DiRT 2 is a racing game developed by Codemasters. It is the seventh installment in the Colin McRae Rally series.
Five disciplines are present in the game such as Rally, Rallycross, Trailblazer, Land Rush, and Raid. Special events appear on the map from time to time which includes Gatecrasher, where the players have to smash yellow barriers placed on the track; Domination, where you have to set the best time possible on a sector of a racing course, and Last Man Standing which resembles a usual Rallycross event with the elimination of the last racer to cross the finishing line on a lap. Every one of them can be played either offline or online. Racing events take place all around the world. The main objective of the game is to win all the X-Games events present in the game.
The players use an RV as their headquarters. There you can choose races to participate in, customize a wide range of cars or choose your co-driver. Multiple racing stars are present in the game, most notably Ken Block and Travis Pastrana.
The game features an enhanced physics engine which simulates vehicle weight with pin-point accuracy and allows for realistic terrain effect on the handling of the car driven by the player.
A multiplayer mode is also featured in the game. Compete with seven other players either in ranked or unranked matches.
