The game is very irritating. It does not give you any type of practice races or learning in the game, you can't skip the opening intro movie, which is annoying, and it is very hard to play. I tried several times and it is just stupid hard to play, really no fun at all.
If you are new to racing games, please avoid this game at all costs. This game has the worst driving control ever. If you enjoy losing control of your car and driving around in a circle, then go and play this game. When I played this game, I thought my steering wheel that I just purchased was defective because it kept on making the car going out of control. But then I played Gran Turismo and noticed that it wasnt the steering wheel, but it was the stupid Dirt 2 game. I'm sticking to play racing on pavement from now on and avoid anything that has mud, sand, dust, dirt and desert because I know that the game will suck because you have no control over the car. Thanks to Gamefly for allowing me to test this out or else I would've wasted $60 on a wackazz game.

If you love staring at pics of 20-something-year-old, d-bags, with smug looks on their faces, and arms crossed, you'll love this game!
If you love spending the first 20 minutes of the game watching a video (instead of playing), then listening to a 20-something-year-old, d-bag, talking forever, you'll love this game!
If you love never being able to drive in a straight line, because the mechanics of the game force you to constantly slide, even on a straight-away (even though in reality that would not be true), you'll love this game!
If however, you don't love staring at men, or listening to them talk about how great they are, or watching video's of the game you rented rather than actually playing it, or playing a "racing game" that is not based in reality at all.... then skip this game.
I play a "racing game" to "race," not stare and listen to frat boys for 20 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
