DiRT Showdown Looks to Bring Demolition Derby Back to the Mainstream

Bringing back Demolition Derby with damage modelling worse than Destruction Derby on the PS1 and Burnout Paradise?

Have you seen the gameplay vids of this game? The damage modelling isn't what you'd expect in a Demolition Derby game. Yes BP is an arcade racer but you can literally crush your entire car in that game, something you'd expect from a Destruction Derby type game.

From what I saw of Showdown bumpers fall off and you get a bit of deformation here and there but the car still looks intact.

That's not what I call demolition derby.

Its a Demolition Racer where you get points by damaging other cars and those points get multiplied by what position you end up on the finish line.
