    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.

I really like the new gamer control model, which finally permits to play with a controller in all the weathers. However the small buggy control is just horrible and twitchy. I like the career mode and the build your team, but I am not sure how deep the career mode is really...there is no years, season or aging involved, just unlocking stuff, making more money for your team. So, I am not sure it qualifies to anything near a career. Some of the graphics are quite well done and they fix the short range of vision for night settings. The sounds are very good. The music samples are amazing and various. There is maybe not enough variety in the locations, as you get only 3-4 places (if it's more it does all look a like). I like that version more then the previous. Now if we could get the real rally license and tracks that would be amazing. I give it a 78% Expand

    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

    Ужасная, однообразная игра, я потратил 75 часов на её прохождение, очень сильно пожалел сразу, как осознал, что это всё. 5 ЛОКАЦИЙ СУжасная, однообразная игра, я потратил 75 часов на её прохождение, очень сильно пожалел сразу, как осознал, что это всё. 5 ЛОКАЦИЙ С ОДНООБРАЗНЫМИ ТРАССАМИ, 1 турниром на 3-5 локаций и 6-8 трасс в каждой. Игра слишком однообразна, для такого количества контента, надо было сделать игру макс часов на 25. Плюс в этой игре - музыкальное сопровождение, оно здесь не подкачало. А так дописываю название игры, DiRT 4/10 Expand

    "If you loved the challenge of DiRT Rally, then you can switch to the Sim Handling mode and have an experience that is even closer to the real deal than we managed to achieve with DiRT Rally".
    - Codemasters Chief Designer Paul Coleman-

    Total lie. Stick with Dirt Rally.
