DiRT Rally Review Summary

MightyCritic Consensus

DiRT Rally maybe very inaccessible to many because of its deep rally car mechanics. However, critics are saying that those who commit to the game are in for a fantastic time with gorgeous aesthetics and visuals. But again this should be for fans of rally car racing already

Critic Reviews for DiRT Rally

Codemasters goes hardcore with this no-frills, punishing off-road sim, resulting in its best game in years.

8.9 / 10.0

There's a specific corner during one of the German stages in Dirt Rally where your co-driver will supplement his flurry of warnings with a professional request: "Be brave." It's a slight left kink, framed on both sides by half-buried stones. To be honest I'm not certain what it is about this corner in particular that warrants the added advice – there are plenty of deceptive corners in Dirt Rally you can take faster than you'd expect – but "be brave" potently sums up how you need to approach Dirt Rally. Dirt Rally is a brilliant looking and incredible sounding racing sim that feels absolutely outstanding, but it won't tolerate the timid.

Dirt Rally transcends its simplistic presentation to offer one of the most engaging and dramatic representations of the motorsport yet.

An honest, often brutal celebration of rallying that will exhilarate racing fans but intimidate newcomers.

One of the best driving sims of the new generation, and although it still lacks content in some areas the console versions are just as good as the PC.

Dirt Rally isn't deep in every area, but the gameplay alone makes this my favorite rally game
