Dirt 4 (£35 – PS4/XB1/PC)

We love Dirt Rally. It’s one of the most intense, authentic racing games ever made – so we had high hopes for the sequel. Sadly, it’s not quite as gritty and unrelenting as the previous game in the series – and the gameplay feels a bit watered down.

On the plus side there are more racing disciplines than before, plus there is a new system that generates rally courses procedurally – so you won’t get bored of running up and down the same road over and over again, because you won’t have to – although you can save your favourites if you want to.
