Rally racing at its best
Great physics in handling , and damage . Sound is awesome and realistic. Great graphics tracks and cars . Lasting appeal good but gets boring after three times around on single player . Don't judge 360 version reviews the PS3 version is a lot better . ( handling physics are excellent )
Best Rally Game To Date
I have the demo and its a great game. I've noticed from the other reviews a lot of people are complaining about the physics and saying motorstorm is better on the basis of "fun". Of course motorstorm is going to be more "fun", its an arcade style game. It's sole purpose is to be fun. Dirt is a rally sim, its supposed to be realistic. As far as physics, I rally my subaru wrx and i can say that the helmet cam view in this game gives the perfect sense of what it is like to rally race. The way the cars slide through the turns and weight transfer is as dead on as i've seen in any other game. not many games respong realistically to a scandanavian flick(turn technique for rally) like this game does The graphics are excellent. The music is pointless and simply background to the sound effects like most racing games. Only downside to this game is that they dropped Colin McRae's name off it because few people in America know who he is. Excellent game hands down.
If you love Rally like I do, then this game is near perfect. The graphics on the demo are great, the car/driving physics are what we have come to love about the codemasters rally games. I guess this is the replacement for Colin's game, but its a worthy one. Bottom line, if you like Rally, and your not a casual player, you will be sporting some wood. I'm a bit torn on this game vs. the new "sega rally revo" game, but I will probably get both I guess. If you only want to buy one, then I would rent them both...as they come out at the same time if I remember correct.
Not for everyone
I recently downloaded this game off of PS3 Store and let me tell you, i found this game to be boring and just plain bad! The graphics were good but thats all it has, its only looks nice-doesn't feel nice. Motorstorm is way better and trust me on this if u want a fun racing game go for Motorstorm.
the demo is great! the killer aspect of this game will be the rally portion. you have a copilot (i guess thats the name) and you drive throuhg a country side just like a real rally. if you have a ps3, you owe it to yourself to get this game or at least the demo
I've played many of the Colin McRae rally games and they are all great. I can't wait to play Dirt, I just got the Demo of the game yesterday for my PS3 and it looks really good, I can't stop playing it. All the Colin McRae rally games have had that realism of real rally in them and that is one thing that makes them so great. With the Realism, Detail, and now all the different types of racing in it this one is going to take them all I think.
Not for people who can't drive
It's more realistic than Motorstorm and nothing like need for speed. Better, More life like and a lot more competitive. Atleast the cars are real and track are real unlike motorstorm. That is good too but too fake. Only for rally fans mostly. Especially for colin mcrae rally game fans. besides this game sold 500,000 copies it's first week on the 360 so it will be the racing game by the end of the year. much better than forza, pgr.
this is just like moror storm but a little more realistic and a little more different. it looks longer, yet a little easier. its going to be like a need for speed game on the dirt
Motorstorm is better
This game is just another version of motorstorm, just using real cars. I already own motorstorm and i played the demo for this game and motorstorm is way better
Don't let the demo fool you
I own the 360 version. Yeah, I too downloaded the demo and didn't like the game. But I got it anyways and found it to be a smooth game. Yes the controlling takes some getting uses to. But once you get it down pack, the game can be fun. The only thing about the 360 version is there is no split screen play. But you can play online. As far as who's graphic are going to be better between 360, ps3, and the pc. I would say 360 and ps3 have been neck and neck so far. The graphics are wicket no matter what system you roll with. For those who are not sure about the game. Rent it first, and get the feel for it. For the ps3 owners, I hope with the delay, you do get the split screen play. The ps3 has the power to do it. Hope codemasters honors that power.
