Played for a couple of hours, here's my first impressions: The sound: can we please have some more realistic sound for cars? I am a huge fan of group B and none of the cars in it sound right. I often watch videos of them and the game doesn't seem to get the engine sound and especially the deep tones of these monsters right. The tracks: looking very good so far, will have to log some serious hours in to find out whether or not they are in fact unique unlike the last Dirt game (which as we all know was a single stage cut into sections for its "tracks"). We need a lot more locations though. Also please put in the classic Pikes Peak when you make hillclimb, the old gravel version. The cars: selections not too shabby so far, want these cars though: Citroen Xsara, Audi Quattro S1 (with the body kit), Citroen DS3, Citroen C2, Toyota Celica GT4, Lancia 037, Ford Focus, Volkswagen Polo, Peugeot 206, and Mitsubishi lancer Evo 7. Handling: Maybe I just suck, but something about the cars handling feels off. Misc: If we pop a tyre, can we have the option to replace the tyre?(If we have a spare) with a short cutscene or something? That's all for now, first impressions and all.
My List - Build/optimise for Next gen and PC primarily. - More simulation options: limited tyres, service only available after a few stages, tyre changes in the rally track, terminally damaged cars stay on the side of the track with debri left on the stage - Better damage model - More realistic sound - Better cockpit cam - New replay editor - More rally stages - No repeated stage sections - Longer and more varied/unique stages to drive - TV style replay - Field of view adjustment - Rally championship, rally-only career - Playground/driving training space - Recce the stages - Service park - Realistic start - Dynamic weather system - Better pacenote choices - Authentic rally rules - Changing stage conditions - Enviroment sounds - Livery editor for cars - Night stages - Simple track maker - Moddable Game with sharing options for all platforms - Telemetry and motion support - No talking person in menus - Remove trailblazer and give hillclimbs back. - Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, Goodwood, and other good hillclimb tracks - More classic rally cars (like Talbot Sunbeam, Fiat 131 Abarth, Chevette, Stratos, etc) - All cars from DiRT 3 - Real hillclimb cars, not these fictional concept muscle cars. - More S2000 cars - Cars with different drivetrains (front wheel drive, rear wheel drive, four wheel drive) - Kit cars from 90's - Old WRC Cars - S1600 cars - All of Group B - Prototype rally cars as rewards - Don't show trailers before launch with paid DLC cars in it without specifically stating which ones are DLC, that was extremely dishonest with Dirt 3. - Gametype where a person plays as the co-driver and watches the track while reading pacenotes, could be interesting. - Splitscreen and system link support.
