    I’ve been pumped about this game for a while. I loved the first DiRT, liked the second DiRT, and the third, so far, is everything that I expected it to be. The menu layout and overall feel of the game is a lot better than DiRT 2 in my opinion. DiRT 2 focused too much on the “cool” factor and rallicross, rather than actual rally racing. While I like it, it’s not what I wanted in a game. The cars in this game do not disappoint, from classics to new. While rally racing in general has felt a little boring to me lately (WRC has lacked in the variation of cars, IMO), the level of detail afforded to this project is amazing.

    The damage model, weather, environment, and car details are by far superior to the past two games. If you enjoy racing games, you will love this. If you enjoy rally racing, you will love this. If you enjoy mudding and making cars dirty, you will love this. If you have a 2-year old child who likes to eat Cheerios, you will love this. Essentially, anyone who enjoys controlling a vehicle in any capacity cannot help but love this game.

    Side note: I am still at the early stages of playing this game, so bugs and issues may come up. I will report and alter review if anything dictates a change. For now, the options seem to make this game work well for any gamer level. I look forward to finishing the career mode.

    This is how a racing game should be made. Instead of pretty cut scene videos being passed as the gaming experience, DiRT has always relied on making a game that works well to sell more copies. This is NO Shift 2, Hot Pursuit 2, or any other huge let down of a racing game.

    *UPDATE* 5/31/2011 – After playing the game for a while, I’m still really enjoying it. I am going to bring the star rating down to a 4-star on account of Dirt 3 falling into the whole “drift” phase of racing games. This annoys me because while I enjoy drifting and having fun, they make it crazy difficult for people to achieve the medals. I can hit gold after MANY attempts, but platinum… just insane. Anyway, drifting is judged, it’s not racing. They should just make a drifting game so I can stay away from it. It doesn’t take away too much from the game except that I now know there are achievements I will NOT be able to get. Also, the rally racing is a little disappointing. While I like the way the cars handle and the overall feel of the game, the rally races are all like 1-2 miles long, which isn’t much fun. I miss the good old days of the huge hill clibs and multi-mile rally races. It seems like in this day and age, DiRT 3 is no exception to this shortage of content to come out with games, leaving too much room for a full priced release to have DLC in the future. 4-stars now for making a great game that is still lacking.

    Dirt is back and this time, its back with a vengeance. Dirt 2 showed up a couple years back to dazzle us with the mainstream, flashy bigtime rally feel, leaving Dirt1′s essential based, hardcore hill climbs behind. Dirt 3 tries to take it up a notch by taking what worked in both games and intermingling them. Does it work? Lets find out.

    First of all this review is highly in depth, if you want to know the jist of things, i’ll have a small section at the end for you guys, (use “find” Ctrl + F in your browser and type in: “Wrap up” without quotes to get a summary.) Now with that out of the way, we can review this bad boy.

    Dirt 3 relies on extreme simplicity, and in a way this is great, the simplicity applies to its racing, and its approach to menus. With that said, Dirt 3 also does some amazing things despite this, because despite its simplistic features and driving arcadey style, it grows on you very quickly. Before I get ahead of myself, lets just stick with the menus for a bit.

    MENUS:
    Gone is the trailer, while I liked the trailer, it was slow, dirt 3 prides itself on navigating menus quickly, there’s career, options, my dirt etc. all at the main menu, move up and down and you’re all set to go. Before you get to the menu, be sure to put in your online activation code to unlock youtube, 5 cars and more bonus stuff like playing online, after that, you put in your name, your spoken name, (code masters is still one of the only companies that allows you to select an actual spoken version of your name or nickname) and your youtube credentials. This will allow you to directly apply things from races to youtube. Cause a 8 car massacre or just kick some royal butt and you can upload it straight to the internet. Yay, now all your friends can see how awesome you are, or how much you suck. Now, the menu is a lot like dirt 1, its a spacious nothingness with floating text, that gives way to floating triangles (pyramids) When you select these, they open up into four events, the three satellite triangles from left to right to top, unlock (in that order) based on points earned in events, selecting a triangle, opens up its list of events shown in right facing rhombuses, that describe the events, select the event, select your car, and you’re good to go. This entire process is streamlined and will take if you’re rushing a good 10-20 seconds. (main menu to race load) When you’ve beaten all of the races in a triangle, it will turn gold, and its on to the next triangle. When you’ve earned enough points, the middle triangle will open, this is the finale of the Pyramid, race it to finish off the Pyramid to turn the whole thing gold. From here on out other Pyramids may appear as you progress, but this menu is easy to get, easy to navigate, fast and easy to use. The one minor gripe I Have is livery selection. When you want to change the look of your vehicles, you have to do it in My DiRT > Garage > select class > Car to change > highlight livery to use > View car. It’s a bit irritating but its not horribly detracting. The menu before the race is straightforward as well, speaks for itself and pretty much doesn’t need much of anything, its good, it works. Moving on.

    LOADS:
    Loads in this game are infrequent really, the menu doesn’t have any lag and the load to a race uninstalled takes about 20 seconds. The visuals for the load are nice, showing the car you’ll be using, but aside from that, its a bit bland, only showing the same foreign beige space the menu resides in. The loads aren’t excessively cumbersome, and are completely nonexistent on chosen menu reload during race (choose restart race). Its instant back to the starting grid. However this does not happen if you complete a race and then choose restart, as it will return you to the staging area where you can set up your car. This offers a bit of load, but nowhere near the time it took to initially load the race.

    GRAPHICS:
    On this 360 console, Dirt 3 as a whole is a wonderfully put together game, the scenery looks very real, the dust, damage, snow, cars, and lighting are all very highly detailed, with minor jaggies throughout. Mostly the shadows in particular. The colors are rich, the bloom is relatively low, (take a look back to dirt one to compare) and the game plays wonderfully. I have had a few hiccups, but I have not had any serious frame rate slowing. Dust, crashes, bits flying off, and several cars on screen does not seem to bother the xbox’s graphics or processing units enough to lag the picture. Great job, its immersive and looks excellent.

    CONTROLS:
    Handbrake has been switched back to B. If you’re wondering why the Handbrake doesn’t work, that’s why. Odd choice going back to dirt 1 control scheme, but I guess its not too bad. Most companies use A for handbrake but its not a problem. Change views with RB, go with RT Stop with LT. Turn with Joy L. Simple controls, easy to use. Joy R can be…

    This review is from: Dirt 3 (Video Game)

    First, a little background on myself; racing games are all I play. I have been playing racing games since I was a kid, everything from the original Driver and Grand Turismo titles to my previous all time favorites, Richard Burns Rally(PC) and Forza 3(Xbox360). I play with a MadCatz wireless wheel because I’m not about to dish out $300+… In real life I am involved in the local rally community and am currently building a road course STi, so I know a little bit about how cars should behave on gravel and tarmac surfaces.

    I have to admit that I never bought the previous two Dirt titles based solely on customer reviews. I haven’t been able to play an arcade racer since I was 14, the physics and goofy gameplay turn me off where the expert physics of Forza 3 can keep my tuning and racing for hours on end. While Dirt 3 may still have its arcade-style (keep in mind, I don’t even like European-style rally-x in real life) races to please the younger crowd, the stage rallies ooze realism and clearly have a lot of effort put into the physics engine. I’m hooked!

    ~Pros~
    - Near RBR-quality stage rally simulation for the Xbox360!!
    - Awesome car selection; race everything from the same cars you seen on WRC stages to classic stage rally car legends, even the trophy/stadium trucks are a hoot!
    - Track selection; I’m not that far along in the game, but I’ve already been blown away by the rally stages…lots of effort to detail here! Nice cambered corners, ditches to hook, power poles in trouble spots, realistic crests, etc.
    - Huge event range; stage rally, European-style rally-x, drifting, gymkhana, trophy truck racing, etc. I haven’t even tried playing online yet…
    - Graphics; looks and runs great on my 50″ TV.
    - Menu soundtrack; love it or hate it, but if you’re a dubstep/modern techno fan you’ll enjoy the menu music.
    - Car tuneabilty; gear ratios, shock damping, ride height, differentials, and brake bias are adjustable and actually make a huge difference on-stage.

    ~Cons~
    - Some arcade-style gameplay during circuit races, many early rally-x races are won by avoiding the monstrous pile-up caused by all the AI racers ramming each other into the corner. Tapping other cars doesn’t seem to have much of an effect on them, but when they tap you it is fairly hard to maintain control.
    - Graphics; this is a SLIGHT complaint! If you catch the guy in front of you on stage, the dust he kicks up is pretty splotchy and makes it hard to see (in real life the dust gets crazy, so it’s not like you’d be able to see any better…). The helmet cam is a good idea, but for some reason feels “off” compared to the hood view, it’s just a little too distracting. Maybe if I “remove” the avatar hanging from the rear view and give it another try I will like it more.
    - Most cars are fairly hard to drive out of the box, which might make for a few low ratings. Hint: turn down your steering sensitivity, run the differentials fairly loose, and move the brake bias forward. Gravel and snow are hard to drive on in real life, do everything smaller and further in advance than on tarmac, use the brakes and the car’s weight to turn the car.
    - I wish the cars were more tunable… They were right to have the car setup locked (all cars are already built to perfection), but I would have liked to see a tuning system closer to Forza where I could alter my alignment geometry and tire pressure…
    - Why the heck didn’t RallyAmerica hop on this?!? I would have loved to see more American rally stages in this game!

    I just hope they release more games like this so that America can catch rally fever instead of the JDM-Y0 drift insanity that has been going around lately…
    5/5, if you like racing games, buy this now! I had to go to 3 different Best Buy locations to find this one on the shelf during Memorial Day weekend.
