Best Rally game ever
I've played Dirt & Dirt 2 and they are my favorite racing games ever,Codemasters Make the best Racing games,Like Grid and the Dirt series.Dirt3 is going to be killer because they got Gymkhana Mode and alot of Rally and I really want to play the infected game mode.
really good game
I bought this game when it first came out and love it. Me and my brother still play it almost daily because its so much fun. Its really between an arcade and sim but more towards arcade. Why? Well its because some things aren't that realistic. For example a rear wheel drive car feels the same as an all wheel drive and when flipped over you find out all the wheels are spinning not just the rear. I would recommend this but its a game that gets boring after a while and if your hardcore you get bored of using the same cars and tracks over and over. I wouldn't recommend this if you don't have a lot of games, live, or only get games occasionally due to what ever reason.
Great Rally game
Definitely a good follow up to the other 2 Dirt video games. Definitely gets the pulse pounding. The cars sound amazing, look amazing. Handling takes some serious getting used to though, coming from a Forza 3 player. The game play kept me stuck to the seasons. the different weather and tracks kept it interesting. The replays are absolutely epic, even with the 30 seconds of YouTube upload time. Sometimes watching the replay allows you to see just how crazy you were driving. Most definitely worth the money.
DiRT 3 Simply Amazing
The new gymkhana event is just jaw dropping excitement!!! Graphics are PERFECTED! No customization though...very disappointed that you can't create/customize a car, although the sponsors have cool tuned vehicles I was hoping for a game mode like need for speed underground II when you can build a car from the ground u., Definitely Buy this game I'm hooked. Gamertag for 360 is - alogic YouTube - alogix
the game lags from time to time and yes i have it on my hard drive. and you can only post 30s clips on YouTube. its just like Dirt2.
Getting Back to Rally
I have played many rally racing games over the years, mainly the Colin McRae series which became DiRT after his tragic helicopter crash. The series has always been very strong and DiRT was an astounding accomplishment (graphics, physics, menu layout, etc.). It was downright sexy! Then DiRT 2 came along...I guess I am a purist but arn't rally games supposed to be just that? I feel as though it tried to hard to fit into a mainstream extreme sports market...It had barely any Special Stages or true driver vs. the clock moments. Still a great game, I just dont feel it deserved the DiRT name. It was an arcade racer. However, DiRT 3 looks and sounds to be shaping up into a beast of a rally game. A game a true rally enthusiast would be proud to enjoy. And while Gymkhana could be considered an "EXTREME SPORT" I am totaly stoked on its inclusion into the title. Intense car control, flying down a narrow dirt road, and a bit of tarmac thrown in the whole mix! Sounds great to me! Keep your eyes on this one!
Very impressed with Dirt 3 as I expected. More tracks, more types of vehicles, different events and weather changes, not to mention faster cars as well. Overall its improved since Dirt 2. My only problems with the game is it sometimes has a slight lag on or offline and a major game freeze up. I am one of many people who for some reason my XBOX freezes up constantly while playing this game. I had to delete my game file and almost returned my game!!! Then I read somewhere that its the autosave, which makes sense because thats usually when the game freezes during autosave. I turned the autosave off and my XBOX still froze, I was very upset. Then I tried turning off the autosave AND the MUSIC. 100% sure it was the music mixed with the autosave freezing my XBOX up!!! Now I have to make sure I dont forget to save my game manually. Other than those small problems I would recommend Dirt 3, fun for people of all ages.
Great addition to Dirt franchise; with problems
Dirt 3 is a great racing game. its new Gymkhana mode and events are fun after you learn the controls and how to maneuver the car just right. I would give this game a 10 out of 10, but the voice actors become annoying, long, and boring after a while. another problem with it was that the realism is kind of lost. there is no repair costs, customization, and it lost some fun cars from the last game. it is fun to play and i like it but i wish they left some customization and upgrading in it.
Dirt 3 better then ever
after buying the 1st dirt game back a few years ago and playing the dirt 2 demo i thought it was time to buy dirt 3 and i didi i was amazed with the game immediatly after playing a few dirt tour races i was addicted the next 2 days.i beat the game then and now i only play xbox live play for the game but i still get hooked on it after a few races they have a cat n mouse mode and rally and more! i highly recommand this game to rally fans and auto racing fans.the only bad thing i thought about this game was that if you bought the game pre owned then you have to buy a vip pass for the game sepertly from the xbox live marketplace and it cost 800 microsoft points or simply $10 which sucks but what can i say other then that the game was picture perfect for me if you are reading this and are thinking about buying this game for this system new then get i think it is really well worth it
THQ and CODEMASTERS???
Ok I have been very disgusted with THQ lately and I know THQ doesnt actually make the game itself it just a publisher... but still. Well the people at THQ finally have done something right and must have bought the rights to the DIRT franchise from Warner Games. None the less CODEMASTERS is the group of individuals who actually make DIRT. Anyway DIRT 2 was amazing and CODEMASTERS really delivers when it comes to physics and graphics. With all new locations, twice as many rally tracks, changing of weather, different time of day, dusk or night racing, improved physics and the ability to upload videos straight to YOUTUBE from your XBOX 360, this game is a must have for racing fans in my opinion. Good purchase for me and for THQ.
