DiRT Showdown

DiRT Showdown

Worst racing game ever
Terrible.. Boring... Waste of my life. Forget the money I want the time I wasted downloading and playing this game back.. This game has officially turned the Colin McRae series into a runny diarreha running down the leg of of some business idiots who put profits before gameplay.

It's a great game. You just suck.

great game? great? you have very low standards.
On the contrary, I use a gaming wheel and three monitor setup and I can tell you that only DiRT Showdown works well with a higher end setup like this one. Dirt 3 is just a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ game that you may enjoy using a keyboard in party modes. Other than that, it's as dumb as a racing game can get.

I make no claims on Dirt 3, I got it in the Megapak but haven't played it. I have slow d/l speed and so I figured I'd go with the newest in the franchise. And I am not saying that showdown isn't pretty. I just didn't find it fun at all.
My beef with Showdown is that it was too 1 dimensional. The cool party-type setup would be fun as a multiplayer option in addition to a more well-round rally/ racing game. But as a standalone game? That is just pure money-making nonsense.
Your set up sounds nice. Have you tried new Grid yet? I really want a great racing game like the Forza series for xbox.

Tywin, I think your three monitors is distracting you from the ♥♥♥♥ that showdown is... It's a testiment to Codemaster's commitent to sell you less each realease... No more a simulation, it's as good as Pole Position...

Well, I got if for free with my video card purchase. No, it's awesome. You're in control of the car which is quite a departure from the silliness of DiRT 3.

I'll be getting GRID 2 next week. US$29 at ozgameshop.

This game is bad. Not just because the physics and mechanics suck, but because of the AI. I only payed 5$ for a code of it on Ebay so I'm not too mad about it.
LOL. The mechanics of Showdown are the first ones in DiRT to actually work well with a wheel. Are you kidding? If you want slip n slide, go play DiRT 3 or 2.

If you are referring to the 58 minutes I gave to this game. It was all I could stomach.

If you are referring to how long it took to d/l this game... well, if it had been an hour I wouldn't have minded as much.. But I live on an island in a remote location and it took about 4 days to download. At which time my inet was almost useless which makes streaming movies.. also known as porn.. painfully slow.

But if more companies actually followed that motto, there would be much better games coming out then the same old slop. This game has made me embrace indie games MUCH more. It seems if you want quality gameplay over "pretty" AAA games you have no choice. Case in point.. the Bioshock Infinite. Beautiful but boring and zero replayability IMHO. Of course this is all a matter of one's taste. I keep getting disappointed by the big game devs and more often impressed by what 1 or 2 guys can create on a tiny budget. Of course, I am not seeing any indie racing games because it DOES boil down to physics and graphics for those games. Thus my choice to purchase this one.

But back to the original point. I played every Colin McRae game since the beginning and loved them all. I miss them and wish Codemasters hadn't sold out to N. American interests in skillless smash-em-ups juiced up on energy-drink-tweaked commercial advertisements, turning their back on the most exciting and skilled driving in the world... Rally racing. If I wanted to play Xgames I would. I use to look to Codemasters for an experience that was for REAL racing fans.. not some 14 year olds who can't even drive yet.

would love Manual Trans and Head Cam. And would love it if that Christian dude (or whatever his name is) would ♥♥♥♥ off.
