Look, I don't mean to call Codemasters out, or say that DiRT 2 isn't attractive visually, but when it comes to these latest screenshots for the off-road racer, there appears to be more than meets the eye.
No, I'm not talking about Transformers, unfortunately; I mean the images look modified (I've seen a few 'shops in my day), and not indicative of the actual game. Which, let's face it, isn't anything new for the videogame industry.
Or maybe, just maybe, DiRT 2 looks so good that it'll have you thinking there's visual trickery afoot. In either case, the purpose of these images is to remind us of the game's existence, more than anything else. Job well done, guys.
