DiRT Rally vs. DiRT Rally 2.0: Which is better?


DiRT Rally is a video game that was launched in 2015. Then in 2019, DiRT Rally 2.0 was launched, which is a predecessor of DiRT Rally. Both the games are driving games that mimic realistic driving conditions. Both of these games are fabulous, but gamers always tend to ask what version is the best.

In this article, we will clear this confusion and tell you about what game is best, whether DiRT Rally or DiRT Rally 2.0.

An insight you need to know about:

The games, i.e., DiRT Rally and DiRT Rally 2.0, can be played on Xbox, PC, and PlayStation 4. The games are not for mobile devices. Furthermore, both of these games have incredible graphics, texture, and physics. Today, we will look at why DiRT Rally 2.0 is better than the earlier version of the game.

What is the Difference?

There are many differences between DiRT Rally and DiRT Rally 2.0. Some of the primary differences are specified below.

1. Car Models

Although there is not much difference in car models, it means the models of the cars present in the games do not vary much and are almost identical. But in DiRT Rally 2.0, there is extra work done on the exterior of the car. However, when it comes to the interior, DiRT Rally outraces its successor.

It is because the steering wheel was more detailed, and the driver's gloves were less detailed in DiRT Rally 2.0.

2. Environment Texture

The texture of the environment is better in DiRT Rally 2.0. For example, the dirt roads and grass in DiRT Rally are not in much detail as compared to its predecessor. Moreover, the weather in DR 2.0 is also better, and more depth is added to make the environment texture look realistic.

3. Lighting

DR 2.0 is brighter than Dirt Rally and has more illumination and bloom effects. However, some people experience difficulties when they drive too fast in DR 2.0. However, the lighting can always be adjusted in the game according to the users' needs.

4. Reflective Surfaces

Reflective surfaces are no doubt the major upgrade that the developers did in DR 2.0. The added screen enhances the tracks and other details as well. The physics of DR 2.0 are also realistic as compared to DiRT Rally, which had some unrealistic physics.

5. Special Effects

The special effects are enhanced in DR 2.0, including dirt and smoke clouds. You can also see the tire marks in more detail in DR 2.0 as compared to DiRT Rally.

Which is Better?

The overall winner is, without a doubt, DiRT Rally 2.0 because of its added special effects, enhanced VR experience, and better physics and textures. However, if you want to save some money, you can consider playing DR as well.

The lighting effect is slightly better in DR, but this can also be adjusted in DR 2.0, so this is not a reason for concern.


The above-specified is a short yet detailed comparison between DiRT Rally and DiRT Rally 2.0. They both are pretty good with their own specific technicalities.
