DiRT 3 is pure and simple the best driving title currently available. It’s welcoming enough for complete newcomers, yet packs in enough difficulty for even the most hardened veterans thanks to the expertly implemented difficulty system. The aesthetics are wonderful all round, the new events are all well thought out and designed inclusions, and the increase in number of rally events is an absolute masterstroke. Basically, Codemasters have well and truly sped off into the distance to first place with DiRT 3. Let’s see what the other big boys can come up with next.
