One of the best off-road racing games.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that while rated "Everyone," this racing game received a warning from the ESRB for mild language ("hell, "bummer" and "butt" are notable examples) as well as mild violence (crashing your car, truck, or buggy into others) and an alcohol reference (one of the drivers says something about looking forward to drinking champagne after winning a race).

DiRT (X360) - Review

VGChartz
10 April 2009
  • Excerpt: DiRT is a continuation of the Colin McRae racing series which was based on the World Rally Championship, a rally sport that is perhaps best known in Europe. Whilst those roots are very much on show in DiRT, the developers have decided to diversify the amount of racing types available in order to broaden the game’s appeal (in particular, to appeal to an American audience that previous games in the series had failed to capture) and as well as a change of name the series...

DiRT Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Once strapped into any one of DiRT ’s amazing earth boggers, it’s immediately apparent that Codemasters has built upon its years of doing rally-style games. Physics and handling systems are definitely dialed in, with a system that is tough, but fair. DIRT will surely reward drivers for being smooth, cautious and attentive to their co-driver’s commands, but go at any event erratically and things might end early.

  • Conclusion: The format they use is very understanding as it really is a timed event. Graphics were great. the races were memorable. Pikes peak hill climb full is STILL my favorite. The only reason i got rid of this game on Goozex (my tag is elronin) is becasue i requested the sequal and cannot wait to get it. GET THIS GAME!! GET THIS GAME! GET THIS GAME!

Colin McRae DiRT (Xbox360)

  • Excerpt: It saddens me to even attempt the review of this game where the passion and energy might not be true in the future. Colin McRae passed away not long after the release of this game, but boy, did he leave us gamers with something to remember him by.

Colin McRae: DIRT Review

VideoGamer.com
15 January 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, but also the thrills and immediacy of the best arcade racers, with a stunning next-gen engine to boot.

  • Conclusion: The whole single-player experience of DiRT is great but we can’t say the same for the multiplayer mode. First, you are only limited to rally and hill climb. Second, there is no way for you to pick specific cars or tracks that are available offline. Third, there is no online racing. Still, DiRT is an amazing off-road game in terms of graphics, damage modeling, sounds, and single-player experience.

  • 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. Xbox 360 Achievements play a role in that success, but there’s definitely several hours of fun gameplay to be had before it’s time to move onto something else.
  • Pros: More inviting to non-rally gamers, Slick in-game, menu visuals, Vehicle and race-type variety
  • Cons: Online mode a letdown, Framerate issues, It's racing; can grow tiresome

  • Excerpt: Anyone who is a rally racing fan, and who enjoys videogames, knows that there have been slim pickings for videogame versions of this racing series. The main stay of console rally racing has been in the form of either the long running Colin McRae racing series from Codemasters or the two time published Rallisport Racing from Microsoft. The former has always been more of a simulation experience while the latter has been arcadeier.
