Cast / crew
Despite a notable lack of rallying and interchangeable international locations (Baja, Morocco, China and Utah are particularly indistinguishable and there is no snow and little tarmac), DiRT 2 improves on it’s predecessor in every other way. Graphics are completely fantastic (especially on PC Ultra) but it’s the handling that is the revelation. This is easily the best handling Codemasters have delivered since Colin 2.0 and is accessible, responsive, predictable and convincing. It is a perfect balance of arcade and simulation. Presentation is also splendid and the personalities are well represented (contrasting with the lack of character for the locations) and smack talking back to Travis Pastrana and Ken Block is endlessly great fun.
This game contains ostentatiously omitted sexual swear word in songs.
