Great offroad racer.

DIRT 2 is a great offline racer which is too difficult for younger kids. There is no real violence in this, Just implied violence. When you crash the car rolls over and there are grunting noises. You can also hit people and ram them over the road. The language is very moderate when you have radio music in the background and the announcers say a few iffy bits.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

DiRT 2 is an incredibly fun racing title that packs plenty of depth and variety. Each of the tracks feels very unique, from dirty canyons to muddy jungle environments, eliminating any feelings of repetitive play. Players also have access to dozens of vehicles and liveries, or car designs. The bevy of options is complemented by gorgeous graphics. Dirt kicks up in the air as players peel away, while bumpers drag along the track after collisions. Once the beefy career mode has been completed, players can test their skills against others online. Difficulty levels accomodate players of all skill levels, and prove challenging as you enter the tougher difficulties. Overall, this is an exciting, addictive racing title.

Online interaction: Players can engage in open chat with others during online play. They may hear cussing and other language, depending on who they are talking with.
