Summary: My partner gave me this for Christmas, but I hadn't asked for it and I had my reservations after not enjoying Grid at all (and realizing it was the same company). I am so glad I gave it a try though. There is a bit of a learning curve (as with Grid, which perhaps I haven't given enough of a chance. If I ever get bored with Dirt, I might go back), but now I find this is the game I play almost every single day.
Summary: Graphics are beautiful, even distant objects are rendered very well. Locations are gorgeous and artistic with lush trees, sun flares, flying dust and even tire tracks. The flashback concept is very unique, where if you crash or swerve out of control, you can rewind the past 5-10 seconds to before you messed up.
Summary: I love the game I do recommend that you get a wheel It adds a great deal to it I have a csr elite and the club sport v2 pedals it is awesome plus the playseatsv with A xbox360 the only thing that I don't like is no HDMI for xbox360 if you have a ps3 you will have high Definition How many people think this is bull s***.
Still up to date and fun. Get it if you can find it.

Summary: I bought Dirt 3 first and loved it - My favorite things were Joyride/Gymkana, graphic feel and music. Needs the DLC Monte Carlo. After reading reviews I decided to buy the previous version. Dirt 2 has a lot going for it too but in different areas. The races feature longer duration and more tracks without buying DLC. I especially like unlocking races/tracks and the crashes are a blast. Graphics haven't changed much except menus so it doesn't feel old.
