  1. Everything about it feels like a rushed production and in the end this is what finally brings it down.
  2. Midway’s first crack at the extreme sports genre has some of the biggest, best-designed and most challenging mini-worlds I’ve ever had the pleasure of cursing at while trying to link BMX tricks/stunts over them.
  3. The control just isn’t tight enough to get the reputation as being solid and fun to use, because in reality it is a real pain and only causes aggravation, which to me is the opposite of being fun.
  4. Not only is it bland, simplistic, and limited, but the technical problems it has makes this game virtually unplayable.
  5. "What in the world was Midway thinking?” That was the exact thought that went through my head as I continually played this travesty of a game.

    Easily one of the worst games I've ever played, and at one point I had "E.T." for my Atari.
  7. I'd say the physics were bad, but I'm afraid that Albert Einstein would rise from his grave and stab me with a protractor for using the word "physics" in the same sentence as Gravity Games. [Sept 2002, p.81]

    Buggy, broken, and nigh unplayable. All the mistakes committed by earlier games in the category are present in Dirt, but they're magnified exponentially by the game's technical flaws.
  9. 20
    If ever a game deserved the term "played out," it would be this one.
  10. In short, the game plays like an unfinished product rushed out the door and has absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
  11. In the ongoing competition for the PS2's worse title, this game undershines them all.[Oct 2002, p.147]
  12. A horribly unplayable, ugly mess.
