    Well, was just wondering, is dirt 2 worth buying? Because im not a rally fan, but i did see that this game had normal racing too. But am not sure if i should buy it or not.

    Pls help. Thanks.

    I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with Dirt2. Racing is not my fav (I only really play GranTurismo and Burnout) but it was really fun. I wouldn't pay full price for it though, I am sure you could buy a voucher from someone who bought an ATI card like mentioned above. Someone sold one here for $20 or so just recently. I got mine on a similar hookup.

    I'm sorry I will not insult you. but since you're not a fan of rally games, you are not so demanding.

    Dirt 2 is very arcade and fun.

    I prefer the simulations mixed arcade, something like NFS Shift.

    I'm a pretty big fan of racing games and would tell you it's easily worth the full retail price.

    Dirt 2 is so arcade and reminds me of being for the young preteen generation.

    I also prefer the simulation style with good graphics, NFS Shift is awesome.

    Dirt 2 is a great racing game, its like rally meets Tony Hawk games. That can mean both good and bad. It has traditional rally aswell as circuit races, trophy trucks and buggies.
