GWN editor Richard Manley has shared his thoughts on the new DiRT demo:
"I hope they fix the physics of the game before release, or this will be yet another disappointing Colin McRae title.
I've played the DiRT demo on the Xbox 360, and I have to tell you guys I think it's pretty god damn awful. The physics in the Colin McRae series have been going down hill since Colin Mcrae 2, which actually sold really well. Driving the rally cars in DiRT feels more like you're driving a boat. The physics are very floaty. The turn-in feels wrong, the steering is not progressive enough, and the vehicles can come to a complete stop surprisingly quickly, even on a loose gravel surface.
The designers of the game claim it has a new, ultra-realistic physics system, but I just don't feel it. I believe Codemasters should have spent more time on the physics of the driving model, even if it was at the expense of the pretty graphics."
