Summary: DiRT 3 is an awesome game, and it is awesome because Codemasters actually listens to its fans. Traditional rally events are now firmly in the forefront. The X-Games attitude is mostly gone, though the events are still here, and the menu resembles the clean look of D1 rather than the mess that was D2. It also has to be said that the addition of Gymkhana is going to surprise people with how fun it is. The presentation is amazing.
Excerpt: Rally cars just got even dirtier with Codemasters’ new evolution of their Dirt franchise.

Excerpt: Sadly, with all those speed signs dotted about the roads and the increasingly annoying speed cameras placed in the best places to ensure you’ve been reading them – joy riding just isn‘t an option and for good reasons of course. On or off road is always the choice and the Colin McRae series has always been keen to offer the latter with Dirt 3 being no exception. Will it offer enough to keep us buckled up for the long run?
