    Without question the best rally sim ever made. Reality without the whiplash.

    There’s no doubt about it, DiRT Rally is the finest rally game currently available on Xbox One.

    I have nothing but praise for Codemasters’ return to the muddy motorsport of rally.

    A great rally racer, true to the roots of Codemasters' series with a no frills approach to the core of the rally experience and brilliant visuals. Challenging and satisfying, it a definite must buy for any rally lover.

    It’s the best rally racer on modern consoles, and a fine debut for this DiRT sub-series.

    In conclusion, if you are a casual racer who just wants to have fun and enjoy doing races without too much frustration, Dirt Rally is not for you. It is daunting for even hardcore racers. However, if you are seeking a real rally simulation experience and have strong willpower to overcome all the challenges that this game throws at you, it’s the best game on the market compared to titles like Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo and WRC 5.

    An honest, often brutal celebration of rallying that will exhilarate racing fans but intimidate newcomers.

I thought myself to be good atCan't deny that this is the best racing game that I've ever played . But if you're a beginner it's unforgiving. I thought myself to be good at racing games (forza 6) but in this game I keep crashing, flipping the vehicle and driving off cliffs. Even with all assissts on I am having troubles. I played Dirt, Dirt 2 and other codemasters titles. Still I welcome the challenge. And now, I'm much better at this game. I'm using a controller not a wheel but I admit it will be more enjoyable if u play it with a wheel Expand

This isn't as easy to pick up as other games, but if you hang in for awhile and get used to it, it is a very fun game. No rewinds and limited restarts for events, so you have to be accurate and pick your spots to take chances. I have never felt happier to finish in the top 3 in a racing game before. If you like realistic racing games give this a spin. Expand

    Hard as hell, but better for it. There are no real guides or techniques, the game really does bottle down to reflexes and reflexes alone. NoHard as hell, but better for it. There are no real guides or techniques, the game really does bottle down to reflexes and reflexes alone. No rewinding, no adding 35 different assists so you win, just a realistic, impeccably designed driving game. It does suffer from lack of content and variety, but everything it does do, it does perfectly. Expand

    Overall a decent sim rally game. (Review in version 1.1)

    PROS: Graphics are good. Car physics feel great. Stages are fun and demanding.
    Overall a decent sim rally game. (Review in version 1.1)

    PROS:
    Graphics are good.
    Car physics feel great.
    Stages are fun and demanding.
    Several different terrain/weather combinations.

    CONS:
    Claims that the cars are upgrade-able, which is kind of a stretch. There are very few upgrades, and they occur almost automatically. More like leveling up than upgrading.
    Weird bugs here and there.
    Rallycross AI opponents set lap records only in your races, as you can see their times in the other seats and they are always 2-3 seconds faster in yours.
    Overall lack of content. Not enough stages / bland line up of rallycross events.
    Some small roadside obstacles absolutely demolish your car or send it flying.
    Indestructible banners.
    Incredibly long load times.

    Did my homework on this review, this game is not by the original codemasters that made dirt 3, 2, 1. It's the same guys that bought out theDid my homework on this review, this game is not by the original codemasters that made dirt 3, 2, 1. It's the same guys that bought out the franchise of wrc 4 and there horrid with controls over the car slow in all aspects!! an atmosphere of the game they made so yes dirt rally is not apart of the real dirt franchise. If you, like me thought we were gonna get a real detailed next gen with great controls over your car/ avatar. You won't, just go buy dirt 3. Or like me i'm running back out to return this an purchase back dirt 3!!!! Expand
