But am i the only one who wants to vomit at the extreme commercialism of this game. Is it wrong to expect that a rally game should include rally stars, not someone who got bored of his BMX and jumped behind the wheel? Or a guy whos not satisfied with x-games gold in one discipline so figured he would try rally.

Dont get me wrong - Ken Blocks Gymkhana are simply stunning and no doubt these guys can all drive. But to me, rally is about competing in several stages in succession. Not driving for a couple minutes then hopping off overseas to throw the back wheels out in London.

BMW Z4 rally car (?!). I dont need to elaborate on how ridiculous this is. Likewise with the number of trucks and why do we need a Hummer in here as well? Or is this just satisfying the incredibly demanding, insatiable American bigger-is-better attitude?

Dirt 2 is a great game, the driving is incredibly rewarding, the graphics are fantastic its just sad that its cashing in on the popularity of the so called "legends" of rally. Personally, a rally legend is the likes ofSébastien Loeb orMarcus Grönholm. Which is why i was looking forward to the upcoming WRC game. Was being the key word until i played the demo that was recently released. In a perfect world we would have a game built like Dirt 2 but with the WRC format.

Or perhaps I expect too much.

The only thing that matters to me is the controls on the vehicle.
This game has the best current control scheme I've played.
They added just enough "Arcade" to the controls to make it very enjoyable, without making it too controllable.

The "who you're racing" and "what you're racing" don't really matter to me.
I'll race anyone, anywhere, in anything...as long as it's fun.
