Fun racing game
fun bash em up racing game, a great one for the younger kids b/c you can adjust the difficulty from really easy to very hard. the demolition derby is great fun and awesome if you're tired of the more realistic street racing games, it is a great mix of arcade style and realism.
Better then the others!
Went in with some low expectations after playing the others but this game is nothing like the others and way better!
I really like this game I don't care if this game does not follow the dirt video game series this is still a very good destruction game! If you are also looking for a good filler game to just waste time this is the game! Like me I'm waiting for boarderlands 2! This was a perfect game I like it a lot!
A step up from the dirt series
I used to have dirt 2 for wii and it wasnt so great but I was looking for a good xbox game and this stood out among the other dirt games. The knockout mode is really fun, might be better for playing multiplayer or online for some but overall this game is great. If your a hardcore gamer that likes demolition derby and crashing then for only $40...GET IT!!!
its an ok game
the game looks great and all but it takes the dirt felling out of it its just not dirt game anymore its like a arcade game wich isnt good
This clump of DiRT is too dry.
This first racing game I feel for was Colin McRae Rally, it got my into WRC racing and I've played all since. DiRT 2 was great and DiRT 3 was equally great, they are some of the only games I play online as racers. Dirt Showdown though takes all that non racing stuff you do in DiRT 3 and tries to make a game out of it and it just doesn't work for me.
I do like the addition of figure 8 and demolition durby events but the game as a whole isn't much, this would've been better as an Arcade game download. I do also notice that the head 2 head gymkhana is off I've beaten Ken to where he wasn't even at the line but he still wins, guess that's the only way Ken can win a race.
Look the games okay but this was time wasted when DiRT 4 or the next in the series could drop, this though has lowered my hopes for Forza Horizon, being it is being released for the same reason.
Good but not quite DiRT enough for me.
Pretty good, but not perfect
This game is actually lots of fun; it doesn't require superior reflexes or exceptional skill and is forgiving of all types of gamers, but it seems lacking a few things, mainly more tracks. Playing singly is entertaining, but online multiplayer is LOTS more. People may quibble over the respawning and such, but the wrecking is well-choreographed and the racing is by turns tight and insane. The game announcer is grating (and you can't turn him off!!!!) but you learn to block him out pretty quickly. The added feature of a Racenet internet hub (with weekly contests and ranking system) really makes the game seem much more like a community, and is a tremendous added no-cost value. All of the Dirt games have really emphasized social networking but none quite as aggressively as this one, but the emphasis seems well-intentioned and beneficial. As long as you step into it knowing that this is far more arcade then simulation, and temper your expectations accordingly, Dirt Showdown is worth the money.
Test Drive: Eve of Destruction Is Still Better
Positives: -Online -Competitive AI -Normal DiRT graphics -Good car selection with upgrades Negatives: -AI wrecks you A LOT -Derby and Knock Out are not even close to realistic -Very repetitive -Usually dirty racers online -Announcer is annoying! -Announcer can't be turned off -Tracks are same from DiRT3 So overall its ok, but Test Drive Eve of Destruction for the PS2 and Xbox is still better overall.
DiRT Showdown is an arcade game, not a simulation and I knew this when I bought it. This game has a good mix of fantasy and reality. It's a lot of fun online with friends and others, and the campaign is the same as almost any other Codemasters racing game; make your way up the ranks. One negative for me is the lack of a cockpit view, but it's not a big deal. I didn't think it was worth $60, but when I saw $40, I was sold. I'm glad I bought this game, it's just fun to play.
great everything except sound the announcer talks too much i would want everyone to play it especially playing it with friends
