  • Summary: DiRT Rally captures the essence of what makes rally unique – that sense of trying to remain in control of your emotions, as you hurtle along at breakneck speed, aiming to squeeze everything out of your car whilst knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time.

    It is not the biggest, not the prettiest, but it's simply the best and is not ashamed to admit it. If you hate racing games departure from reality, after playing Dirty Rally you will enjoy to drive the real car. Everything is somehow easier than in game... [Issue#260]

    DiRT Rally has made me forgive all the bigger and smaller missteps Codemasters may have committed. It's a great, very demanding game that could benefit from more maps and attention to detail, but even considering those minor flaws it's simply the best rally game out there. Richard Burns Rally finally has a worthy successor.

    It’s a thrilling race game – the first one to actually make my hands sweat - but it isn’t the most beautiful one out there. You’ll need your best racing skills to complete it, but if you’re not scared by a challenge, DiRT: Rally is the perfect game for you. [feb. 2016 / page 068]

    For years, offroad fans are screaming for a return from Codemasters to classic rally – as well as for a modern successor to Richard Burns Rally. And this delivers on both ends. The career could be more polished and less grind, though.

    Dirty Rally can be unforgiving, unrelenting, and seemingly as high in its demands as the infamous hill climb at Pikes Peak. But the journey is sublime.

    Even completing a stage in the relatively tame classic Mini Cooper S will leave you feeling bothered and fatigued. [Feb 2016, p.114]

    If you go into it looking for a game that doesn't give you an easy go of it and expects you to concentrate and really invest in the challenge, then you will find a satisfying and genuinely exciting game here. If you go in expecting tons of flash and colourful presentation then you may be sorely disappointed.

Finally a great rally game like in the old days , the market really was missing a game like this. If they can make the career mode deeper, its a game to stay on my PC for a long time.
    Every car has a unique feeling, the weather effects on the track is great and the sound is real.

    Put simply, the best rally simulator ever released, with the possible exception of its sequel and Richard Burns Rally. My only gripe with itPut simply, the best rally simulator ever released, with the possible exception of its sequel and Richard Burns Rally. My only gripe with it is the relatively low variation in special stages (although the included ones are exceptionally well crafted to reflect their real-life equivalents), and the somewhat wonky tarmac physics. Other than that (and the unforgiving roadside bumps) it's a thoroughly entertaining experience for someone who enjoys sim racing. Expand

    Não vejo necessidade em escrever um longo texto analisando sobre uma arte, a nota é apenas um conselho para saber o quanto ela vale para sua vida.

    I see no need to write a long text analyzing an art, the note is just a piece of advice to know how much it is worth in your life.
