The original Dirt was a fantastic game. It had great driving physics, graphics, and a slick presentation, all of which conspired to create one of my favorite racing games of all time. Dirt 2 eclipses its predecessor on every front, and packages it in a modern, accessible package that race fans of any gaming pedigree are sure to enjoy.

Minor problems aside, DIRT 2 is everything racing fans will want from an off-road racer. The driving is fast, fun and be tailored to your skill level. Hardcore fans will work hard shaving split seconds off their best times, while novices can still work through the career and have fun with their fiends online. Wrap up this enjoyable rally experience with the best racing game visuals we've ever seen and DIRT 2 becomes a must-buy game.

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.

What you've got here is essentially Race Driver GRID torn from the tarmac and thrust into an ultra-competitive off-road environment. This is a Very Good Thing because not only is GRID one of the best-looking games ever made, it's also one of the most enjoyable racers we've ever played.

DiRT 2 is an absolute triumph, and anyone who had a hand in its production should be very proud of themselves. Please, keep doing this. Keep honoring the memory of Colin McRae with outstanding videogames that capture the spirit of what he did. Continue this kind of sky-high quality and you've already got my money waiting for the third installment.

DiRT 2 is a gorgeous driving experience featuring lush terrain, sharp reflections on hoods and in puddles, and a brilliant lighting engine. Codemasters maintains its affinity for flashy menus with big block letters placed throughout the trailer you call home. The vibe is distinctly more catered toward an American attitude, with constant sponsorships from the X-Games and a greater focus on US drivers like Ken Block and Dave Mirra.

Though the first game in the franchise didn’t have a clear direction for itself, Dirt 2 is outdoor racing across various types of racing events tied together under a cohesive extreme sports presentation. More importantly however once you get into the race itself the pop rock fades away as does the extreme aspect, instead letting you concentrate on the racing action that is just as skill-based and technical as any of the Colin McRae games were.

DiRT 2 is a worthy successor to the original, getting practically everything right. While I would have liked to have seen a greater emphasis on more technical rally racing, I had a blast with every aspect of the title. From the solid visuals to the sweet tracks, DiRT 2's got a lot to love.

DiRT 2 moves the series in the right direction, but it falls short of the excellence Codemasters have demonstrated they are capable of achieving. The graphics are brilliant, and the art style and effects are often sumptuous. The rally events truly convey a sense of speed and lack of control that seems true to life, but the buggy and truck events are marred by finicky controls and a less enjoyable racing experience overall.
Víctor Manuel MartínezSep 14, 2009
DiRT 2 es, por tanto, un juego de carreras terriblemente divertido y espectacular, una delicia para los aficionados a la velocidad y uno de los mejores del año en su género. Completamente recomendado dejar atrás lo que esperábamos de un juego que está bajo la sombra del nombre Colin McRae y dejarse llevar por la velocidad, las curvas cerradas, los coches impactando y los pedazos de carrocería volando por doquier.

DiRT 2 consigue algo que parecía difícil, mejorar su brillante primera parte. Con esta entrega la saga de conducción de Colin McRae consolida una de sus mejores entregas de la historia, y nos ofrece el mejor videojuego de off-road de la actual generación de videoconsolas. DiRT 3 tendrá el listón altísimo.

Colin McRae : DiRT 2 tire un grand bénéfice des deux années de développement qui lui ont été consacrées. Techniquement en avance sur la concurrence, il sait imposer son éclectisme avec efficacité et s'avère être un digne successeur du premier volet. Celui qui pourrait être simplement baptisé DiRT 2 tant il tranche avec la série Colin McRae s'impose donc comme le jeu de rallye le plus complet du marché. A n'en pas douter, les amateurs de tout-terrain doivent lui accorder toute leur attention.

Ondanks dat het oude WRC-gevoel met Colin McRae in de hoofdrol niet meer aanwezig is in de game, is het Codemasters gelukt om een geweldig spel neer te zetten. De game draait niet meer alleen om rally, maar bevat nu veel meer soorten racetypes. Het spel is hierdoor toegankelijk voor iedereen. Mede door de mooie graphics, leuke details en goede gameplay, is Colin McRae: DiRT 2 een echte toptitel die iedereen in huis moet halen.
