It's active enough. And Survivor (co-op MP) is awesome.

Dirt 2.. You get more value.. AVP is active now.. but within 1-3 months.. the multiplayer will be semi-dead once more.. Or get both and chill with both good titles..

hmm yeah but I am thinking AVP may be more fun than dirt 2.

Go for AVP. It is really fun and mp is still active. It has dedicated server support also. DiRT 2 is using crappy GFWL BTW, the disease of PC gamers.

What type of genre do you prefer more, race driving or Sci-Fi FPS?

Racing is about the only MP I really like to play but when AvP was first out and I could get good ping the MP was fun. Alien for the win! Marines were fun also with a good team but never liked playing as a predator. Not my style.

Well I usually prefer FPS though I have not played a car racing since NFS underground 1.

BUT if AVP is not as epic and fun and don't have the online base as DIRT 2 then I may get DIRT 2

Man this is a hard decision LOL

I bought Dawn of war 2 recently for $13 an a ASUS Xonar DX sound card for $84 I don't like running up my credit card bill to much. SO I only want to buy one game here

NFS are very arcade and not about realistic car behaviour. DiRT2 is arcady in presentation, but it has good vehicle physics emulation and so is enjoyable if you like that kind of challenge. It's also mostly rally style where NFS are usually bling-mod-NOS-road-cruise stylee.

I don't know about it's multiplayer, but I find DiRT enormous fun but not a serious simulator. It's a good middle ground like I suppose NFS Shift tried to be.

AvP I don't have yet, but it is high quality from what I hear with plenty of action, rather than suspense. Also alot of blood and gore. I'm getting both it and Metro as I didn't care to pay RRP for either, but at this price, as with all Steam's sale, it's a no brainer

you know some people actually think this exact thing of steam?

and i played countless hours online (with friends mostly) in DIRT 2, and not ONCE had any of us lag, or issues with LIVE

and Dirt 2 is very active, theres always almost full games to find

AVP was a fun game but only lasted 4 days with me.

Got bored of it very very quickly and couldn't find MP games at all.

Dirt 2 was an awesome game, played it with a room mate for 1 week and we completed all the races. Great for that one week very enjoyable, haven't played it since.

I was making this decision for myself earlier as well. I went with Dirt 2 because I have a few FPS games that I don't really play, wouldn't expect AvP to be any different. I didn't have any racing games yet, so as I said, I chose Dirt 2. My friend had AvP for the 360 though, he loved it.
