    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.

    DiRT 4 does such a good job of accommodating to every audience possible that I can wholeheartedly recommend this to everyone reading right now. This is a properly well-developed and pure racing experience for all to enjoy.

    The best rally game on the market and the triumphant return of the famous series. Codemasters listened to both the ovations and the lamentations and made a great driving game with lots of bonus content for everyone. DiRT will not stay undefeated this year – at least on the gravel.

    Codemasters finally reminded me why I loved this series before Dirt 3 and Showdown happened. [08/2017, p.54]

    DiRT 4 offers us a very good driving model, suited both to hardcore rally lovers and more casual gamers, and a satisfying variety in modes and tracks. We would have liked a greater range of locations and more stunning graphics, but what's left is however a very solid and entertaining racer.

    If you’re looking for a game that features a lot of attention to detail and places a great focus on its handling mechanics, then DiRT 4 is a very worthy pick-up. Just don’t go in expecting a game that is as ‘arcadey’ as the first several DiRT titles were.

    At the end of the day, DiRT 4 is left as very good racer that is let down by the odd visual and audio issue. If you’re a gaming petrol head who is prepared to look beyond those though – and can consider turning off the repetition of your Spotter – then you’ll most definitely like what you find.

    Edited on May 12, 2022. Online features are back - updated my score to 9/10.

    Original review from December 2011 (when online features were disabled for Xbox users) is below:

    Has had all online features on Xbox disabled since August 2021. Competitive events, leaderboards etc. simply do not work on Xbox. If these are important to you then buy it on Steam or PlayStation instead.

    The offline parts of the game are good. The different event types all feel fantastic with a nice range of vehicles. The simplistic "my team" aspects of managing a team feel like a bit of an afterthought.

    The actual driving is fantastic. Feels like a modernised and more substantial version of the original Colin McRae games from the PS1 days. Top notch on both arcade and simulation settings. They have completely nailed the "feel" of the driving to be fun with enough of a challenge to set decent times... if only you could access the leaderboards to see how close you can get to the ones at the top.

    Dirt 4 on Xbox would have been a 9/10 for me. But sadly without the online features up and running then even 5/10 is being generous. The disabled features just take far too much away from a game built around setting the best times.

Randomly generated tracks make itIt is good, not gonna lie, but is nowhere near to Dirt 3. Dirt 3 was more arcade, Dirt 4 is more realistic. Randomly generated tracks make it feel very very artificial, online isn’t that fun, I really hope the realistic side of Dirt stays in Dirt Rally, and the arcade side stays on Dirt. I really hope there will be a Dirt 5 that is a worthy Dirt 3 sucesor Expand
