DiRT Showdown – Review (360, PS3, PC)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: DiRT Showdown, a racing game with delusions of grandeur attached to muckiness, twisted metal, and engines designed to give teenage boys erections as rigid as a Porche’s tail pipe. However, it does boast a very impressive collection of automobiles and game modes to use them in. We’ll begin with something obvious: the graphical attributes of your motor collection and racetracks are glistering, flashy, and nothing short of what you expect a racing game to have.

  • Pros: +Great racing mechanics, +Improved stunt mechanics, +Impressive graphics
  • Cons: -Hit and miss demolition derbies, -Annoying announcer, -Frustrating Hoonigan competitions

  • Summary: Showdown takes the franchise on a new destructive course. Unfortunately it doesn't take long before it crashes straight into a brick wall.

DiRT Showdown review

GameZone
13 June 2012
  • Excerpt: To clarify right off the bat, DiRT Showdown is not your typical DiRT game.  For years, Codemasters has been perfecting the art of the rally racing game, starting with the Colin McRae series and eventually moving onto the DiRT -y path.  But with Showdown , it takes things a little more extreme, somewhere along the same lines as the original MotorStorm game.

  • Conclusion: And whilst online might be the icing on the cake rather than the core of the experience for some, I’m confident that DiRT Showdown has enough to offer long-time fans of the genre or racing game newcomers alike. The likes of Flatout and Motorstorm have provided ample competition in the mud-filled Americana stakes previously, but there’s something about the driving model in Showdown that satisfies in a fashion that few other games manage.

  • Summary: DiRT Showdown is the first game to hit shelves since Codemasters’ recent rebranding as Codemasters Racing, and it really shows the benefits of a developer single-mindedly pursuing quality in one particular field. Like its predecessors, it favours speedy conflicts across international tracks. For the most part, the challenge is just right – early races put you through your paces with cars that are a pain to control, have slow acceleration and low top speeds.

  • Excerpt: Man kennt das: Nach dem Start eines neuen Spiels, ploppen die üblichen Standardfenster auf dem Bildschirm auf. „Sie wissen hoffentlich, dass Auto-Save aktiviert ist?“ Ja! „Und wenn Sie online spielen möchten, dann müssen Sie jetzt den Code eingeben!“ Okay. Aber kaum ein Titel hat uns bislang derart penetrant mit der Nase auf Online-Funktionen gestoßen wie DiRT Showdown. Mit gleich drei Anfragen in Folge versucht Codemasters Arcade-Racer uns ins Netz zu locken.

DiRT Showdown

3 September 2013
  • Summary: 'Is DiRT Showdown DiRT 4? Nee. Oh, is het dan een download game, zoals Burnout Crash?' Ieder gesprek over DiRT Showdown begint ongeveer zo en ook op die laatste vraag is het antwoord 'nee'. DiRT Showdown is niet DiRT 4 en ook geen download game. Showdown ligt gewoon in de winkels. De game neemt eigenlijk alle minder serieuze modes uit de vorige DiRT-games en propt die in 1 game. Verwacht dus veel crashes, explosies, vuurwerk en vooral heel, heel, heel veel chaos.
  • Pros: Verslavende multiplayer, Toffe multiplayer modes, Besturing superstrak, Optocht aan gekke auto's, Lekker sfeertje
  • Cons: Singleplayer valt wat tegen, Rubber banding maakt game minder spannend, Joyride niet boeiend, Meer expansion dan volwaardige game
