Is it just me or is Dirt 2 the best game in the history of video games ever?

well...I'm done with SRR ever since I spent days playing unlocking the good cars to reace with online and then I started up the game and got a message saying that my savegame was corrupt and I'd have to start all over... F all that noise.  Good game, but not worth playing single player all over again. 

And yes, I like Dirt 2 more than SRR and I have both on the PC as well.

If I had a computer that was worth a @#$%, I'd play it with you for sure.. It would be fun as hell.

Is it not as fun on the 360?

it doesn't look anywhere near as good on the 360.  I mean it still looks good for a 360 game, but you gotta remember we're talking about 3 year old console graphics compared to 4th quarter 2009 pc graphics...

I have this game on one of my rigs. This game looks amazing in Direct x 11. By far the best graphics I've seen on a racing game for the pc . On a triple monitor set up it's just plain unreal. Hey Ub3r, when my other loop gets done in my rig with the 5870 , I'll play some with D2 with ya.
 

Here's a good article on Dirt 2 and direct x 11 for those who are thinking about upgrading hardware soon.

In the first dx9 to dx11 picture there's an obvious difference.  In the others, I'm not sure I can see any difference.   I'm sure it'll run at a way lower framerate even if it doesn't look different though...:P  I'll wait until I'm running a system twice as fast as my current setup before messing around with anything more than dx9.  especially since I'm still on xp.

Uhmm yea I agree with ya Ub3r. In Xp with D9 the game still looks amazing and gets better framerates.. I guess unless you slow down a bit to admire the scenery , its hard to tell the big overall differnce wile playing.  ;D
Sill though, I have to admit , this game is impressive even on a mid range system.
