    I'm bored of Dirt, it was a poor companion to Grid, not sure how it got so many sequels.

    Where's Grid 2?

    There is nothing wrong with Dirts gameplay, but it's just getting too silly now. I want my Collin McRae days back from the Playstation!

    True, true. Dirt3 definitely plays "better" than Dirt2, but to be honest all that US-style posing (gymkana for example) puts me off. Pretty sure I've played Driver:SF a heck of a lot more than Dirt3, even though I got them both around the same time.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    *Conventional GRiD 2 comment here*

    I agree with DannyM. Stuntman had its day, just stick to the rallying. If they try and take DiRT in the same/more serious direction that would be fine with me, as Showdown's companion, but if they replaced it completely it would be bad.

    Time for Dice to make Rallisport 3, no?

    Re: Previews - DiRT Showdown - rally racing gets aggressive

    if you are looking for a serious rally game challenge try richard burns rally, available on budget labels now. If you search theres also a fan based edit/update for it.

    graphics of course a bit dated and its got a rather steep learning/adapting curve from cmr2/4 but if you persevere you will be rewarded with one of the best hard core rallying sims about.
    Its not a pick up and play arcader, stick with cmr/dirt/grid if thats your preference!

    I miss V-Rally, that was a legendary game! Haha might have to give Richard Burns Rally a go though I do like a challenge looking forward to DiRT showdown, bit different.

    Re: Previews - DiRT Showdown - rally racing gets aggressive

    Destruction derby was the first game I got for my playstation cost me £55 and kept me and my friends ammused for hours. Seems like this one could be a bit of a hoot but wont bother until its in the bargain bins.
