    Loved the first 3 Dirt games, all were great in their own respect.

    I just hope this game does not turn into a destruction derby clone.

    Will this have a stupid and intrusive voice-over by an annoying American driver virtually unknown outside of the US?

    DiRT was brilliant. DiRT 2 was good. DiRT 3? Spot the pattern.
