    Pretty good for a Wii driving game. Don't listen to Andy B, you can use other controls "Control-wise, DiRT 2 gives you the choice of playing with the Wiimote, steering wheel style or plugging in the Nunchuk and using the analog stick to steer, while using the trigger buttons for gas and brake. The game is smart enough to detect when the Nunchuk is connected, and it switches control Pretty good for a Wii driving game.

    Stop lying bozo. This game's nothing like you describe. The levels, textures and cars are completely different as opposed to just downgraded versions. Get your eyes checked. It's no great game, but it doesn't look like an N64 game unless all you go by is the very first trailer which was of very low quality. Go at least watch some gameplay videos, it's very close to Stop lying bozo. This game's nothing like you describe.

Go at least watch some gameplay videos, it's very close to Xbox quality, though not the finest the Xbox ever did, but certainly up there and nothing like an N64 game. The main bummer is they should have delayed it more to add more features than try to release it at the same date as the other versions and end up ditching many options due to the smaller development time. Maybe the sequel will fare better. I'm only giving a 10 to counter your ridiculous score and accusations. Bozo. Expand

    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.
  2. 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.

    It just doesn't have the required spark. Disappointing. [Nov 2009, p.66]
