Top Skidmarks: Dirt 2 Demo


The demo for energetic rally-sequel Dirt 2 is out, and we're ashamed to admit we've not been able to get our own hands-on impressions of the offroad racer onto the site before the game hit. In short: we rather like it. The courses are fun, and the vehicles slide and jump commendably. The demo, which is here (and 1.32gb), features two events: a "Trailblazer" event, in which you thrash a Mitsubishi Eclipse GT along some Moroccan roads in a point-to-point course, a "Landrush" circuit race which takes place at the Ensenada Port track in Baja California. While the Trailblazer thing is against the clock, the Landrush is an 8-vehicle race in some big old American land-trucks. I prefer the Trailblazer track myself, as they're amongst the best in the game.

Dirt 2 is out on PC this Thursday.
