DiRT Showdown

 

Since its debut five years ago, the DiRT series has become one of my favorite racing franchises on the market. Its slick menu system immediately helped it stand out, and its rock-solid rally racing carried the torch laid down to it by the defunct...

Showdown's soundtrack impressed me quite a bit. While I'm not usually a fan of techno or dubstep, I liked how it was used here - to compliment the more rock-centric soundtrack in a way that fit the harder-edged style of the action comapred to the...

DiRT Showdown Review

 

The DiRT franchise is well known for its authentic recreation of the intense sport of rally racing. But the latest iteration, DiRT Showdown, is more about thrill-a-minute action; it thrives on nasty collisions, crowd-pleasing stunt driving, and a...

Down and dirty.

Solid destruction derby events; Likewise with the new Gymkhana events; Strong multiplayer, plus RaceNet; Great graphics and polish

Doesn't stand out as an arcade or a hardcore title; Race events and collisions don't mix well here; A lot of lost cars with in-game cash system

Overall, DiRT Showdown is an enjoyable romp through the, well, dirtier side of the franchise. Some of the technical excitement, like nailing a corner with precision and adjusting the car specifications to match the conditions of the road, is lost in...

It's got the attitude but does it have the horsepower?

Showdown may look heavy on options from its bombastic menus but ultimately it just feels like a narrow slice of Dirt 3 with some destruction derbies tacked on. There’s a good game in here, but there just isn’t enough of it. It’s perhaps eerily fitting...

Simulation fans, look away. This isn't for you. But fret not, because Codemasters will eventually deliver DiRT 4, which will be a return to authenticity and realism; their new project, Dirt Showdown is a fun, no-holds-barred spinoff. Recently revealed...

The style and atmosphere of the game is designed around the impact concept. Even in straight-up races, you’ll be on courses specifically created to encourage mayhem; tight turns and open spots of the track will just beg for some chaos. Between the...

Codemasters delivers a spin-off of the DiRT franchise, but does it live up to it's namesake?

Slick handling ; Presentation is fantastic ; Nice array of modes

Modes wear out quickly ; AI can be a bear ; Just feels shallow at times

DiRT Showdown- PS3

 

If you're looking for the next great rally simulator, you won't find it here. But to ignore Dirt Showdown because of its arcade styling would be to deny yourself one of the most satisfying of pleasures: that of mindless, over-the-top, and--above...

It's big but it isn't clever - but then, who wants to be clever when you can just drive into each other at high speeds? Dirt: Showdown successfully transplants the rally formula into an arcade mould, mainly because smashing stuff is fun.

Despite Showdown's limitations, as it has with its other games, Codemasters has provided this title with a solid foundation. The handling of the cars is thankfully easier than the base Dirt series, and the balancing on the Boost ability is great....
