Colin McRae: Dirt PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Since its inception the Colin McRae Rally series has been one of the finest for nerve shredding driving, and its rather lengthy lifecycle is testament to this. Colin McRae Dirt is the latest game in the series, and the removal of Rally from the title suggests that the game is more than a rally game.

DiRT

8 May 2009
  • Conclusion: One thing I can say for DiRT is that aside from being the most beautiful, it’s among the most all-inclusive Rally games to date… Sure, car setup is nothing new but DiRT takes it a step further by actually providing real-time advice from Travis and friends should you want to make extra sure that you’re set for the terrain ahead. I also really appreciate the diversity of events rather than the usual parade of checkpoint-based trials.

Colin McRae Rally DiRT Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: This is a game that once you pick up, you’ll love. Even if you’re just a casual fan of driving games, we recommend you pick this up. And if you love your driving, then this is a cert, as its quite simply one of the best PS3 racing titles currently on the market
  • Pros: Realistic damage, In-depth career mode, Plenty of unlockable cars and liveries
  • Cons: Online mode could be better, No "real" arcade feature

DiRT

Playstation Illustrated
5 December 2008
  • Excerpt: One of the unique features of DiRT is the treatment of its User Interface (U.I). DiRT 's menus and other U.I. features are handled in what is best described as what people were expecting Vista to look like. All of the menus are displayed as arrangements of 2D screens displayed in 3D space.

DiRT (PS3) Review

411mania.com
5 November 2008
  • Summary: DiRT does a lot of things right, and offers a lot of different variety. The graphics and menu presentation are second to none, and the crashes are awesome. But a horrible online mode and a number of problems in key racing elements like handling keeps this game in mediocrity. Motorstorm does off-road racing better and provides a crazy environment, and that’s why I just don’t feel safe in giving DiRT the greatest score ever.

Colin McRae: DIRT Review

VideoGamer.com
21 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Rallying is a motorsport that seems tailor-made for video games, yet its thrilling high speed racing around the most perilous of courses doesn't seem to get as much attention as the Gran Turismos and Ridge Racers of this world. Colin McRae: Dirt combines the precision and concentration of the most hardcore sims with the thrills and immediacy of the best arcade racers, and throws in a stunning next-gen engine.

  • Excerpt: (released here in the US sans Colin McRae, which still strikes me as odd considering the man should be post-humusly honored with as many titles as possible), but the extra time spent on the game was more than worth it. Built on Codemasters' Neon Engine with help from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, it's not surprising that the PS3 version is the definitive one, but what Not one of the modes -- which range from massive big rig races to high-powered semi runs up Pike's...

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
25 September 2007
  • Excerpt: I can't start off writing this review without mentioning the tragic loss that the rally world was struck with last week. Rally legend Colin McRae and his five year old son passed away as their helicopter crashed. McRae has been regarded as one of the greatest drivers in the world, and his longtime association with Codemasters and their Colin McRae games (including DiRT) has made him an even larger icon.
