Dirt Showdown

 

Dirt Showdown is one more entry in what is shaping up to be an evolutionary year for the racing genre. First came Ridge Racer Unbounded, which reinvented the classic franchise into a grittier and more aggressive racer. Later this year, Forza Horizon...

Series fans may find the game a too easy, and I’m not sure Codemasters has done enough to position the game as a Dirt game for non-Dirt fans. In chasing after a new audience, Codemasters may have very well alienated both. Dirt Showdown might be a...

DiRT Showdown Review

 

Dirt Showdown is a satisfying mix of driving tricks and destruction wrapped up in the slickest of presentations.

Varied deformation models make for satisfying destruction ; Sharp presentation and smooth visuals ; Wide range of event types ; Online racing is masses of fun ; Easy-to-master arcade handling

Single-player campaign lacks a proper career to nurture or narrative to follow ; Cheesy commentary wears thin quickly

Competing with friends really is the best way to enjoy Dirt Showdown. Sure, the single-player campaign is pleasant enough, but it's nothing compared to the joy of online destruction and the satisfaction of nailing those most impressive of skilful...

DiRT Showdown Review

 

Those of you that feared for Codemasters as they ditched action games in favour of a sole focus on the racing genre, you can be at ease. This is, after all, what Codies do better than anything else, and although DiRT Showdown isn't exactly the first...

Ramping into the arena and smashing your opponent out.

DiRT Showdown (Xbox 360 / PS3) Review

 

To the smerk of rally fans, the "Dirt" series races back to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 platforms. Known for its polished and adrenaline fuelled gameplay, racing fans start your engines; its time for a showdown.

smash-up demolition is sadistically fun ; excellent production, “Showdown” has style ; the online additions make the experience more enjoyable ; two player split-screen supported

audio can get “under your skin” easily ; although we get an extra mode - 'Joyride' is forgettable ; where did our old “Dirt” game go - more rally please ; needed more diversity

Codemasters takes a detour from its rally racing core to trade paint demolition style. In theory, everyone loves a good smash-up once in a while, but please leave that for other games. With core rally games disappearing from game shelves, we could...

DiRT Showdown Review

 

Does the spin-off live up to the standards of its predeccesors?

DiRT Showdown is hands-down the most fun I’ve had with a racing game, let alone any game, in a very long time. While you’ll find yourself playing a lot of the same game types over and over, every event is unique and the addictive gameplay and bright,...
