Nice rally game, but the console roots are a bit too obvious

Kasey Chang, MobyGames
21 April 2004
  • Conclusion: CMR2 is a nice rally with heavy console roots. The menu system is atrociously console-ish. The control mapping doesn't save my settings, even though it does allow me to map accel/brake to keyboard and steering to joystick (many games can't go that).
  • Pros: Decent handling, stages that are not too long, lots of cars, lots of countries with widely varying stages, decent graphics
  • Cons: Lousy menus that you can't use a mouse with (just console-style left/right/select), control configuration that can't be saved right, some stages impossible to do well

A great rally racing game for the PC platform

Chris Martin, MobyGames
30 January 2003
  • Conclusion: Overall, the game is a very detailed and soild racing game. Asides of the few graphical glitches and quirks, it's a demanding game that is ultimately rewarding, that takes concentration and patience to win. A solid game for any racing fan, and easy enough to pick and play for the casual gamer.
  • Pros: Colin McRae Rally 2.0 (CMR2) is a fantastic rally racing game for the PC.
  • Cons: The Sound is great, the motor sound and trie squeal sound great - BUT - for some reason they incuded music to listen to while driving. While that may work with the Arcade mode, it doesn't work with the actual rally racing. You have to concentrate and pay close attention to your co-driver, and hav...

  • Excerpt: In my opinion Colin McRae Rally was the finest rally game that was available for the PSX. It’s handling, looks and options made it all you could want in a rally game. I noticed after it’s release that a lot of “wannabe rally games” or “pretenders to the crown” started to appear, but none could match...

  • Excerpt: I'm going a bit backwards at the moment. Many people will be aware of my stance on Videogames and especially the Dreamcast (sob), but just recently I've been getting a bit misty eyed. Nostalgia of sorts has crept into my life - which is a bit sad, as I'm only 19.
  • Pros: A few stages ahead of the pack when it was released
  • Cons: Now out of date

  • Pros: Great racing .

  • Excerpt: After playing Colin McRae Rally , I thought why not treat myself so I went out and bought myself the then new version Colin McRae Rally 2 from a local shop. I was really impressed with the gameplay, graphics and sound. But then again I had to be after paying over £30 for it.
