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: Many years ago, I owned this game for PS3 and played it so much, I only missed out on 4 available achievements. I am a HUGE fan of CodeMasters games since Grid, and this game does not disappoint. However... I recently purchased this game again for XBox 360. I got it used for ~$30 (great value) and to much disappointment, the game does not work on my XBox. I have a black 320Gb, and am being given the "unreadable disc" error 03-57-00.
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***.
Summary: I admit to having gone backwards here. I started with Dirt 3 and after completing that I got Dirt 2 when I could pick it up cheap. Anyway, I'm pretty much in love. I really liked the follow up but this is one of my favorite games ever. I learned a lot about not just throttling every race and hoping for the best.
