Din punctul meu de vedere, jocul cu mașini al anului și cea mai atrăgătoare și accesibilă prezență pe scena virtuală auto. Abordabil, satisfăcător, spectaculos, cu grafică și sunet la înălțime, un gameplay de zile mari și câteva mici lipsuri și bucațele de prost gust peste care cred că oricine poate trece, atâta vreme cât nu caută un simulator pur-sânge. De cumpărat, păstrat pe hard și iubit.
DiRT 2 is a hugely enjoyable and well rounded game. It might not be as sim-like in nature as some hardcore rally fans may have wanted, but what it does offer is thrilling and enjoyable racing. The variety of racing events is varied enough that you won't get bored any time soon, and the multiplayer functionality provides some great experiences. The extreme sports style vibe was a risky move but it's paid off well for Codemasters, making DiRT 2 an original proposition in a genre full of titles frequently playing it safe. A fitting tribute to Colin McRae indeed.
It's not details like these that make Dirt 2 such a superb racing game though. What makes Dirt 2 so special is the fact that its multiple difficulty levels and forgiving gameplay mechanics make it accessible to newcomers while offering a significant challenge for veterans of Codemasters' Colin McRae Rally series and other off-road racers. There's also the single-player mode that spans no fewer than 100 events (often comprising multiple races), a suite of multiplayer options that includes plenty of different modes and leaderboards, and, of course, your sweet RV, which fills with souvenirs from all of the locations that you race at as your career progresses. If you have even a passing interest in off-road racing, you won't regret a second spent behind the wheel of Dirt 2.

Dirt2 is een onvoorstelbaar knappe game geworden die zonder twijfel de concurrentie nog lang zal domineren.
Out Of Eight
DiRT 2 improves upon the original game in every area. The two primary areas of concern from before, the bare multiplayer features and the unrealistic driving model, have both undergone significant changes for the better. You can actually race against human opponents over the Internet in real time (like a real racing title!), and all of the wacky game modes from the single player campaign are available, from the precise gate crasher mode to points-based domination races. Of course, you can also engage in more classic rally races and more traditional eight-car events. The narrow, realistic tracks take place in varied environments that showcase the graphics well, from superb textures to exaggerated damage and watery special effects.

Auf den ersten Blick ist Colin McRae: Dirt 2 ein herausragender Titel. Die famose Grafik und das wohl beste Schadensmodell des Genres begeistern jeden Rennspiel-Liebhaber auf Anhieb, spielerisch überzeugt das Codemasters-Werk ebenfalls. Doch nach einiger Zeit war ich als McRae-Anhänger der ersten Stunde ein wenig enttäuscht. Die seit Dirt 1 ohnehin zurückgeschraubten klassischen Rallye-Elemente werden immer mehr von den neuartigen Modi verdrängt. Colin McRae: Dirt 2 sollte eine Hommage an den 2007 verstorbenen Namensgeber sein. Trotzdem muss ich ständig mit einem VW Touareg oder Hummer Gegner von der Strecke rammen statt alleine mit einem Subaru Impreza um die Kurven zu driften. Diese Rallycross- und Raid-Modi sind zwar sehr spaßig, lassen aber den typischen Rallye-Nervenkitzel vermissen.

Wenn Sie mal jemandem zeigen möchten, was Spiele heutzutage grafisch draufhaben, sollten Sie sich Dirt 2 zulegen. Dieses Programm ist eine Augenweide! Und das ohne zur Ruckelorgie zu verkommen, wie es noch beim Vorgänger der Fall war. Auch spielerisch hat mich die Offroad-Raserei voll und ganz überzeugt. Die Rennen sind so zugänglich wie actionreich, das Streckendesign derzeit konkurrenzlos, und in Sachen Präsentation wirkt selbst das stimmig in Szene gesetzte Burnout Paradise wie ein steriler ADAC-Fahrübungsplatz. Klar, Dirt 2 hätte ein paar mehr Strecken vertragen können, Rennspieler kommen um diesen Titel trotzdem nicht herum. Allein schon wegen der coolen Netzwerk-Schlachten lohnt sich die Anschaffung.

Dirt 2 is simply a delight to see and a joy to play for anyone who’s even moderately into racing games. And that’s Codemasters’ big success here -they wanted to make a racing game everyone could get into, be they hardcore sim fans, Sunday drivers or everything in-between. It’s fast, it’s fun and it’s beautiful, so get out there and get dirty!

Достойное (и грязное!) продолжение DiRT, однако для звания зимнего хита заслуг у него маловато.
