    I prefer the MkI. Too bad it isn't in DR 2.0.

    Love the Escort, i think the sound is definitely the closet any game has come to replicating the glorious sound of a BDA.

    The Escort and the Sierra have to be the most brutal rally cars I've ever experienced in the entire DiRT franchise. Period.

    So I suppose you've raced a Mk2 Escort in a rally in the real world and can testify to what one really handles like?

    Yep, it sounds amazing doesn’t it? They recorded a new sound direct from a real one for this game and it really shows.

    With all this hype on Dirt 2.0, I keep thinking how Wreckfest physics compare to A-list rally game? Pretty well i recon. Developer Bugbear has a rally classic called Rally Trophy undet its belt. Hope someone like Jimmy would review Wreckfest.

    My bad - made an assumption that i would have come across his video already if it exists. :lol:

    As i suspected great fun and surpricingly respectable feel and physics. I think this is the best game by far for folk racing. :cheers: too bad it doest get more love - theres great potential there.

    Indeed. It is an authentic recording behind it!

    I do love the Escort sound in GT Legends too
