    Yes, it has some issues. There is some lag online at times, and some glitches. However, this game has to be the most fun derby game in a very long time, and not only that, but you can go online and have crazy matches. I think this game is severely underrated because it has the Dirt name, which disappoints previous Dirt game fans, and scares away people that didn't like Dirt 1-3. DemosYes, it has some issues.

Demos are out on all platforms, and even though there isn't much to see on them, anyone who likes smashing cars owes it to themselves to play at least the demo if not the full game. Expand

    It's really awesome!!! You feel this cool atmosphere of the competition with great music, from rock to dubstep. You can compete in different events, like derby and stunts.

    DIRT Showdown takes a new attempt at the series by changing producing an arcade racer over the regular simulation, and while most DIRT fans despised the change, I absolutely loved it. This is one of the most fun and simple racing games which controls seamlessly and feels slick all around as all the DIRT games do.

This is one of the most fun and simple racing games which controls seamlessly and feels slick all around as all the DIRT games do. DIRT Showdowns best element is the online play which has multiple modes introduced originally in DIRT 3 such as the stunt mode, tag, capture the marker and many more, as well as the new derby mode and classic racing mode. Absolutely love DIRT Showdown and have spent many hour online playing online in a great community. Also love the soundtrack. Might not be your stereotypical DIRT game, but its fun nonetheless. Expand

    Dirt: Showdown is a simple, yet fun game with just a few things missing. The change of pace with the encouraged car-colliding is certainly welcomed, and well executed.

    Get some booze, get some friends, get some DiRT. Good times guaranteed. [Aug 2012, p.76]

    DiRT Showdown breaks new ground for the racing genre. New event types set it apart from other games in its field, but a lack of traditional aspects holds it back from extended player engagement. More tracks and vehicles would have provided a solid premise with the adrenaline rush it needs to maintain the excitement. The game modes don't prevent Showdown from becoming boring after only several hours in, so the thrills are short-lived.
