The first Dirt title from Codemasters was met with mixed reactions from gamers. While the graphics, presentation and even career layout was very well put together, the driving mechanics were most peoples main issue.
Codemasters have actually been getting on quite a couple of old time fans nerves recently due to their attempt to make their games more accessible, achieved mostly by creating a driving mechanic that feels pretty much nothing like that of an actual car, but more like some sort of boat.
This trailer is the first showing of Dirt 2, and while it is looking impressive and fun, I can only hope that the cars get a solid feeling back so that the driving itself because it’s own fun, rather than the mere progression through the career mode.
What did you think of the first Dirt with regards to the driving physics? Good fun or boat racing deluxe? Leave a comment below and tell us all about it.
