I've been looking forward to Dirt 2 for a while now because it's been so long since there was a good rally game and if your looking for a good rally game this doesn't disappoint. However if your looking for a realistic rally game you better keep on looking.
Dirt 2 certainly looks good, all the tracks and cars look awesome. It also has some pretty good damage and it wont take you many crashes to wreck your car.
There is a good selection of tracks from around the world. From China and Utah (America) to the big cities London, Tokyo and LA. The game has a good selection of cars too with all the rally cars you'd expect (no monster trucks though!).
It also has pretty a pretty good music. BUT you''ll hardly notice it because you can only hear music when your in the menus. Yes really, a racing game with no music in the races, meaning that the races feel pretty boring.
The other problem with the game is the terrible car controls and physics. Dirt 2 is very arcadey, meaning that it has some pretty awesome drifts, that's if your car doesn't go flying off the track and into a tree.
The last problem with the game is how short it is, you can complete 25% in one night and the trophies are far too easy.
Lastly the online so far has been alright. It's good when it's a trailblazer race and there's nobody to bump into you. But the actual races are frustrating, everyone just rams you most of the time.
Overall I really enjoyed the game, I was frustrated sometimes but that didn't ruin the game for me.
