“Colin McRae Rally beats them all. It is surely the most well rounded, skilled-based, and authentic of them all.”
“It's also as close to a simulation as they come…”
“Should you buy it? Yes. For anyone who loves to drive cars, and especially rally cars, this is a must-have game that encompasses the sport of rally racing better than any other game yet.”
“Closer to a sim than any other rally racer on the system, Colin McRae Rally is a skill based game that's deep, challenging, and varied…”

Former World Champion Driver Colin McRae, known to die-hard fans around the globe as 'The Flying Scotsman', power slides his way into the Value Series for the high octane drive of a lifetime. It's just you and your car racing against the clock in conditions that would make wimpier drivers rush back to the safety of predictable tracks - and equally predictable opponents. Grab it now at the great value price!
Colin McRae Rally, developed using similar technology to its hit touring car game, is an accurate rallying simulation that recreates all the realism of the sport whilst maintaining frantic gameplay as you try to shave that last thousandth of a second off your nearest rival's time.
Power drive the greatest world rally cars, achieving winning times and drive point-to-point stages across the toughest terrains and tracks around the world. With Individual Stages, 8 International Rallies or the entire Championship, Colin McRae Rally takes handling to the edge.
With precisely modelled cars, and the specs in the physics model taken straight from the manufacturers, you'll need all of co-driver Nicky Grist's instructions and tuition from the master himself in the rally school if your going to make it to the stage finish without a prang.
As your driving ability improves, and the car is set up for optimal performance depending on the conditions and nature of the stage, power-sliding and handbrake turns become second nature. The handling and crashes are impressive (especially with Dual Shock compatibility). And with damage battering the car body and affecting handling (not to mention making the car dirty), it's best to keep on the track as much as possible. Don't worry too much though, there is a repair option in the car setup.
Colin McRae Rally - all the fun and realism of world rallying in one superb package.
