I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY IS EVERONE GIVING DIRT SUCH A LOW RATING..THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!...ITS SO REALISTIC.. THIS GAME REALLY MAKES U FEEL LIKE YOUR IN THE DRIVER SEAT OF A RALLY CAR ... THE GRAPHICS ARE REALLY GOOD THE CONTROLLERS ON THIS GAME IS SUPER GOOD... I THINK THIS GAME SHOULD GET AN 8 BY EVERYONE.. MAYBE THEY SUCK AT THIS GAME AND THATS WHY THEY GAVE IT SUCH A LOW RATING.
When I first saw and read about this game before playing it I suspected that this would be more of a racing game vs. being a simulation with time trials, ability to fine tune your vehicles in every aspect, etc. Overall Dirt is a decent game if your a fan of time trials like in grand turismo. If you are a big fan of time trial rally type racing then by all means this game is for you. The switch races(not sure of actual name) where you race one lap on the outside track and your opponent is on the inside track then on the 2nd lap you switch were by far my favorite. Unfortunetley all you are able to do online is time trial type events which is a major blow to the true potiential of playing this game online.
The graphics are awesome from the detail on the car damage to the driving surface it all looks great.
I have never driven on dirt at almost 100 mph but have a go-cart doing about 30+ and the feeling seems very releastic...well at least the closest I have played to date. The ability to fine tune your shocks, tire pressure, and so much more is also a great feature.
I myself do not see alot of replay value in this game. Yes there are TONS to in career mode, would say around 100 races/45 cars between 11 tiers gives an abundance to do but due to the fact of not being able to actually race and bump against your opponets online; this game just does not match up.
Not much of a story to this one seeing it is a simulation type racing game. You are trying to unlock tiers by gaining so many points in races in each tier to move up to the next one...so on and so forth. No special CG for beating the game or anything. Just race, buy new cars, fine tune setups, and race.
