@ maiden of haste

i'm the reverse, i'm glad they finally dropped colin's name from the title, it has fuck all to do with either him or real rallying. since the dirt franchise started it moved into rally cross which was not colin's forte (think he took part in one of them, near the end of his life)

on a side note, i really hope this doesn't revolve around travis again, don't know why, but i find him almost as annoying as ricky carmichael (SP?)

i'll give this a try if i can save some money, no other racing game i know of until forza 4

maiden of haste said:i still think it's disrespectful they dropped colin mcrae from the game nameI think it would be disrespectful to keep trading on his great name seeing as the franchise has moved away from what I would class as rally driving and as was pointed out Colin never really cometed in rally cross. As long as Travis Pastrana and Dave Mirra don't keep jabbering on I'll be happy.
It was all that dweeb Hot Rod's fault.

I liked the Colin-Series. I also played Dirt 1, but didn`t like it. I also played the Dirt2-Demo but I didn`t likeit. It has too much Funsportaspect.Not that hardcore rally-thing like the old CMR-Titles...
Hope it get`s better in part3...

Personally i hope its similar to dirt 2 but improved. Dirt 2 was probably the racing game that i have enjoyed the most on the 360
