Is It Any Good?

Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

Whether you use a game pad controller or an optional (but recommended) racing wheel peripheral and pedals, the vehicles offer authentic handling, though sometimes they feel slippery on sharp turns. Players can tweak the handling for it to feel more like a simulation or an arcade game, or a bit of both.

You can record and replay videos of your performance, which is captured with multiple cameras and pieced together for an impressive highlights reel. DiRT is 2007's best -- and best-looking -- video game for racing fans. It offers a ton of solo and multiplayer options, plenty of cars and tracks to choose from, and captures the fast and frenetic racing that off-roading is known for.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
