Excerpt: **I know this is in the wrong category, but there still isn't a category for Colin Mcrae Rally 3 yet, so hopefully ciao will move this one, along with the mad cabbies when they create a category for it!** Colin Mcrae Rally 3.0 was the first rally game I had played on either the playstation or the Playstation 2, it was also the first Colin Mcrae game I have ever played, and to sum it all up in 3 word’s, I’m VERY impressed?
Pros: absolutely fantastic game, keeps you entertained, enough stages for prolonged gameplay
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 the excellence of Colin McRae. Now, he and his co-driver Nicky Grist, have returned to show the world how you make a good rally game.
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. 'Colin Mcrae 2.0' has been firmly stuck in my borrowed PSX (mine was sold around Christmas time for funding purposes. I'm still aching from the loss) for the last few weeks.
Pros: A few stages ahead of the pack when it was released
Excerpt: I recieved Colin Mcrae rally as a gift for My 11th birthday, and from the second i played it, I knew I was in for GRAPHICS:One of the things that came to my attention was it's excellent graphics,at first I even thought it was real! HANDELING:the day I got Colin Mcrae rally I realised how hard the controls were, but after a few days I got the hang of it, like everyone else.
Pros: Excellent graphics
Cons: Doesn't contain real rally driver other than Colllin Mcrae
Excerpt: I never played Colin McRae rally but im sure it not as good as this. Im only borrowing Colin McRae rally 2 from a mate. You don't need long to compleat this game but there's still alot to do like compleat all four stages of every rally with all the cars,win new cars,win new paint styles and win the knock out compertion. Before racing you can alter your car to perfection or just the way you like it.
Excerpt: Overall I think it is a great game but I do find the graphics a little disappointing as often trees and other items just appear in front of you without previously being shown in the distance. The sound and colours on the game are very good, with a very natural feel to the grass and the trees this gives a good feel to the game. There is a good choice of weather conditions which include cloudy, bright or drizzle and this helps to make good races.
Excerpt: The first colin mcrae was a good game that suffered from poor handling and limited scope. This they have fixed, and so much more... This is probably the finest rally simulator on the playstation. I use the term simulator rather than game, as its a fully fledged beast of a game, that is programmed in such a way as to make u think about how you would approach a course in real life.
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. First I had to set up my car, which was quite fun, It took a while to get all the formats of the car which then helps you to get the optimum car set-up.
Excerpt: Colin Mcrae was an excellent game for the PSX. In fact that was the best selling game on the market. I was thinking there was no way there was going to be a better racing game than this till one day they released Colin Mcrae Rally 2.0. Now this was one of the best racing games I have ever played. When you play this you will definitely know the difference of quality in this game.
Excerpt: Colin Mcrae is a good exciting rally game, you can choose from cars as: Subaru Impezza, Mitsubishi Lancer, Ford Focus, Pegeot 206 and so on. All the cars are in full racing colours and even the sound of the cars is realistic to. You get fire coming out of the exaust when you red line the car it has some of the qualitys of colin McRae rally 1 but upgraded in graphics and sound.
