Now dont get me wrong Dirt 3 is by no means a bad game but I cant help but feel let down by it after my expectations from Dirt 2. D2 in my opinion was just perfect, it seemed to have a lot nicer atmosphere about it, the car selection was a lot more vast, and a lot more options to customise your cars in Dirt 2 as well with the different vinyls you unlocked. I liked being able to select what car you wanted to race for an even where in Dirt 3 the cars are basically selected for you for each event rather that bought with in game money they are unlocked. Also in Dirt 3 it seems like there is not even half the amount of cars as in Dirt 2 as well its like theres only about 5 different cars in each class but theres just different sponsor vinyls.
The tracks are the same way where in Dirt 2 there are many different countries and tracks Dirt 3 basically has 4 or 5 locations with different variations of each track :/ The Graphics in Dirt 3 were no means bad but again I feel they look a lot cleaner in Dirt 2.
Its just all these little things that add up to become more and more disappointing, ive literally finished Dirt 3 in about a week to so it seems quite a bit shorter. Idk what do you guys think that have played or fans of the series?
Also this as well kinda tee'd me off is (yes stupid me) bought the game USED because it was much cheaper to find that it of course uses an online VIP pass which ultimately locks up half of the game.. Not only does it lock up the multiplayer but it seems like it locks up a good majority of the single player as well as about 10 cars are VIP class only locked, along with a few tracks needed for achievements and to complete the game. This seemed to take it to far. Along with the constant annoying messages begging you to buy the VIP pass.
But anyways what do you guys think about the new installment of the series?
