Still playing it! Got one last event to do then I have wrapped up the career. Will probably work through the rest of the Joyride challenges after that and finish getting all my cars up to "A" spec.

Still playing, went back to Dirt rally for a moment, but a bit frustrating With the low grip and the same tracks, so went back to Dirt 4 again.

My T300 broke down, so I am trying to figure out what wheel to get next. I have a nice wheel and pedal set for the TM family, so i guess I'm stuck with them. Wonder if the T-GT is worth the wait and if they'll sell it as a servo base only. Well.. Would have been playing otherwise.

I left it after only 2 weeks of gamplay because the game is boring.
Now i've just pressed the start button again since we're able to make mods (skins at least), to check my creations . That's all

still playing, bought the sierra cosworth and having a blast atm. but yes, sometimes i feel it's a great game, sometimes i m disappointed, but the more i play the more i discover how to setup a car and so i can enjoy driving a lot. slowly forgetting DR handling. RX is awesome, sweden is my least favourite place in rally, michigan should nox exist at all or really improved, i hate crosskarts and now i m hoping they will expand the contents. we still don't have a place with mixed surface

I played it for 3 weeks. Then I got an oculus rift and now I only play DR and dont want to go back to D4 again. Another reason is, that i couldn't load my setups anymore, cause my engineer dropped 2 points... Great skill point system on setups... And why the hell, I can't load e.g. snow setups on gravel tracks? Just as base for adjust tuning anyway... The tarmac feels too perfect to me... The snow tracks are have so many knolls and dips... Hmm.. No VR... No Reason. DR feels perfect...

The menue loading times, compared to DR are - let's say- million times longer. In don't understand why, cause they just need to load a background video (with this Ford (?) Rally Car) and menue items. But I think, the car is rendered in realtime? So the menue has to load all of the environment and effects? I don't know. But to drive many stages in a short amount of time is better in DR.

But I am really sad about these points. Cause D4 has much potential and a nice athmosphere. I hoped, they will add VR and fix this setup skill point problem. But - for me -  it feels Codies don't even listen to points, which dissapaoints some people very much and are ez to fix or to add. For me, they waste energy in wrong tasks. First, they should enhance the Generator with more variations (I know any tile) and parameters and add VR. If u offer VR in an earlier title, u have to care about the addicted VR people. That is, what I would decide as CEO. But it's all about sponsoring, investments and easy and fast money.

Hopefully they join all these needs in DR2.  :#

I play it regularly, or at least when I have time to play.  Almost finished with first playthrough of the entire career mode. Will likely go back and retry career on the next higher difficulty setting (Professional I think?)

Before that though, I'm going to have some fun with the Freeplay mode creating Championships and events. Still way too many car and track combinations I've yet to try...

After that I might even restart the game from scratch and recollect cars, build my team and facilities on the highest difficulty setting for the ultimate challenge.

Just a word of warning if you're on XB1 and decide to start from scratch...
If you have the monthly challenge done and are waiting for the remaining time to expire in order to unlock the corresponding achievement then resetting your stats will also reset this achievement and you will have to redo it when the current challenge expires..and wait another month to get the achievement.
I discovered this the hard way and i'm now waiting patiently to see if i have glitched the achievement or to get my 1000 gamer score.. The tension mounts as the clock ticks down.

To answer the op. I personally don't play the game at all now because when you reach the point when the only challenge D4 has left to offer is 'fearless' difficulty then all that landing on your roof with the slightest contact with trackside hazzards, all that ridiculously exaggerated car movement when straying fractions off the track parameters and the total randomness of the AI stage times does make everything borderline unplayable.
But i suppose up until that point, if you can get over the sameness of the stages then there is quite a lot of gameplay in there...

I stopped playing D4, waiting for an update, or more certainly waiting for PCars2 ;-) 
D4 is not a bad game, but is so disappointing after DR... I have a T300, the FFB is NOT GOOD on D4. This point ruins the game, and the strange physics on gravel too.

I'm still at it. Though like many said, I find the handling very odd. I play with sim mode using game pad so I can't speak for wheel experience. With the pad however, it feels like a less precise version of DR, not to mention unpredictable behaviour of some cars. 

I personally think D4 should have been more akin to D2 and D3. It should have continued the series with focus on a well balanced gamer friendly handling. Pushing the sim agenda imo has had a negative impact on the mainline series. 

Instead, I'd like to have seen a new series start from DR. This should follow the trend set by DR (early access, incremental updates and all that goodness) with a focus on moving towards a more permanent foundation where they can focus on improvements and content without major overhauls every time. I hope they are working towards a tech pipeline that will allow them to do this.

Right now, D4 feels like it's trying to be many things for many people, but not making good first impressions. I'll still complete the career mode, but beyond that I think I might return to DR and start it's career mode again.

Still at it here right around 150 hours, loving the game, i spend my time doing community events, and tuning cars in freeplay or going for WR'S in career stages. It seems you either really like the handling or you dont at this point, i think it feels spot on now that i got a better wheel.

After upgrading my PC, I have yet to install D4 and I'm not sure I will at this point. I'll most likely use DR for the time being and see if any improvements are made to D4. I will probably look to PC2 for it's Rx content provided the player reviews are positive overall.

I put it away until clubs come in to avoid coming into clubs with the burnout I had after running DR events for two years. I want to be excited to run rally championships, and a break has gotten me back there. :smile:

Still playing it, but paused for now while I'm building a new gaming PC. Playing it at 900p40ish was fine until the prospect of 1080p60 started getting closer. D4 will be the first thing I re-install.
