Any opinions so far? And are the tracks longer again than in Dirt³? The wait-for-loading vs racing times were somewhat imbalanced for my gusto.
Yes you are right, its not a rally game, but more a demolition derby dirt track racing and gymkana game, real arcade style. Cars are auto transmission with no adjustment. Tracks are short and stadium style. There is not much skill, although getting shook around on demo derby events makes it tricky to play. Its good for entertainment on an arcade level. I like it as I have been looking for a arcade game for motion.
Play the demo and see how you go. it doesn't take that long to load, even with its "moments of stalling" Just enjoy it as a "jump in and go" game. Races take about 2-5 minutes, so quick action.
The wait for loading , as said, may be related to the malabytes software running in the background. I will disable it next time I play and check the results.
