From the meta of running your own team and how that can affect your car performance, to the sheer variety of surprises that can hit you during a run… it’s just a beautifully dynamic racing experience, which is really the biggest game changer here

In DiRT 4, Codemasters not only managed to improve what was already great at DiRT Rally, but the addition of new game modes like Joyride and Landrush brought a more casual feeling to the game, along with the possibility of choosing between two different drive modes, for casual players and simulation lovers. The cars and locations pleases all tastes, and the track creation is something revolutionary for rally games. Thus, DiRT 4 is easily one of the best and more complete racing games ever made.

Inevitably, comparisons will be drawn with Dirt Rally, which is something I've deliberately avoided to this point. When stacking one against the other, it feels like Dirt Rally is the elder, more scholastic, and slightly serious sibling. Dirt 4 on the other hand, is the younger, outgoing sibling who, whilst not exactly bouncing off the walls, still knows how to have a little fun.

There is a lot to see and do in DiRT 4, and it is all well-designed. I feel like the career mode has a little too much micromanagement for my tastes, but I appreciate the additions. For fans of classic rally games this is by far the best it has been in years. DiRT Rally left me feeling a little empty with its focus on simulation style, but DiRT 4 strikes a nice balance between being accessible to anyone, but deep enough for hardcore fans.

Dirt 4 manages what very few racing games do. It's driving is challenging yet accessible, and it pairs this with an almost endless amount of content. The career mode is robust, and the stages are varied and beautifully designed, but the ability to create your own unique tracks using Your Stage is what sets Codemasters' game apart from every other rally game that has come before.

There are so many modes, races, and details hidden in this game that it will keep you busy for a long time. Once you start to master the modes, or if for some reason you find things are too easy, you can tune the difficulty and increase the challenge for the game. There is a lot to love in the game, and I couldn't put it down after playing for hours. It was always “just one more race”, until it was two in the morning. I'm forcing myself to put it down!

When you look back to Dirt Rally there were a few flaws that you would think would be ironed out and additional features added, well  Dirt 4 does that spectacularly well while also making it enjoyable for the newcomers who are on a journey to being fearless. Dirt 4 has redefined rally games, not sure if Codemasters know how high they set the bar now :)

Overall, Dirt 4 delivers unforgettable moments for the fans and racing enthusiasts, the experience that the game gives you is like you're actually driving the car itself. Winning is also satisfying, not because you're fast, but you're skilled. You also need to be smart on how to drive your car in different situations, and you must always listen to your co-driver. Dirt Rally was a success but Dirt 4 gives you more what Dirt Rally is lacking. If you're looking for a racing game that gives you challenges and test your skills, then Dirt 4 is your game.

DiRT 4 really does succeed in extrapolating new things from two different sides of the driving spectrum. The 'Your Stage' procedural track generator really does feel like a revelation, which will ensure that drivers remain on their toes even after clocking countless hours already. As stated, it's remarkable what this can do for drivers if they're willing to adapt and learn, and certainly helps to cultivate technical understanding and development. A more in-depth follow-up review on the PC version will be coming soon, but there's no doubt about it: DiRT 4 is one of the most exciting driving releases this year. A much-celebrated brand comes back with a bang.

DiRT 4 succeeds at taking the series to another new level which almost makes this one of the favourite ones I've played in the series. The gameplay mechanics work extremely well and I had no issues with the DualShock controller while I controlled these powerful off-road vehicles. Furthermore, there's a plethora of modes to play, heaps of cars and lots of different areas that make this title some excellent value for money. Lastly, it's not just as a rally game as the developers have added lots of fun modes and vehicles to help expand the gameplay. Then you have the daily and weekly challenges which just expand the scope of the game, including the ability of playing it in either two modes, gamer or simulation!

DiRT 4 encompasses all that it means to race. To spend hours tuning your car, taking it out for a ride to test, bringing it back in to the garage to tweak some more, and repeating until everything is perfect. To have the stressors of the day simply fall away the second the red lights turn off and you are given the “GO” light. To have a perfect run and relish in your victories, as well as to have a devastating setback at the last second, but to learn from your mistakes and carry your head high as you give it another go.

Dirt 4 is a great rally game. The accessibility it presents to newcomers, quickly transcending into more advanced driving techniques is one of its strongest features, but the thrill of the race on these unpredictable, minimap-less tracks never failed to get my heart pumping. There are some odd quirks with physics – cars have a tendency to pirouette like a ballerina from hitting a ridge the wrong way – and a too limited track creator, but these are nitpicks before all that Dirt 4 does so right. It’s time to get dirty.

While many modern racers attempt to deliver a visual showcase, Dirt 4 instead focuses on what's going on under the bonnet. Every vehicle – except those damn crosskarts – feels incredible, as if you're trying to tame some naughty mechanical beast. Each shunt deforms your car's body, each lap cakes it in dirt, and you can see your driver's head wobbling around as you drive over each bump. It's super-convincing.

Dirt Rally was easily the best rally game we had in years, but sadly Dirt 4 is a bit of a let down. The graphics may be stunningly beautiful, but the gameplay isn't nearly as fun as in Dirt Rally. A good rally game, but far from perfect.

Ultimately, it makes for a new Dirt chapter that doesn't share the ethos of its numbered predecessors, and it doesn't feel right for the game to be called Dirt 4. That's not to say the game isn't good; fans of Dirt Rally, Project Cars, and other simulation titles will find enough to enjoy here. But if you're getting into Dirt 4 to relive the joys of the earlier hits, this is the wrong game.

Overly simple and, sadly, boring game with minimum amount of game modes. In comparison with DiRT Rally, Codemasters took a step back. DiRT 4 is not a simulator, but is sure as hell trying to look like it.

DiRT 4 takes a few steps back from DiRT Rally, adds too much emphasis on an uninteresting career mode and fails to find a common ground between arcade and simulation.

A troubled game, that tries a few too many things and ends up weaker for it. Though the Rally racing at its heart is great once you strip away the Career and judge yourself based on the AI.
