DiRT 2 (Xbox 360)

 

In Dirt 2, you assume the role of an up-and-coming race driver who's competing on the off-road circuit against such pros as Ken Block and Travis Pastrana for the first time. That's a daunting prospect, but one of the many great things about...

The 2nd game in the Colin McRae Dirt series. Would a non-racing fan enjoy it?

In summation, Dirt 2 is a fine continuation of the series and as great as an introductory rally racing game probably can be. I'm still not a fan of the genre, but if some friends wanted to sit down and play, I certainly wouldn't say no. For racing...

Getting dirty is still loads of fun. When I reviewed the original DiRT nearly two years ago it was considered one of the best looking games ever created. Here we...

Gorgeous visuals ; Great control ; Lots of events ; Very immersive

Sim aspects all but gone ; Soundtracks is lacking

This isn't the sequel to the FX drama starring Courteney Cox. No, it's Codemasters new rally game, Dirt 2. Adam Woolcott gets down and, dare we say, dirty with his full review.

Though some parts of the game tend to be frustrating in how poorly they were handled, Dirt 2 is still a good, fun racing game in a genre that's underrepresented on every console. This is one of those strange games that manages to exceed the sum of its...

If there's one thing Colin McRae DiRT 2 (CMD2) does correctly it's to pay tribute. Right from the start of this off road racing game it brings his name into play with fitting respect for what he had achieved in his life. Your first car in the single...

Codmasters "Dirt 2" is, without a doubt, one of the best offroad racing games of all-time.

Beautiful graphics in every possible way ; Awesome soundtrack provides the perfect blend of punk and rock ; Tons of variation with different race types ; Contains some of the biggest names in offroad racing, voices included ; Online play is fantastic...

Vehicle selection is a tad bit lacking ; For those who are not experienced, the vehicles are difficult to control ; Difficulty seems too challenging in some respects even on "Easy

If you enjoy offroad racing, put "Dirt 2" at the top of your list. If you're not necessarily an offroad racing fanatic, this game is still worth a try, but rent it or borrow it first.

Fast and dirty, Dirt 2 delivers the rally racing goods.

Fast, furious action, great physics, top-notch "X-games" style presentation

More Monster energy drink ads than you'll ever need to see

At its core, this puppy has taken its serious sim roots, mixed in a few casual-friendly options and thrown in a plethora of content (both online and offline) to keep finicky gamers interested. It kept me coming back even after failing an embarrassing...

Colin McRae: DiRT 2

 

Codemasters kicked off their racing revolution two years ago with the well received and foundation setting Dirt. A lot has changed since then and the critically acclaimed EGO Engine has gone through many iterations and improvements – some that we saw...

A definite step up from the original in more ways than one. Immersive racing, jaw-dropping visuals, an extensive career and a vastly improved online mode make up for the game's few minor annoyances... like riding in vehicles that just aren’t that fun....

Two years ago, DiRT not only continued the Colin McRae series' tradition of providing a top-notch rally racing game, but also enhanced it with incredible graphics, smooth controls, and one of the slickest menus systems ever seen in a racing game. Now,...

Much of DiRT 2 is, actually. Anyone who loved the original should pick this up as soon as possible, and if you're new to the genre, at least download the demo and give it a shot. I'm sure you'll enjoy it once you've gotten used to the controls, and...

Colin McRae: DiRT 2

 

The age old phrase ?where on earth will they go next?? has seldom been as prevalent as it has for the Colin McRae series. Back in 1998 the original Colin McRae Rally was a hit with the masses, bringing rallying into the eye of the mainstream at a time...

The more Americanised approach to the series may scald some long time fans, but DiRT 2?s core driving experience remains a consistently superb and thrilling ride from start to finish.
