    The game is very good, as fun as Dirt Rally, although not as much of as simulator. Codemasters' error was presenting it like a "Dirt Rally 2", as "infinite (with a subjective meaning of "infinitely different" and keeping Dirt Rally's remarkable stage quality) number of rally routes". Had they said "this is a return to the CMR roots" people would be in love with the game at this moment. They hyped the game to levels they couldn't return, even though they returned a lot. 

    If they were like "we're starting the Your Stage tool, not 100% yet" nobody would be complaining about the mostly bland stages but rather praising what -- rightfully is -- one of the biggest inovations, if not the biggest, in the recent history of racing games, and that finally gives rally games a meaning related to the real world other than a very hard exercise of memorization.

    This could be easily solved if Code gave us a word, a smoke signal or whatever, but they seem to basically have vanished like they did when F1 2014 was released. We all know the result for F1 2015... 

    Anyway, I liked it and I will keep playing it, a lot. But the whole situation still leaves a bitter taste, mainly when I think "the dark times" (like with F1 2014) may be coming back.
    Firstly the physics being not as 'sim' as dirt rally is only opinion. There are many areas which are miles better than DR, and others that aren't quite as good.

    Secondly coming out with a new game any saying 'we've got this new thing, it's alright but we haven't got it right yet' isn't a great way of selling a game!
  • Re: All Tracks seems generated and repeated...

    To be honest I'm normally concentrating way too hard on my driving to notice repeats.
  • Re: All Tracks seems generated and repeated...

    I notice the odd corner, like there's a 3 right tightens past junctions in Wales that comes up a lot, but honestly, most of the time I'm concentrating far too much to notice any other repeats/ remember what corners come next. I agree they occasionally get a bit same-y, mainly Wales, but that's what it's like in real life. Either forest or big open marsh land, not much else

    Well, unless things have changed drastically since I last played it, that sounds very wrong. Either that, or they couldn't work out how to get it on sim mode

    Hard to tell from that but I'm going to guess it's arcade hadling mode by the way the car turns and brakes. You can get an idea how the your stage works

    Wich video are you talking? In the one with the 208 the guy says thats arcade handling with no traction control

    Ah, well that would be because I watched it with the sound off, so now I look like an idiot!
