5.0 out of 5 stars Best Racing game since Gran Tursimo 5! 24 May 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After playing Dirt 2 for 30+ hours i was really looking forward to dirt 3. There wasn't much hype so i wasn't sure what to make of it but after receiving it yesterday and having played it now for 4 hours i am very impressed. First to start off with the gameplay:

GAMEPLAY: 9.5/10

The handling of the cars are solid and alot better than other titles this year e.g. shift 2. The variety of events, from rally to Gymkhana, are a lot of fun. I am very pleased that it has focused alot on the rally events as that was after all the place where Colin Mcrae became a household name. From dirt tracks to snow tracks the game is consistent in handling and the overall fun of each type of event. The only thing i can criticise is the limited amount of cars but the racing element overshadows this.

GRAPHICS: 9/10

From sunset to snow flurries, Dirt 3 looks beatiful. The dirt getting lifted from the road while you are flying down the road at top speed looks even better than it did on Dirt 2. The background detail e.g. buildings, look just as good as they do on any other modern racer and the cockpit looks fantastic. While you are in cockpit view the environment looks beatiful and it looked that good I almost crashed on my first race taking in the scenery.

SOUND: 9/10

Voice acting very clear and easy to understand just like previous Dirt titles. However it does get boring after a while but you will probably be too gripped by the racing to even pay attention. Details like the crunching of packed snow and skidding onto tarmac sound solid and the sound of the engines on different cars is very well executed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome MKII 25 May 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So I'll start by saying I was a massive fan of Dirt 2. Unlike almost every other racing game I have played, it didn't become unplayable as you rose through the ranks and the cars got faster. The tracks didn't become so difficult to navigate you couldn't enjoy them, and the AI remained fair and balanced throughout. Dirt 2 is one of only two games I have achieved a Platinum trophy on. I loved it through and through.

So my hopes for Dirt 3 were huge. I wanted more of everything and to have everything finessed to perfection. Codies have such pedigree with games I was almost drooling with anticipation!

Enter Dirt 3, then, after what seems like an eternity of waiting. I plug in my DFGT wheel and steady myself...

GRAPHICS: They're nothing short of astounding. Not just because they look pretty - and my goodness they look pretty - but because everything that should collapse when you drive into it collapses. Water flows and splashed like real water, snow like real snow. The cars take damage so realistically it puts all other racers to shame and the whole look of the game is just sublime. I have to mention the lighting in this game too, as they've turned everything down to a more realistic level, giving each track its own personality. The overcast skies of Finland and the burning red sunsets of Kenya. It's almost enough to put you off as you barrel down a narrow, winding road at 120mph.

HANDLING: So I played Dirt 2 to death, I've learned a lot. I crank Dirt 3 up to Advanced where all assists are off and the AI has one thing on its mind... winning. I tried this in other racers (notably NFS: Shift) and laughed at how poorly the cars handled and how aggressive the AI became. No so in Dirt 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirt 3 Review 17 Aug. 2011
By MPH94
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have played recent games before Dirt 3 such as Gran Turismo 5 and Shift 2 and found them not to be as good as they hyped up. Gran Turismo 5 had incredible detail but was very boring at times and repetitive whilst Shift 2 had a great collection of cars (huge fan of FIA GT1 and GT3) but too aggressive and the handling was quite annoying at times. However, I think Dirt 3 is one of the best racing games this year.

Positives
+ Excellent choice of cars and tracks. Something for everyone and much better choice than Dirt 2 (especially the cars!).
+ Menu is modern and sleek.
+ Graphics are really good.
+ Sound of the cars are spot on, much better than Gran Turismo 5. Sound of tyres crunching on snow and gravel and spectators shouting are nice little touches to the realism of a rally.
+ Handling is perfect, it is manageable unlike Shift 2 at times.
+ Plenty of disciplines to choose from the old fashioned rally to the newer Gymkhana which is better than I thought. Online these disciplines are available as well as the light hearted 'Party' modes.
+ DLC's are not too bad, nice choice of cars and tracks.

Negatives
- Youtube uploader only 30 seconds. Would be better if it was longer so I could upload a FULL rally, not just a bit of it.
- Commentators a bit cheesy at times but there has been worse (ahem Shift 2!).
- Frame rate not as quick as other games, does slow down a bit when there is a lot happening at once (noticed this a few times in multiplayer and single player).
- Being very picky here but surprised there is no 2011 Citroen DS3 WRC or another S2000 car to choose. Maybe a DLC for the future?

Overall, I enjoy this game very much because it is so much fun and great to play.
