  1. How are they and how so they compare to earlier F1 and other racing games in terms of reality? 

    Is F1 2021 worth the "£70" they are charging for it?

    The '01 Focus Martini and '07 Focus Castrol/Abu Dhabi liveries would be my pick from those above! 

    Is it March 24th yet? I want to throw that Legacy at some Finnish trees...

    why March 24th for release, is there a significance to this? Seems a long time to wait for DLC

    The Metro's getting a "Colin" livery (you saw it in the trailer).

     

    There might be more 😉 

    speaking of liveries, are we going to get any classic ones for cars such as the Lancia Delta Integrale (Martini) and other cars?

    Also will there be more content drops or is that it for DR 2.0

    Pretty sure they would have announced if that were the case, so I certainly wouldn't assume that.

     

    I can't say for certain, but the "DiRT Rally 2.0 has been a wild and exciting ride, and the ‘FLAT OUT’ pack is the perfect way to conclude the journey" quote from Ross would certainly imply so to me.

    The flat out pack is the true dlc for this game along with 2019 RX content. The rest is remastered and should have been in game from launch.

    My first post here, but I figured I would chime in since I have put a lot of time in on WRC 8. 

    I play on an Xbox One X and had been using a Thrustmaster TX. It took some time to dial in but the FFB was really good once I got the wheel right. If felt better than DR and DR2.0

    The default setups and quick adjustments for the car setups suck. To get the cars to actually handle properly, especially at slow speed, you have to setup the suspension and diff for each location. The physics shine once this is done. There still are some strange physics things going on though.

    There are invisible puddles sometimes, and the car's reaction to puddles and water spots is way over-tuned. It is also not predictable based on your angle of entry, throttle position, or speed. You also get no feedback from running over some larger rocks or brush on the side of the stage. Curbs on tarmac stages are the exception.

    Speaking of tarmac, the physics here are really good. The WRC cars tend to still be a little floaty, but proper suspension and diff tuning help with this.

    Back to the FFB. I just upgraded this week to a CSL Elite 1.1 with the R330 wheel and universal hub and CSL Elite LC pedals.

    The LC brake has made a huge difference, but it feels better in DR and DR2. The FFB in DR and DR2.0 now feel light-years beyond WRC 8 with my new hardware. I still have some tuning to do, but WRC 8 feels like canned feedback and vibrations now, to where DR and DR2 feel more natural; how I would expect the car and wheel to react. Tarmac still does feel better than the DR games, but even this has improved with the new wheel.

    And let's talk about fps on console. It runs fairly smooth for 30fps on my One X. BUT......the low fps starts compounding problems as you get faster. When I had the TX dialed in with the car settings right, I was able to push top 25 in a number of stages, but at this speed the frame stutter and graphics wash out was interfering with the physics and my ability to react. 

     

    TL;DR is that WRC 8 is a good game. It has its issues as does DR and DR2, but it's good. I would recommend if you want to play it seriously, do so on PC. The 30 fps limit on consoles will eventually hold you back. For asphalt rallies, it is much better than DR/DR2. On gravel, I still prefer DR/DR2. 

    My dream come true would be for CM to get the WRC license and make a fully licensed WRC rally game with DR2 gravel physics and proper asphalt physics.

     

    i have found using external ssd makes wrc 8 a lot smoother.

    The engine noise of the cars more or less all sound the same.
    Anyone who claims otherwise has never played it
    
    
     

    there are differences between cars. The fact is that's how they sound in real life, once compared to real life videos.

    It's like saying all touring cars sound the same, or all supercar v8 sound the same when in fact there are subltle differences between manufacturers.

    ah, a self-appointed troll! are you paid by bigben? you're not? then don't whine when people have different opinions from you because they have different perspectives and priorities.

    what ever,

     

    you have wrc 7 you say, that game was the worst in the whole series.  WRC 8 is a massive improvement, something that wrc 7 should have been. The handling in 7 along with controls were terrible, i mean terrible.

    I still want to pick it up, purely because it has the 2019 cars in it. All the videos I have watched of it seem to have dreadful car audio though! 

    the audio is pretty decent, i listen through 7.1 home theatre system and it is loud, the cars sound like they should imo, but this is official wrc title and DR 2.0 is a side championship to support WRC, thats how i look at it.

  9. it just feels right, great handling, great FFB, in ya face action, it's fast... it's realistic, oh the graphics are decent to.

    DR 2.0 feels dry, slow and tedious? been playing WRC 8 more than DR far more rewarding in every sense.

    Although i do enjoy a blast on DR 2.0 i find WRC 8 is more thrilling.

    Well, i now play both wrc8 and Dirt 2. Both games have their have their plus and minus. So for me, good times as a rally fan. 

    agreed, but i am swaying more to WRC 8 as i feel it's alot more in depth and intuitive. Going back to DR 2.0 does not feel strange, neither does going back to WRC 8.

    to be honest i cant stop playing wrc8, did quick try Greece and liveries on DR2.0 , but did come back to WRC8, i like the new feeling of unseen tracks, that look so incredible

    it is addictive, had a quick go on training earlier.

    ignore what Jake says he's a bit of a troll
