  • Excerpt: The 2005 Rally gaming season is now officially open and we’re expecting some heated competition this year. Last year’s combatants for the “Best Rally Game” title were Sony’s own World Rally Championship III and the 2004 edition of Codemasters evergreen Colin McRae series. For my money, “The Flying Scotsman” was edged out at the line by Sony’s effort in the fun stakes, but what of this year’s overhaul’ First, we’ll ring the changes.

  • Excerpt: The steering wheel-gripping heart of Colin McRae Rally 2005 is the all-new Career Challenge, which takes players through a full professional rally career, driving the most diverse selection of rally cars. An incredible 23 individual rally events provide a personal challenge with real progression and rewards through a non-linear series of Challenges, Cups, SuperCups, Shields and Championships as you earn the right to complete with the very best.

Colin McRae Rally 2005

  • Conclusion: generated opponents really reduced the replay value for me. True rally fans may have a quibble with that assessment. And I use the word "quibble" because it is a word that only European speakers of English would use, and rally racing is really a European sport. European racing is really about the car and its driver versus the intricacies of the road, whereas American racing is really about drinking beer and watching cars drive in a big circle until one flips over and...

  • Conclusion: Colin McRae Rally 2005 is the best rally game I’ve played in a long time. The handling just feels oh-so right, and the cars look stunning. There’s enough to keep you busy here for a while thanks to the new career mode, and after you’ve gone through the offline modes, there’s also the online mode to try out, which extends the lifespan even more. Despite a couple of flaws and a strange lack of reset button, this game is worth selling your mother for.
  • Pros: Great graphics., Excellent handling., Engaging career mode., Lots of cars., The online mode (if you can find anyone to race with).
  • Cons: Some stages (Sweden in particular) are very annoying., Fussy auto-reset., No track reset button., Online mode could have been better.

  • Conclusion: The changes to Career mode will make it worth a purchase, even if you bought last year's edition. However, more needs to be done in next year's edition to keep the series not only one of the best in the genre, but also worth purchasing for long-term fans.

Un nouveau Colin Mcrae arrive

Game-Focus
2 March 2014
  • Summary: En conclusion Ce jeu est fidèle à la tradition de la série des CM, il est rapide avec de beaux circuits et est un jeu avec une balance très intéressante.  On doit le situer 2e derrière Rallisports Challenge 2 et devant Richard Burn's Rally. Je crois encore que les concepteurs de cette série, devront aller plus loin éventuellement. Colin Mcrae 2005 est le meilleur de la série mais il y a encore place à l'amélioration.
  • Pros: Des pistes intéressantes De beaux revêtements de pistes Des effets de pluies superbes Les caractéristiques réelles des autos Xbox Live Meilleur que la version 4
  • Cons: Le son aurait dû être meilleur Encore du travaille à faire au niveau du graphisme Ne révolutionne pas le genre

  • Excerpt: "Codemastersin Colin McRae Rally pelisarjasta on muodostumassa vuosittainen ilmestys. Vähäiset uudistukset edeltäjään verrattuna laskevat viidennen kolinin ralliarvoa ja pudottavat siltä pois "Editor's Choice" palkinnon, mutta kaikesta huolimatta Colin McRae Rally 2005 on kelpo rallipeli, varsinkin niille jotka eivät edellistä Colin McRae rallia hankkineet.
  • Pros: + Hauska pelata, + Vaurionmallinnus, + Grafiikka menettelee, + Äänet
  • Cons: - Loppujen lopuksi vähän uudistuksia, - Moninpeli vain haamuautoja vastaan

Colin McRae Rally 2005

Level 7
24 May 2005
  • Conclusion: Med lågupplösta marktexturer, kantiga träd och buskar borde Codemasters inse att deras grafikmotor är uråldrig. Även om bilarna, skadorna och väderffekterna imponerar på sina håll så är helthetsintrycket endast godkänt med plus i kanten. Bilarna känns sega, glider en bit ovanför underlaget och fartkänslan är långt från bra. Tysklands nya banor är trista och online-läget alldeles för snålt.
  • Pros: Skadeeffekterna, Den bländande solen, Mästerskapskänslan, Snyggt gränssnitt
  • Cons: Dålig fartkänsla, Trist och platt omgivning, Tysklands sträckor, Snålt online-läge

  • Conclusion: Dies alles ändert jedoch nichts daran, dass Fans dieses Spiel kaufen müssen. Denn schließlich zählt in erster Linie nicht nur die Grafik, sondern der Spielspaß. Und hier kann auch der neueste Teil auftrumpfen wie eh und je. Wer genügend Motivation mitingt, kann sich derart in das Gameplay festbeissen, dass er auch nach Monaten immer noch bessere Rundenzeiten erspielen kann.
