    this makes racing games look fun!!

    usually racing games are either easy or way to difficult right? Dirt 2 seems to be just the game to bridge the gap into the harder racing games as it is a pick up and play game but also advance into harder racing style t... Read Full Review

    While the gameplay might not be as good as the classic Rallisport Challenge 2, it looks amazing and the online is great.

    I had high hopes for Dirt 2, and while the gameplay still isn't quite as good as I was hoping for, it's still not bad enough to ruin the otherwise great experience. Most of the cars handle pretty good and the tracks in t... Read Full Review

    Before Dirt 2, my favorite racing game was Dirt. Now Dirt 2 has taken its place! Its the best racing game ever!

    This game is just amazing! In dirt racing games, few have figured out that the little things make a huge difference in a game like this. Many other dirt style racing games lack the textures of what the ground should re... Read Full Review

    Great game, only lacks hill climbs.

    If you are disappointed with this game then you must be very hard to please, This is truly a beautiful game to see and a joy to play. If the developers would have included hill climbs as a race type, I would have gave t... Read Full Review

    Pretty good

    After playing the demo I wasn't all that excited, but when it came out I figured I would give it a try all the same. It turned out to be a really good game… it had all of the features that a good racing game should have... Read Full Review

    Great game is all I can say about it.

    Awesome game, very nice visuals and good driving physics. I like the progression these guys have done throughout DiRT, GRID, and now this. The game has improved through each one and this is the latest addition. I love... Read Full Review
