I quite want to get one racing game for my rift but generally don't like them as I'm useless at racing games (apart from Mario kart) I heard this is really difficult, am I better off getting project cars or something else?
^^I am a casual racing fan game wise, BUT, i did find that this was actually a lot of fun once you resign to the fact this is not Grid 2, Forza or GTA, you are not going to come in first all the time with ease, once you understand that you will eventually learn the game and actually start coming in first, and as it turns out it is a fun game after all, and for £5.28 what have you really got to lose.

And in VR this game takes on a whole new level of immersion, i love it. lol

Grid 2? 7/10. Dirt Rally is better than that.

If you have a Rift then you are missing out by not at least trying a racing game. IMO seated racing / flight sim games are where VR truly shines, especially when coupled with some decent peripherals (wheel, pedals, HOTAS).

I would recommend Dirt Rally over Projects Cars 1 / 2 because it's a bit more accessible and less hardcore. Project Cars is very unforgiving and has a steeper learning curve. I also found it much easier to set up a comfortable control profile for Dirt Rally. It ran nearly perfectly with my wheel on the default settings. With Project Cars 2, I still haven't managed to find a force feedback profile I am completely happy with despite hours of testing and research on the web.

Thanks guys, with comments like this it sounds like I'd be stupid not to give it a go

Honestly I find PCars less hardcore. In PCars you can just fire up a race with some slow AI, turn on as many aids as you need and have a fun race. Dirt Rally you have to listen and understand the never ending stream of pace notes, which is very stressful, and it's mostly twisty technical corners and hairpins. Apart from Finland, you never get to keep your foot flat to the floor for very long or reach high speeds.

Since getting my Rift I've put way more time into PCars and bought PCars 2 a few days ago.
I’d also agree that Dirt is really tough unless you are good at racing games. It’s probably the most technical racing game I’ve come across and all about shifting the cars momentum at the correct time to take the corners as fast as possible. There are tutorials but effectively they are just videos explaining the theory behind it, I watched them and I’m still terrible. The downside of playing in VR is how your stomach will react to high speed crashes. I’d personally recommend Project Cars 1 or 2. I’ve not tried 2 but I believe the VR experience is better.

Well I bought it but I've had such a hassle getting it working with my steering wheel I've not even done a race yet. I don't know why but the vr feels a lot less impressive than other vr games. I doubt I'll play this but it's good to have a racing game to show others. I'll probably pick up project cars if it goes on sale for something like this
