After playing Colin McCrea Dirt 1 all over the Christmas period and into the New Year, I very wisely decided to invest in Colin McCrae Dirt 2 and to be honest it is absolutely the best £40 I have ever spent. I love racing games and love playing the Xbox so this game totally had my name written all over it! The best element of Dirt 2 is that even though it can be quite tough when you first begin the new tracks, it is completable and you can play at whatever level you feel comfortable at. Dirt 2 is a round the world tour so you will be racing in many different countries and the weather conditions are simulated perfectly, so watch out for the rain or ... Read the complete review

Colin McRae DiRT 2 is a straight-up incredible racing experience. Encompassing different racing styles from across the sport, DiRT 2 sacrifices some realism in favour of entertainment. The main thing that hits you when you first load up the game is the breathtaking presentation and graphics. Okay, maybe the menus aren't the best things to judge a game on, but this presentation runs throughout the game, and it really is better for it. But this would count for naught if the gameplay wasn't up to scratch, Fortunately, it is. If you were a fan of the original or GriD, then you'll love DiRT 2 - the same kind of events are in here, along with novelty ones ... Read the complete review

Colin McRae Dirt 2 Colin McRae Dirt was a pretty high quality racer back in it's time. It featured fantastic (if prone to slowdown) visuals and was a tight, if lighter, racer in its own right. A year later Codemasters delivered again with the excellent track racer Race Driver: Grid. It improved the visuals and introduced the flashback feature, which seems to be borrowed from most racing games nowadays. So it's hard not to be excited for Collin McRae Dirt 2, the latest racer from Codemasters which is gunning for a podium position by expanding the racing modes, improving online play and more. Does it take the crown or does it not do justice to this great racer's ... Read the complete review

Colin Mcrae games have had the nack of being the best rally games around for a while now, and they continue to impress people with yet another stunning gaming. I didnt really enjoy the first Dirt game on playstation 2, but I decided to give Dirt 2 a chance and I was left shocked by the brilliance of this game. It not a totally pure rally game, which may leave some fans disappointed, but the new racing modes add much needed variety to the game. The set up of the main menu is a great feature of the game which makes it unique, it consists of a caravan that you take around the world as you travel to race in different venues across the earth. When you start the ... Read the complete review

Colin McRae: Dirt 2 is good, albeit it mainstream (a little too dumbed down?) fun. As far as visuals go, my really did hit the floor when I saw this in motion. This is one mighty meaty 3D engine that Codemasters have brought to the table here. The vehicles and inverinoments look truly beautiful. This even managed to make Forza 3 look a bit dull for me, to give you an indication of how good the graphics are. In terms of gameplay, the depth of this game is akin to a paddling pool ie, not very deep. It seems as though the dveloper may have knocked it into reverse from the last game and just gone all out with crowd pleasing simple-ness. This is a good ... Read the complete review
