DiRT3 is an amazing off-road racing game featuring tons of cars and events, mostly Rally.
DiRT3 has a career mode, single-player modes, some multiplayer modes and online mode. The career mode, DiRT3 Tour, is divided into four seasons each with different events.
I liked the variety of events to choose from. There is rally, rally cross, land rush, trailblazer, gymkhana and head2head. Rally is WRC style racing from one part of the track to another. Rally cross is like the X Games rally races with laps around a track. In land rush, you race with trucks and/or buggies. Trail blazer is very similar to rally, but you don’t use rally cars. I really don’t know what you’re using, but they are the fastest cars in the game. Gymkhana is a freestyle arena type event and you do tricks to get points. Finally, in head2head you go one on one with rally cars. You get to play these events in all modes.
I also liked the graphics and physics of the game. It looks very realistic, almost like real life. The cars in the game handle very realistically. I didn’t like gymkhana so much.
I like pretty much every part of the game so far except gymkhana.
DiRT3 is a really good game so far. I would give it 9/10.
