It's probably the best looking racer out there, and has OK gameplay. Worth $7.50 I'd say.

People don't like it for not having a cockpit view, but otherwise it's a solid racer with great graphics.

IMO GRID 1 and DiRT 3 are better.

It's good overall. Got it free in the Facebook giveaway thing, then bought ALL the DLC for like $13 on Steam.

DLC wasn't really needed, but the game really shoves it in your face (Similar to how DiRT 3 did, if not worse). And getting it free I couldn't complain paying for DLC.

The game isn't without it's quirks. And the whole online mode is almost comedic, because of how progression based it really is. It's setup like they expect a hundred hours out of players to unlock things, and it's just not going to happen. Overall I'm happy with what I have invested in the game, but I wouldn't have bought it at full price having played it (Which wasn't the case with DiRT 2/3 and GRID 1).

First time buying from gamersgate...Strange that you have to wait a bit after order is complete. w/e though.

That's actually fairly new. They didn't used to do that, and I'm not 100% sure why they're doing it now. I originally assumed it was part of their allowing you to gift games you've bought for a short period...but I really don't know.


I've bought a handful of games from there, and it's only been the last few months that I've noticed them doing the 10 minute wait period thing.
