Summary: This is the best racing game I've ever played for DS, except maybe not as good as Sonic All Star Racing. The graphics are WONDERFUL, the action is just as great, and its just an amazing game! Just started playing it, so it might get better as I go along!
Summary: I got the game because I wanted a rally game, and DiRT 2 is the only rally game on the DS. I was less than impressed with the qualities that were so hyped about in critic's reviews, and the bot AI is overly rude, the courses are fairly annoying, the cars are dull, and there is very little in this game which really demonstrates "rallying", other than the fact of cars driving on dirt courses.
Summary: The first 2 or 3 tracks of this game really did not look too promising. I was finding it rather stiff and boring at first, but then as you advance and earn money, you can upgrade your car, and buy new ones, and it doesn't take very long to buy the best cars in the game. Once I had purchased the top car, after about 5 races or so, things seemed to pick up and I found a lot of interest in the game now that things where speeding along.
Summary: I love rally, and owning only a Wii and a DS, I was told the DS version of this game was a better bet. I also own TrackMania DS and Mario Kart DS , as far as racing games are concerned. Here's my quick take: The racing itself is decent. It's fun to hit L for the handbrake and drift around corners, but when you upgrade your car, suddenly it won't slide around and almost becomes more difficult to control, but it's faster so you'll still win, you just feel like you're...
Summary: This game makes a good first impression with a nice clean graphic style and solid framerate. Car handling is also very good indeed. I don't like simulator physics like grid where you have to break every corner and all that. This game has more arcade handling which is a relief and i appreciate the ease of control. In fact i just let go of acceleration before a steep turn. New cars can be bought and upgraded by using money earned as you go along.
