    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.

It is unforgiving but true to the sport. The graphics could be a little better. The amount of content is fantastic. More cars would be cool but the physics and gameplay more than make up for the downfalls the game has. Using a wheel is easy to setup and the way i prefer to play. I've always loved the series but Codemasters outdone themselves with this one. Expand

    Deep but generic

    Dirt 4
    Deep but generic
    Dirt 4 is a racing game all about rally cars, and this rally simulator gets pretty deep…
    Before the game starts it asks if you’re here for fun or here for simulation...
    I chose fun but the game just couldn’t deliver for me…
    Dirt 4 Features a lengthy career mode, an academy to learn the ropes, free roam, free play, trials, and competitive online options with up to 8 players…
    There are 4 types of event you can do here….
    There’s land rush which is truck and buggy racing around boring dirt tracks… rally cross which is a circuit race around boring asphalt tracks… and finally Rally and Historic Rally which are really the stars of this show…
    The game has a great soundtrack but sadly during races you have a voice in your ear telling you the upcoming turns as there is no mini map to race with…
    And each race gives you challenges for extra credits that you can use to buy new cars, upgrade your parts, and pay your team that you hire to repair your car more efficiently as you do take damage, which is why it’s important to pay attention to the commands from your partner while racing..
    Sadly these rally races much like the circuit races also get boring fairly quickly…
    There are seemingly endless amounts of rally tracks here with different terrain and weather to deal with….
    These tracks are endless because they are procedurally generated…
    In modes outside of career in particular, you choose the length and complexity on a slider and with that information the game generates a track
    if you’ve been around my channel long you know that procedural generation is my favorite thing in the world...
    That’s sarcasm…
    I hate procedural generation and Dirt 4 does a great job of showcasing why this is…
    Every single track despite being different feels exactly the same no matter the weather I’m dealing with…
    The problem with procedural generation is that it lacks the handcrafted care levels in practically every game need… this is especially true for racing games
    Its artificial replayability…
    I’ll play the same great hand crafted track 100 times before ill play 100 procedural tracks…
    This procedural generation quickly exhausts this game for me…
    And that’s a shame because it is so deep…
    The cars handle wonderfully, there are time attacks and smash attack obstacle courses to finer tune your drifting and handling skills….
    There is love in this game… just not in the actual tracks where it desperately needs to be..
    Again, at the start of the game you’re asked if you want fun or simulation...
    Those that choose simulation no doubt in my mind will think this game is great or even amazing...
    But those here for fun...
    Look someplace else…
    I give Dirt 4
    a 7.5/10
