NowGamer: PS3 Colin McRae: DiRT 2 Preview

The racing genre seems to have undergone a shift in focus as of late. While the likes of Gran Turismo and Microsoft's Forza 3 are battling it out for ultra-realism, there's a small group of developers trying to open up the playing field. Bizarre Creation's Blur has opted for weapons while Black Rock Studio's Split/Second felt an unpredictable environment is what was needed. As for Codemasters, it's treading a line between them all.

At its heart, DiRT 2 wants to be nothing more than an addictive racing experience. Allowing a huge degree of choice, it's exceptionally easy to either slam all the driving assists on and concentrate on just taking every corner without crashing or attempting to try your hand at mastering the art of realistic driving, which is where DiRT 2 really shines. Codemasters has catered incredibly well for both novices and experts though, with the latter presented with an astonishingly real representation. Whichever direction a driver takes, mind you, the tweaks the developer has introduced will pose a challenge regardless. (Colin McRae: Dirt 2, PS3, Xbox 360)
