Picked up Dirt Rally for £11.99 on the playstation store at the weekend. Absolute bargain and it looks great on the PS4 Pro in 4k.
Itís hard.....very hard. It makes Project Cars feel easy in comparison. Iíve decided to play it right from the off with no map or on screen displays at all, other than the dashboard gear indicator. Just the co-driverís voice. It not only gives you a more realistic look, it in fact teaches you to judge the speed via the gears and the rev range.
This 1970s Escort
is a beast of a rear wheel drive rally car and is almost impossible to tame without traction control when you first jump into it. After a couple of spins and a near roll right at the end (an extremely fortunate outcome!) I started to get the speed up. I actually followed that with two completely clean stages, but whereís the fun in videos like that.
Tip: traction control reduces your acceleration dramatically on gravel, as you need wheel spin to cut through it to the firm surface below for grip. It leads to some real tank-slappers though!
