Dirt Rally 2.0

Staying Focused

by Matthew Kato

8.75
Concept

Add more career-type elements to the racing, which remains the real meat of the franchise

Graphics

The game is gorgeous overall. Objects occasionally pop in, but it's not distracting. Lens flare and other graphical effects, however, can force you to favor certain cameras depending on the situation

Sound

The co-driver's pacenotes are informative and excellent, even including this quip: "Is that a puncture on the right rear?" He knows damn well it is

Playability

Even without the luxury of being able to rewind after crashes, the game has enough assists and other ways to customize the difficulty so you can enjoy it at any skill level

Entertainment

Codemasters delivers another captivating rally title that will have you swearing in fear and delight

Replay

Moderate

Efficiency is the goal in rally racing, from your co-driver's no-nonsense pace notes (while under duress, I might add) to the fix-only-what-needs-fixing-now scramble of repairs between stages. Even when you're hurtling down a country road in Poland reacting at speed to the semi-unknown, moving the steering wheel only as much as you absolutely need to is the difference between surviving to the next turn and sending yourself into a race-ending skid. This model of efficiency gives Dirt Rally 2.0 focus, channeling your efforts in the right direction and guiding you when you need it most.

Codemasters' titles from the last few years have presented their own career mode wrinkles. Dirt Rally 2.0 certainly features a more fleshed-out racing organization than the first title, complete with staff to hire and car upgrades, but it isn't the same as those in the F1 series or even the core Dirt franchise. Dirt Rally 2.0 is not as involved as those other Codemasters titles, but I appreciate that it cuts to the chase. Upgrading your staff gets you tangible improvements. Instead of a nebulous two-percent increase in performance, for instance, an upgraded staff takes time directly off your repairs and penalties for flipping off the track. That kind of specificity spurs you to put your credits where you need it most.

Upgrading your car parts centers on each car individually. For instance, your rallycross car in particular wears through the clutch and dampers faster, so those are the areas you can upgrade first. While there's something to be said for the freedom to do whatever you want, at the end of the day I had more credits in my bank to spend on getting other cars and upgrades because I didn't feel pressured to spend them on stuff that didn't make a material difference in the end.
