Colin McRae: DiRT 2 [DS] Review

28 September 2009
  • Excerpt: I feel I should start with an admission.  It’s important to be honest as a reviewer, no matter how many freebies are being thrown at you mercilessly by companies.  And I’m not just saying that because no one has seen fit to bribe me in any way (for the record, I’m a medium in t-shirts and like models, toys and other random pieces of plastic crap.  Just saying).  So, a confession before we begin: I’m not really one for driving/racing games.  Not realistic ones at least.
  • Pros: Easy to get into, Soundtrack is a nice change from the norm, Game offers a good selection of events, Very in-depth track editor/designer
  • Cons: Limited soundtrack means songs will be heard way too often, Jumps between difficulties result in uneven pacing

Official Nintendo Magazine
25 September 2009
  • Excerpt: The clue's in the name. Colin McRae: Dirt 2 is the first of the late Scot's rally games to appear on the Wii, and it's about time too. The series to date has gone from strength to strength, evolving from faithful representations of rather lonely timed stages, to a series of other disciplines featuring a range of different vehicles. Now we have this, a game which basically consists of a World Tour of races through a variety of locations.

Expert Review

12 December 2009
  • Summary: Während die DS-Version von Dirt 2 ein unterhaltsamer Rallye-Racer geworden ist, haben die Entwickler bei der PSP-Variante voll ins Klo gegriffen. An die großen Vorbilder (PS3/Xbox 360) kommt keine Umsetzung heran, wer aber unbedingt auch unterwegs mit dem Game Spaß haben will, der kauft das DS-Modul. Ende der Durchsage.
  • Pros: solides Rennspiel...
  • Cons: ... auf der PSP leider nicht

Ob dieser die hohe Messlatte, die „DIRT“ gesetzt hat, erreichen oder sogar toppen kann, lest ihr in den folgenden Zeilen.
