    Still skeptical after the announcement that they removed cockpit view. It's not that I use it, it's that I worry that will also mean a less polished, more dumbed down experience like the crappy Showdown was, which had no business even being a DiRT game.

    Being as I still play race games with a mere KB, I'm always on the fence about how much of a SIM-like feel I want. I like realistic suspensions and steering, but I also need traction control, ABS, and enough overall control to avoid sliding off track easily.

    While these videos give me more confidence that I can handle it with KB, vs the original country road vids showing a fair bit of sliding, the handling here looks a bit too grippy, and the steering almost looks like center pivot vs a realistic front swing type.

    Then there's the damage system. Will it have realistic looking damage that effects handling? That was one thing that kept you on edge with the first game. You'd struggle to get to the front, but then you had to worry about the car staying together if you had some scrapes.

    Not pre-ordering until I know exactly how the multi-player is setup. If it suffers from consolitis, no thanks. Perhaps I'll eventually get it in some sort of bundle.

    its true that removing the cockpit view is a bit of a let down. But i guess most people dont use it as its difficult that way. Even i didnt use it first. But later it was the only one i used.

    I have played dirt and grid both with KB, never had a problem. Only the F1 games leave a slight wish for having a steering wheel.

    Well no cockpit view and the fact that they killed online play with the first Grid leaves me thinking I will pass unless it is given to me.

    Pass or wait for a mod. No doubt someone will get crackin on that as soon as the game is out.

    thats true I used to love playing grid online then they just let those servers die + it seems on this one they are just making the game more generic to me.

    yes i totally agree with the posts above. The thing that will seal the deal for me is if the multiplayer system is well developed and interesting. otherwise i won't bother with this game just for the single player, no matter how good the graphics are.

    Waiting for this damn game for a long long long time!.

    Was pretty sad when cockpit view was dumped. I didn't really drive/play using it but sometime, the fun was epic!.

    Put a Ford Capri in it and ill buy it.

    Is it just me or does it look like the suspension is welded up. I mean there is no body movement in relation to the wheels, a nice little side shot of the merc with the wheels bobing a bit but even in a car like the merc with its lowered stiffened suspension the body will still roll when its going into corners at that speed. Then there's the pick-up's which look like they have exactly the same suspension profile when in reality they would be rolling all over the place with a ride height like that :/

    +1 on all the above , killing off the first ones servers left too bad a feeling towards codemasters ,and dumbing down there games isn't helping either, a shame as racing is my thing.

    Yeah, I just don't get it... It IS an AMD sponsored game. Cockpit view is perfect for Eyefinity. Oh well, I need a racing game and this will have to be it I suppose. Most of the time I use the "hood cam" anyways.
