I have been playing this for a while now and all I can say it is great. I find that its variance of game terrain and modes is awesome. I love the on the edge snow rallying and then you can just go around drifting Battersea park. Its a great game and will last you a long time

Overrated an not as good as its predecessor. It is rather dumbed down for the masses and this is noticable with it's "intuative" triangle menu system. Gone is the caravan and the race paddock, map and everything else that made YOU feel like the driver. The courses are more or less the same (I'd say 8 unique tracks from memory) making the game highly repetetive thorughout the 4 stages plus the additional focul ones. Online is a mixed bag with many turning the game into destruction derby and there's no way of choosing a local server with the whole automated system. The only saving grace for this game is its dedication to the rally aspect of racing and fancy DX11 visuals.

Hands down, a fantastically fun driving sim with excellent visuals and ambiance and sound. A nice range of cars and adjustments you can make with challenges to make things interesting. The main menu is a bit awkward to use, as if the designers chose the most artistic method in which to achieve something that would alternatively be simple. After you get pass the archaic main menu and sub menus, the game itself is great, for example the rallying is much easier with the in game directions, these can be turned off, and the handling is a great like the previous titles. Get this and Dirt 2 when ever they are on sale and you will have a great time.
A fantastic racing gameShreyan | Nov. 21, 2013 | See all Shreyan's reviews »
Dirt 3 is the successor of Dirt 2. The game has a new feel to it and the menus and all have been completely red-designed. The graphics have been improved and the locations have been very nicely crafted. The game contains your standard fare of trailblazer races,rally,head2head etc. The main highlight is gymkhana where you have to do donuts,spins,jumps and drifts to rack up points. It is a lot of fun. The game also supports local split screen play with another player. The graphics are good and the cars sounds distinct. AI has also been improved. One complaint with the game is that it does not have enough tracks. If you are out in the market for a good racing game, take this one for a ride.
Fun to pass the time, levels aren't well done though.Thousandforms | Nov. 19, 2013 | See all Thousandforms's reviews »
There are two key things I feel I should say:
Firstly: it looks great in game, the menus are a bit gimmicky and its a shame they don't let you take a proper look at the cars. but they don't look 'bad'. The gameplay looks great and that's what matters!
Secondly: The levels suck, you have 1-6 and it just seems to take x amount of seconds off each time (of your opponents finish time) if you're any good you'll just max out, I race on 5-6 always and don't settle for less than gold. admittedly I keep the racing line on but turn everything else off... Still it doesn't feel as fluid as it could. Also the mini goals in each race aren't affected by the difficulty level, I've never not got them!
Overall its good to pass the time, do a few races here and there and it keeps going for quite a while, but if you want to choose cars based on stats or anything like that, then it's not for you.
