    Hopefully they learned from the mess they made of the last Flashpoint and won't release this one pre-Alpha quality!

    Beat me to it!

    Still waiting for a proper sequel to OFP. Flashpoint 2 and the ArmA games have all been massive disappointments.

    I hope they take the next version of Dirt back to a more Colin McRae Rally type game, whilst certain elements of Dirt 2 were great, all that going around in circles at Battersea Power Station was tedious, along with all the American voices etc

    Looking at the trailer, more of the same. Starts off with me thinking mabee they've done a bit less for the American teenager. But the trailer gets worse.

    Dirt 2 was a blast but it was removed from my system after 2 weeks.....

    Not to worry though, WRC out later this year.

    3 games i would rather were not made into a sequel to be honest

    Colin McRae Rally 1 was one of my favourites TBH, with the latest games they seem to have followed the trend of other games and concentrated only on graphics, forgetting about everything else until last minute and made it stupidly simple and arcadey. Forza is one of the only current racing games I like, it's a proper sim aimed at people who like and know something about cars; most other games you start it up, spam continue for a bit then hold down accelerate and remember to turn occasionally...

    Try something like Race Pro for a bit then go back to Forza.. you'll be putting Forza into the 'graphics only - simple and arcadey' category..

    More rally sounds awesome. I loved GRID was an unusual type of racing game but I loved it. Flaspoint doesnt excite me tbh.

    Re: News - Codies get to work on sequels to Dirt, Grid and Operation Flashpoint

    So long as OpF is being developed concomitantly on consoles and PC we will see another lacklustre product. Put simply, you do not put War Simulators on the console, it's simply too complex and in Dragon Rising we saw the compromises they made so that it attracted to the typical shooter gamer but the end result is that it didn't satisfy anyone. The very fact that after sale support was pulled so soon shows just how poorly it sold.

    To be fair, it would've lasted longer had they bothered to give PC gamers the typical dedicated server capability.

    So long as they keep Gate Crasher in DiRT3 I'll be happy . I loved that race mode in DiRT 2!

    We need a wider range of cars and tracks and better physics too. More FWD cars specifically, like the 1.6L category.

    They should sack a third of them and make a game called GRiT instead. Nobody would notice the difference.

    Sounds like you want WRC, which will be out much sooner

    Oh yeah, totally forgot about WRC. Anyone got any idea when that's gonna be out? Not heard anything about that game in quite some time actually, did an article in April but nothing since.

    Late September, early October. Play.com has PC version as end of September with the console version as early October. More than likely they'll all be released together.

    Sounds good too.

    I really miss the old Lombard RAC rally with the various car upgrades and that treacherous fog
