A continuation of the popular racing game series labeled with the name of Colin McRae, a famous racing driver. Contrary to the previous installments of the series that were devoted to classic car racing, this time around, the developers at Codemasters decided to turn their eye to a completely different direction and focus on off-road racing, which was an equally important episode in the career of the legendary Scotsman. Colin McRae DiRT features an extensive career mode in which we can participate in a number of various challenges, starting with off-road special sections to rallycross tournaments and mountain races on the popular Pikes Peak track in Colorado. Depending on the race, we have different types of licensed cars at our disposal. As we drive, the vehicles can be damaged in various ways and are gradually covered with the eponymous dirt. The title also features a multiplayer mode that lets us compete against other players over the Internet.

DIRT: Colin McRae Off-Road is de facto another installment of the bestselling racing game series for PC / Windows that was created in 1998 and has been branded with the name of the famous Scottish racing driver ever since. This time around, the developers at Codemasters Software decided to abandon the traditional naming (i.e. Colin McRae Rally) to emphasize the new quality of the gameplay which is now devoted solely to off-road driving.


As always, we can drive in classical special sections but we can also take part in a number of other disciplines. For example, we can participate in rallycross tournaments or mountain racing (e.g. the popular Pikes Peak International Hill Climb track, located in the state of Colorado, which has the length of 20 kilometers and 156 turns). Moreover, the game features a desert competition that somewhat resembles Dakar Rally.

Depending on the chosen game mode, we have different cars at our disposal classical or modern, with two-wheel drive (front or rear) or four-wheel drive. Traditionally, the developers secured necessary licenses so the available vehicles include, for example, the faithfully recreated model of Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX. All cars are naturally destructible and are covered with dirt with time.

The developers made sure that the environment is highly interactive, so if we drive into a pile of stones, we will scatter it all around.

Game modes

Naturally, apart from the single player mode, the title features a multiplayer. Its most spectacular gameplay variant is the online competition over the Internet.

System requirements

Recommended: Processor Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz, 1 GB RAM, graphic card 256MB (GeForce 7800 or better), 12.5 GB HDD, Windows XP/Vista
