The first thing I say about this is that if you love DIRT 4 and wanted this to be an obvious sequel to that game, you would be disappointed, but in my case I feel DIRT 5 I like it.
As a result, one of the first publicly advertised games, DIRT 5, was optimized for the new generation versions of the Xbox Series X / S and Playstation 5, and when played, it turned out to be running on these consoles. I will. Because it’s absolutely amazing!
DIRT 5 incorporates some aspects of the rally and DIRT Showdown, this time mixing the arena a bit, except that it’s actually fun. In the rally stages from A to B, I am trying to set the best time myself. I’m sorry, it’s gone. There are races from A to B, but it’s not like a rally stage, but with the new handling physics, this kind of stage can really fit into the playstyle, so Codies has that aspect of fun. I left it to DIRT Rally. Of course, it doesn’t make sense to have two games with the same side.
I have a lot of things I love about this game, and a lot of things I want to add or change at the same time, but of course this is my personal preference so let’s start with the good ones.
vehicle. I love that variety. From classic rally cars to buggies, and what I swore to God was the actual rally tractor. Each has a different handling style and requires accurate tactical thinking, or a constant pedal to metal. The course itself.
environment. The truck itself is absolutely breathtaking with different locations, surface types, weather forecasters, and seriously the weather. I love the different types of weather featured in this game. You can start the stage in the sun. Second, we know that it will rain in a large tropical thunderstorm type setting. There are electric strikes around you, which makes the race more intense and restrictive so you can focus on your driving. Your vision as you progress.
playground. If someone asks me to define this, I’ll tell Trackmania if I had a baby with a stuntman (remember the PS2 game? If you grew up correctly). I was fortunate enough to join the playground Closed Alpha and soon fell in love. Basically, I used Stage Creator instead of DIRT 4 Stage Creator. In this game, all the changes didn’t work. Gameplay and features. From Gymkhana to checkpoints to sign smashing, the types of stages already underway are staggering. This brings out the creative side and in a variety of environment types, such as car physics, especially in the stadium or in the vast desert, Kick Ass Rallycross style levels in the stadium and Ken Block style gymkhana around the desert. Can be created with a wide variety of objects such as driveable tubes. Inclined curves, real loops, etc. It’s the kind of thing you really need to experience to evaluate the work put into it.
Now let’s move on to what I would have personally improved or changed.
Customize. I was really disappointed with this, especially in the amount of cars available that could bring out everyone’s creative abilities beyond making a stage. The way it works is to have a set design and coloring, and then change the color of those colorings. Think about Euro Truck Simulator. With Forza Motorsport style customization in this game, the possibilities are absolutely endless, but just changing the coloring of these sets and repositioning the car sponsor decal set makes you feel really good. It will be perfect. Child-friendly than really owning a car.
motion. What really disappoints the campaign is the lack of variety. Don’t get me wrong. We have a lot of events to do, so we’ll be running a campaign for a while, but some of the events feel too similar. , Even though the event name is different for each vehicle, I don’t feel like it is different every time. One of my favorites is a small bonus goal for each event. Not only do you have to rush in first and then stay there, but you also have the challenge of keeping a certain distance above 70mph and overtaking your opponent while exchanging paint. With an opponent in the air from the jump.
There aren’t many games that bother me other than the above, but of course there are many that come with the Season Pass and I feel that I can develop customizations with updates and feedback from the community, Steam has different review levels. However, it seems a bit trendy as the steering wheel isn’t supported at launch, but people don’t seem to realize that Codies is confirming support coming soon. It’s like a mobile game. Really? seriously? Get the grip. The graphics are absolutely amazing, and Codies should be proud of the work they do.
I have to be honest. This game gives me a Driveclub feel, and I love it, Driveclub was a great game, and it’s a shame that the studio was closed because there was endless talent.
My verdict? A great game that demonstrates the features of a new generation of consoles, from graphics to load times and content that can be added with new hardware. Take this game seriously and open your changing mind. In some cases change is good, and this is definitely a good change.
