Aside from a few hiccups DiRT 2 is a fine piece of craftsmanship from Codemasters. The main reason for its success is focused around the great feel of driving. Single player or online the driving just feels fantastic. There is excellent traction feel...

DiRT 2 seemed a bit of a risky move when it was first announced. Much of this was down to the unfortunate and sudden death of Colin McRae only a year previously. It all felt a little strange to have another game bearing his name despite the great man...

In Dirt 2, you assume the role of an up-and-coming race driver who's competing on the off-road circuit against such pros as Ken Block and Travis Pastrana for the first time. That's a daunting prospect, but one of the many great things about...

If you’re of the opinion that great rally drivers are born rather than made, then it’s not difficult to imagine that Colin McRae flew out of the womb sideways at 80mph, and flew out of the delivery room in a graceful arc. As a driver, he was...

Forgive the game its trespasses though, because none of this makes DiRT 2 any less the thrilling, gutsy driving pleasure that it is. There’s definitely enough here to warrant a purchase purely in the PC-specific sense, even though it may not be...

International Review By Bouweenpc on 80

De gameplay is in principe niks mis mee. In het begin van het spel is het misschien nog wat eenvoudig, maar zodra de snelheid er lekker inzit ligt de spanning hoger en is het spel ineens een stuk vermakelijker. De enige echte tegenvaller is het...
