Review DiRT 2 is a loud game. It blasts rock music in your face and then bombards you with the heady electricity of a big race event. It's also the most immersive racing title you'll ever play, dropping right into the thick of the pre-race activity where you make preparations from inside your very own private RV trailer. In DiRT 2, you are a rallying star in the making...This is off-road racing X-Games style, taking its cue from the first DiRT, moving further away from the series' pure rally roots. DiRT 2 encompasses a variety of off-road race types, from Rally Cross races, point-to-point Landrush events and more. The first McRae title to emerge since the legendary rally driver died tragically, DiRT 2 is a fine tribute, starting you off by bestowing you with his famous No Fear branded Subaru Impreza he drove to win the 2006 X-Games, before hurling you headlong into the racing world he became synonymous with...There are 100 events to beat in DiRT 2, taking in nine stunning hot spots from around the world, so there's a whole load to see and do. Eight different race disciplines mean that you can pick and choose the type of race to best suit your mood, ranging from the straightforward arcade thrills of Gatecrasher - where you drive through breakable yellow barriers against the clock - or the raw mud and gravel rallying experience, just like the McRae games of old...DiRT 2 is without doubt the most comprehensive and utterly playable off-road racing game we've ever played. The overall racing experience is never anything but pleasurable, the depth and range of challenges on offer lending massive longevity and the presentation is also nothing short of exceptional. A pitch perfect balance between immediate arcade playability and detailed realism make DiRT 2 a rally game for every race fan out there. Put simply, this is without doubt the best racing game you're likely to play this year.

Review The era of the arcade racer many of us grew up with is over. E3 was a revelation: more than a few new series revved their engines therein, spiritual successors to arcade cabinet dinosaurs and subsequent biological re-imaginings of the genre tearing up the show floor's competitive track while vying to place highest for our attention.DiRT 2, on the other hand, is a comparatively quiet and traditional ride. And as much as I might be intrigued by the unique approaches seen in Split Second and Blur, it'd be a disservice to just blow past a more grounded racer like DiRT --'cause go***mn, is this game good...It just requires some skill, finesse, and yes, real practice. When every slide or cut through a sharp hairpin run can make or break you, the power and consequence of every curve and crest on a course should you fail to take it correctly quickly becomes apparent. It's just one more testament to Codemasters' racing pedigree. DiRT practically lusters with polish, even when kicking up treaded mud...The game is also a painstaking and loving tribute to Colin McCrae, giving you the whole rally package. The global DiRT tour has enough meat on its bones to keep you satiated for a long time, with events in everything from rallycross to the dune-buggy friendly land rush, as you ascend the ranks all the way to the X-Games (and beyond). Whether you like rally or not, don't miss this one.
