Have put some time into DiRT 4.  Am enjoying the game a lot.  There is a lot going on in this game.  The menu screens make it look like a simple racing game.  Once you dig deeper there is lots to unlock and manage.  Course you win money to buy cars and upgrade them.  However there is more to than that.  You have a whole crew to manage.  They look after your cars.  So they get a cut of your winnings.  Then there is the PR person.  Which gets a cut as well.  They help you find better sponsors.  If you do well in a race meeting the criteria they set you win a bit of extra money.   Over time you can add more people to your team.  Each one can be upgrade or changed out if you are not happy with them.  All so the more you play you can unlock more sponsors you can add to the cars.  Then there is the facilities.  Each one does something different and is upgradeable.  Another thing is, you can own a car or a team can lend you one.  The trade off is you the lent one they take just about half your winnings.  But you don’t have to buy a car for that race type.  So there is a trade off.

DiRT 4 Hands On

Last week some time made a post talking about DiRT 4.  On how Amazon.ca had it on sale.  Well it showed up in the mail this past Monday (July 17, 2017).  Have been looking forward to trying this out for a very long time.  Just like every new game now a days.  There is a update patch to download.  Thankfully it didn’t take long.

First off this game is much different than the last few games.  Has some of the same elements from all the past games.  While bringing in lots of new things.  Haven’t tried it all yet.  One thing that stands out right way is you can choose to play in game mode or simulation.   It choose game because I think a racing game should be fun first and not wanting to smash your controller.  Once you pick a mode there are options to make easier or harder as well.  Only played a few rally and land rush races.  They felt good to race.  The controls are great.  The environment all so look great.  There seems to be a lot content to get though.  Not sure if I will be able to do it all.  But will try since I finished the first three games.
