4.0 out of 5 stars DiRt 2 11 Sep 2009
By J. Hull
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been playing around on this game none stop since its imminent arrival through the post very early yesterday morning, and I have to say I have been pleasantly surprised with the overall quality. I am one of the people that has been following the Colin McRae games since the original on the PlayStation, and so have grown familiar to the European style of rallying down dirt tracks with a co-driver reading out the instructions. Since the original Dirt game of this generation, however, Codemasters have decided to push away from this to a more Americanised X-games style of off road racing. This isn't really a bad thing as previous McRae games have felt a little disjointed from the action - especially in the more recent years. This time, you are well and truly in the thick of the action, and the game really makes you feel it.

First of all the menu's this time take place around the crowds where you will move the camera around your trailer, where you select your tracks, to your garage where you keep all of your cars, and also select your courses from the map that is laid out on the table in your trailer. This sounds like a very simple addition, but you will be surprised by how much more involved you will feel, and it really keeps you going. You get phone calls to your mobile from other drivers who will fill you in on all the latest on racing, cars and countries, and you will also be able to modify your cars with everything the outer pain job to dashboard items and even furry dice that hang from your mirror.

The gameplay has been improved a great deal this time around. Codemasters have clearly listened to fans thoughts and complaints from the original game, and I think the Grid outing has also helped in the further development of how the cars control.

This is a pretty standard racer game but the different styles of racing and tracks are opened up gradually as you progress in experience. Some races and tracks are fairly easy others are very difficult to master (or maybe thats just me!) As you acquire more points more venues and race styles per venue open up. Challenge races etc all hekp to add points and points allow you to buy new cars etc. The background coaching and dialog is helpful going into each event for the first time, it pays to listen! It is worth exploring the trailer too for hints and tips. Of the 3 racing games I own this is the one I return to most often.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not going to harp on about, what could be construed as, the more negative aspects of this game that have been covered in detail elsewhere such as the overt Americanisation and move towards an Off-Road "Motorstorm" theme rather than pure Rally - minor gripes if one sees them that way. Other particular minor gripes would be the lack of split-screen multiplay (as ever) and the somewhat dubious damage model (at times). Cars are generally constructed of steel, fibre-glass and carbon fibre, not plasticine.

What I will focus on is the aspect of the game which Codemasters have, in my opinion, improved most of all. GRID is a fantastic racing game but, to many casual gamers (like me), it was simply too frustatingly difficult. Even on the "Basic" mode of difficulty, one had to drive on the absolute edge and beyond and nail a perfect racing line just to stay with the rest of the pack, let alone win a race. Spin off and it was game over, unless you used the Flashback feature.

Guess what! In Dirt 2, we have an "Easy" mode which means just that - Easy to win races. We have a "Casual" mode which is best suited to casual gamers right through to the insane level of difficulty you can get in GRID. So, anyone who parts with their hard earned cash for this product can enjoy it and feel confident of getting through the Tour - it's how it should be isn't it? Codemasters get a big gold star off me for this and, as long as they keep to this model for all their future racing games, I will be a lifelong fan.

In summary, a hugely fun and accessible Racing Game from one of the leaders in the market genre. Highly recommended to ANYONE, like me, who's a petrolhead gamer but has a life outside of the Playstation Network.

A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Stunning. Do I need to say any more? Well, I thought it summed the game up pretty well but I guess I do...

The game is based around you, a rookie rally driver travelling the world in your camper van in search of fame and glory. The "RV" is your menu, and you basically stand in the middle and use the right stick to pan around, which is quite interesting as the graphics in there are incredibly detailed! You could spend hours just exploring the menu! The whole game is basically a career mode, but you can do time trials and free races from the Events section. There is a very good online multiplayer section but no split screen offline multiplayer unfortunately!

Graphics
The graphics are incredibly detailed. The scenery looks complete and polished, with sharp colours and textures. I don't know why people moan about the frame rate in this game, it's fine! Honestly! The only downside is the cars themselves occasionally don't look so good. The headlights look more like stickers, with no depth unlike the rest of the car, and the wing mirrors show only block details, with all the cars looking like shapeless PS1 style boxes. This, however is a minor drawback and doesn't take away any enjoyment from the game whatsoever.

Gameplay
The gameplay is, to be honest, baffling. Not in a bad way at all, but in a very good way. It's baffling because it is so enjoyable. There's nothing groundbreaking and revolutionary about the gameplay, but somehow it is engaging and completely un-put-down-able. I've seen criticism for the gameplay as "completely unrealistic", but, in my eyes, they couldn't be more wrong. To begin with it might not be what you expect from a rally game, but as you get into it you realise the only reason it feels unrealistic is because of what we're used to.
