Hi all

Yesterday I purchased the early access version of DiRT Rally (atm minus 10% at Steam) and it is brilliant!
Up to date Richard Burns Rally (RBR) is the best Rally Sim but DiRT Rally has definitely the potential to become the new rally
reference. Even at the current early access state it feels (even so FFB needs a bit more tweaking), looks and sounds great.

DiRT Rally early access version comes along with historic and modern cars from the 60s, 70s, 80s, Group B, Group A and 2010s, all
together 14 cars (see link to car list video below).

The rally car sounds are one of the best I have ever heard. The Lancia Stratos sounds like it has to sound, evil and directly from
"hell". :)

Looks good Stefan. Confused me at first with the Codemasters series. Nothing to do with that or am I wrong?
Shame I would think about a purchase but I'm looking at the new F1 2015 in June first!

It is Codemasters :) , but they are going back to the roots to the good old early Colin McRae series (which of course was no sim), back to long and narrow rally stages.
The immersion is great (I guess that is a lot due to the good sounds)
and the physics feel good too. It`s not RBR yet, but has good potential.
I like it. :)

131 Abarth, Stratos, S4? Dear God... By default I don't support early access ventures, but this time... I'm struggling not to reach my wallet. Looking at many YT vids, they really did sway towards "simulation" side this time.

It's on my wishlist. :)

Though I doubt it can beat RBR's handling and I hold that game in high regard because it's the only sim that actually taught me how to drive.
I've seen some YT footage of the game and from what I gather you have a ton of grip, though there is nothing wrong with an arcade game as long as it's fun which is the most important thing and this game looks less bloated than the previous Codemasters installments.

I really like it! I've been waiting for a good rally sim to come out and this was a surprise to me.

Decent length stages with intensely challenging design! And they look fantastic!
Well, the Welsh stages that is. Greece is a bit meh and Monte Carlo is pretty much left/right/left all the way through with ice patches that don't do anything. But those Welsh stages! WoW!

Physics aren't good though and they won't be but even now it's plenty challenging and the AI are damn quick. It isn't easy keeping up with them without crashing.
But I just did a mini career with the Fulvia and it's exactly the same to drive as the Stratos but with less horsepower. Just bad. I did like the Escort MK II but only for the powerband.

Also, the controller support isn't quite there yet in this early release. My Bodnar wheel isn't supported and it doesn't accept H-shifters other than Logitech.
So for the moment I'm having a good time on the keyboard.

Stefan-----are you satisfied with the way it's evolving? I haven't bought it yet but probably will soon. The content seems to be growing fairly quickly.
