Colin McRae: Dirt 2 includes many new race-events, including stadium
events. Along with the player, an RV travels from one event to another,
and serves as ‘headquarters’ for the player. It features a roster of
contemporary off-road events, taking players to diverse and challenging
real-world environments. The game takes place across four continents:
Asia, Europe, Africa and North America. The game includes five different
event types: Rally, Rallycross, ‘Trailblazer,’ ‘Land Rush’ and ‘Raid.’
The World Tour mode sees players competing in multi-car and solo races
at new locations, and also includes a new multiplayer mode.
Benchmark Results: Both cards were very playable at the lower 1280×1024 resolution. The Gigabyte Radeon HD 5670 card did outperform the 9600GT by a little over 4fps. At 1920×1200, the difference was less obvious, as the Gigabyte card scored 8% higher than the GeForce card.
