Ice-rallying vs Dirt3
Top Gear tests the virtual arena of an ice rally stage in a real rally-spec Mitsubishi Evo…
Posted: 29 Mar 2011
You'll be pleased to know Top Gear spent a few hours thoroughly testing the game - all in the name of science, of course - to find it's a fantastic rally sim. Power off, turn in, slide and then bury the throttle button and you pirouette like Loeb. Obviously, a lack of actual physical death doesn't haunt your every steering input, so you end up carrying far more speed into the game's corners.
But with over 50 cars spanning nearly 60 years and 100 routes across eight locations (Norway, Kenya, Finland, LA, Michigan, Smelter, Monaco and Aspen), it has the history, the visuals, sound and playability to give you a digital lesson in rallying.
It hits the UK on 24 May on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
