+ 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.)

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'.

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!

I haven't tried a dirt racing game since the old Dirt series several years ago and they were terrible. This one is pretty good. The graphics aren't as good as some of the other newer racing games, but overall they work. It's not buggy (with the patch) and game play is straight forward. Just what youy would expect in a dirt racing series. There's several types of racing from BAHA to Arena and everything in between. The AI is a too hard for my taste, even in casual mode, once you get a few races under your belt, the AI is just about unbeatable unless you crash them into rocks, trees and walls. To me, that's not racing, but I can see that the majority of buyers probably just want a crash derby in any racing game they buy (as evidenced in the online tournaments of any racing game). So if it's a crash derby, bull your way to the top, run 'em down kind of race, than Dirt 2 is the one for you. Plenty of tracks in many countries and really they did a lot of work on the tracks. They are hard to get through and the cars are loose (even with the very limited car settings). I think they could have done better at giving us more adjustment room for setting up (dialing in) cars, but something has always got to be missing or you wouldn't look forward to the next in the series. Overall it's fun to run the tracks if you don't mind the AI beating you most of the time.
.
Additional - I have to say that with most every game I have come across there are issues. Many times the issues are ones that we "gamers" have brought upon ourselves. Anyone with some money and enough knowhow to slap components together thinks they are computer gurus and many times they/we shoot ourselves in the foot.
