I like dirt shodown.
Haha...you may say it. I bought it recently and I like it, even though I'm awful at the donut stuff. Online racing is most fun since MSPR.nice handling and a lot of fun.
gymkana or however you spell it? Might be my favourite part.
Yes but le me explain why: in MSPR bam you get hit and then spend the next 3 minutes trying to catchup and get revenge. And you know from that first bam that you will never win no way.
Enter Dirt Showdown (8 Ball): because there is the catch-up boost enabled, that means I can focus on the wreck part and STILL catch up on the leader. Like first turn carnage YES ! Said leader is of course hindered by the course, with the followers hitting him at the crossing. Many races I lost at the last 10-20 secs., many other I won on the last turn. And rampage / knock out are also fun and does require some strategy to win.
Lets put is this other way: in MSPR ranked you enter with the FEAR of being wrecked. In Dirt Showdown, you enter with the DESIRE to wreck someone. And this is quite different and in my humble opinion way more fun. I find at the end of the session I feel relaxed, somewhat happy, my mind is clean and free of HATE and this is something I did not manage to achieve with MSPR at all.
Now - if we could have some more tracks please. And NFS Most Wanted is around the corner which should also be good. And the Evos should play a couple of games of Dirst Showdown and learn what makes games fun.
I even like the stupid comments like "Why did you leave the platform ?" when you miss and fly off the platform in knock out.
