    This game was only $6 on the D2D sale a couple of weeks back. Not that anyone cares, though, as that version wouldn't give you achievements.

    Anyone wanna recommend this? I haven't been into driving games for a while, and I prolly won't play it much, but the price is right, how long would it take to 1000/1000?
    I loved the 360 version and i believe they are exactly the same so id recommend it yes!

    According to Steam, I currently have 16 hours logged on Dirt 2. I'm at 660/1000. The game is a lot of fun and the online multiplayer is still very active -- have no trouble finding a game.

    I'm running it on a couple of 8800GTS 512 cards (now 3 years old) at maximum detail, 1920x1200, 8xMSAA. Granted, I'm running SLI, but I don't think this game has steep requirements compared to some.

    I do recommend picking up a wired 360 controller. The game supports it perfectly and makes the gameplay so much more enjoyable over playing with the keyboard.

    Really? DiRT 2 on the PC? That sounds bad...

    I'm not sure any DotW count, it says on the 800msp rebate offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other discounts.

    All GFWL games auto detects Xbox 360 USB and 360 Wireless pads.

    The GFWL games acts like 360 games including Achievements.

    It works well too. :)

    Not the case for Bioshock 2. It's only keyboard + mouse.

    Why PC? *sigh* I would definitely pick it up for XBLA at that price...even though I'm still not into driving games after 90 hours of Forza 3. X_x
