DiRT 3 offers up a well-rounded package that is inviting to both rally fans and racing fans alike. Those new to the crazy automotive world of rally racing will also enjoy what is offered here. With great graphics, solid sound, and some very compelling and addictive gameplay, including a well-implemented multiplayer mode, the cost of this game is well worth the price of admission.

Yes, Dirt 3 is probably one of the best rally racing games to tumble out of Codemasters fevered hands for a long time. Arguably better than Dirt 2 and packed with more fun modes than you can shake an angry Stig at. This is probably one of the most fun casual and hardcore racing games we've had the pleasure to sit down and review and definitely more fun than the standard fare. We've had our Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (aka Cop Burnout) and our Forza 3, but Dirt 3 sits just between the two with enough fun for the casual crowd and enough depth for the more hardcore obsessed, it's a fine achievement and one worthy of play regardless of your gamer type. Give it a go and you may just find you become a convert.

The biggest problem that I have with Dirt 3 is that it doesn’t feel all that different from Dirt 2. Yes it adds weather mechanics and night driving, but other than that the game feels very similar to its predecessor. With that said Dirt 3 is still an awesome racing game that I recommend to any racing fans. Dirt 3 puts a big emphasis on rally racing and nobody does it as good as Codemasters. Dirt 3 continues the formula of being a mostly simulation racer with a few touches of arcade style racing for good measure, and it all comes together as one of the best racing games this generation.

Comparé à Colin McRae DiRT 2, DiRT 3 n’est peut-être pas la révolution attendue. En effet, les tracés proposés sont bien moins techniques, les zones de jeu moins nombreuses, sans parler de l’ambiance sonore qui n’est malheureusement pas au rendez-vous. Pourtant, force est de constater que ce nouvel opus arrive tout de même à se démarquer de par la qualité de son rendu bien plus réaliste, de son animation sans faille, de sa très bonne durée de vie, ou encore de son gameplay bien plus précis tout en restant accessible. Comment également ne pas mentionner l’arrivée du gymkhana, mode de jeu fun seul ou à plusieurs, d’un mode écran partagé (enfin !), de la gestion de la météo, ou encore d’un système permettant de sauvegarder directement sur YouTube les moments clés d’une rediffusion. Une fois encore le titre de Codemasters fait office de référence dans le genre des jeux de courses automobiles tout-terrain, que nous aimions jouer seuls ou entre amis.

Dirt 3 sees the series grow up and deliver more than ever. It manages to please fans of the series without compromising the accessibility that has made the series so popular in recent years. Every event is hugely entertaining, including the new Gymkhana modes. Surprises such as fun multiplayer modes ensure that Dirt 3 is not just one of the best off-road racing games, but one of the best racing games full stop.

DiRT 3 is Codemasters’ finest attempt to totally obliterate the competition in the off-road racing genre, but it seems once again that the title suffers from a lack of direction and concentration at... Ooohhhhh, look! A rainbow!

Was hat Dirt 3 also den Award gekostet? Es sind vor allem die Auswahl und das Design der Strecken: Vier Schauplätze für Rallye-Events sind zu wenig und dass man bei den wenigen Etappen pro Wettbewerb meist nur zwei bis drei Minuten unterwegs ist, wirkt auch angesichts der üppigen Ladezeiten wie ein schlechter Witz. Wo sind die umfangreichen Meisterschaften mit mehr als drei Mini-Etappen? Wo ist die Service-Station, in der man seinen beschädigten Boliden unter Zeitdruck reparieren muss? Wo ist die Rückkehr zur klassischen Rallye, die man im Vorfeld versprochen und mit den alten Colin McRae-Titeln noch zelebriert hat? Dirt 3 macht Spaß, keine Frage! Es gibt einige Momente, für die man den Titel lieben kann. Aber der inhaltliche Schritt zurück scheint Codemasters schwerer zu fallen als sie es zugeben wollen...

Still, for the price most retailers are selling this for, even from the core game you can expect hours of rewarding tail-happy gameplay both offline and on.

DiRT 3 is not just a racing game; it’s an all around unique racing experience that can be a party game or one that serious players can get into while people just looking for a little fun will have a more than expected blast.

DiRT 3 fait partie de ces jeux de courses assez prévisibles mais terriblement accrocheurs. Techniquement très réussi, le jeu de rallye parvient sans mal à passionner le joueur qui aura tôt fait de dévorer un mode Carrière un chouia impersonnel. Si le gameplay arcade reprend fidèlement les mécanismes du second volet, le contenu a lui gagné en diversité grâce à l'apparition du gymkhana, du multi en écran splitté et des courses en conditions hivernales. Une bonne publicité pour toutes les formes de rallye !

Ultimately it was the repetition that killed my enjoyment of DiRT 3. The game doesn’t offer the variety of the first, nor the stark change of direction offered by the second, and ends up feeling like a satisfactory but bland follow-up. Technically, and in terms of design and presentation, there’s very little that you can fault Codemasters for but in a competitive marketplace the game doesn’t do enough to set itself apart. It’s neither bigger, nor badder than any of its closest competitors.
