Colin McRae: DIRT (PS3)
Advantages: Fab damage modelling, lots of cars to choose from
Disadvantages: Graphics let it down completely for me, the PS3 is capable of more.
What can you say about the legendary, late, great Colin McRae, a giant of Rallying who deserved a longer life then he had, having lost his life in a Helicopter crash.
I remember Colin McRae Rally being released on the original Playstation many moons ago (I still have my copy to this day). As the Playstation has evolved though PS2 and now PS3 Colin McRae games ahve figured on each generation.
Therefore it was with a great degree of anticipation I bought DIRT, so it pains me somewhat to say that I am disappointed with what I got.
As usual the meat of the game is participating in the World Rally Championships, there is also a carrer mode which pitches you into various cars at various levels which is in effect a very clever teaching system.
However I feel that the graphics are a let down even to the extent of occasional slow down on screen, the modelling of the cars is nothing spectacular either especially when compared to the like of Gran Turismo and even Motorstorm.
One excellent feature though is the damage modelling, doors and bonnets fly off, windscreens shatter and it is possible to roll the car. You have the ability to carry out limited repairs in betwwen the stages and this does add to the games enjoyment.
Overall not a brilliant game, I just was disappointed with what I got.
Summary: A decent game that could have been better.
