Our PC videos of DiRT 4

Our PC videos of DiRT 4

After the disappointment of the first stages in Michigan, DiRT 4 has shown us its potential, with the narrow and curvy roads of Wlaes, Spain, Sweden and Australia. That being said, you must keep in mind that this new installment in the series is nowhere near the complexity of DiRT Rally, but is however much closer to the first Colin McRae games than the first 3 DiRT when you choose the simulation mode. Although the driving is more forgiving than in DiRT Rally, it is still interesting enough once you've left the R2 cars behind, but we believe Codemasters will have a hard time convincing those who are into hardcore simulations. Those with a more open mind will disover a fun game to play that can offer enough realism to maintain their interest for a little while, until DiRT Rally is announced maybe?


Note: We're still experiencing issues with 4K capture so you might see some frame drops that will not be due to your PC. If the Mirillis Action! counter does not drop, it's not the game.

Note 2: So the game remains steady at 60 fps in 4K, we had to set shadows to high and turn off advanced ambient occlusion and advanced blending. That way, the game is smooth with a GTX 1080, except during replays when frames can drop (it also happens in 1080p though). 1080p footage was recorded with ultra settings (with advanced blending activated).

DiRT 2 is probably still codemasters best looking DiRT game.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The best conquest modes are assault/double assault. They need to bring them back... but not for Bad Company. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But they're also introducing new field upgrades too which just seem to further break predictable encounters. Lots of give and take. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: Battlefield 1 conquest sucks. They've improved it (or are?) by introducing a neutral bleed state (tied flags = no ticket gain). That's a partial fix. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: Nah conquest is okay in Bad Company 2. I just don't like the movement, combat, or vehicle handling. It's all piss poor compared to BF3/4. (1 Hour ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 Unlike in past BF games if were down by that many, by some miracle we could eventually make a comeback. (2 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: After playing BF1 for awhile i feel the same. Still not use to the ticket bleed in this game. If you're down by 300 tickets in BF1, you've already lost. (2 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: PC wise i can understand BC2 wasn't popular there. Controls, especially on a mouse felt super sluggish and CQ was too small with massive chokepoints. I'd prob place BC1 ahead of BC2. (2 Hours ago)
