    With a properly meaty career mode, literally endless racing thanks to its procedurally generated stages, and the best sound and visuals Codemasters has ever mustered, Dirt 4 has redefined what we should expect from modern rally games.

    From a pure driving standpoint though, it’s tough to beat Dirt 4. It’s a niche style of racing, but it’s one with a lot of positives that the majority of people can enjoy. If you’re into competition and bumping into other drivers as you race, there are modes for you, but there are better options out there if that’s all you’re looking for. Dirt 4 is for the people who love the simulation aspect. They want to be challenged. They want to ‘Scandinavian Flick’ their way around dense forests at night time with the fog and rain closing in. It’s dirty, but it’s glorious.

    I recommend the game especially to rally beginners, who want to improve their driving skills continuously.

    DiRT 4 is a very good game, that much is certain. Retaining the fantastic control of cars from DiRT Rally, albeit made somewhat simpler, it offers almost endless rallying with a procedurally generated track system and a number of changing online challenges. Not without its flaws, including an oversimplified gamer control scheme and anemic career mode, it's still a worthy entry of the core DiRT franchise.

    All in all, Dirt 4 is an undeniably fantastic racing experience wrapped up in a dull procession of events known as a career mode. At its absolute best it can be a white-knuckle thrill ride that hardcore racing fans would do well to give a try, but those after a more consistently adrenaline-filled arcade experience may want to look elsewhere.

    An accessible off-road racer, but a lack of personality and dull management features let it down. [Aug 2017, p.76]

    Duality is the biggest flaw of Dirt 4. Fans of colorful arcade racing games will find it too dull and unforgiving, while hardcore rally enthusiasts continue to enjoy their DiRT Rally and Richard Burns Rally.

    Classic DiRT!

    Very solid game combining the best elements of the original DiRT and DiRT Rally.

    No technical issues encountered during the first 30hrs of gameplay - 4790K GTX1080 on Windows 10 64 bit, DFGT.

    As a side note there's a nice soundtrack as well.

    Highly recommended!

    Needs more locations and some extra tile variation added.

    DiRT4
    + Excellent wheel and extra devices support
    + Good variation in gameplay
    + Track generator is realistic as real rally drivers get new tracks all the time
    + Compared to DiRT2/3 the extreme-bruh-dubstep-feel is minimal
    + Detailed career mode

    - Co-pilot's voice is bland
    - Track generator does seem to make bland tracks
    - Still kinda stupid poppy music
    - Just not as fun to drive as DiRT Rally, just look at Steam charts numbers of current players per game...

    Dirt 4 is not arcade garbage.

    At the lowest, it's a great simcade racer. Breaking down its handling model, it's Dirt Rally's but with noticeable improvements in weight transfer, braking, jump characteristics and FFB feel, and large improvements in tarmac and rallycross physics. Dirt 4 can feel more realistic than Dirt Rally at times.

    The only caveat is high gravel grip, which restricts the car's ability to be thrown to the end of a bend sideways (unless its rallycross). Yes, that takes a hit on the game's realism, but that doesn't mean it is not fun to drive. The game's still highly enjoyable to play, sim handling + no assists on a wheel and a controller.

    The stage generator produces fun to drive rally stages (but don't expect it to recreate DR's Anglos' complexity). On a scale of Dirt 3 to DR, D4's generated stages are 75% towards DR's. It makes online rally very enjoyable because you don't know the combination of turns ahead, and its up to your skill and your split-second reactions to the pace-notes to determine whose faster, rather than wondering if your opponent practiced that stage a thousand times in custom event prior. Even if you recognise some sections, taking them at 100% pace is still satisfying as driving on a familiar stage in another rally game. ATM yourstage has a solid start, but it has so much more potential and it would be great for CM to improve it for the sequel.

    TLDR: It's still a very fun game. But if you don't want to touch anything that's not a full simulator, just get RBR.

    I was hugely disappointed with the play-ability of Dirt Rally, great game don't get me wrong but unfortunately no adjustment for driver levelI was hugely disappointed with the play-ability of Dirt Rally, great game don't get me wrong but unfortunately no adjustment for driver level ability, just preset on super hard and cop it. I waited for Dirt 4 to come on special in Steam as no way I was going to pay full price after Dirt Rally. I like the options here more play-ability wise and some different game modes but after a week of playing my love of the Dirt series games has now come to an end. It new coded driver engine is not consistent, throwing you off mid corner in Rally mode for no apparent reason, and the awful Buggy's are just horrible. Sorry Codemasters, you have lost a once loyal customer here but good luck in the future, can only get better from this stuff. Expand

    After the Darling Brothers sold/left Codemasters, the company and quality of games released has slowly gone downhill.

    Dirt 4 drives it off the edge of the cliff.

    This release confirms the company is producing nothing more than middle-shelf cannon fodder to shill to unsuspecting brain-dead consumers.

    GRID was the last good racing game Codemasters made, and utterly destroyed that franchise with GRID2.

    "Dirt" is now dead, just like its progenitor, Colin MacRae.

    It is an awful thing to note: the loss of yet another great British company to greed and apathy of the very thing we once, as gamers; held so dear:

    Quality.

    Giving money to Codemasters for this 'game' is an affront to quality and the paths we chose to meet it on the road, vying for position amongst the quagmire of dross and disparity of excellence.
