    DIRT 5, sets out to offer an arcade style racing game with an in-depth narratively driven career mode, and an array of other exciting modes for all to enjoy. The graphics and environments on display are stunning, with an immersive sound design to tie it together. The Playgrounds mode offers an endless sea of creative possibilities for players to test their skills, while chasing the top spot on the global leaderboards. All of these features are a wonderfully wrapped gift, that comes together to create one of the most fun racing games to date.

    Dirt 5 immediately feels like a classic off-road romp of explosive proportions. Customisation options fizzled too soon for my taste, but this is still a solid title for any arcade-sim race fan.

    Dirt 5 is that one friend you love to go out drinking with. It’s brash, bold, and it’s a lot of fun. It’s got a bunch of awesome tracks and a dynamic weather system that works really well, and then the playgrounds mode injects much-needed longevity into a game that might become stale after 20-30 hours or so. However, if you’re looking for a racing experience where detail, precision, and tinkering is important then Dirt 5 isn’t for you. But if it's fun you're after, you’ll have a blast.

    If you’re already a fan of the Dirt franchise, there’s little to take issue with here – jump right in. If you’re a racing fan who’s new to the series, though, I can definitely say Dirt 5 is worth a look.

    Dirt 5 adopts the arcade sensibilities of the series' past, but its frenetic action is dampened somewhat by an uninspired handling model.

    DiRT 5 looks good, but feels way too dull to really trigger our love of arcade racing, specially with a lousy AI and multiplayer races that all end up in a demolition derby round. At least, Playground mode saves the day and brings a welcome dose of pure fun into the mix.

    Dirt 5 can afford to be vain, because it’s the kind of game you play because you think the levels are pretty. And you’re not wrong. They’re very pretty. But it’s not the game you play if you want to play a racing game. It’s barely the kind of game you play if you want to play a driving game. It’s the kind of game you play if you just want to move through pretty levels, which is something lots of videogames do these days. So Dirt 5 at least has that going for it.

    I thought it was terrible at first, because it handles way too arcadey, much more so than my favorite in the series (Dirt 2). It only everI thought it was terrible at first, because it handles way too arcadey, much more so than my favorite in the series (Dirt 2). It only ever feels right on ice, which is a shame. But ignoring my expectations - that it would be a worthy successor to 2 - it's not a bad racer on its own merits. I quite like it after playing a while, now. Expand

    Dirt 5 is not an usual DIRT game, but it's as good as other arcade DIRT games.

    This game doesn't haves rally races and is exremely arcade(and haves auto braking because of that!). But still is about offroad racing as much as other DIRT games.

Tbh that is exactly something I was looking for. I have not experienced any crashes or bugs so far (20hrs in). Graphics are good (but not "next-gen" for sure), performance could be better. Expand

    Interesting tracks, bright graphics, arcade physics, pleasure from driving in different classes of cars.

    That's what we love the Dirt
    Interesting tracks, bright graphics, arcade physics, pleasure from driving in different classes of cars.

    That's what we love the Dirt series for. But the 5th part slipped completely. At 3-4 there were already prerequisites, but they were still played cheerfully. 2yu is certainly hard to beat, it is the standard of the series.

    Part 5 has a bit of fun, the gamepad is almost fun to play. The new modes (on ice) are great. Quite good saturated cards. Nice soundtrack. Smart graph (but not optimization). And that's all. If we take it apart by the bones, then there are in fact few maps (tracks), the car fleet does not make much sense, 1 car for each type of race for the eyes. The bots are stupid, even at maximum difficulty it is not difficult to go around them.

    The main complaint is those. the state of the game.
    1. I went through all the parts on the steering wheel, and I want this one too, but the curved-handed designs still can't make support normally. I use Logitech Driving Force Pro, I agree, quite an old device, but it works great in DR2.0 and in all other modern simulators. And it still pleases with 900 degrees and a good return. In the same game, at first he stupidly did not work, but now with the last one. With patches, the game just crashes when you select the steering wheel in the settings.
    2. A huge number of bugs and problems for people, even just with the launch. And this cannot be cured for already 4 months from the date of release. (and someone else is branding Cyberpunk).

    In addition to the steering wheel support curve, indistinct optimization, the game on the r7 3700x and 1080ti sags in places up to 40 fps.

    The gameplay is interesting, but there are a bunch of stupid modes and poor dzhimkhana. I drove for 5 hours and abandoned.

    In general, on the strength of 4 out of 10 points. I bought it for the full price. Sorry.
    If when something happens that bugs are fixed, it will be 6 out of 10.

    Dirt 5 is just "dirt" easy and I really don't know why. No one who has played a whiff of arcade racing games would even lose in this game;Dirt 5 is just "dirt" easy and I really don't know why. No one who has played a whiff of arcade racing games would even lose in this game; meanwhile even 100 hours in Dirt Rally won't land you a constant top 3 in the game. On top of being poorly optimized and not really looking all that modern, it makes you say that Codemasters ruined their last title being an independent company. Expand

    Physics are super unrealistic even for a arcade racing game they are relay bad, The ai is more like a AS (artificial stupidity), This game could have been good but it turned out horrible.
