Colin McRae Rally 2.0

John Marine | 8/01/2010 03:03:00 AM | |
The Colin McRae Rally series (R.I.P., Colin McRae) represents the finest rally racing in gaming. While there isn't an FIA license, a lot of the great stages that make up some of the world's toughest rallies can be found in this game. Take part in a variety of rallies as of rally racing in 2000. You will visit a variety of countries and compete on a variety of surfaces. Take on the unpredictable Safari Rally in Kenya. Get mad air in the Finland rally. Get sideways in the snow and ice of Sweden. Take on the homogeneous mix of surfaces of the Rally Great Britain. Or if you're a REAL rally racer, try to survive the treacherous confines of the formidable Acropolis rally. You can also take on some one-on-one special stages. This even includes the one-on-one exclusive stage in Japan. You get to race some of the most recent rally cars. You can race cars such as the Ford Focus WRC, the Subaru Impreza, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6, and my personal favorite- the Peugeot 206 WRC among others. However, you can also unlock some classic rally cars like the Peugeot 205.

Here is a look at the box (this blog was initially to be about the PC version only):

CMR2: Arcade Mode.
Arcade Mode takes you in a circuit race featuring six cars to a track. Finish ahead of everybody else. Success in this mode unlocks new stages and new cars. You start off with Italy, Sweden, and Greece.

CMR2: Rally Racing.
When you race, you will go against 15 other racers. After every two stages, you have time to repair your car. Use the allotted sixty minutes more like credits to fix your car. You must finish 6th or better to compete in the next rally. You only do four stages on the easiest difficulty, eight stages on the normal difficulty, and the full ten stages on the hardest difficulty. The most important thing to remember about rally racing- pay attention to the pace notes. Try to put in a solid time for each section and each stage.

Here is a video preview of this title from YouTube:

Even though this game has released in 2001, it is still great fun to play. A lot of rally racing games have passed this game by graphically. Still, it remains a beautiful and intense rally racing experience. Do you want to play a classic racing game? Click on the graphic below to order on Amazon. This game plays just fine in XP even though it notes this game is for Win95, Win98, and Windows Me.
