DiRT (Xbox 360)

 

Fans of Codemasters' Colin McRae rally racing series are in for a surprise with the publisher's newest title, DiRT. DiRT has more in common with Digital Illusions' Rallisport Challenge series than the Colin McRae games of old, putting a greater...

DiRT 3

 

The DiRT series has continued the tradition of the original Colin McCrae series marvelously while also featuring some of the most impressive menus in gaming. The first entry had sleek menus, while the second had a realistic festival setup and now,...

DiRT 3 has some rough edges but remains a worthwhile purchase for longtime fans who crave more of the racing action that has made the DiRT series the premiere rally series on the market, but newcomers should go with one of the prior games. Partly...

DiRT Showdown Review

 

Codemasters may work its magic on a lot of racing franchises, but one in particular that has really come of age is DiRT. Originally conceived as Colin McRae Rally, the series has grown into its own with a series of “extreme events”, but ones that don't...

A variety of events await you in Showdown, including terrific Hooligan races, where you keep up with others through crazy stunts and fast driving, as well as Smash Hunter events, where you run through objects in a pre-set race, with better success...

DiRT Showdown

 

Ever since DiRT 2 brought off-roading's 'extreme' aspects to the fore, embracing drivers like Travis Pastrana and Ken Block, the series has increasingly divided fans who've been screaming out for a return to the rally roots of old. There are those that...

Codemasters has delivered once again with DiRT Showdown. It's another superlative racer, even if it is a little one note. Unapologetically brash, bold and loud, DiRT Showdown is Codemasters' racing id unleashed. And it's freakin' great.

DiRT Showdown Review

 

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...

Dirt Showdown Review

 

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...

DiRT 3

 

Despite loving DiRT 2 for what it was – a sublime off-road racer – I moaned about it a lot. I could be often found skulking in dark alleys at night screaming “Where's all the traditional rally!?” at the top of my lungs whilst knocking back as much...

DiRT 3 is Codemasters’ finest attempt to totally obliterate the competition in the off-road racing genre, but it seems once again that the title suffers from a lack of direction and concentration at... Ooohhhhh, look! A rainbow!

DiRT 3 Review

 

When DiRT 2 came out a couple of years ago, it blew us away. Codemasters once again improved on its rally-racing model, while adding some personality and online options to make it infinitely replayable. That said, we couldn't help but wonder how far...

Despite a few vehicle crashes here and there, the car handling is top-notch, and we had no problem dominating corners within a matter of miles and coming across the finish line as a winner. Kudos to Codemasters for leaving these options wide open for...

In the realms of racing games there has always been a fine line between sim and arcade; between hardcore and casual; and of course between rally and conventional. Codemasters has...

Technically Astonishing ; Best Menu System Ever ; Tons To See And Do ; Vast Array Of Events

Multi-Player Is Disappointing ; Cars Do Feel A Bit Floaty

DIRT

 

The leap to next generation gaming consoles presented Codemasters’ design studio a golden opportunity to re-invent the McRae series to target a broader audience while likewise giving faithful rally diehard fans something new. With DiRT, they’ve...

More inviting to non-rally gamers ; Slick in-game, menu visuals ; Vehicle and race-type variety

Online mode a letdown ; Framerate issues ; It's racing; can grow tiresome

DiRT will never be put on a plateau alongside the powerhouse Forza and Grand Turismo franchises, but as a re-invention of the niche Colin McRae series, has carved out a much larger audience than it ever enjoyed before. Xbox 360 Achievements play a role...
