Colin McRae: DIRT

Colin McRae: DIRT is a racing video game that was developed and published by the UK-based Codemasters. This game is the sixth installment of the Colin McRae Rally series and it features new graphics, vehicles, and audio. It also features an enhanced physics engine and the Neon Engine which was developed by Codemasters along with Sony Computer Entertainment.

Colin McRae: DIRT was released for Microsoft Windows and the Xbox 360 on June 19, 2007. In September 2007, it was released for the Sony Playstation 3.

The game offers three different single player modes. These include Career, Championship, and Rally World.

In career mode, players must work their way to the top of a race pyramid that is comprised of 11 different levels. In each level, there are several race events where players must earn a specific number of points in order to progress in the game. Only when the specified number of points has been accumulated does the next level unlock. This goes on until the eleventh level is unlocked. Players who succeed in this last level is declared the Champion of Champions. Players are able to purchase cars and liveries (skins) for the cars by winning races and earning money. In Colin McRae: DIRT, there are a total of 46 different cars and 186 liveries.

Review Summary

Colin McRae: DIRT is the kind of intense game that will excite car racing gamers/lovers. The creators of this game have a lot of experience hence, explains the good quality of the game. Both the inside and outside view from in-out the car is mind-blowing. To play a car racing game the views look are equally important. Reviewers couldn’t agree more by quoting that the visuals are gorgeous and the ability to feel the road is simply glorious. Dirt’s cars are from sports cars to SUVs to even truck of all sizes. With equally good controls to play with, player performance highly counts in this came. The background of the game is that of an arcade with impeccable track designs. A certain reviewer said that the damage that occurs when crashing your vehicle is visually breathtaking and physiclly efficient. All together the game is a string of 11 races which leads upward to another string like 10 races, then 9 and the rest as follows. Most of them are based on Time Trial. Gamers like the fact that this game is so entertaining, enjoyable and challenging in many ways that it stands out on its own from other racing games.
