Game Vortex (9.5 out of 10) (95%)

Having watched the franchise land and played it with lots of love in the past, I'm glad to see such a worthy version released for the small console. GBA might eventually improve a game like this with graphics upgrades, but I'm hard pressed to imagine a substantial improvement in gameplay or mechanics. Really, for what I remember as the experience of playing Mr. McRae on the PlayStation, this recent GBA release captures the magic and brings hardcore rally racing...into your pocket! Now the question becomes: Is that a 'turn 2 left, care tree inside' in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?

Colin McRae Rally 2.0 is a fantastic racer and one that no rally fan should be without. It's hard to convey just how well Spellbook translated the series to the GBA and why it's so addictive. The ramping difficulty was a bit offsetting, but overall, this is one of the most enjoyable racers - handheld or otherwise - that I've played in a long time. Don't let this one pass you by; the lack of hype will definitely make this one a sleeper hit.

With hidden cars to unlock, fast paced stages and a battery back-up, Colin McRae 2.0 is easy to pick up and play for a few minutes or a few hours. This title is a must for any rally-racing fan and for anyone looking for something a little more realistic than a mascot filled kart racer.

IGN (8.9 out of 10) (89%)

It's going to be heated competition with all the rally games out or coming out for the Game Boy Advance this year, but you honestly will not be disappointed with the gameplay in Colin McRae Rally 2.0 on the GBA. Yes, the graphics on the surface are a bit on the low-quality side, but you just have to see it in action to appreciate everything that's going on in the game. The pros (gameplay modes, physics model, single cartridge multiplayer) definitely outweight the cons (bad menu, low-res textures), and to sneer at the game because of some low-quality screenshots would be doing an injustice to both the game itself, and your potential (and inevitable) enjoyment.

Anspruchsvolle Rallye-Simulation mit fordernder Steuerung. Grafisch leider etwas trist.

Game Chronicles (8.1 out of 10) (81%)

If you are looking for pretty graphics then you might want to check out any of the other dozen or so other racers available for your GBA, but if you want a realistic racing game with an above average physics engine then this is the game you want to be driving. With plenty of licensed cars and excellent track designs, Colin McRae Rally 2.0 is a virtual tour-de-force of rally racing action that will keep you (and your friends) busy for months to come.

Game Over Online (80 out of 100) (80%)

Drawbacks aside, Colin McRae 2.0 offers a small glimpse of how intense rally racing can be as you plow through tracks full of gravel, snow, mud and dirt. While it's the first Colin McRae product to hit the Game Boy Advance, it feels like an established title that I hope we'll be seeing on a perennial basis. It's all about anticipation and using the two gas and brake pedals to get some connection going between the driver and machine to achieve a singular goal. That type of special relationship, where the human-machine duo work as one, is what driving is really all about. When you get down to the bottom of it all, rally racing is pretty fun. On the Game Boy Advance, your vehicle or ticket to that fun will most likely be Colin McRae 2.0.

GameSpy (79 out of 100) (79%)

Though hardware limitations prevent the game from packing quite the same punch as its console brethren, Colin McRae Rally 2.0 is still a perfect fit for those with a vested interest in having a little rally action on the go. And, for all the staunch console gamers out there, do consider that it might be just the thing to tide you over until Colin McRae Rally 3 comes out later this year.

When you're in full flight and pulling off high-speed, controlled skids, the game is brilliant. When you crash it sucks, and only a master of concentration with extreme patience will drain every ounce of pleasure from CMR2.

Stand der Name Colin McRae auf der PlayStation noch fĂŒr erstklassigen Rallye-Spaß. sieht die Situation auf dem GBA schon anders aus. Die erste ErnĂŒchterung bekommt man förmlich aufs Auge gedrĂŒckt, denn die Grafik kann mit der Genre-Referenz V-Rally 3 nicht ansatzweise mithalten. Die platten, langweiligen Strecken erhalten nur durch die verschiedenen BodenbelĂ€ge etwas Abwechslung. Diese wirken sich auch sehr auf das Handling der Fahrzeuge aus, die ohnehin schon schwer unter Kontrolle zu halten sind. V-Rally 3 spielt sich da wesentlich leichter. Besser ist schon der Sound, der mit guter (englischer) Sprachausgabe des Co-Piloten aufwarten kann. Simulationsfans werden sich ĂŒber das altbewĂ€hrte und ausgereifte Schadensmodell freuen und sich ĂŒber die miese Kollisionsabfrage im Arcade-Modus Ă€rgern. Gutes Rennspiel, aber nicht der erhoffte Überhammer.

Colin Mc Rae Rally Ă  la hauteur de nos attentes. Le jeu est trĂšs divertissant et permettra Ă  tous de goĂ»ter aux joies des excĂšs de vitesses sur GBA. D’une rĂ©alisation soignĂ©e et d’un gameplay passionnant, il ne peut que vous plaire !
