I have purchased this game as it indeed looks amazing. I shall have to wait to play it unfortunately as my new Xbone arrived faulty and wouldn't switch on for more them 5 seconds before the power supply switched itself off.


Do I have you on my friends list? I'm TheXboxVision if not.


I now have a working Xbone. Will add you.


Are you the ScenicCheetah? If so, added! Now we're special friends!


No. That's the account I used to download Dirt Rally. Sorry! Must have still been logged in to that. Sent another FR. My GT is Nirbanana.

I should get this. Is £16 a fair price?

It's really good fun (especially in VR), but it's not exactly a hardcore sim (I'd say more 75% sim, 25% arcade). Depends what you're looking for.

That sounds perfect. I've been looking for a new Rally game. Richard Burns Rally is good, but it's old and you have to hack it to get it working properly in Windows 10. I reckon I'll stump up the cash.

I snagged this on a Steam special offer earlier today, £12.

Quite bastard hard innit? Any kind of damage inflicted on your car pretty much knacks you for that stage, and you can't necessarily fix it properly before the next one.

Also, I could only afford to choose from three horseshit 1960s cars which are about fifty times slower than the actual real car I drive at actual real speeds to work every day.

The meat and veg of the driving itself is very good though, and the whole thing is a delight in understatement after the increasingly preposterous IN YOUR FACE PUT IT ON YEWTOOB nonsense of the main DiRT series.

I shall persevere.

It's definitely a step in the right direction simulation-wise. Although some of the shunts you can endure and keep driving on afterwards are not wholly accurate.

It's quite an experience in VR.

I noticed during the loading screens, there's sometimes a little message that says something like "OMG, you totally upload that to twitch, right now!"

Funny fuckers.

Anyway, I'm getting better at this, in that I can complete stages without leaving a steaming wreck :)

Pretty much the same as how I do it, reckon.

Time trialling is boring. I prefer racing people.
