4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best racers out there March 5, 2010
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
+ Idiosyncratic driving mechanics based on the car
+ Beautiful scenery and geometry
+ Overall great racing game
+ Very stable (never crashed once)

- No snow tracks. The last rally game I bought was exclusively because it had snow tracks. Snow is beautiful and an integral part of rally. How could they miss this?
- Need to sign up for a Windows Live Account to play online
- Annoying unnecessary & unskippable animations (I don't want to have to go from each gig scenery to my trailer every time I finish a race) in the menu AND at the beginning of each race (I don't care about who the AI thinks is the favorite to win the race).
- Game controller vibration feedback not supported, can't call the pause menu with controller buttons and I can't navigate in the main menu with it. (I use the most popular game controller.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Decent Racer December 10, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, I am guilty of being biased towards simulation racers -- Richard Burns Rally, NR2003, Live for Speed for example. Naturally I am bored with racing games that water down the difficulty by making the cars easier to handle, have the ability to rewind time, or don't have in-depth setup tweaks and fuel/tire management. I dislike these games and label them with 'arcade', which in my mind has a negative connotation to it. Dirt 2 is one of these games, but unlike the others that have left me bored in the past, it is actually rather enjoyable. So much so that even though it's still far from being a true simulation, I don't think it's fair to give it the same title of 'arcade'. Rather, it's simply a 'racer'.

If you want this to be a simulation of dirt racing, you will be a little bit disappointed without a doubt. And if you wanted nothing but loads of point-to-point rally racing, you will also have to keep waiting for such a game to be released. But if you're going to avoid the game because of those reasons alone, it's your loss really, as you're missing out on some pretty fun action. I know it has legendary Colin McRae's name on the title (at least in the European editions), but suffice it to say the 'realness' aspects of the game make it seem like it should be Dave Mirra's name instead. That's not a potshot, it's just what the game is intended to be: intense action sports in a X-Games sense, in this case in the form of off-road driving.

There are a little over half a dozen classes of cars to race off road with, and no shortage of liveries. From Robby Gordon's Hummer H3 complete with the Monster Energy logos to Colin McRae's No Fear ride -- you will have plenty to choose from as you finish the game's main campaign called the 'Dirt Tour'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Graphics! December 28, 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This review is for the PC version. I am running Windows 7 Pro (32 bit), with an Intel Core Duo E8500 at 3.16GHz, 4G RAM, Radeon 4850 video card, and 24" Dell monitor at 1920 x 1200.
The graphics on this game are amazing! The cars look fantastic and the dust kicked up by cars in front of you are so realistic looking. I find myself losing concentration at times and just enjoying the graphics.
I think the PC version on a decent PC looks better than the PS3 version.
As far as game play I haven't tried the online mode so cannot comment on that but playing against the computer opponents is pretty fun. The realism seems to be just right (you can set the level - I have it set to Serious). I am not a hard core simulation person but I immensely dislike arcade style driving games. This game is way above an arcade style game. The force feedback effects are great. You can really tell when you are losing grip on the front end because of loose gravel.
Anyway, a very well done game. Keep up the good work Codemasters!

3.0 out of 5 stars Crashes Constantly August 6, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love playing the game..................when it works. It crashes constantly on my Windows 7 64 bit machine and the only way I have found to fix it, although temporarily, is to completely remove and install again. The problem seems to be during saves and I think it has to do with the Windows Live thing. This would probably be a great game if it wasn't for the fact that you must be signed into Windows Live in order to play and save your progress.

Removing and installing is time consuming enough but each time you start the game, you must wait for a series of videos before getting into the game.

I would give this game five stars if it wasn't crippled with Windows Live.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great game with a little something missing. June 26, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought the game a while ago and since have completed it twice its that much fun. What it lacks in car mods in depth car tuning and car custom visuals it makes up for in just hours and hours of fun. There is a career mode and you do get to buy cars and buy upgrades to move cars from say rookie to pro and from rally to rallycross. There is no in depth upgrading like an shift or gran turismo. The visual car mods is limited to changing liveries, the toy on dash, and the stuff hanging from your mirror. Never really cared for all the visual customizing that came in the need for speed series but some people love it and will spend hours on it. What i did miss though was the upgrades to the cars and having to pick on a light budget what to upgrade and what can wait. The tuning is a very simple but effective slider bar over the major tunable items like spring siffness, ride height, gear ratio, diff lock, brake bias. All are overall you can say put a lighter spring in the right front or just drop the right height in the front but it does work and it does make it easier for people that don't know what all the different things are in a setup screen. The difficulty is very good. you can set it from win every race and be able to spin out a few times to still win it all the way up to making you have to test and tweak the chassis setup to get it just right and still have to work at it and take several tries to win every race. The graphics are beautiful and the physics are just outstanding. The game is missing a lot of rally time which is what i really enjoy. It's a lot of buggy and trucks at stadiums and city rallycross tracks. Which don't get me wrong is a lot of fun and a good challenge as well but i wish there was more rally. I hope you will all check out this game. Ignore the shortcomings and you will have endless hours of fun. It can be played over and over and over and still give a good challenge and a lot of fun.
