Its developers dropped most of the technical aspects from the earlier games in favor of a terrific, hassle-free arcade racer with a huge assortment of events and plenty of competition. Now comes the superior sequel, Dirt 2.
You begin the game in a beat-up trailer that serves as a real-world hub. From there, you head outside to choose your vehicle and modifications to make it run better. Then it's time to hit the road and choose from over 100 single player races".
