Reviews for DiRT Showdown

My first racing game!

This DiRT game is very different than others, Codemasters have gone in a different turn with this game and I think it's the best racing game they have created, I really like the style, features and music that DiRT Showdown had compared to the other racing games from Codemasters. You have stunt races, Survival mode in which you run away from other opponents (bots) in arena-like map trying to survive until the required time, and way more game modes!


The game plays good. Compared to earlier releases, this one is more arcade, the controls are going more easy and the win factor is nitrous. Only thing I liked is Gymkhana sessions and the BIG DERBY. 80% recommended. If you don't like racing simulators then I don't recommend this to you, only if in case you like derby stuff then you can get it.

Varied but not much of a race game anymore...

If you do not know Dirt Showdown yet and you think that this is a rallye game, turn around right away. It is all except that. It has 8 ball races, demo derby, gymkhana and few more standard races. You can buy some cars as you progress, however this has almost no impact since you can boost them all to almost the same point. So the worst car can be upgraded to compete against the best. Each of them has few paint jobs (around 6-8) and this is all. As stated above, there are few modes, divided in 4 championships. However, each of them are relatively similar. The mode I have prefered is the demo derby which is nice since there is none existing that I know of. For the rest, bleh...

A chaotic game for Ken Block Fans

If you ever wanted to play a game where you could do what ken block does, then this game is the one for you. It has all the drifting, donut-spinning, action of a Ken Block video plus demolition derbies, wrecking races and stunt courses. The game is chaotic in that there is non-stop action going on with timers pressing you to go as fast as you can. The graphics are nice, the gameplay is solid and I did not encounter any bugs or glitches. The multiplayer is surprising fun as well with a good number of event types to compete with other people in.

I enjoyed this, and i use mouse/keyboard

Not a bad little crash up demo derby/racer, it has all the things a game needs, multiplayer, challenges, career mode, 60fps, but in the end it really made me want Wreckfest to be finished sooner.
