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

HDR
3 October 2008
  • Conclusion: DiRT will never be put on a plateau alongside the powerhouse Forza and Grand Turismo franchises, but as a re-invention of the niche Colin McRae series, has carved out a much larger audience than it ever enjoyed before. The lack of enticing Career Mode Achievements and controller rumble knock a point off the Playstation 3 version, but like the Xbox 360 version, there’s still several hours of fun gameplay to be had before it’s time to move onto something else.
  • Pros: No screen hiccups as seen on 360 version, More inviting to non-rally gamers, Slick in-game, menu visuals, Vehicle and race-type variety
  • Cons: Online mode a letdown, No controller rumble, It's racing; can grow tiresome, Achievements are missed

DiRT (PS3) Review

411mania.com
2 March 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.

Off-Roading Bliss

4 November 2007
  • 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.

Gaming Evolution
11 September 2007
  • Conclusion: DiRT has one of the strongest graphical and realistic presentations of any racing game currently on the market. Sure there are a few issues that could have been addressed a bit more, the overall experience is one of the best within the Colin McRae racing series. Fans of the older titles will have reason enough to jump into this next-gen experience without any worries of loosing and of the staples that have this rally series one of the most talked about within the racing...

Colin McRae DiRT

CNET
27 September 2007
  • Summary: As a graphical showpiece, DiRT is an unbridled success. It also happens to be an entirely enjoyable rally racer.
  • Pros: Six distinct racing disciplines, Enjoyable mix of arcade and simulation driving, Gorgeous-looking tracks, and cars that deform and break apart very nicely, Tons of offline races to play through, The PS3 version's frame rate maintains a steady 30 fps with very few dips.
  • Cons: Cars have something of a floaty feel to them, Multiplayer options are like a cruel joke.
