Reviews for DiRT Showdown

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.


Forget about realistic driving. Forget about simulator game. Be prepared for... showdown! I like the idea of spin-off games, which change so many things that it could have totally different title, but sometimes these aren't good. How is Dirt Showdown? Well, it's hard. I mean, it's fun for really short time. It's very easy and quickly gets boring. Sure, it's flashy, commentator is trying to be fun (but after few times you will notice it saying SAME THING ALL OVER AGAIN) and have few interesting modes, but that's all. If you are lover of racing games then maybe you would want to play it, just be prepared for something different, and sadly not better.

Wreck them

First of all, I think the biggest mistake was to put the name "Dirt" in this game. There's nothing that can be related to what made Dirt games famous among racing fans and this choice left many people disappointed in the Dirt series. We can only hope for a better future for the upcoming Dirt. The TOUR is really, really short. I mean it took me at least twice the time to finish Dirt 2 Tour or Dirt 3 tour. I had no idea they cut so much racing from this game. Not even a 10 Hour long tour, it's a bit embarrassing. While I'm not sure why, I couldn't make a single Challenge but this might be on my end or just bad luck. Servers never were available. Also, after finishing a race if I decided to press "Send Challenge" the game would crash on me. A bit of search in the Steam Community and I can see there were more people with the same issue. Another less good point is about the commentator which is really, really bad. The choice of words are bad, the vocabulary is very limited and the jokes are, well, they are no jokes at all. However, I still managed to find good things too. The selection of cars are good enough to keep you happy, experimenting several cars while upgrading some of them. The game can look, really, really good. Believe it or not, but I remember when 4K TV's were released on the Market, this game was one of the games for them to show "pretty visuals" on their TV's while having a powerful PC hooked up. You can see this specially when playing at night, in Tokyo which is simply mesmerizing. The lights, the wet floor and the drift really made the game shine during these particular races. So why did I recommend this game? If you can find it for the right price -and never pay full price for it- Dirt showdown is a small but safe bet. Again, I recommend playing this game if you get it for a very kind, cheap price. The game is no more than a snack to eat between meals but while it may satisfy you, it will not last longer if you are chasing to fix your racing needs. Here's hoping for a better Dirt in the future more focused on pure Rally events and races.
