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.
Great GameKevduit | Nov. 2, 2013 | See all Kevduit's reviews »
Dirt 3 gives the player a whole new depth to racing. The Racing Mechanics in this game were unbelievably realistic, and made you feel so much more immersed into the game. The soundtrack was very beautifully put together, and added so much emphasis into the games atmosphere. The Graphics for this game are absolutely amazing, and blow lots of other racing games graphics right out of the water. You can choose all the different setting for your vehicles to make them feel more like the car you'd like to drive, including your HUD, just to make things a lot of realistic. This is over all a fantastic game, and one to buy if you love racing games.
Great Rally Experiencemctron | Oct. 31, 2013 | See all mctron's reviews »
In this outing for the DiRT series, it saw a slight shedding of the X games style extremeness of previous DiRT titles. This comes with more focus on traditional rally racing. The graphics and damage where great and truly setting benchmarks for racing games on PC.
I played the game using a Thrustmaster F430 wheel, the wheel set up was fast and painless. The FFB was great and truly added to the immersion of the game. If you want to take this game to the next level bust out the wheel and enjoy. But that aside the steering was tight and shifts where fast and responsive.
The game mainly involves traditional point to point rally racing and arena lap style rally cross. The courses where nice but short in comparison to real rally racing stages and rally cross races.
Great game that falls short of being a true sim, if you want next gen Richard Burns rally this will fail you but if you want a fun as SRT would call it Sim-Cade game then this will fit you perfectly.
