    The bottom line is that I play games to have fun. While I found the handling and tracks fun, I have no desire to play a game whose difficulty curve turns it into a second job because it demands near-perfection from the outset. Chances are, if this game is for you, you've already bought it.

    If you like rally and you like sim-like racers, this game is actually quite good. The physics are fairly good: decently realistic, never too frustrating, and quite rewarding when you get it right. It's fun to go from tarmac to gravel and "feel" the difference. I wish it had longer stages and more of them, but whatever. I got Dirt 3 and this at the same time and I'm spending much more time on this. You can sit down, spend 35 minutes and do an entire rally of 7 stages, which is pretty enjoyable. Full Review »

    Just picked this up and was suprised after middling reviews. Much Purer rally than Dirt and the handling is good. Tough for new players? Maybe but I guess that what practise is for. It's not a bad game because it presents a challenge. Full Review »

    Totally AWFUL.

    Just bought this game and the car engine sounds don't work in game, even once the patch is installed. Cars feel slow and
    pants, really disappointing. DIRT3 is utterly superior. Full Review »
