.

    Pure Mongrel, it can still be a lot of fun, as it has multiplayer and it looks good. A lot of people will like it.

    I just personally like a bit more sim-oriented games, and of course I complain and whine as much as possible, when codemasters have taken this direction, but that does not make it a bad game at all.

    True. The more I read / see on this game the more impressed I am. Only thing is my games budget is blowing out big time.

    I went from Modern Warfare 2 and HALO 3: ODST to about 10 titles. :eek:




    Ahh who am I kidding? .............

    Quite a few good racing titles coming out... hard to pick. Dirt 2, Forza 3, SHIFT ... and rFactor2 for PC. Like you said PureM, our poor wallets.

    LOL.

    Actually I hit the jackpot with my wife (been married 16+ years now ... you don't get that for murder! :eek: ). She likes window shopping, but rarely buys anything ... especially for herself. For me to buy her a gift (or infact anything I think she needs) I have to spend a lot of energy convincing her its OK! :confused:

    To add to this, she never gets upset about me spending on my hobbies (My 4X4, home theater addiction and gaming) :D

    I don't drink, smoke or gamble and the only debt we have is the house which I am paying off quicker than I have to any way, so she figures if I work as hard as I do and we are in front there is no issue.

    Now you may be thinking that I have a subservient wife, but this is far from the truth. (In fact on a one on one fight, I reckon she would take me! The whole Brains over Brawn thing! :D ) She is a very dedicated career women and her win fall is that I do all the cooking and look after our son before and after school so she can focus on work and relax when she gets home. (That, and although she won't admit it ... she enjoys the benefits of a Home Theater addict :D)

    Exactly what I was thinking! ;) My wife is too so subservient, that she even goes to have a beer in a pub, instead of me, so I don't have to go there. ... oh wait...

    14+ years together here too.
