Rally game at heart def! The baja portion is fun but seems like they could have added more power to the trucks and buggies. If you like racing games, go get Dirt 2, its so good, it make u wanna slap your mama!

Tons of fun. Had to take a break so my controller could recharge and I wouldn't go blind looking at the screen.

How much desert racing does it have compared to Rally?

The promo's I've seen make it seem mostly like a Rally race game... :confused:
So far it's just like DIRT with the courses, but far more Baja vehicles. Robby's Hummer, the Trophy trucks of Collins and Jesse James, Jimco and Porter Class 1's, FJ cruiser, Class 8 Dodge, The Herbst's Truggy and a few more I have to yet unlock. This is what Baja should have been like.

Its not like Dirt 1 at all IMO as far as handling and tuning. Dirt 2 is an off road version of GRID. Aot of fun no doubt.

Gran Turismo of off road? NO.
Grid of off road? YES.

I don't like how they "dumbed" it down so much from the first game. You could tweak every little aspect of the setup in the first game, not anymore. Having to "upgrade" to Pro status is dumb, and WTH is with the gatecrasher race?

Don't get me wrong it's still a great game, I just wish they had kept the "Sim" aspects instead of going down the "Arcade" route.

yes it is dumbed down as far as the fine tuning goes. I was disapointed to find out that one can not tweak how short or tall 1st gear can be or how much power should go to the front or rear of the car. But let me tell you something, this game rocks!

Well said hock, well said.

We just have to face it, we, the off road racing community of gamers, want a full blown sim, and that is never going to happen. I like grid a lot, and I like dirt 2 a lot.

Night racing is pretty fun so far. It's all been on well lit tracks so far.

Imo its the best racing game ever made by a long shot. the baja part is way better and there is a lot more of it. its also cool that you race all the cars on the same tracks. definitely worth the money.

Best off road game of all time? Maybe... But barely. You guys need to spend a little time with dirt1 and baja. Baja has ten times more track. Less detail, more realistic handling.

wtf? dirt one has the best handling the thing with dirt 2 is its dumbed down a lil and if you tap someone youre spun out. Baja has decent handling but WTF is with preloading and the like?
