Colin McRae: Dirt 2 features five racing disciplines, all of
which are playable offline and
online. In addition, three ‘special modes’ are included. Dirt 2 runs on an updated version of the EGO engine, which powered Codemasters’ Race Driver: GRiD as well. The engine most notably features an updated physics engine,
which models realistic weight transfer during turning maneuvers,
allowing the player to incorporate advanced driving techniques such as
the Scandinavian Flick.
Again we have the 9600 GSO as the top performer, 31% above the HD 4670 at 1440 x 900, and 26% higher at 1920 x 1280; clearly frame buffer does not matter in this title. Again, the AXLE GT 240 ran very close to the HD 4670.
