Dirt 2- PC

 

I can still remember it; even though it happened way back at the beginning of my Dirt 2 play through. I was in Baja, and right after the start of the race there's this big jump. I take it along with the rest of the pack, but as I'm cresting I notice a...

So should you buy it? I’d say yes. Dirt 2 is simply a delight to see and a joy to play for anyone who’s even moderately into racing games. And that’s Codemasters’ big success here -they wanted to make a racing game everyone could get into, be they...

DiRT 2

 

If you have any interest whatsoever in off-road racing you'd do well to take this beautiful and thrilling game for a spin.

Variable difficulty caters to players of all skill levels ; Lengthy career mode is tough to put down ; Multiplayer is loads of fun and mostly lag-free ; Audio and visual presentation is superb

Colin McRae Dirt 2

 

Being filthy never looked (or played) so good

Best-looking racer around ; Enormous sensation of speed ; Involving career mode

Lacks customisation ; Not enough vehicle choice ; Won't be "sim" enough for some

Dirt Track Racing 2 Review

 

The ear splitting roar of an unmuffled engine, the smell of fuel and hot rubber in the air, and mud in your eye, what could be more fun?

I was just a little disappointed in this release in that I expected so much more than I got. Each of Ratbags previous releases gave us something new, something different, whereas this game has just revisited the original DTR with some updated graphics...

Dirt Track Racing 2

 

This game proves that it's still a lot of fun to play in the mud!

Fantastic physics; believable computer-controlled cars; topnotch career mode

Kinda ugly; tracks can get repetitive; interface needs help

DiRT 2 review

 

Following up on the successful racing game DiRT from 2007 is Codemasters' sequel DiRT 2. Actually the franchise has existed much longer than that, but with a different name. The Colin McRae racing games always had a hardcore following with its ultra...

Racing fans have probably been pretty disappointed with 2009. DiRT 2 gives you a reason to celebrate. It is a solid more simulation-style racing game with an emphasis on offroad and rally races. The rides are cool, the physics are among the best in...

Colin McRae: DiRT 2 Review

 

I was very impressed with the console version of Colin McRae's Dirt 2 when it arrived back in September. The PC version seems to have taken an age to become available, usually when this happens it's quite often a sign things are going to be better or...

Gorgeous vehicle models ; Fantastic vehicle handling ; Challenging driver A.I

Lack of tracks and race types ; Cheesy driver chat ; No vehicle set-up option in multiplayer

Colin McRae: DiRT 2

 

DiRT 2 seemed a bit of a risky move when it was first announced. Much of this was down to the unfortunate and sudden death of Colin McRae only a year previously. It all felt a little strange to have another game bearing his name despite the great man...

DiRT 2 is a hugely enjoyable and well rounded game. It might not be as sim-like in nature as some hardcore rally fans may have wanted, but what it does offer is thrilling and enjoyable racing. The variety of racing events is varied enough that you...

Colin McRae: DiRT 2 (PC) review

 

A roaring rampage of dirty arcade action…

Forgive the game its trespasses though, because none of this makes DiRT 2 any less the thrilling, gutsy driving pleasure that it is. There’s definitely enough here to warrant a purchase purely in the PC-specific sense, even though it may not be...
