After adding the game to my wish list I just removed it again. It's being used as bait, to catch anyone who won't want to miss out, which is disingenuous at best. In the least it encourages use of third party means of unlocking achievements because there will be no way whatsoever to get it otherwise.
Dirt Rally, however, is as real as it gets. The developers have created a brand new engine designed to replicate the real-world physics of rally driving as closely as possible. Lead designer Paul Coleman drives rally cars himself, so he knows first-hand what it feels like. You’ll just have to decide whether the content on offer is worth £25-a price that will rise as the game approaches completion.
Codies did launch Dirt Rally 2 earlier this year but that one’s 45, while this is free. Since its earliest outings under the Colin McRae banner, Codemasters’ rally series has traded on ‘feeling’ just right. The way its cars squirm and shift through corners; the way you can keep them just about under control while they power through turns at strange, unnatural angles-it’s always felt instinctively right.
Far from the stunt-driven, flashy entertainment of previous DiRTs, Rally is a deep and brutal sim that is out to ensure you fail your next MOT. Driving into trees, flooding the engine and going too off-road-in a range of weather conditions, naturally-will punish like no karting game you've played.
This marks a drastic shift for the series, with it now being more akin to the decade-old Richard Burns Rally than anything Codemasters has ever done before.
