MyWii writes: "The Wii is not renowned for good quality car games, but the name Colin McRae is. Although this title plays quite well there are too many little things that add up to make this first Colin McRae incarnation on the Wii a real letdown for the series. It's no where near in the same league as the other console versions and in basically every department the game is hit-and-miss. For every promising feature there is something negative that holds it back.
Colin McRae: DiRT 2 lacks any real spark or outstanding characteristic and as such is a run-of-the-mill racer. Recommended only for true racing enthusiasts who do not own other consoles, and even then it would be best to try before you buy or wait to see how F1 2009 pans out."
