    Accessible yet tough and grimy yet gorgeous, Dirt 4 sets a new standard in rally racing – and its well-considered career mode and endless stages inject it with tremendous stamina. Absolutely stonking brilliant.

    Codemasters strikes again! Technically great and filled to the brim with content, this is quite simply one of the best rally games ever made.

    After the success of DiRt Rally, Codemasters is back with a vengeance. DiRT 4 is a testament to everything the company has learned over the years, the best DiRT game to date and one of the best racers of all time.

    DiRT 4 works no matter whether you’re looking a hard, realistic experience, or if you just want to enjoy a good racing game. Codemasters has options for both types of players, and this game becomes a must-have for racing fans.

    A great game although not a risky one. DiRT 4 makes everything right but its offering is not as deep as we were expecting.

    A series that was in danger of going stale has managed to take time off and re-evaluate what bedrock the foundations were built upon. Whilst more reserved in presentation, the racing recovers a serious edge that heightens the peril associated with one of motorsport’s more enticing arenas. Whilst I do miss the crutch of quick rewinds and don’t quite fancy the new Landrush mode, the majority of what’s on DiRT 4’s menu is served up exceptionally well.

    Worth buying for its superb rally sim alone. But the returning racing modes are bland, frustrating and unsatisfying.

    I originally scored this incredible game and 8 but after several hours of riveting play in and out of career mode I can honestly say that thisI originally scored this incredible game and 8 but after several hours of riveting play in and out of career mode I can honestly say that this game deserves a 9.5. Yes sure the graphics are down a little in areas but you only really notice this in the short cinematics and leading into races with some aliasing & low textures here and there. Otherwise the game looks great with stellar weather effects. Cars handle brilliantly and audio quality is 10 out of 10. There's bucket loads of content on offer here and loads of progression, customizations , rewards and loot to be earned. There is plenty of REWARD FOR EFFORT which makes DIRT 4 a classic & can be best described as DESTINY ON WHEELS. Great stuff Codemasters. Best rally I've had the pleasure of playing. :)))) Expand

    First i want to start out by saying i love racing games so keep that in mind when reading this. The car physics is towards the arcady styleFirst i want to start out by saying i love racing games so keep that in mind when reading this. The car physics is towards the arcady style and that suits me just fine. Wrecking a car is also a ton of fun and the deformation it provides is satisfying. Sometimes the menu system gets to me but once you are in a race its all fun and games! Expand

Those are terrible. Bad AI, Bad physics. I had to turn down the difficulty of the whole game just to get these alternative modes done with and continue with the best part. Rally racing! Expand

    If you are a fan of dirt rally, this is not what you’re looking for. The supposed “Sim” handling is on rails and the cars have an unrealisticIf you are a fan of dirt rally, this is not what you’re looking for. The supposed “Sim” handling is on rails and the cars have an unrealistic amount for grip. When you through the back out the game steps in and assists with recovery, I matched the setting to my Dirt rally settings and it did not help. The car just seems to want to stay on the track and doesn’t have to be forced to stay on. The cars feel under powered and the sense of speed is gone. Hitting a random bump in the road and flying of track in to a tree at 100mph that’s rally that’s dirt rally. In dirt 4 when the car hits a jump or bump the physics feel heavy almost as if the track is magnetic. When in the air you can see the game forcing the car straight trying to land on either the left, right two or all four tyres as if those are the only 3 outcomes available instead of just letting the physics dictate it. The other users reviewing the game positively are newcomers and not hard-core fans, the applaud the games accessibility yet fail to see that the success of dirt rally was in its lack of accessibility. Hard-core gamers want hard-core games with no limitations in the physics to “assist” new comers, this game will never be competitive for this exact reason it’s not a level playing field. The entire gaming industry is threated by developers pandering to casuals for a quick buck instead of listening to dedicated life-long fans. It would not have been hard for Codemasters to simply add a Dirt rally handling option yet they have not….Why? because the physics don’t allow it. When I first heard of Dirt 4 I thought na it’s too good to be true this soon, I was proven right. The exact team who created dirt rally should be used for dirt rally 2 I don’t want to have to wait through another 3 of this trash before it happens. Come on codemasters you had it right with dirt rally all you needed to do was give us a few more tracks and cars and we would have been more than happy instead you pander to these scum casuals, even if you would have just gave us DLC for dirt rally I would have paid for it rather than waste money thinking this is it when it isn’t. The casuals you are appeasing will be gone when the next gimmicky trash comes along and we the real fans will be waiting as usual at the back of the queue. Expand
