Yeah Dirt 2 is fun in its own way. Graphics are pretty much the same as 3 so really you can play both and have loads of fun.

DiRT 3 is effectively DiRT 2 with weather conditions which effects handling (snow for example).

For the price, DiRT 2 is probably best.

Dirt 2 is immensely fun, the fact that you can take standard rally cars on tracks which were clearly designed for Monster Trucks is great. Leads to a rather fun experience.

Dirt 3 - in my opinion- is even better. You can't do crazy car and track combos like in Dirt 2, but the fun modes like Outbreak more than make up for it! Plus the team games. The cars also handle a bit less... arcade-like. In Dirt 2, every corner was the same feel, get the car sideways and straight on the exit and you'll be fast. On Dirt 3 it's similar, but much harder because the cars don't all react the same way to swinging into a corner.

I'd definitely say to pick up Dirt 3 without question. It's a great game, it even won IGN or Gamespot's best racing game of 2011. It also looks really nice with everything right up.

They are very different games, Dirt 3 should have been called Drift Racer that's how different the games are. I like Dirt 3 more I think but drifting has become a main focus of the game.
