The only downsides are that the music can get annoying with time, and the controls seem to be a little more strict than other racing games. However, N-Gagers looking for a true racing simulation will find a lot to enjoy in this game.

Overall this is a wonderful little conversion of a classic game. It shows what potential the N-Gage can have as a gaming machine if given a little love and attention. Even those not particularly enthralled by racing games as a genre should give this a look as the challenge of setting the fastest time is one of the purest forms of gaming addiction there is. Great stuff.

Much like the console version of the same name, Colin McRae Rally 2005 is an excellent rally title and certainly not a bad first entry in the racing genre for the N-Gage. The value is high too giving the sheer amount of tracks and vehicles available, but also because of the Bluetooth and Arena support.

A realistic, simulation driving experience like no other on the N-gage, Colin McRae Rally 2005 manages to deliver an entertaining racing experience with lots of gameplay depth. Gamers hoping for something a bit more challenging and in-depth than the usual street racing titles would be wise to check out love Colin McRae Rally 2005. Another fine addition to the N-Gage library.

Colin McRae Rally 2005 is a faithful adaptation of a very successful game. From audiovisual and gameplay standpoints, the game's adherence to realism is remarkable, which will delight rally racing enthusiasts. Colin McRae is worthy of its lofty name and provenance, and it's one of the very best racing games available for its platform.

The world hasn't seen a mobile racer this good before and it probably won't see another until the PSP is released. Why wait two months for something that might not even occur when you could be engrossed in a great game right now? You've already got an N-Gage. Whether it's sitting in your closet, buried under your desk, or collecting dust under the bed doesn't matter. All that matters is that you spent a fortune for a mobile game device that didn't have nearly enough reasons to justify its hefty price tag. With games like Colin McRae Rally 2005 in stores now, N-Gage is finally justified.

Head-to-head Bluetooth races also give you another car to occupy the courses, and the experience is as seamless as you'd expect. If I had to pick one type of racing sub-genre to play, rally wouldn't be it (I'm a bigger fan of Destruction Derby 2 or the Burnout series). Regardless, Colin McRae Rally 2005 is a stunning achievement on N-Gage, and handheld gaming as a whole. If you've been dissatisfied with driving on the go like I have, take this baby for a spin.

Colin McRae 2005 for N-Gage works well, but the steering, soundtrack and sound effects still need some work. The great amount of tracks and vehicles available does make it a good buy. Having no real Multiplayer via N-Gage Arena and only Bluetooth is a little drawback, but overall it's a fine racing game. Colin McRae 2005 would make a fine addition to anyone’s N-Gage library.

To say the N-Gage needed software like this early is an understatement. Sadly, it was a few years too late and the system has long since left gamer's minds. For that hardcore set still playing, Colin McRae Rally 2005 is a necessary software investment.

En voilà une bien belle adaptation. La durée de vie plus que substantielle, aidée par un gameplay attractif et une technique plus ou moins honnête font de cette version N-Gage un bon divertissement oscillant entre la simulation et l'arcade. Riche en sensations malgré plusieurs problèmes mineurs, vous ne devez certainement pas laisser passer cette occasion de retrouver de bonnes sensations de conduite sur votre console. Production bien pensée, bien maîtrisée, ce Colin 2005 rejoint la petite logithèque de la console de Nokia et trône désormais aux côtés de Urban GT au rayon des jeux de courses à fort pouvoir attractif.
