Default Codemasters released Colin McRae: DIRT Demo

The Demo contains three racing types and three different tracks. Number 1 is the point-to-point racing, against-the-clock action thatís a hallmark of the series. The Colin McRae: Dirt demo (850 MB) pits you and your Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX against a testing Italian rally stage. This mode is also playable in multiplayer. Number 2 lets you test your nerve in off-road racing as you race against 9 fearsome AI drivers in a CORR class 1 buggy packing 650bhp. Number 3 take on the rally legend himself, Colin McRae, in a Subaru Impreza Ė the race is on a twisting tarmac crossover track in Germany.

the hardest difficulty level in the demo is very playable with the keyboard; not very realistic driving then, but quite fun;

graphics are awesome, no other word for them, the GFX engine is a lot more demanding than any other racing game out there; screenshots below were made on Core 2 6400 @ 2.8Ghz / 2Gb / 8800GTX, with all in-game settings maxxed out, and 2xAA/8xAF enabled. take a look at the FRAPS in the top right corner... at that's at 1600x1200. If some pics are "blurry" it's because of the "Motion Blur" GFX option

got be seen in motion to be believed is very close to "real" look, I think we're one/two game iterations away. I still remember playing the first Colin...



and 2.0, I still have that one installed, still fun, tarmac arcade and multiplayer really kicked ***!



3.0 was less fun for me



4 and 5 I never really got into




but DIRT (6.0) seems to recapture more of the fun of the first 2 games

Really hard to control with keyboard, not even near the fun you get with Live For Speed, though graphic wise I must agree, there is nothing out there that will come near this game.

I found that it responsed to hard on every time I pust my steering keys. That way, getting your car driving from point A to point B in one straight line can be quite challenging when you just came out of a corner. There is no setting available for adjusting this to my own likings. Life for speed is easy, Need for Speed is easy, heck even the previous CM game was easiers to get under control with a keyboard.
You are not having this 'issue'?

----
EDIT: After some practice I can keep the car under control on the small track, what I do is use use gas before going into a corner. Then the car starts to loose grip and controlling it gets easier (for me, that is). I also changed to incar view, seem work out best for me. With 1.06m I'm still far away from the so called World Record. The buggy race is really easy though, no problems beating the current track record there.
The "Rally" race gives you a good feeling about speed. Driving at =100km/h on such small roads kicks ***

K, I must agree there, RWD needs some practice too, I only played the S2 demo until now, the RWD cars available there are not that powerfull.
