DiRT 2 Trophy Guide. Difficulty: n/o An arcade style rally racing game featuring off-road events across Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America. Due to the closure of the DiRTNET servers, two of the online trophies cannot be unlocked.
Dirt 2 (known as Colin McRae: Dirt 2 in Europe) is an arcade-style rally racing game, and a sequel to Dirt (Colin McRae: Dirt) released on the PS3 in 2007 before trophy support. The game features a set of off-road events which takes place across Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America, as well as five different event types, plus a multiplayer mode, and features the voices of professional rally drivers, such as Ken Block, Travis Pastrana, Tanner Foust, and Dave Mirra.
Dirt 2 received mostly positive reviews, with an average score of 87% for its realistic graphics and beautiful scenery, simple interface, and overall fun.
This was a fairly easy game to platinum, and would have received a 2-star rating, provided that you had a boosting partner for some of the online trophies. However, while the multiplayer is still available, Codemasters has shut down their DiRTNET servers, which are used for accessing weekly tournament information. As a result, two trophies - Tourney and I Ain't Afraid Of No Ghosts! - can no longer be acquired, making this game's Platinum Not Obtainable.
However, if you simply wish to add this game to your trophy count, the 39 offline trophies are quite easy to collect.
The Platinum for this game is Not Obtainable, due to the DiRTNET servers being closed, which means two trophies can no longer be earned. However, if you still wish to collect the remaining 45 trophies, here are some tips:
You'll first want to head into Career mode and make your way from beginning to end, winning each race. Since there's no trophy related to the difficulty mode, you can go ahead and select Easy if you wish. Along the way, avoid spending money during your first ten races, in order to unlock the Big Bucks! trophy.
Once that's done, it's simply a matter of mopping up anything you've missed during your Career mode. Check out the DiRT 2 trophy guide links under our Links tab for specific details to what you need.
Last, there are the online trophies. Despite DiRTNET being closed, the multiplayer server is still open, which means there are 6 more trophies you can still collect. Some of these are tough without boosting. Particularly Rush Hour, as not only do you need to find seven other players, but you need to win against these seven other players, as well. Make friends with people you meet, and check out the forums under our Links tab, to try and organize a party and take turns allowing each player to win.
