DIRT 5 has been released and the critic scores are in, there is a heap of info below and you can watch the accolades trailer, or you can be here and read my quick break down on what DIRT 5 is all about...
I've played DIRT 5 on the Xbox One X and the Xbox Series S. The game itself is a definite leap in the DIRT series and is just good fun. One thing though, The Series S doesn't do it justice, the One X runs it smooth and crisp, the Series S is only good for the ray tracing bits which are a small part. 
Quite simply, if you like dirt racing titles then you need to try out DIRT 5. If you can get your hands on the PS5, Series X or on the PC it will definitely be a good opener to next gen gaming.

Codemasters® today shares the DIRT 5 accolades trailer following critical acclaim since launch on 6 November. Developed by the Codemasters Cheshire studio, DIRT 5 has been praised for its diverse mix of game modes from traditional racing across global locations, to the innovative new Playgrounds and four-player split-screen, as well as its implementation of next-generation features on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation® 5 including smooth 120 frames-per-second gameplay.

DIRT 5 offers a thrilling and accessible experience for players of all abilities, featuring 13 vehicle classes to race across 70 routes in 10 global locations. DIRT 5’s Career stars the voice talents of gaming icons Troy Baker and Nolan North alongside the effervescent duo of James Pumphrey and Nolan Sykes of Donut Media, as well as cameos from the world of gaming and motorsport.

The DIRT series’ most ambitious game mode to-date, Playgrounds, invites players to Create, Share, and Discover custom arenas across three event types: Gate Crasher, Smash Attack, and Gymkhana.

A rich livery editor, Photo Mode, Arcade, and Time Trial round off this densely populated title.
