  • Excerpt: Can you believe that it is four years since Colin Mcrae rally first came out? If you missed the gloriously entertaining off-road racer first time round then You certainly don’t want to make the same mistake again. In a word this game is fabulous, and far better than it’s rival at the time, v-rally.
  • Pros: great graphics and the playability
  • Cons: none

  • Excerpt: I have played a lot of rally games on the Playstation, and I have to say this is one of the best, and certainly the most fun. The game isn't particulary realistic, but it is fast and challenging. The racing takes place against the clock in one of many stages, all in different countries.
  • Pros: Fun
  • Cons: Old
