What The Critics Rate It
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.
