Reviews and Problems with DiRT2

Showing 1-10 of 17

Thrilling offroad racer with plenty of depth, variety.

Common Sense Media
7 March 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that DiRT 2 is an offroad racing game. Unlike the first game in this series which was rated "E", this sequel is rated "Teen." Like some racers, aggression is often used by players and computer opponents to gain an edge. The background songs have some lyrics with mild suggestive sexual themes and a few references to drugs and alcohol, although they're not too different from what's played on radio.

  • Summary: On the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, Dirt 2 is an off-road racing game that's difficult to fault, but sadly, that's not the case on the Wii. There are some great course designs, and there's definitely fun to be had racing on them. That fun is short-lived, though, and the lack of longevity combined with subpar visuals, choppy frame rates, and inconsistent opponent AI make the Wii version of Dirt 2 difficult to recommend.
  • Pros: Some of the course designs are great
  • Cons: Environments are ugly, World Tour mode is too short, Opponent AI isn't believable or particularly challenging, Multiplayer races aren't much fun

Colin McRae: DiRT 2 [Wii] Review

WiiDS.co.uk
23 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Firstly, Colin McRae: DiRT 2 is played with the Wii Remote held horizontally, making the control method similar to that of Mario Kart Wii . Since the former is a race-simulation, and the latter being a less serious but fun-orientated racing game, what kind of similarities and differences will the two of them draw up?
  • Pros: A semi-realistic racing game using motion control, Includes multiplayer (although not great)
  • Cons: Frequent drops in frame-rate, No online modes, No customisation, Gets repetitive and boring, Feature-less compared to the 360/PS3 versions

Colin McRae: Dirt 2 Review

Nintendo-Online
31 May 2010
  • Summary: Nach dem Tod des schottische Rennfahrers Colin McRae beim einem Hubschrauberunfall im Jahr 2007 war nicht ganz klar, inwiefern die gleichnamige Rennspielserie fortgesetzt oder abgeschlossen werden würde. Ende 2008 folgte dann die Ankündigung von „Colin McRae: Dirt 2“ und die Bekanntgabe, dass das Videospiel als Tribut an die Erfolge und an die Person Colin McRae zu sehen ist.
