Colin McRae: Dirt 2

Publisher: Codemasters

From our Colin McRae: Dirt 2 review:
'While Dirt 2’s shift away from ‘pure’ rallying to a more contemporary styling will likely divide players, there’s no arguing that the game itself looks simply stunning, improving upon Race Driver: GRID’s EGO engine to make Dirt 2 one of the best looking racers we’ve ever seen. Both cars and tracksides are lavishly detailed, and there are dozens of gorgeous touches, from the spattering mud in jungle stages, to the jaw dropping water effects from the driver’s cam when you hit a water hazard.'

We drive a lap around the London, Battersea track, with a full eight-car grid, starting at the back. We use the High image quality settings in DX11 mode, and repeat each test three times, discarding anomalous results and averaging the consistent ones.
