Destruction Derby 2
When I was a kid I loved Destruction Derby 1 & 2 on the original Playstation. I've heard Showdown isn't as good as the other Dirt games.

That being said, my question is this: how is the destruction derby aspect? Is it fun? How is the damage modeling?

Try the demo out. On that note when i tried the demo i felt the destruction derby aspect felt very far off when compared to even the old Destruction Derby of playstation or the Flat Out series minus Flat Out 3. The problem with the demo is they give u slow vehicles to drive so maybe the feel is different when using high speed vehicles. Hopefully someone with the full game will chime in since i have been intereested in Dirt Showdown but the demo turned me off it.

Hah yes, I loved Destruction Derby on my Playstation. Pretty much the only reason I'm considering this game is because I want something close to what DD was.

In dirt showdown, there's only 8 cars on track in a race/derby.
The destruction derby games had 20 cars running on track.
Even the demolition derby in Grid had more cars.

This game lacks the chaos the destruction derby games provided.

aw, well I guess I'm not surprised. Heck, just reading this thread makes me think I'll fire up an emulator and try DD again instead.

Having a slow car in a derby can be dangerous cuz u need to build up speed/force. with a faster care this is easier to do. so yes dont judge the game by the demo. personally its one of the best games ive purchased this season.
I would reccommend it, and it also looks amazzing with 3D vision :D
its funny that thier are other like me also just dying for a good old destruction derby game like DD 1 & 2. glad im not the only one...

Cool man, thanks for the input. I'll keep it in mind. I think I missed the sale at this point. heh.
