I tried it. While I love the on-track environment (visuals, sound, etc) and consider them greatly improved over Dirt1, I hate Hate HATE the menu interface. This is even worse than the first game. Why do game devs feel the need to make overly complex, layered, animated transitions? I just want to select what I want and get on track as efficiently as possible. And I'm not the least bit interested in what Ken Block, Travis Pastrana, and presumably some other hot shot drivers have to say in my ears now and again. Sadly, I will not be buying this game because of these 'features,' and the more-of-the-same racing. Despite the presentation improvements over Dirt1, this game is not worth my money. At least not so far.
I liked the first, I like this, and I'll def be getting it eventually. I can deal with sub par menus for very probably the best arcade racer out there in my opinion.
Also, agree about Pastrana, Block etc. If it was Colin McRae (RIP) giving slight advice or something it'd be one thing but "You did great!" is not something I need to hear as I am not a child who needs constant reassuring.
Now having the full game I can say it is a complete improvement over DiRT 1. Still has the problems (at least IMO) that DiRT had I.E. too much focus on non-rally events (stuff like Raid, Landrush etc), cars for some reason not added to the game (No Ford, Skoda, Citreon etc rally cars despite their popularity, along with removing the "classic" cars DiRT 1 had) etc.
Still, I have a good bit of fun with it. Worth the money imo.
