Apparently this is old news, but I did not see it posted anywhere else. There is now no excuse to not have this fantastic rally game. Codemasters has improved it greatly over the last few months via patches, the most recent being a patch that makes Dirt Rally 2.0 VR on the PC one of the best VR racing experiences ever. New DLC of Wales and Greece just continues to impress. Yes, these are rallies that were available by default in the original DiRT Rally, but they are really well done and feel very different somehow. I hated Greece in DiRT Rally 1.0 and love it in DiRT Rally 2.0!
DiRT 2.0: Oculus VR Update Arrives at Last

It's a great VR experience on Oculus VR via Steam now.
A couple of effects that really stand out:
+++ The cars feel like they pivot around the driver's hips, both the front and rear of the car feel agile especially on loose gravel surfaces. There is a great feeling of being in and connected to the car.
+++ The steering feel (I know divisive DR2.0 subject!) on the TX458 wheel for push on understeer on gravel is just superb, turn in too fast and beyond the grip available and the weight in the wheel is progressively lost, the wheel feel becomes rubbery and in the cockpit the nose of the car pushes wide. Feels superbly real to me. It's such a marked difference when I hook up the car correctly through the corner and the weight and balance of the car remain consistent.
++ Slides can be caught and corrected intuitively, there is a real feeling of weight balance and transfer.
Just one warning, I play and can stomach all the current track and rallycross type racing games in VR. Hours in DCS or ACC leave me with no ill effects but Dirt 2.0...
+ Wales Rally GB is what I'd describe as about as intense a VR experience that remains enjoyable.
-- Argentina, especially at night and/or in bad weather, with all that bouncing around and tight corners is the first game that has caused me the feelings of the start of motion sickness for a long time. 2 stages back to back were enough for me!
