Atari Australia Press Quotes - Windows & PlayStation:
    ““A lot of people have been waiting a long time for CMR2 and I don’t think they will be disappointed. The brand new Arcade mode is what you will be playing after the pub. It adds bumper-bashing fun to the game.” PC Gaming Wolrd”

    ““The new and improved Colin McRae looks set to be another best seller. If TOCA 2 is anything to go by Codemasters are fully capable of producing strong sequels. This can only mean that Colin McRae Rally 2 looks like setting the PC rally standard all over again.” PC Zone”

    ““The god of rallying.” Play Magazine”

    DESCRIPTION:

    The defining moment for rally video games has been redefined. The sequel to the globally best selling Colin McRae Rally has been stripped down, rebuilt and engineered to be the most breathtaking, exhilarating rally racing experience on PC CDROM.

    Featuring McRae’s Ford Focus, Colin McRae Rally 2.0 delivers all the speed, all the thrills and looks and feels better than ever imaginable.

    In addition to the high-end rally driving action and the unparalleled car handling the brand is famous for, Colin McRae Rally 2.0 introduces a groundbreaking, riotous, action arcade game mode. Completely unique and original – get all the power of a simulator and play it like an arcade game. Offering 6 cars racing head-to-head over 8 unique looped circuits, put your foot down for an all-out, all-action rough and ready race.

    Colin McRae Rally was arguably the finest arcade rally game on the PC CDROM. It's handling, look and options had everything you needed in a game. A lot of pretenders to the crown appeared after its release but none could match it. Now Colin and his co-driver, Nicky Grist (who gives you directions as you drive), are back to show the world how to make a rally game in Colin McRae Rally 2, now on PC CDROM.

    GAME FEATURES:
  • Stunning new graphics engine, immaculate car handling
  • 8 global rally venues, including new countries & all new stages
  • Entirely separate Arcade game, 6 cars on unique circuits
  • New 4WD cars including the new Focus and a classic series
  • Incredibly smart new front end, plus weather forecasting
  • Dynamic action replays with cameraman direction
  • All new “Neural Net” Artificial Intelligence for opponent drivers
  • Refined damage & car deformation graphics / physics system
