“The game’s promotional site presents visitors with a pair of animated assets to put one’s ink on.”

JeffLevine: Amazing graphics and a fun and unique feel to the racing and great online options, but not enough tracks and an annoying x-games atmosphere and buddy system that gets on one’s nerves the more you play. The first Dirt had better tracks and I really missed the hill climbs, but this game has better racing.

Ste: I’m struggling with this so far; I have to put it on easy just so I can win some cash. There’s certainly lots here, even if some of it is just silly add-ons like winning new dashboard toys and horn sounds. Control of the cars seems a bit too slippy, and sometimes I feel the connection between road and tires is lost. This isn’t a problem with in-car view, of course. But hey: what’s with the unskippable video clips and bollocks chatter?!
