Default DiRT Showdown Review - Destruction Derby Meets DiRT

Take all you know about the DiRT series and throw it out the window, because Showdown is a unique specimen in this on-going series. The focus on destruction is huge, and with 13 different race types, there'll be many opportunities to twist metal. Great graphics, fluid control and lots of variety. What more could you want?

Read through our full look at DiRT: Showdown and then discuss it here!

My imagination works a lot harder trying to find reasons to give a **** for pre-scripted Ubisoft characters...

Haha, no doubt. Showdown had almost no dialogue so it was never a problem... some games can get quite bad though.
