  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. The game just isn't much fun. It also isn't fun to look at. [Nov 2009, p.89]
  5. It doesn't matter if you're a huge fan of off-road racing, the Wii version of Dirt 2 is best avoided.
  6. 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.
  7. 40
    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.
