Why DiRT 3 is one of the most deadly addictive things we've played this year

GamesRadar: I'm 40 minutes into a Gymkhana session - you know, the discipline of motorsport that sees you showing off in increasingly mind-blowing displays of driving finesse.

Damn man, I love DiRT but I hate all these previews. I know that good ol' rallying is back and covers about 60% of the game, but what about the rallytracks, especially HOW LONG are they? Is it again a quick 2-3 minutes max like in DiRT 2, and 1 or 2 stages per location, or do we get to do some proper rallying?

Check out VVV Gamer on YouTube, he has a pre release copy and is putting footage up, so far looks like it's just 2 minute stages.

Apparently the first career race has two stages of Finland, so expect multiple tracks per location.

I love DiRT and Grid. Codemasters (and Criterion) are the masters of arcade racers these days.
