Americans Get DiRTy

With over 500,000 units in worldwide sales and about half of those in the U.S., Americans are clearly embracing Codemasters' latest off-road racing title DiRT. Rally Racing may not be very popular in the states, but Codemasters found just the right mix to appeal to a wider audience. Game Daily Biz shifted into high gear and spoke with Codemasters' Guy Pearce about the game's early success.

Colin McRae racing games always seemed destined for a niche roll in the U.S. After all, the acclaimed series concentrated on rally racing, a discipline of motorsports that has, at best, a cult following in the U.S. compared to NASCAR.

I love racing games. And Dirt is near the top of my list. Dirt is fantastic. Super fun, and probably the best looking GAME I've played, not just racing game, game period. Yeah, I play GOW and a ton of others on the 360. That's saying a lot.

Do yourself a favor and try the demo on PSN if it ever comes out on there.

And 7+ ratings? What the hell sites you been on? Most of the reviews I've read have been 8.5s to 9.5s.
