  1. Not only is it bland, simplistic, and limited, but the technical problems it has makes this game virtually unplayable.
  2. "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.

    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.

    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]
  5. 20
    Easily one of the worst games I've ever played, and at one point I had "E.T." for my Atari.
  6. 20
    If ever a game deserved the term "played out," it would be this one.
  7. In short, the game plays like an unfinished product rushed out the door and has absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

    In the ongoing competition for the PS2's worse title, this game undershines them all.[Oct 2002, p.147]
  9. A horribly unplayable, ugly mess.

    Well, this game has it all. It gives you COMPLETE control over everything in the game, and you just feel like playing it more and more. It Well, this game has it all. It gives you COMPLETE control over everything in the game, and you just feel like playing it more and more. It will keep you in the game, only because of the fact that it will brain wash you into making you think that it is a really good game. If you were offered this game for free, it is really good as fire wood, and I promise you it will keep your house warm for a few minutes, but don't expect anything else from this game. Full Review »
