4.5 Dirt 3 Istanbul2005 | 01/12/2011 | See all Istanbul2005's reviews (2) When playing Dirt 3, it's context has to be considered. The dynamics of the game and the driving itself have improved no end since the first in this series. It's a great looking game, with satisfying handling and a great range of tracks and cars. That being said, the frequent Gymkhana events may prove divisive and the 'Pro Tour' career mode is short. Online is dead, unfortunately, with very, very few players on at any time. One thing Dirt has addressed is the lack of pure rally in the previous game. A good game, but feels more clinical than previous iterations, with something lacking. Codemasters are a great racing developer though, and I'm sure the next Grid game will be excellent. Decent.
