    Yeah I am tempted to buy a good racing game (esp for $10) and I love great graphics period but I just can't control them for shit whenever I've tried.

    I tried it, but the lack of controls killed it for me. And the voice acting, sheesh, right out of Point Break. Aggravating. If I ever get a wheel/pedal combo I'll give it another shot. I just don't play enough racing games to justify the expense.

    Yeah, I'm horrible at using the keyboard for racing games. The Xbox 360 controller works great though and does a really good job with vibration.

    Lol at the Point Break refference! :laugh:

    It's a fantastic sandbox game, but it does require an investment (in time) to get it set the way you want to (plugins, additional content, etc).

    They also have Beat Hazard on sale for $5, as well as Ghostbusters for $7. I'm debating on getting one or the other with Dirt 2. Any input?
