Good racing game, terrible Windows Live requirement

A.R.G., Amazon

  • Summary: Overall this is a well done racing racing game, with very good graphics for its time period. My family has has enjoyed playing it a great deal. I personally think a steering wheel controller is almost a necessity for this game, but an x box type controller would probably work. The keyboard would be almost impossible, and not very fun. The "windows live" system detract greatly, since you must log in and be online.

Not bad - Not Great

  • Summary: I haven't tried a dirt racing game since the old Dirt series several years ago and they were terrible. This one is pretty good. The graphics aren't as good as some of the other newer racing games, but overall they work. It's not buggy (with the patch) and game play is straight forward. Just what youy would expect in a dirt racing series. There's several types of racing from BAHA to Arena and everything in between.

  • Summary: Great game for the $, lots of fun! Steering can be a little hard, but so is racing on dirt. It uses the same engine as the new F1 game, and both are great.

Great game

  • Summary: I like this game and also have it for the PS3. However, for the PC version of the game, installation is good, but if you have ATI Catalyst software working in the back round of your computer, the video after the car introduction would be destored and would fliker. The only way to fix this is to go to System Configuration Utility and fix the ATI Catalyst Control Center, this restart your computer. After doing this it the vido would be displayed normally.

Fun to play with some flaws

  • Summary: Dirt 2 is a "mostly" dirt racing game with a few pavement sections on some tracks. There are a wide variety of vehicles and the track selection is adequate, but not overwhelming. The game has very good graphics that are enhanced further if your system supports DX11. The effects are rather nice when driving through the mud/water or through the dust from the car ahead of you. The transitions from sunny areas of the track to shaded areas are well done and realistic.

  • Summary: If Codemasters would have given us the option of setting our own weather this game would have been nearly perfect.

Dirt 2

  • Excerpt: "I'm not usually a fan of racing games. I like playing some of them but I’m so bad with them that I usually end up getting stuck at some point along the line and have to give up. So you’re probably wondering why I bought Dirt and the fact is I didn’t, I got it free when I bought a new graphics card and after loading it up, it’s made me want to give the genre another chance. Plot: Well it’s a racing game so there isn’t really a plot to it but you ...
  • Pros: You get to travel all over the world racing on tonnes of different tracks
  • Cons: You can't play the game without a Windows Live account and would of liked more car tinkering

  • Conclusion: Right lets get on with the positives... game is top notch excellent for pc gamers who use stearing wheels... the old collin rally games were alful conrtols cars didnt seem to skid they were on the same spot and it was the scenery that passed you. so great gameplay last for hours many races at diffrent venues and different styles of racing... some of the battles for the first corner can be annoying.
