5.0 out of 5 stars Best Racing game since Gran Tursimo 5!, 24 May 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: DiRT 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
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.

LENGTH: 9/10

The tour mode provides an excellent amount of events i'd guess it will probably last about 10-12 hours and after you have completed the tour mode the multiplayer should keep you hooked as flying through tracks to beat your friends and setting new time records will surely keep you playing for the future.

GAMEPLAY: 9.5
GRAPHICS: 9.0
SOUND: 9.0
LENGTH: 9.0

OVERALL: 9.5

I sometimes find such early reviews a little annoying. How can someone know about a game after just a couple of hours.
However I found this a very informative and useful review. Looking forward to checking the game out when I get paid tomorrow

I also found this review helpful and honest, Mr White has not pretented to have finished the game already and is simply giving feedback on his impression so far. 10/10 for the review.
I am looking forward to finding out for myself now.

The game is silky smooth, just Like Dirt 2 and GRID before it. Codies know the PS3.
