It's hard to believe that they can add a few small things and take away a few things from Dirt 3, and call it a new game. Just like Dirt 3, this game is complete crape! Why did they have to add the lame obstacle coarse events, why not add to the Dirt 2 game instead. Better yet, why they wont make a new Grid is beyond me. The new Dirt is boring, and the online game is crape from the Euro connections you have to share with. Dont waist you time or money.

this game wasn't too bad the races were fun, especially the figure 8 races. handling was pretty tight on most cars. upgrading system was ok, upgrades are expensive and its not deep in any right, but it did make a big difference in races. there are plenty of bad points though. the game is even more frustrating when your not hooked up to xbox live. the first 2 minutes every time you turn the game on are spent yes and no'ing through literally 12 pop up windows before you get to the start menu, then 2 or 3 more when u enter a race. the biggest problem with this game is replayability, of which there isn't, and especially if your offline. races in career mode are raplayable, but with no winnings if u already finished first. so there is no way to get more money to buy all cars (achievement) or upgrade anything at all (2 achievements). i somewhat wonder how much better it would be with xbox live but u have to buy the online pass from them just to play online and i wonder how much longer it would even be fun. so in all a fun game but very short game.
This game is NOT Dirt 4, so if you looking for it, it has not come out yet so don't get Dirt Showdown and expecting it to be Dirt 4, bcos it isn't, and a lot of people need to realize that and stop giving this game a low rating bcos they doesn't understand that.
This game is called Dirt Showdown, a fun and an easy to get into party game for casual racers who didn't like the difficulty level of Dirt 1-3.
This game is a great addition to the Dirt franchise and proves to use once again why Dirt is the BEST racing game franchise on the market today.
