  • Summary: After rally fans whined about the attitude of and Gymkhana events in , Codemasters wisely decided to split the series between dedicated rally events and everything else. As a result, DiRT Showdown is a sort of lowest common denominator demolition derby arcade-style game where chaos and destruction in spectator-friendly arenas is the name of the game. And it is darn fun. Lots of event types. Great presentation. And no stuffy attitude about "proper rally" racing.

DiRT Showdown

Game Over Online
1 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Since its debut five years ago, the DiRT series has become one of my favorite racing franchises on the market. Its slick menu system immediately helped it stand out, and its rock-solid rally racing carried the torch laid down to it by the defunct Rallisport Challenge series from the previous gen. Showdown changes things up from rally racing to a more demolition derby-style.

DiRT Showdown Review

VideoGamer.com
24 July 2012
  • Excerpt: DiRT Showdown is one answer to an important question: how do you make a multiplayer-focused racing game? We've all been there. Heck, I was there just the other day - take a racing game online and it's more daunting than trying to play Counter-Strike and StarCraft II simultaneously while somebody rubs jam into your eyes.

Dirt: Showdown (Xbox 360) Review

22 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Ah, another DiRT game, how I was excited by you. When Dirt: Showdown was released I specifically requested the assignment to review it. I was a massive fan of Dirt 2, completing it fully, and somewhat enjoyed Dirt 3, despite some missteps. This new game is ostensibly a spin-off of the regular Dirt franchise and hopes to take it into some arcade like racing and the like. It’s not “Dirt 4”, but is trying to be its own thing.

  • Conclusion: Miss; Annoying narrator/commentator, and the little customisation available is hard to find. Career might be too short for some players. Need; Customisation, especially vinyls and car setups. Customisation, especially vinyls and car setups. Not to mention a simulation mode with time trials on real courses.

  • Conclusion: DiRT Showdown breaks new ground for the racing genre. New event types set it apart from other games in its field, but a lack of traditional aspects holds it back from extended player engagement. More tracks and vehicles would have provided a solid premise with the adrenaline rush it needs to maintain the excitement. The game modes don't prevent Showdown from becoming boring after only several hours in, so the thrills are short-lived.
