Good Old Fashioned Car Bashing!By Mac83uk (3 reviews) , 28 May 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]If you like a good old rally game (McRae) look elsewhere, however if you like a good old destruction derby then this game is for you. There are quite a few different events to keep you entertained, yes the handling & the graphics are not the greatest, but its good old mindless fun.

GREAT FUN FOR ALLBy a customer , 20 Mar 2013Good game really diferent from previous dirt games went down more of a fun route than a serious racing game .Lots of mayhem with the tracks laid out to increase the risk of big crashes can be a bit frustrating but then you remember its only a game defo worth a rent anyway had a good few days fun with it
great greatBy a customer , 05 Mar 2013its a great game so thinking of buying it for my partner for his birthday as he enjoyed playing it
Rally good -_-By alvstar (11 reviews) from London , 19 Feb 2013Not sure why Showdown is receiving mixed reviews, It's a pretty good game in my opinion. Solid driving and a nice variety of different events to try your hand at that also can replayed as mastering events such as Gymkhana has a good replayability factor. The only downside is that it doesn't evolve too much from Dirt 3 and Dirt 3 has the better content.
Worst game ever?By a customer , 28 Dec 2012A Shockingly bad game that is repetitive and not about racing at all. The first 3 dirt games were good, mixing rally cross with baja racing etc. They were fun and varied. Where are they in this game? Gone! They're simply absent from the game. Replaced with over the top, completely unrealistic, destruction derby modes. These might be a little fun online, for 10 minutes, but if that's what I wanted I would've got COD, not something masquerading as a racing title. It's a good job Colin McRae isn't around to see what his pioneering Rally games have become. Nothing more than over Americanised WWE wrestling in cars. Woeful.
smash and race.By magicmatt (72 reviews) , 28 Sep 2012this is great for kids, and i quite enjoyed it as well, it's demolition derby, and a great smash em up, all the levels are achievable, grafix are o. k and the music is current 'i can predict an earthquake right here' it's a bit inane but mixes the smash up with racing really well, and the computer opponents are quite intelligent. loved it.
