    Dirt Rally

    Same here. And even if a league feature isn't implemented in the game, we'll just make a dedicated Online thread to setup our own cross-platform rallies

    Group C it is! They're wonderful cars, very powerful yet surprisingly well manageable. I still have my Mazda 787b waiting to go out again Will be around from 8PM, please shoot me a message when you're up for racing so I can add you to the party.

    1. You can create any rally(cross) event in free play and play by yourself or invite others. No direct cross platform multi but you will see cross-platform leaderboards (though lots of 'DiRT Player' names which make me think PSN / Xbox Live / Steam usernames aren't compatible here). Hope they add custom league support like in DiRT Rally 1 too! 2. PS4 Pro, game runs fine though general graphical quality isn't as impressive as GT or Forza. Still some nice effects though and 60 fps framerate seems solid. 3. Still a bare bones campaign, though there are two now so to day (proper hard one in career mode, another less complex one in free play). Some nice real life rally footage to introduce each class of cars but little more. I'm fine with it as they've definitely focused on physics. 4. There is a Time Trial mode so I guess your answer is yes

    In essence, I think so. It works for me as they are generally good stages. Plus the effects of day/night and mostly rain (including serious puddles) help mix things up. The stage generator in DiRT 4 was sadly flawed as it ended up producing far to similar looking stages - not enough 'modular building blocks', I guess. Would still love to see it return in an improved form at some point in the future. Infinitely randomized stages could work well to keep the rally experience true and fresh. That's my gripe with leaderboards in a game like this: people practicing stages over and over, learning the corners and ultimately setting the fastest times - which completely goed against the philosophy of rallying!

    I'm not getting involved in a VR debate again here but this game is very much well worth a play at the very least for the amazingly retooled handling - so much speed, control, feedback and challenge It does feel a tad light on countries and stages, mostly because 4 out of 5 rally's are mostly gravel - no snow just yet. As DLC updates Monte, Sweden and Germany have been announced. Though these are just refreshed versions of the original DiRT Rally routes so don't expect too much new here.

    Australia is amazing hilly farmland which turns into a proper mudbath when rained on, New Zealand is sort of the same both coastal. Poland is a really cool mix between gravel and tarmac on flat planes, whereas New England (USA) is a Autumn-y forest with cool elevations. Spain is completely bonkers with all-tarmac roads, many long stretches moving into fast corners that suddenly can turn extra sharp and bite you - an amazing challenge!

    I'll have to try to pull myself away from DiRT Rally 2.0 tonight but all up for more forum racing in GT Sport Haven't gotten around to setting up a new series yet - this will be no sooner than early March (as I'm away for F1 testing next week). How about some general good races again tonight? Maybe do a Gr. 2 of even Gr. 1 race too!

    Dirt Rally

    So the review embargo on DiRT Rally 2.0 has just lifted, you'll see the first scores come in today. Confident of Codies to let reviews out so relatively early before release. I have spent around 20 hours with the game so far and absolutely love it. Handling's much refined, notably on tarmac too. Great feedback on grip levels, which makes driving RWD cars much more fun than before. Also, cars feel much quicker and engaging to drive. Even the Alpine A110 is now a proper rally monster - not to mention the Group B beasts! My only possible gripe could be if Codemasters add microtransactions between now and public release. The career mode can get quite expensive on in-game money, with purchasing/repairing/upgrading cars and the whole personal thing. Performing well will earn you decent money but I can't help but shake the feeling the publisher may want to cash in on the fairly steep prices by letting you use real money... Fingers crossed they don't!

    Indeed it was! That semi-endurance Gr. 3 race was as exciting as our championship rounds - including me being quick of the line and wasting a chance at victory by overdriving as seriously focussed @Beezer had already passed me Actually, I enjoyed the Nissan 350Z races even more - SO much fun powering 'm through the tighter turns of Alsace and Brands Hatch GP

    I'd say we just get some great racing going, starting off with those 350Z's. Then we'll do various race cars (including Gr. 3's of course) and try out some things for a series

    Yes! Tonight at 8:00 PM UK time Be there. We'll race Nissans 350Z around Alsace and do some other cool races. It's about time we stepped up again!

    How about we resume GT Sport forum racing tomorrow (Monday) night then? I'll be on at 8PM UK time. Get practicing in that Nissan 350Z (Fairlady Z) around Alsace, y'all!
