@Rerejo28: you mean DiRTy :P

Watching this just makes more hope that Dirt 4 will be more serious. I was one of those people the Codemasters guy mentioned who played the old Colin McRae series, and I was completely turned off by the Americanisation and 'crazy' gameplay of the recent games. Hopefully Dirt 4 will actually be about rallying for once.

As one of them dudes who loved both 2 and 3 for different reasons, I think this is pretty awesome for the mountain dew man in me

Love the quote written on the Police car "To swerve and deflect"

So a new destruction derby? Hmmm seems ok.

Edited by CptBedlam

Now that Flatout has gone down the drain with the abysmal third entry in the series, this could really be an alternative to satisfy my Destruction-Derby-needs.

But please: no more Gymkhana... shit was stupid.

And I really hope Codemasters will make a more Rally-focussed game again some day, at least as focussed as Dirt 1 was ... with damage repair between stages, long stages , no "hip" X-games crap etc. And again: no more Gymkhana, please!

Ah, looks very interesting. I really respect in-depth driving games but at the same time I'm more than a bit too dense to be capable of getting good at them most of the time. So this looks like an excellent contender for me to be able to join the fun without getting frustrated or bored.

I really need to get my hands on DiRT 2 & 3.

I remember when before Dirt 3 came out Codemasters talked about it having 'more rally', then it came out and well lol. I paid full $45 preorder on Steam for that, now I never have to worry about giving them that much money again. This thing has a stupid name and seems pretty destined to bomb to me. Only 2 things can come out of that, they stop making Dirt thinking nobody wants it, or go to more rally to keep the series/sales alive. Since we don't have any good rally games right now, the only way we can go is up I guess.

This. So very, very much.

This quicklook was 70% replay system. You have been warned.

Posted by Soviet666

Looks like big Gymkhana game, which was the worst part of Dirt 3. Also, Codemasters have crazy bad DLC policy. I'll pass.

Edited by 71Ranchero

The car is a re-skin of the Jupiter from GRID. The figure 8 track is also from GRID. Actually the handling and damage looks lifted from GRID too.

Posted by AngelN7

The DD stuff looks kinda cool but I don't know how I feel about the rest of the game , I love Dirt but this dosn't look like arcade Dirt to me, I need to see more of it

Wow how condescending, what "Americanization" are you talking about exactly?? The colin mcrae games always sold well in the US. Blaming the game changes on Americans is just ignorant and pathetic, don't be so quick to shovel the blame for something you don't like. Disgraceful, yet so common among non-Americans

Posted by Shimakaze

What's with all the Norwegian balloons?

Posted by LaszloKovacs

This was probably too early to show, it doesn't look like they have enough content for a really substantial demo yet.

I've got faith in Codemasters, though.

This looks the same as the other one.

Where to begin. The downsizing of rally sections. The introduction of trucks, buggies, hillclimbing etc. X-Games. Gymkhana. The whole "Xtreme" makeover. Need I go on?

Blaming the game changes on Americans is just ignorant and pathetic, don't be so quick to shovel the blame for something you don't like.

I don't think there's much doubt that Codemasters made these changes to appeal more to the American market. All I want is for them to do for rally what they've done for F1, ie. to produce a more serious game that appeals to fans of the sport. As for me being condescending, that was not my intention, and the problems that I have with the direction that this series is going in are not new ones. Sorry if I offended you.

That's true ... as soon as all these "pay events" started to appear, littered all over the career mode, deliberately ruining the completionist aspect for anyone who wouldn't pay, I sold the game.

I'm so tired of these Quick Look EXs.

Posted by Mongoose

Always strange to hear fellow countrymen touting games, although I know it shouldn't be. Also, I'm in agreement with the majority, think I'll wait for Dirt 4. I want my rallying.

Posted by Cheebahh

@Watson87: I agree, I enjoyed the older more serious Colin McRae games far more.

Edited by Jace

Skipping this game.

The way he described their methods of fixing good players online made me throw up a bit.

"Yeah, if they're good we punish them."

Nope.

Wow, watching this just gets worse and worse. Oh, I was fish-tailed? No problem, I'll just use my infinite boost. Ughhhh.

Posted by beef_melody

I don't get why the heck Codemasters don't just do a point-to-point game without any of the "extreme" aspects for once. It seems to me with every new release of DIRT they are catering more and more to the arcade racer style of game, of which there are an absolute glut, whereas there are very few rally sims that concentrate on the timed stages and car management. I'm far from a hardcore rally fan but I had more fun with the McRae games and Richard Burns Rally because they were accessible while remaining as true as possible to the real rally experience.

Posted by Nitrium

That doesn't look good. Skipping this one after Dirt 3, which was a disappointment.

Posted by iamthejuggler

I loved destruction derby on the ps1, but this looks less interesting than that and that was what, 15 years ago?

What's up with these this week? Is there some sort of convention or publisher event happening at the moment?

Posted by mortal_sb

currently playing dirt 3 and i'm liking it a lot. BUT. i don't really like the gymkhana/x-games stuff. i wan't more rally and race events.

Posted by chilibean_3

@Atramentous: I was thinking the same thing.

There seems to be little to no reason why this has the Dirt name to it. Maybe they'll have more to show in the coming months but I'm okay with letting this pass.

Without a bunch of games coming out to do regular Quick Looks of we wouldn't have much video content this month. I think this is them just finding a way to show us games and put out content any way they can.

I saw what you did, and I know who you are.

Posted by jozzy

Respawning in destruction derby, really? Big part of that type of event is the risk-reward of trying to do damage versus trying to stay alive as long as possible (especially in the chaotic beginning) so you can keep racking up points.

Posted by Bunkerface

A good new Flatout, sign me up.

Posted by CptBedlam

@chilibean_3: I'm not complaining. It just seems they are attending some sort of event.

Posted by Death_Burnout

I don't want to join in on the massive shitting party but I have to. They lost me on Dirt 3 after having those 3 assholes constantly treat you like your special. "greeaat job you can do it! you're doing great!" it was a minor thing but it really soured the whole game for me, just couldn't get past it, especially when i couldn't mute them out. Also it was just disappointing. Loved Dirt 2 though.

I was a big Flatout guy, so the destruction derby in this is appealing, but...nothing else really is? so far anyway. Also Flatout has been there for your 'demo derby' needs for years, just, no one plays those games.

Posted by granderojo

I had many many hours in Dirt 3. This looks awesome to me. The multiplayer did have many of the problems he spoke about with people leaving.

Posted by McBobbyFresh

Was anyone else put off of Dirt 3 because of the dlc feeling more like parts of the game were missing instead of feeling like it would just add more to game? I felt I wasn't able to 100% the game (like i was able to in Dirt2) because i didn't have the dlc. If Codemasters put the cars and tracks in a dlc section until you purchased it without scrolling through the main game and seeing "buy" on a large portion of the tracks and cars I don't think i would of felt like that because Codemasters does give you a lot in the initial game.

Posted by SlashDance

The cars disappear when they're totaled ? That's weak.

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

I feel that the importance of those pyrotechnics cannot be overstated.

Was thinking the exact same thing. I'll probably give this a try since I really liked Dirt 3 and this looks kinda interesting, but I don't have high expectations.

Nope, a few posts further down, quoting myself:

When are they making an actual rally game? It's been a while.
