DiRT Rally Greece first look gameplay: where is the sense of speed?

VVV: "Despite running on the previous EGO engine (the brand new EGO engine is being saved for F1 2015), Dirt Rally looks stunning on a powerful PC, delivering smooth performance, superb detail and a sense of scale to the stages that's often missing in rally games. Likewise, the audio is eceptional - on PC, the engine sounds are right up there with Project CARS and RaceRoom Racing Experience.

But there's a flaw that immediately stands out: where is the sense of speed? Hurtling at 100mph through narrow crests metres away from a cliff edge should be edge-of-your-seat exhilerating, but here it looks like a casual Sunday drive. The accuracy of the co-driver's pace notes are also called into question."

The story is too old to be commented.

Sense of speed is in the feel of terror trying to keep the car on the road. It might not look fast but it 'feels' fast.

Besides, you were going pretty slow.
