  1. First impressions aren't great, but get past its awkward exterior and this is a decent racer. [Nov 2009, p.96]
  2. DiRT's debut on Wii will disappoint fans of the series and fans of driving games in general. The cars lack of detail, the tracks are poor and there are many frame rate issues. You can't even play with the Wii-mote, since it's very unresponsive, so you should use Nunchuck's analog stick or connect a Classic Controller.
  3. It just doesn't have the required spark. Disappointing. [Nov 2009, p.66]
  4. Basically, there's not enough content to the Wii port of Dirt 2 to warrant a purchase, and you certainly don't want to pick this up if you have access to another home console version of the game.
  5. This is far from a great title. It won't top end-of-the year lists, and it won't become a cult classic. The graphics and sound are too threadbare, the first half of the game too easy, and lack of online support and realistic damage too disappointing.
  6. It doesn't matter if you're a huge fan of off-road racing, the Wii version of Dirt 2 is best avoided.
  7. The game just isn't much fun. It also isn't fun to look at. [Nov 2009, p.89]

    For as much potential as the Wii version had, Dirt 2 just ends up being a letdown, especially when the package boils down to being a port/crossover of the PSP offering that Sony fans are getting.
  9. Dirt 2 is as vanilla a racer as you're going to find on Wii. There are some unlockable videos and vehicle skins, but this is a very generic package that feels like it was phoned in.
  10. If you have the option, check out the PS3/360 versions of the game, as it’s clear that’s where the game was meant to be played. All Wii users are getting is poor controls, bad graphics and what may be the worst audio found in any racer to date.
