With the price of showdown falling, I would recommend this game to any burnout fan that sees this at a low price. Remember though, as with almost all games nowadays, an online pass is required which will make buying a used game not really an option.

Dirt: Showdown Dirt: Showdown is the latest installment in the off-road racing game series Dirt. This article will focus on how this DirectX 11 game performs on current GPUs. The game was released on 31 May, 2011 and received a lukewarm reception by...

Ordinary game modes, unchallenging Gymkhana and broken collisions. It's an average racing game that's thin on unique content. Showdown is a forgettable blunder for a great...

Courses repeat over and over and the difficulty never gets too high where events become a challenge, thus leaving the player almost bored with the task of completing each event. It looks nice, but it's clearly a shell of its former self, with no real connections to the series that everyone knows past the name itself.

A fter spending a few hours playing Dirt Showdown, it's hard to believe that this is what the Colin McRae franchise has evolved (or mutated, depending on your affinity towards rally games) into. Yes, this is just a crashes-and-donuts, summer...

Codies said openly not too long ago that being a racing game developer was the new priority. With a respectable stable that includes the (relatively) high end in F1, the rally scene in Dirt 3, the time comes to fill the less sophisticated end of the...

DiRT Showdown is a dramatic departure from what fans have come to expect from the series. It's turned away from a focus on racing other cars in a frantic dash for the finish line to instead focus on destruction, and lots of it. It's a change...

This week I've been playing through DiRT Showdown, the latest racing gaming in the DiRT franchise from Codemasters. Codemasters are well known for their racing games, with many great racing titles already firmly under their belt over many formats...

It's a spin-off weaned on destruction derbies and deep-fried snacks. A game where the road to victory is littered with the dented and busted wrecks you've rammed off the track.Showdown's driving challenges veer from speeding around tracks...

If you're looking for the next great rally simulator, you won't find it here. But to ignore Dirt Showdown because of its arcade styling would be to deny yourself one of the most satisfying of pleasures: that of mindless, over-the-top, and--above all--deliciously addictive destruction.

There’s a good game in here, but there just isn’t enough of it. It’s perhaps eerily fitting Codies shipped this Dirt 3 follow-up with the subtitle Showdown; it may have swagger but this town really ain’t big enough for the two of them.

This game makes so much sense! Totally separate to the fairly safe bet that it'll shred the marketplace for this genre, it reeks of realised desire from Codemasters themselves. If they ever tell you in interviews that this is “the game they...

Being released on the new Codemasters Racing label, fun is what the focus of today's preview is all about and in DiRT: Showdown we dispense with the normal time trials and rally gameplay associated with the franchise, moving to a much more arcade...

Bleibt nun also abschließend die Frage, wie DiRT Showdown in unserem Test abschneidet. Zunächst mal ist es schwer hier eine objektive Meinung zu bilden, da der Spaß am Spiel sehr stark vom persönlichen Geschmack abhängen...

DiRT Showdown is een vermakelijke racer, met een simpele maar prima besturing, mooie graphics en een zeer leuke multiplayer. Voor fanatieke gamers is het spel misschien wat aan de makkelijke kant. Dit zorgt er aan de andere kant wel voor dat Showdown...

Staat Dirt tegenwoordig voor een revival van Destruction Derby? Dirt Showdown is de laatste telg in de Dirt-serie. Normaalgesproken is Dirt een serie die rallyfans aardig kan bedienen als het gaat om autogenot op gravel, sneeuw en asfalt. Showdown gaat...

Rijd je rivalen met bumperwerk het decor in tijdens brutale races op verraderlijke circuits. Laat de adrenaline door je aderen gieren en de vonken van je koetswerk spatten wanneer je om de eerste plaats vecht in de demolition derby's. Of haal het...
