    For those looking for a simple, arcade-inspired DS racer for on-the-go gaming Dirt 2 is a fine option. You’ve got some great licensed cars, a strong driving engine that has seen years or work, some decent visuals, crisp MP3 music tracks, and a pretty consistent framerate.
  2. Dirt 2 is by no means a bad game, but when compared to other games on the platform – more specifically from Firebrand themselves – it feels a little stale.
  3. Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    Great handling and superb graphics. [Nov 2009, p.99]
  4. Nintendo Gamer
    A decent racer with a good track editor, if you haven't already got something similar. [Dec 2009, p.69]
  5. Dirt 2 is very easy to pick up and make progress in the career mode. However, in such a saturated genre, games need to do more to stand out and make more of an impression on gamers.
  6. A funny experience, but the driving model is not so consistent and the look is quite creepy.
  7. There is no individuality or unique feel to any of the supposedly varied tracks. The mission variety is a thinly veiled joke, and the graphics aren't enough to make you forget that you're not having any fun.
