My Opinion On Dirt Rally For Xbox One

Finally a rally racing game that lives up to the hype. Dirt Rally is brutally honest with you about your driving skills and will eat you up and spit you out if you take the slightest steering inputs for granted. Every single race is challenging and emotionally exhausting and rewards you with the feeling of a champion when you put up competitive stage times.

Graphically Dirt Rally kicks the ass of WRC 5 and Sebastian Loeb Rally Evo. The terrain, landscapes, and vehicles look amazing. It’s particularly outstanding in replay mode, where there are moments you can’t distinguish video game from reality.

DiRT really makes it’s bones as a sim racer. This game is not for the faint of heart and is super hard to control the cars with both a racing wheel or a controller. Even an experienced racer like myself struggled to put up competitive stage times in the beginning, but once you get down the basic rally driving techniques you are changed forever.

With a wheel the force feedback is strong and it offers a really nice racing experience giving you a nice feel for the varying road surfaces. The key to getting your wheel right though is starting out with the some good settings for the game. To master driving in the game with a steering wheel and pedal set you need to get good at doing left foot braking and Scandinavian Flicks. With DiRT Rally drifting isn’t an option it is required!

NOTE: On an Xbox One using a steering wheel it’s a bit challenging considering none of the Xbox wheels on the market have a compatible handbrake and you need to assign it to one of the buttons.

DiRT Rally Xbox One Review Wrap Up

Overall DiRT Rally is a ton of fun with stellar graphics and an outstanding rally experience. It translates the franticness of rally driving right into your living room and delivers the most simulated rally experience to date.

If you are a a casual racer, you may find DiRT Rally to be a little frustrating because it is HARD! I assure you that mastering the rally driving skills is extremely rewarding if you have the time and patience to practice. This game in my book is an easy 5 rating, but because I understand it’s not for everyone I’m dialing it back to a 4.5.

Official XRP Rating 4.5

Dirt Rally though it has a tough learning curve the rewards are definitely worth it. The game is beautiful and physics are great. The game has a much more simulation feel to it then previous installments in the series. If your a fan of racing you will be a fan of this game!!!! Only con I have so far is that I miss the good old days of multiplayer split screen. I wish that wasn’t a dying tradition in games today

Excellent racing game for rally fans and casual gamers alike. A lot of content on offer and worth the asking price

Dirt Rally is an excellent rally game with beautiful graphics and a lot of content to offer. It is a return back to formula for Codemasters, creating a hardcore rally experience tailored to people who enjoy it instead of an arcade-sim racing blend that the other Dirt games have been.

Great Game!

The game was in the house only 4 hours after UPS dropped it off and my son and I were playing this game non stop. Until my arms were sore!

I haven’t played a rally game since Colin McRae (or whatever the name was). I have to say this iteration is so much more advanced it’s frustrating and exciting at the same time. It’s so challenging that I broken down and purchased a wheel. You can’t play this thing well with a standard controller. It’s far too involved and engaging. You need the feedback from the wheel to understand what’s going on with the car.

Great racing game, best Dirt Game ever, ultra realistic

This is a really great Rally game and exactly what I have been waiting for years for the Dirt team to do. This my friends separates the boys from the men, the skilled from the pretender. This isn’t bumper derby arcade racing kids, sorry if your upset that you lack the patience and motor skills to control the vehicles. With some slight modifications and some time on Google, I was really able to find tune the cars to my style fairly easy. I use a standard X Box One controller and while I’m not setting records my first week playing, I am able to compete and finish in the top consistently.

If you are into racing games and if you’re looking for a challenge then you need to look no further. Dirt Rally is unforgiving but this is mainly because previous games have spoiled us to the point where we expect games to include a rewind feature and the ability to change difficulty levels. People that complain and give this game a poor rating “because its doesn’t cater to the casual gamer” should have done more research on the game before buying it with expectations that it would be an arcade racer….
