Summary: I love WRC. That being said it's hard not to compare the 2. THis game almost hits the mark. Damage is good and the stages are very well done, but the car is a bit difficult to drive and I can't understand what Nicky Grist is mumbling.
I don't see why everyone is whining about this game

Summary: It is VERY realistic and challenging. If you want an arcade feel driving game, go play Gran Turismo 3. CMR 3 requires much more knowledge of how to make the car work in terms of tuning with the actual physics of the car.
Summary: Let me start by listing rally games that are better: CMR1, CMR2 and WRC. The gameplay just doesn't match up to those three games. Let me let Codemasters in on a little secret. We don't WANT 100% accurate physics in a video game.
Summary: This game is highly billed for it's obvious shortfalls: (1) poor graphics: I've seen better graphics from PSX games, there seems to be no difference between regular RCA output and the SVHS output; the polygons are huge and the color seems flat (2) poor gameplay: while the driving simulation may be...
Summary: I hated this game! Unlike Colin McRae Rally 2, you can't repair the car between stages (you just get a brand new car after each rally) and in championship mode you can only race with the ford focus (which sucks, by the way). If you're thinking about a rally game just try Colin 2.
Summary: Codemasters really dropped the ball on this one, making for a ridiculous championship mode in which you can ONLY be Colin McRae, and in which you can ONLY drive one car. They've also removed all the other options from CMR2.0, such as being able to run full rallies in other types of cars, etc.
Summary: If u like racing but aren't the best like me this game is not the one to buy it is really hard and u can't even put any codes in to help u unless u call a 1-900 number if i was u i wouldn't buy it and i would tell all my friends about it. Start a revolt against atari...
Summary: This game is very realistic when it comes to car physics, a feature which any real rally fans crave for, and a feature which World Rally Championship and V-Rally 3 sorely lacks. Graphics is good, but not great. It lacks a bit in game modes also. But the sense of speed and exhiliration is excellent.
Summary: I'd only just jumped into the world of the PS2 in October 2002, after years of PC games and a few things on the PS1. This was one of the games I got with the console. The first thing I noticed was the graphics, which are just about as good as you're gonna get for a game like this.
