I have been a fan of the Dirt series since their first game, and the sequel only got better. Both games definitely had things they needed to add and change to get it to be "just right". When I heard about Dirt 3 coming out, I ran out and pre-ordered it as soon as I could. I didn't want to waste any time with renting it because I knew it was going to be amazing. And I was right.
Dirt 3 brings in all the best aspects from the first two Dirt games, and improves on them. The physics are amazing, as are the graphics. When you start racing on all different surfaces (dirt, mud, wet and dry tarmac, snow) it only gets that much more amazing. Dirt 3 also focuses more on the rally racing and rally cross/cross-over races.
This game has an impressive car selection, including cars from the infamous Group B Rally of the 80's (which has since been banned) such as the Audi Quattro S1 and the Ford RS200. I do admit, it would be nice if there were more options when it comes to the trophy truck and buggy races, but overall, they did a great job.
Definitely worth my money. Even more worth renting if you aren't convinced to buy it....yet.

I refuse to drop another dime into a greedy game developers hand, after dropping 60 Bucks for the game they demand I continue to shovel money into thier mouths by making a good 40% of the cars, content and courses "Available on Live marketplace" No. No I say. I'll not only not purchace any content just to play the "Core" game. but I'll never purchase another product from your companies again. If everyone would do the same, these pathetic money grubbing developers might get the hint.
I was very excited to play the new dirt. I've played each one and have been very happy with them. Dirt 3 however was a little bit of a let down. I was truly expecting more from the actual game play (what more is there for a racing game tho). Very well made game, very fun, lots of interactive stuff and very high definition racing.
One thing that I did notice that I really didn't enjoy was the repetition of the races and the overall indifference between races. Very standard and straight forward. (I guess some people like that) It's not a terrible thing but just something to consider. Also it took a little while to get the steering down pack but once I did, it was off to the races.
Over all good game. Fun, very challenging, very good quality!
