DiRT Demo Review

The demo just came out, and GWN already has a full review to read while you download.

"Of course in this day of Forza and Gran Turismo, the real key in any racer that aims for realism is how the cars "feel." As fun as DIRT is, this is one area where I found it lacking. The Mitsubishi, Subaru, and the buggies don't seem to have a lot of difference in terms of handling and general driving experience.

Once you've tooled around in each for a couple of laps you get the feeling that they might as well be interchangeable. Handling itself is sublime as it has always been in Codemasters' racing games, but the cars (at least the three in the demo) all handle in the same sublime way."

The story is too old to be commented.

I was playing the demo this morning and on the first course at the same point on both laps it came up saying "reconnect controller" the controller is fine as it works with every other game but for some reason it turned itself off on both laps each time I played the course.
Weird huh, any ideas folks?

no idea mate, i dont see how the demo could even turn off your controller.... it worked fine on mine. although i didnt actually race lol i was going round backwards when i had the Subaru and i was crashing into walls and everything, very cool demo.

Colin McRae games have never been sims. They have always been about racing against time in serious arcade atmosphere :) Extremely fun and challenging, therefore they've always been VERY popular games. People may think ok too easy, I wish this was sim, but racing in Colin is all about how good time you get, compare it to world charts or with your friends, try to beat yourself etc.. fun fun fun and definitely not easy :). Forza 2 is good enough sim, I like my DiRT as it is now, INCREDIBLE!

Dl this last night and managed to play it this morning.
The graphics were stunning, game play was great and control was precise.

I didn't think the cars felt the same at all. I was talking to my roommate about how they all felt different and it was alot of fun. this is a really awkward statement. two are on dirt, one is on asphalt, it feels VERY different.
