Several conflicting feelings sprang to mind as I hurtled around the courses in the opening hours of Dirt 3. On the one hand this game looked stunning and played like a dream. On theother hand, hadn’t I played this all before in Dirt 2?
Thankfully sinking more time in to Dirt 3 and exploring all it had to offer revealed a game that takes all that Dirt 2 had to offer and eclipses what was an already classic off-road racer.
As has become a trademark of the Dirt series the in menu screens and presentation have a very distinctive look and feel. Thankfully Codemasters have dropped the full on “Dude Sweat” approach of the last outing and moved to a more esoteric triangular design that fits very well. The menus are also a lot slicker to navigate than the slightly cumbersome ones found in Dirt 2.
