    Waste of time: go play DiRT 2.

    This was of great disappointment to me. DiRT series used to be my favourite racing games. I have all 3 of them now, and I can say for sure that the third is the worst. There will be huge loading times, annoying ver... Read Full Review

    The main Dirt Tour mode is arranged in seasons where a certain number of points need to be achieved before the next season unlocks. Like Dirt 2, there's the standard Rally, Rallycross, Landrush events alongside the new a... Read Full Review

    A racing game for everyone and worth getting

    Dirt 3 gives gamers a new look at how to make a game accesible to virtually anyone and be good at this game. The game has no story mode, but a progressions system and really drops the player right in to the gameplay. It'... Read Full Review

    If Codemasters' rally-driving franchise was human, it would make an ideal candidate for a TV show such as the X Factor.

    Originally Colin McRae Rally, it had to overcome the tragic 2007 death of the man whose name graced it (although it had already morphed to Colin McRae: Dirt) and, more recently, reinvention was required after the appeal ... Read Full Review

    Best in series and best in show Dirt 3 is the racer you want.

    Dirt 3 is an excellent addition to Codemasters series of racers. I personally believe it is the best game Codemasters released just before GRID which I loved, I am a huge fan for cars whether urban circuit or off road ra... Read Full Review

    Is that all this game has to Offer?

    DiRT comes up in our minds like a very high quality accessible rally simulator. Dirt 3 is completely the same game as its predecessors, no improvement whatsoever, well, except for video presentation. Just after a few hou... Read Full Review

    Way off the original series

    I thought that with that good rating I would be at least amused. Having played CMR 2,3,4 and Dirt 1 I expected something totally different. The game has took a turn for the worse and it's focus is Ken Block and his video... Read Full Review
