New screens show off just how pretty a little mud can be in Codemasters' DiRT 2, the sequel to 2007's acclaimed off-road racer.

DiRT 2 shows up the original DiRT in several different ways, featuring more cars, more real-world locations, and enhanced graphics courtesy of an enhanced version of the EGO game engine, as seen in Codemaster's GRID. Aside from the usual upgrades we expect from a sequel, DiRT 2 will also feature a robust online community to serve as a social hub for fans of off-road racing, complete with leader boards, news feeds, and "scribbles" that keep you posted on your friends' achievements in-game.

I'm really amazed by the visuals Codemasters achieves with the EGO engine. Mud has never looked so sexy.

The graphics look great but what about weather effects, snow, standing water? One of the coolest visual moments of rally racing is when they blast through puddles and streams. They should also let you drive off cliffs for extreme wrecks instead of just putting you back on the track.
