Nov 12, 2020I 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.
Jul 17, 2021Awesome graphics, great arcade gameplay (it's NOT a simulator), cool sound, nice soundtrack (as always), but there's little innovation. Ray Tracing support is really not worth it; it's incredibly limited and takes a toll in performance.
No crashes or performance issues. Running just fine in Ultra on RTX 2060 6GB. Really fun game to play.
Feb 13, 2023Great game with enjoyable local multiplayer for 4 players. Carreer mode is good enough to play it for the unlockables ad rewards.
Nov 14, 2020Dirt 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.
Awards & Rankings
LEVEL (Czech Republic)Apr 12, 2021Dirt 5 is a dead end. Its driving model is unnecessarily simple and career is reprehensibly austere and boring. On the other hand, famous series’ weather is absolutely thrilling, which sets the atmospheric standard for all future racing games. [Issue#310]
Jan 26, 2021Dirt 5 is a fiesta of mediocrity, from its disappointing career mode and boring time trials to DOA multiplayer.
Dec 8, 2020Dirt 5 drives in a completely opposite direction to Dirt Rally 2.0. The driving model is disappointingly simple, and the career is just plain boring. At least there are many cars to choose from and hours to spend in the track editor. And the best thing about this game? Its weather effects are simply breath-taking.
