Dirt 3 reviews went live this morning and by most accounts, Codemasters nailed it with the latest in their line of racing titles. Dirt 3 is as it sounds, a rally inspired racing game that has you driving the most hazardous terrains in a wide variety of race specific vehicles. One constant that seems to cropping up in the first reviews of the game is variety. Variety in cars, tracks, and gamemodes are making this soon to be released racer a must have.
The critics have been kind to the game thus far, with the game holding a metascore of 87 and 88 on Xbox 360 & PS3 respectively.
These first scores are pacing the game well ahead of other racers that were released earlier this year. With its main competitors Shift 2: Unleashed (81) and Motorstorm: Apocalypse (77), not making quite as good an impression on metacritic contributors.
