    They're different games, pick the one you want to play. There are demos out for each of them.

    Argh!

    I played both demo's - they both look great, AND I was thinking about VT3 'cos I was reading that it supports 1080p as well.

    Too many games! Need mooore mooooooooooooney!!

    IMO Forza 2, didn't like the DiRT demo at all, but it all depends on what type of racer you like.

    Forza 2 is by far the better option IMHO.

    I would have got them both based on demo plays, but after buying forza 2 I would highly recommend it.

    i found dirt demo much more fun than the forza one, so i would say Dirt but ive heard the actual forza game is much better.

    I've tried both..it depends what you enjoy i suppose. Dirt I would say is lots of fun..forza a little more for the serious driver.

    Had to buy both ... there's an extra motivation for me though as my nephew tends to hog my PC if there's nothing new to play on the 360 ...

    I know I really need to save up and build him a rig similar to mine but I'm trying to hold off until I "need" to upgrade by which time he can have this one.
