This looks like fun, but is it like Gran Turismo where it's so "realistic" that you just bump into a wall going 150 MPH or careen off a cliff and it just goes "GAME OVER YEAAAAAAAAH" and puts you back to the checkpoint? I'd like a game where I can see if my rallly car can swim too.
The earlier ones had invisible walls 5ft on either side of the track and felt arcade-y, not sure if they changed that.

Richard Burns Rally is still the benchmark for realistic physics and your car tumbling end-over-end if you screwed up.

It's goddamn amazing, the first racing game I've played where I've been compelled to use the in-car camera. on the other hand, it's clearly made for the enthusiast: I had to restart the first snow track about 15 times over a few different sessions before I came to grip with exactly how to take turns in the snow with a rwd lancia stratos. not for everyone but man.

Kerbal is just goofy fun, though a bit technical. Not sure it really compares this kind of aspergian-level thing that's going on here.

Some of the other videos of this game are downright terrifying. Even more so when rain or snow is involved.

Samir, please, you are breaking the car.
Ahh.. they just gave me Dirt 3 and some kind of other titled Dirt that comes after 3 but isnt this... Showdown, that's the name.

Too bad it's on the 360.. my 60 inch tv is just gathering dust except when I stick my USB drive in it to watch movies.
It looks like Codemasters finally made a proper sequel to the original DIRT from 2007, the one that was just straight-up old school rally racing without the X Games branding or gymkhana that the series moved to after Colin McRae's tragic death in a helicopter crash.

I understand that there is an audience for the X Games/gymkhana style of rally, but I'm glad Codemasters spun that aspect of the franchise into DIRT SHOWDOWN. DIRT 3 was a little closer to the first DIRT than was DIRT 2, but it still forced you to do gymkhana to proceed, and, sorry, while gymkhana with rally cars makes for fun Youtube videos, I find it really tedious to play in videogame form.

I'd buy DIRT RALLY if I had a current console or a PC capable of playing modern games at a decent framerate, but, since I don't (and that's not changing anytime soon), I'll have to settle for watching Youtube videos of it.
