    Dirt 5 is similar to Project CARS 3 with its arcade racing style - just with a larger focus on rally racing. The style absolutely works in Dirt 5, offering up accessible rally racing to anyone interested in getting behind the wheel. Of course, the drive is what you make it. So should you want to become a master racer to take on other skilled players online, that option is also easily available to you so long as you're willing to put in the time.

    Even with an enhanced version on the horizon that includes 120 fps with the arrival of next generation consoles, Dirt 5 delivers a fantastic off-road racing experience full of content that will keep you busy not only on the track, but also off with the addition of the new Playgrounds arena editor. Considering there is a free upgrade to the next-gen version as well, there is no reason not to go ahead and pick this one up if you were at all interested, especially if you are a fan of the franchise.

    If only it had Dirt 2’s crash damage, this would have scored a perfect 10. Even without it, this is a superbly playable, varied, and visually gorgeous racer. [Issue#182, p.141]

    Codemasters takes the fun road for its new Dirt: it’s not the best in the series, but it’s exciting to play, even considering some technical issues on current-gen consoles.

    Dirt 5’s story has a solid foundation and stellar voice acting, but it ultimately fails to capitalize on its potential.

    The new instalment of the Dirt franchise is full of energy and style but lacks in some aspects that made the previous iterations so attractive.

    In a game called Dirt, dirt has no effect on car’s behavior, and neither does snow. Only ice forces you to make adjustments to your driving. [Issue#250, page 53]

Above all, it's a pileNot often these days I end up playing the game late in the night and looking forward to the next morning to play again. Above all, it's a pile of fun. Even the career mode is not a chore, as these usually are in racing games.
    I really love Dirt 5, and the more you play it, the more you appreciate the true scale of the game. A huge variety of locations and cars. The weather effects are tremendous.
    Yes, this is an arcade racer. Those who prefer sim/arcade or sim might not like this. I love my sims like Dirt Rally 2.0, GT Sport etc, but I've been looking for a good arcade racer, and this is the one that fits my needs. Among others, Motorstorm fans will love this.
    Graphics: seen a lot of comments about this, but there are very good. Not up to Forza 4 standards, but definitely on a high standard.
    The collision detection is perfect for close and fair online racing. You can't just barge through a corner and puts everyone of course. The cars remain somewhat planted, a bit off course, but another player can't nudge you out of the game. Already played some very exciting online races.
    The current online options are very basic but Codemasters has promised to upgrade these.
    Time trials: if you love time trials, this is the game to play. A huge amount of track/car combos where you can compare your times to global players an friends.
    Hope to see you on the track!

Come on, this is just Sega Rally, only without that arcade background. Some critics said that there’s a lot to do in the game. I would strongly disagree - 95% of the game is racing (or rather sliding) against other cars on muddy/snowy/icy tracks, using brakes 6 times per lap. There is no rally experience whatsoever. No reward. Like I said - Sega Rally meets NFS. Expand

    Would recommend forza horizon 4 instead of this, like seriously. forza horizon 4 is so much better game.
    Even just graphically.
